You Haven’t Heard the Last of Tarzan: Microgaming Signs Deal
Microgaming recently signed a licensing agreement with Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc., brokered by Creative Licensing Corporation, and now holds the exclusive rights to the Tarzan Slots ™ name for online slot games. Tarzan of the Apes began as a novel in 1912 and was written by Edgar Rice Burroughs. It was then relived in film and has stuck around until current with online slots. The jungle hero is the most filmed character in motion picture history, and has been portrayed by 29 different actors since 1918!
The Tarzan online slot will launch to operators later in the year on desktop and mobile, enhancing Microgaming's diverse portfolio of branded content. The upcoming slot game promises to host Jane, Archimedes and a number of his jungle friends, and of course, Tarzan's famous chest beating yell.
Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming said, "Tarzan is recognized the world over, so we're excited to be launching a slot hosted by this timeless character. Our highly talented games team relish working with a new brand, to build a game that celebrates and embraces it. Having seen the game in prototype, I can honestly say the online slot will not disappoint Tarzan fans; operators and their players can look forward to the game's release this winter. We could not be more pleased to license Tarzan™ and his friends to such a quality company as Microgaming. Their extensive experience in developing online slot games assures us they will build a game that will attract many fans and players to the game from around the globe."
