Earlier this year, NetEnt has announced an exclusive branded slot release and this time in cooperation with 21 Century Fox. Precisely, they have signed an agreement for a full franchise on an entire Planet of the Apes movie series. The brand new slot will be live in October this year, just after the latest movie blockbuster in this series named “War for the Planet of the Apes (2017)”. No doubt that the newest NetEnt release will create a lot of buzz, especially amongst the slot movie fans.
It’s not the first time that NetEnt is taking the road towards branded movie slots. Not surprisingly, though! Branded slots are hugely popular in the gambling world and we have seen some cracking movie slots releases in the past from different game providers. Apart from the newest Planet of the Apes Slot, NetEnt has released popular titles such as Creature from the Black Lagoon, Dracula, Frankenstein, and Scarface. Microgaming doesn’t fall behind with highly popular Tomb Raider, Hitman, Jurassic Park and Game of Thrones. Iron Man & Incredible Hulk are still on the list of highly popular Playtech slots. Investment in creating slot machine and signing a deal with Movie Company is huge but certainly pays off in the long run.
We don’t have much information related to the Planet of the Apes slot machine configuration. We do know that NetEnt will have exclusive rights to include movie sequences, sounds and graphics into this slot which most of the times results in stunning slot design. Furthermore, we believe that the new title will be based on the first movie in this series - Planet of the Apes (1968). This is not confirmed yet by NetEnt. Slot configuration is also unknown at the moment, but our best guess would be either 5-reels & 25 paylines or a full 243-way machine. One thing is sure, though. CEO of NetEnt Mr. Per Eriksson commented that the new game will be fully mobile optimized and accessible via different mobile devices. Of course, desktop version would still be available to PC users.
Stay tuned as LuckyStar Casino will offer the new slot game to its players on the release day 23rd October 2017. In the meanwhile, you can play more than 800 casino games from the industry leading software providers at LuckyStar.
