Tarzan swings into the world of online slot games with Microgaming

Microgaming has secured the exclusive rights to the Tarzan name for online slot games in a deal licensing with Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc.

The licensing agreement, brokered by Creative Licensing Corporation, will see the Tarzan online slot launch to operators later in the year on desktop and mobile. Tarzan will host the game, with Jane, Archimedes and a number of his jungle friends featured on the reels. The game will also contain several distinctive sounds, including Tarzan’s famous yell.

“Tarzan is recognised the world over, so we’re excited to be launching a slot hosted by this timeless character," said Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming.

"Our highly talented games team relish working with a new brand, to build a game that celebrates and embraces it. Having seen the game in prototype, I can honestly say the online slot will not disappoint Tarzan fans; operators and their players can look forward to the game’s release this winter.”

James Sullos, President of Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc added: “We could not be more pleased to license Tarzan and his friends to such a quality company as Microgaming. 

"Their extensive experience in developing online slot games assures us they will build a game that will attract many fans and players to the game from around the globe.”
