Microgaming’s latest branded slot, ‘Highlander’, launched today (Wednesday).
This much anticipated 5×3 reel, 243-ways-to-win slot is based on the original 1986 movie which became a cult classic starring Christopher Lambert as Connor MacLeod.
The game accurately depicts scenes from the movie including iconic locations set in the Scottish Highlands.
Features include a free spins mode and two powerful wild features which trigger the stoke of a sword turning the prerequisite two landed scatters wild.
Three scatters landing on the reels awards 10 free spins, during which the storm intensifies with Quickening Wilds™. On each spin, a flash of lightning can randomly strike, electrifying the reels and turning symbols wild. With each strike, an increasing number of wilds will land.
“Highlander™ is an iconic brand, and the game studio have worked tirelessly to create an online slot that pays homage to the 80s movie and its cult classic status,” David Reynolds, Games Publisher at Microgaming said. “An epic soundtrack composed by our game studio is a great tribute to the brand.”
“The game came together exceptionally well. We are immensely pleased with the results and believe fans will love the art, which is a beautiful reflection of the classic film,” added Rand Marlis, CEO of Creative Licensing
