New deal between ITV Studios Global Entertainment and Microgaming
It has been recently announced that leading online software firm Microgaming has agreed a licensing deal with ITV Studios Global Entertainment. The agreement will allow Microgaming to launch an online slot themed around Village People, the well-known pop group remembered for hits like YMCA and In the Navy.
The new slot is scheduled for 2019 launch and will include all of Village People's greatest hits such as YMCA and Macho Man. These numbers were a central part of the global disco revolution and helped the band to become world-famous.
The new release will star famous members of the Village People, including the Cowboy, the Biker, and the Construction Worker. These characters will appear on the reels as players enjoy a 1970s disco theme while spinning for big prizes.
Andrew Clucas, COO of Microgaming, said: “Village People is an iconic brand that has created an impact on pop culture with songs that have remained popular with mainstream audiences since the 70s and 80s. Microgaming is proud to announce the development of a new game which will feature the band’s greatest hits and members for the first time in online slot form, adding a new dimension to our extensive portfolio of branded content.”
Village People is just the latest addition to Microgaming’s slots portfolio, joining a number of other games including Rainbrew; this game was launched in partnership with Just For The Win in the middle of last month, with an Irish theme including a unique Sidewinder element.
