Microgaming Develops Halloween Slot Machine Game
Michael Myers is coming to create havoc on your computer screen in Microgaming's upcoming Halloween slot machine game, which is based on the iconic 1978 John Carpenter horror movie.
The online slot game will revolve around the film that starred Jamie Lee Curtis who has to fight off a crazed madman that stalks her around the town of Haddonfield, Illinois. The movie was a massive success, making more than $70 million at the box office on just a $300,000 budget. Details on the upcoming game have not been revealed, but it's likely that the game will be deployed in time for Halloween this year.
Speaking about the game's announcement Microgaming's David Reynolds said, "Halloween is a true classic and set the standard for modern horror films. It was immeasurably influential in the slasher genre of movies, so it is great to be working with such an iconic and respected brand. Embracing all the elements of what made the movie such a success, our games team are busy developing a video slot game for release later in the year."
Compass Senior VP Ryan Freimann added: "We are excited to team up with Creative Licensing and Microgaming to bring Michael Myers and Halloween home to all of our loyal fans in the best possible ways through top licensees who create products we feel honor the character, film, and franchise."
