Microgaming is once again signing a worldwide exclusivity, as it will be the first time that the musical, later adapted in 2004 by Joel Schumacher, will be translated into a video slot. Among the films from successful musicals, The Phantom of the Opera had seen an incredible ascent and estimated revenues of around $ 160 million all around the world.
