Branded Online Pokies from Microgaming worth Checking Out

Publishing: July 9, 2014

Microgaming is a leading online casino software provider which has won a string of industry awards over the years for its impressive products. Microgaming has developed non-downloadable Flash and Quickfire platforms, as well as a downloadable Viper client and also a mobile casino product which is known as Microgaming Go.

The company has produced over 690 individual games with more than 1000 game variants and a growing number of these games are labelled as ‘branded’ pokies. This means that Microgaming has obtained licensing agreements with various organisations to legally develop these games. Some of their most famous branded pokies include Tomb Raider, Tomb Raider Secret of the Sword (aka Tomb Raider 2), Battlestar Galactica and more recently, Terminator 2.

Some of the other branded pokies from Microgaming that you may also be familiar with include titles such as the Osbournes (which is a much older title), Playboy, Hitman, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises and Hellboy. The Terminator 2 pokie launched towards the beginning of June 2014 and it was produced after Microgaming signed a licensing agreement with Creative Licensing Corporation, which represents Studiocanal for Terminator 2 licensing.

Speaking at the time was Microgaming’s CEO, Roger Raatgever, “We've taken the core elements of the iconic Terminator 2 film to create an online slot that does the brand justice. Visually it is stunning and it has a fitting game mechanic that is completely unique to the online gaming market. Our operators and their players will be awestruck by our creation; we are incredibly excited about the game launch today.”

This new T2 pokie from Microgaming arrived in numerous Australian online casinos throughout June 2014 and just like all of the other branded pokies mentioned in this article, the new T2 pokie is also available in the real cash mode and in the free play mode. There’s plenty more for Australian players to look forward to in 2014 as well. Towards the end of June 2014, Microgaming’s official YouTube channel added a new video previewing the company’s latest branded pokie, Jurassic Park, which is based on the 1993 blockbuster movie of the same name.

This can only mean that a new Jurassic Park pokie will also be coming soon. “Jurassic Park is a seminal movie - its stunning visual effects and computer-generated imagery set a new benchmark in the industry,” said the CEO back in January when plans for this pokie were first announced. “It's a film that we can draw parallels from in terms of our game creation and our aim to deliver the most visionary and imaginative gaming experiences to the end player. The Jurassic Park brand is legendary, and our game development team is busy creating an all-mighty slot for release later in the year.”

That’s not all though. Microgaming fans will also soon be able to log in to their favourite Australian online casino to find another branded pokie called Game of Thrones. Microgaming signed a licensing agreement several months back with HBO Global Licensing to develop this currently unreleased pokie and as soon as this one arrives, we will be the first to let you know. All of the comments in this article came from Microgaming’s official website.
