Game developer and casino content provider Microgaming has announced a renewal of a licensing agreement that will let it produce Tarzan-themed gambling products.
The deal with Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc, brokered by Creative Licensing Corporation, is a continuation of a relationship that started in 2016.
Under this new partnership, fans of the iconic character won’t have to wait long for a new video slot based on the property.
One of the supplier’s third-party studios, Fortune Factory, will soon produce a sequel to the previous Tarzan offering.
Me Tarzan, You Microgaming
As one of the most popular characters of 20th century literature and film, Tarzan has been the subject of many adaptations.
Originating from “Tarzan of the Apes,” a novel written by Edgar Rice Burroughs in 1912, the character has attained a cult status in modern culture.
…he is also a gambling hero. The new game in the Tarzan series will have captivating animations and unique sounds and will feature the character prominently.
Jean-Luc Ferriere, Chief Commercial Officer at the supplier said
“We are excited to extend our brand partnership with Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc. to create the next iteration of Tarzan, a timeless character and brand with worldwide appeal. The upcoming game from Fortune Factory Studios will be one of several new branded slots to launch on our platform this year as we continue to diversify, extend and refresh our content offering.”
James Sullos, President of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc.
“Our extended deal will see the creation and launch of a new Tarzan game, which we are confident will build on the character’s successful first outing with the renowned supplier. We look forward to working with the game developer and are excited to see the game come to fruition.”
