Microgaming has announced plans to unveil a new Game of Thrones® branded online slot later this year.
The deal builds on a successful branded relationship with HBO that was penned six years ago when Microgaming launched its first Game of Thrones branded slot game in 2014.
Marked for release later this year, Game of Thrones™ Power Stacks™ will feature some of the leading characters and personalities from the hit HBO® series Game of Thrones, ready to lead players on a new pursuit for rewards through the world of Westeros. The branded slot is being developed by Slingshot Studios, an independent studio that is providing innovative, high-quality content exclusively for Microgaming.
Taking global mainstream audiences by storm, Game of Thrones is one of the most popular entertainment brands in the world. The genre-defining TV series has netted hundreds of award nominations and wins, including 160 Primetime Emmy® Award nominations with 59 wins, and seven Golden Globe Award nominations with one win.
The eighth season of the show reached phenomenal status, with the season finale being watched by 19.3 million viewers across all HBO platforms. The series has given rise to a number of officially licensed products, including the immensely popular slot game by Microgaming, available in both 243 ways and 15 lines.
Now fans of the series can look forward to a whole new Game of Thrones journey, as the latest title is set to join Microgaming’s award-winning portfolio of branded content. Microgaming will be celebrating its latest Game of Thrones slot at ICE London 2020.
Jean-Luc Ferriere, Chief Commercial Officer at Microgaming, comments: “The Game of Thrones brand has garnered a devoted following among viewers, along with incredible media attention. We are excited to extend our partnership with HBO to supply a new Game of Thrones online slot that honours and builds on the brand’s immense popularity. In the spirit of the show, we will be working hard to deliver a quality, feature-rich slot game so that players can enjoy an authentic Game of Thrones themed gaming experience.”
