Microgaming has signed a licensing agreement with Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc., brokered by Creative Licensing Corporation, in terms of which it will have exclusive rights to the Tarzan name for online slot games.
Since the novel, Tarzan of the Apes, was published in 1912, Tarzan has become the most filmed character in motion picture history and has been portrayed by 29 different characters.
The Tarzan online slot, which is due to launch later this year on desktop as well as mobile devices, is bound to enhance Microgaming’s vast portfolio of branded content. The slot game will feature Tarzan as the main character as well as Jane, Archimedas and several of his jungle friends.
According to Roger Raatgever, the Chief Executive Officer of Microgaming, Tarzan is recognized all over the world and they are thrilled to be launching a slot hosted by this timeless character. Raatgever added that they can honestly say that the online slot will not disappoint Tarzan fans.
James Sullos, President of Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc., added that they could not be more pleased to license Tarzan and his friends to such a quality company as Microgaming. He also said that their extensive experience in developing online slot games assures them that they will build a game that will attract many fans and players to the game from around the globe.
