Microgaming Announces Upcoming Terminator 2 Slot

January 20, 2014


Microgaming is well-known for their wide range of games. With over 600 titles, it's something that they have come to be known for since they have the most games of any online casino software provider. Their games have a huge array of themes including super heros, sports, areas of the world, video games, movies and television shows. Once in a while they will get the licensing rights to a big brand, and that will make for some incredible news as players anticipate the upcoming games that could come as a result of those licensing rights.

They have recently announced that they have gained the licensing rights to Terminator 2: Judgment Day, one of the most iconic action films in history. The movie itself came out in the summer of 1991 during the haydey of action films, and it was considered very much ahead of its time for its extensive use of CGI. This brought the time-traveling characters in the story alive like no one had ever seen before, and it allowed for a high-level development of characters due to the new possibilities. This was seen in particular with the villain T1000 who works as a sort of metallic shape-shifter.

Microgaming CEO Roger Raatgever said, "We are incredibly excited to be developing an online slot around the Terminator 2 movie — it is a brand which has mass appeal and lends itself perfectly to the world of online gaming. As explosive as the film, we are in the process of creating an action-packed, jaw-dropping slot; it's a classic in the making." One of the features that they are going to be using is a 3×5 video slot with the 243 ways format that expands with an extra row to form a 1024 ways game during the free spins bonus round, something that has never been seen before.

When you want to talk about casino software developers who have pushed the envelope on what was thought possible, Microgaming is one of the first names that always comes up. They have been behind several of the most important developments in the online casino world, and they were the innovators in the free spins bonus round with multipliers with games like Thunderstruck. Overall, Microgaming is going to be showing the world again what they can do with the upcoming Terminator 2 video slot which is scheduled to be released this summer.
