Microgaming announced Village People branded online slot will be coming in 2019
Last week, Microgaming announced they have signed a licensing deal with ITV Studios Global Entertainment to develop another exclusive branded slot, this time based on the one of the most iconic disco groups of all times, Village People.
Village People Slot Game
The game is expected to be developed and launched in summer 2019.
The slot will feature the most famous songs by Village People, including their dancefloor smash hits like Y.M.C.A, Go West, In the Navy and Macho MAN.
The group’s name refers to New York’s Greenwich Village, at the time known for its large gay population.
The characters were a symbolic group of gay and macho fantasy personas. They became hugely popular very quickly and then moved into mainstream.
Iconic members of the band, Biker, Cowboy and the Construction Worker will lead you through the new slot game back to the 70s disco scene. You will enjoy familiar music and disco moves while you collect some whopping prizes on the way.
ITVS GE spokesperson Steve Green said in a press statement: “A brand as iconic as Village People is sure to lend a great deal of fun and nostalgia to the themed online slot game, and who better to bring that to life than the company that developed the first true online casino.”
Branded Slot Games List Expands
This is not the first branded slot under Microgaming’s name. Village People will join Playboy, Jurassic World, Terminator 2 and Game of Thrones, all highly successful titles.
Andrew Clucas, Microgaming COO, commented the upcoming title.
“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.”
With Village People many will go down the memory lane with the famous music that will flashback the moments from their youth.
This nostalgic music was huge at the time and even triggered a disco revolution worldwide and launched many similar bands including Kings of Disco.
