Playtech Announces More Superhero Online Pokies
February 15, 2016
There are several Australian online casinos powered by Playtech. Prominent among them are Omni Casino, Mansion Casino, Slots Heaven and Club 777. The software provider has announced a new range of superhero online pokies that will complement its already very popular Marvel series. Playtech has signed a multi-year licensing deal with Warner Bros, the distributor of movies featuring DC Comics superheroes by DC Entertainment. The branded online pokies will start rolling out this year and will be released on all Playtech channels simultaneously, including desktop and mobile devices.
The initial plan is to develop four online pokies. Three of the titles feature Superman based on movies released between 1978 and 2013. These are Superman I, Superman II and Man of Steel. The fourth branded slot will be based on the superhero Green Lantern from a movie released in 2011. Playtech announced that work has already begun and is being executed by its content studios all across the globe. Playtech CEO Mor Weizer released a statement on this occasion. He said, “Playtech's best performing in-house and premium branded casino slot content will be further strengthened through our partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and the launch of the DC Comics branded games.” He added that Playtech looked forward to a long and prosperous relationship with Warner Bros Consumer Products. One of the biggest annual gaming expos ICE 2016 ran at London earlier this month. Playtech exhibited content from the movies based on which these new online pokies are being developed. The pride of place was given to the original costumes from the blockbuster film Man of Steel. Some of the content will be used by Playtech in the branded pokies.
Both Playtech operators and their players will benefit from the release of this new DC Comics superhero series. The exact timing of the release of the first online pokie has not been announced. Also the structure of the online pokies is not known. These details will filter through as the release date comes closer. Marvel, the other superhero partner of Playtech, is also releasing a number of movies this year. No plans have been announced to develop branded online pokies to go with these films, but players are hoping that Playtech will continue to add to the Marvel collection. Meanwhile there are other casino games because Playtech offers one of the most extensive portfolios of online casino content, which boasts of more than 600 games across all channels, platforms and devices.
