Microgaming to Develop ‘Terminator 2’ Online

Microgaming has acquired the rights develop an online slot game based on the 1991film Terminator 2 starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Online game content supplier Microgaming announced that it will develop an online slot game based on the 1991 film Terminator 2 starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. The developer acquired rights to develop the theme from Studiocanal, which owns the movie rights.

Microgaming will debut the slot game later this year at designated Microgaming online casinos. The game will feature bonus symbols that resemble the characters from Terminator 2, including the title character and the main villain, the T-1000 android.

Terminator 2 was released in 1991, the second movie to feature Arnold Schwarzenegger in the title Terminator role. Unlike the first movie, which saw the Terminator as the principal villain, the character became one of the heroes of the second movie.

Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming, says the entire company is “incredibly excited” to launch the Terminator 2 online slots game. Raatgever compared the hype surrounding the new game to the excitement leading up to the Dark Knight slots series, and expects similar rave reviews. “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,” he said.
