Microgaming is set to release a branded slot based on the classic 80’s film Highlander directed by Russel Mulcahy and is due out December 6th. The Highlander slot features Connor MacLeod and his otherworldly characters from the film as they offer up big wins via scatters that can act as wilds during the base game, a Déjà vu Shuffle feature and a free spins feature with quickening wilds.
Gameplay and Graphics in the Highlander Slot
The Highlander slot is a 5 reel and 243 ways to win slot. The story sees an age-old battle between immortal warriors as they travel the lands to seek destiny. Spinning in on the reels are characters from the cult film including Connor McLeod (past and present), Kurgan, Heather McLeod and Brenda J. Wyatt. Lower value symbols are made up of 10 through ace playing cards.
The Highlander logo is the wild symbol substituting for all other symbols apart from the Highlander watcher scatter symbol.
The stroke of a sword turns two scatter symbols into wilds during the base game for big wins.
Three or more highlander watcher scatter symbols triggers the free spins bonus offering 10 free games. The storm intensifies during free spins with quickening wild symbols. Lightning can strike to turn symbol positions wild, while every time a Quickening Wild strikes, an increasing number of Wilds will be placed.
Microgaming has licensed the Highlander slot in collaboration with Studiocanal. Commenting on the exciting new slot based on the 80’s cult film is Microgaming’s games publisher, David Reynolds, stating “Highlander is seen as one of the great cult hits of the 80s. With its action-packed storyline and hefty rock inspired composition, it is a fantastic brand for an online slot. The game studio is busy completing the slot that captures all of the movie magic. The game’s features will incorporate the historical Scottish Highlands and gritty New York City, with a classic movie poster art style and blistering guitar tracks.”
