A new wave of comic-themed online slot games are set to grace the Playtech platforms.
The world’s leading supplier of casino games, fresh on the back of the removal of all Marvel slots, has unveiled a new selection of DC Comics games.
Many questions surround the demise of the once-popular Marvel games, which included Avengers, Incredible Hulk and Captain America games. Commentators are favouring the suggestion, however, that it is Disney’s acquisition of Marvel that is truly steering the ship.
For many years, Disney has fought off many wealthy business owners attempts to build new physical casinos in Florida, anywhere near their world-famous family resorts.
Now, it appears, the same motivation is pulling Marvel out of long-standing (and surely profitable) agreements with Playtech.
At the end of last year, the firm unveiled its first round of six Batman games, in which the Dark Knight faced off against many of his enemies. Classically styled, and with a hint of Adam West about it, the games were popular with old comic fans and new.
Since then, Playtech has since unveiled Green Lantern, Superman I, Superman II and Man of Steel. Now it is promising even more exciting games, with even more huge brand names coming in 2017.
Mor Weizer, CEO, Playtech, said: “This is a hugely significant deal for Playtech and we’re delighted to have a wider-reaching exclusive DC film- and TV-branded content licensing agreement with Warner Bros. Consumer Products. We’ve had phenomenal feedback from our licensees based on the high-quality and calibre of the DC-branded games we rolled out in 2016.
“Today’s agreement takes this launch strategy to the next level by allowing Playtech to expand its robust offering with an array of new games branded to blockbuster DC film titles. In addition, these new titles will contribute to the growth of the prize level of the DC Super Heroes Jackpot.
This comes as Playtech announce their new slot, featuring animated favourite Stan Smith and his family from American Dad. A new 40-line, five-reel slot, players head to the fictional Langley Falls in hope of triggering Roger’s Random Wilds.
James Frendo, Casino Director at Playtech, said in a statement: “American Dad! is another top casino title and a fantastic addition to our leading portfolio of premium-branded games.
“Based on one of the world’s most popular animated sitcoms, this vibrant, feature-rich game stands out in the market and provides players with unique and high-quality entertainment.”
