Microgaming is thrilled to reveal that it has signed a licensing agreement with Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc., brokered by Creative Licensing Corporation, in terms of which it has been awarded the exclusive rights to the Tarzan name for online slot games.
The History of Tarzan
Tarzan was created by Edgar Rice Burroughs who published his novel “Tarzan of the Apes” in 1912. The hero of the jungle has since become the most filmed character in motion picture history and has been depicted by no less than 29 different actors. Tarzan has also been portrayed in two Broadway stage productions, comic strips, a number of television series and more.
The Tarzan online slot will enhance Microgaming’s already vast portfolio of branded content and is scheduled to launch to operators within the next few months on desktop as well as mobile devices.
The new online slot will feature Tarzan as the main character who will host the game with Jane and Archimedas as well as several of his jungle friends on the reels of the game.
The Tarzan slot game will offer a number of exciting features as well as characteristic sounds which include Tarzan’s famous yell.
