Microgaming Licenses Batman The Dark Knight Slots Series

Batman The Dark Knight

While Cryptologic and Playtech powered online casinos are generally better known for online slots based on numerous comic book characters, Microgaming casinos like Platinum Play look set to give them a good run for their money with its recent announcement of yet another licensing agreement that will see the company producing brand new online slots games based on the legendary DC comic book hero Batman and The Dark Knight series.

This is truly an exciting development for fans of comic book themed online slots and Microgaming promises not to disappoint when the first game is released in the Summer of 2012, with The Dark Knight Rises Online Slot making its debut in early 2013. It can be expected that these state of the art slots will feature all of the characters from the movies and comic books as well as animations and clips from the motion pictures The Dark Knight and the upcoming sequel The Dark Knight Rises.

Upon release in 2008, The Dark Knight movie became the third highest grossing film of all time in the United States, with earnings in excess of $500 million in domestic box office revenues and over $1 billion worldwide. While some critics attribute the success of the movie to the untimely passing of Heath Ledger (who played the part of The Joker), none can dispute that it was a cinematic masterpiece and that Heath's final completed project saw him rise as not only a super villain but also as one of the most talented actors of his generation. It makes sense then that the online slot version of the movie will enjoy a great deal of success even 4 years down the line.

The upcoming sequel, The Dark Knight Rises will be launched in cinemas on the 20th of July 2012 and will once again star Christian Bale as Batman / Bruce Wayne. We can't wait to see it or the subsequent slot machine.

While you wait for these exciting new releases, why not play Hellboy or any of the other superhero slot titles at Microgaming powered casinos now.
