Just in time to celebrate the latest movie in the famous Batman
trilogy, the Dark Knight Rises, the online casino software group, Microgaming
has announced the launch of The Dark Knight video slot game at online casinos.
Microgaming launched The Dark Knight video slot to some of
its leading online casinos in the network, and already the game is making waves
in the industry.
The new game is packed with amazing graphics, in-game features and
the chance to win big through a four tier progressive jackpot.
The Dark Knight is based on famous comic book character Batman
created by DC Comics in 1939. Warner Brothers purchased to the rights to the
comic book series and created Christopher Nolan's trilogy, The Dark Knight. The
Dark Knight Rises, set to be released this summer, is the third movie in this
Microgaming Excited About New Launch
"We are extremely excited about the launch of the The Dark Knight
video slot and the ongoing success of our relationship with DC Entertainment,"
said the Chief Executive Officer of Microgaming, Roger Raatgever. "At
Microgaming, we believe in pursuing partnerships that will result in the
creation of the best quality content for our games portfolio."
Raatgever said that Microgaming had collaborated closely with DC
Entertainment over the past few months in the development of a "dynamic and
realistic tribute to the blockbuster brand of The Dark Knight."
"Fans of DC Comics and the film series will not be disappointed as
their favourite heroes and villains are brought to life on the reels of this
exciting new slot game," said Raatgever.
Batman is Globally Recognised Icon
Characters out of DC Comics are among the most recognised in the
world, although Batman is probably considered a globally recognised icon. As
such, it makes sense that a video slot game based on this character will be an
instant hit among online gamblers. The group is also planning to release a
sequel to The Dark Knight video slot next year.
Batman is found today in over 15 monthly comic books issued by
DC Comics, available in 30 different languages and distributed in 60 countries
across the globe.
The first The Dark Knight movie was released in 2008 and became
the third highest grossing move in the United States of all times - taking in
over $500 million at home and $1 billion around the world.
With this type of success, there is little wonder that The Dark
Knight slot game is set to take the online casino world by storm.
