On January 20th 2014, Microgaming announced that it had obtained a licensing agreement with Studiocanal S.A to develop a brand new online slot machine based on the 1991 Hollywood blockbuster, Terminator 2: Judgment Day.

“We are incredibly excited to be developing an online slot around the Terminator 2 movie – it is a brand which has mass appeal and lends itself perfectly to the world of online gaming. As explosive as the film, we are in the process of creating an action-packed, jaw-dropping slot; it’s a classic in the making,” said the CEO of Microgaming, Roger Raatgever.

The scheduled release date for this ground-breaking new online is 'at some point' in the summer of 2014. Already being labelled simply as the T2 online slot, this brand new game will have 5 reels and 243 ways to win during regular play. The Free Spins Bonus Round will automatically trigger when three or more of the Time Travel Orb Scatter Symbols appear in view and this will increase the number of winning ways to 1024 ways (during the free spins bonus round only).

The following comments came from Rand Marlis, the current President of Creative Licensing Corporation which represents Studiocanal for Terminator 2 licensing; “Microgaming has vast experience in licensing brands and we have every confidence that the Terminator 2 online slot will be a massive success. Working with Microgaming is a real pleasure and we look forward to a long-lasting and successful relationship.”

This epic Hollywood movie is ranked at number 35 in the top 500 Greatest Movies of All Time (ranked by Empire) and it will feature all of your favourite characters such as the Terminator (aka T800) and the Evil Terminator (aka T1000). Microgaming will also be previewing the T2 online slot machine at ICE Totally Gaming 2014, an annual event which is scheduled to take place at London’s ExCel centre (between 4th and 6th February).

Microgaming also announced just a few weeks ago that it plans to unveil another ground-breaking new slot at ICE Totally Gaming 2014 called Avalon II: The Quest For The Grail (aka Avalon 2 slot / Avalon 2 online slot), which has been two years in the making. 2014 looks set to be a great year for Microgaming and the millions of fans of this award-winning software provider have plenty to look forward to.
