If you are not crazy about Tarzan, the brief write-up in the Royal Vegas blog will tell you how big a brand Tarzan is. The legendary hero was created by Edgar Rice Burroughs in his novel Tarzan of the Apes published in 1912 and lorded over the jungle in 25 sequels. He is the most filmed figure in motion picture history, having been portrayed by a total of 29 actors. There is no medium of storytelling left untouched by Tarzan. He has penetrated television series, comic strips and even the Broadway stage.

He said that Microgaming was a quality company with extensive experience in developing online branded pokies. He is confident that Microgaming will build a game that will attract many fans and players from around the globe.

Microgaming has indicated that the Tarzan branded video pokie will be released sometime in 2016. The mobile gamers at Royal Vegas will be thrilled to know that it will be released simultaneously on desktop and mobile platforms. Two important human characters will join Tarzan on the reels. One is his wife Jane and the other is his father-in-law Archimedes. His animal friends will be there as well. The game will offer many thrilling features and sounds, including Tarzan’s famous yell.

Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming, said, “Tarzan is recognised the world over, so we're excited to be launching a slot hosted by this timeless character.” He added that he has seen the game in prototype and is sure that the online pokie will not disappoint Tarzan fans, Microgaming licensees and players. Another Microgaming branded online pokie is work-in-process. This is based on Jurassic World, the fourth film in the Jurassic series.
