Microgaming has signed a licensing agreement to create online slots based on the epic television drama series Game of Thrones.
The game is scheduled to be launched some time later this year.
“We are incredibly excited to have signed a licensing agreement for Game of Thrones, a highly relevant and extremely popular show,” said Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming. “We plan on taking all of the features of the small screen fantasy epic to create a masterpiece of a slot. This will be a fantastic addition to our branded content games portfolio. Our operators and their players have plenty to look forward to this year!”
The Emmy-award winning drama series is based on George R.R. Martin’s bestselling book series “A Song of Ice and Fire”. The story is set in the fantasy world of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. The series follows the struggles among the realm’s noble families for control of the Iron Throne. The series made its debut on American television in 2011, and quickly became a TV hit worldwide, winning numerous awards, including a Golden Globes Nomination for Best Television Series in 2012.
