Microgaming signs agreement for Jurassic Park franchise
Iconic film trilogy roars to life with innovative online slot games
ISLE OF MAN – Microgaming (www.microgaming.co.uk) has signed a licensing agreement with Universal Partnerships & Licensing to produce online slot games centred on one of the biggest film trilogies in motion picture history, Jurassic Park.
Released in 1993, Jurassic Park became an instant phenomenon. Featuring Academy Award®-winning visual effects and ground-breaking filmmaking, this epic film is sheer movie-making magic that was 65 million years in the making. The popularity of Jurassic Park led to a second and third installment released in 1997, The Lost World: Jurassic Park and 2001, Jurassic Park III respectively, as well as a successful 3D re-release of the original in 2013. The license includes this classic collection of films.
Now, fans of Jurassic Park can also look forward to reliving the adventure with an online slot game coming this summer. It will be a 243 ways-to-win game with five different free spin modes depending on the DNA analysis of the dinosaur randomly selected.
Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming, comments: "Jurassic Park is a seminal movie - its stunning visual effects and computer-generated imagery set a new benchmark in the industry. 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."
Microgaming will be previewing the Jurassic Park online slot at ICE Totally Gaming, ExCeL London, 4th to 6th February 2014, at stand number N11-120.
About Jurassic Park
Since Universal Pictures and Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment first joined forces to unleash an adventure over 65 million years in the making, Jurassic Park has become the “premier” and “authentic” dinosaur brand the world over. When Jurassic Park was released in 1993, it became an instant phenomenon. In the years that followed, two additional films were released – The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park III – bringing the trilogy's worldwide box office total to more than $2 billion. The franchise continues to resonate with consumers worldwide via consumer products, popular attractions at Universal Studios Theme Parks and annual airings of the three films on a multitude of television networks. The Jurassic Park Ultimate Trilogy, recently made available on Blu-ray for the first time, showcases all three films in high definition with 7.1 surround sound and hours of new bonus features.
