There has been much talk recently about Microgaming’s rights to the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy. What many believed were rumours are now being confirmed as truth, as the online casino developer has just announced that the new Lord of the Rings online slots game will be available at online gambling websites in September.
Video game characters and comic book superheroes were previously the most sought after figures in the online gambling world, but now developers are setting their sights on movies. While video games and comic books appeal to a niche audience, movies have a much broader reach and online casino operators believe that more players will flock to their websites to play online slots based on popular films.
Many branded online slots spawn sequels. For example, the original Tomb Raider and Thunderstruck online slots games gained so much popularity that Microgaming had to create sequels to accommodate all of the fans. This time, Microgaming is planning on create sequels well in advance, as the games will be released in the same order as the movies: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers and The Return of the King.
Various Microgaming casinos are already getting ready for the launch of these games. So expect to see some great promotions from All Slots and Spin Palace over the next few weeks to celebrate the new Lord of the Ring Slots.
