Microgaming, one of the undisputable leaders in the industry of game providers for casinos has just sealed a deal with The Really Useful Group. The purpose behind this is to produce a video slot adaptation of the most world-renowned musical — The Phantom of the Opera.
The Phantom of the Opera’s Video Slot
While it’s still early to form a clear picture of how The Phantom of the Opera’s video slot is going to pan out, the information we have available so far is that it will feature scenes from some of the best musical numbers. There will also be scenes and actors including Gerard Butler and Emmy Rossum. David Reynolds, games publisher at Microgaming, stated that it’s an honour and pleasure to be working on a video slot that embodies the successful characteristics of The Phantom of the Opera, which has been shown to roughly 140 million worldwide. Such entries in the genre of branded content will prove to be a great asset in their game portfolio. The game, which is out some time in the 3rd quarter of 2017, will be given all the care necessary to strike a good balance between basic game features on one hand and special features including attractive free spins rounds.
The Opera’s Short but Prolific History
Based on the French novel penned by Gaston Leroux, The Phantom of the Opera was first staged as a musical in 1986. Since then, it has been reimagined by many theatrical production groups.
The musical tells us the story of a mysterious man who wears a mask and who lives under the Paris Opera House. He falls in love with a talented singer and kidnaps her and a tortuous and stormy romantic affair ensues.
The story is one that expresses a strong dose of passion, longing, and love in the face of adversity. This is why we are hopeful that a big game producer like Microgaming will succeed in bringing out these profound qualities the musical expresses that have made it a timeless piece.
We look forward to Microgaming announcing their launch date for their adaption of The Phantom of the Opera.
