Microgaming’s December slot featuring iconic jungle hero Tarzan went live today with Microgaming and Quickfire operators.

From the original Edgar Rice Burroughs’ novel published back in 1912 to Hollywood’s countless iterations, Tarzan, has continued to captivate audiences both old and new, off-screen and on in different forms.

Now thanks to Microgaming Tarzan has entered the world of online slots too, as host of new release. The soundtrack was created in-house and all the environments and backgrounds were hand-drawn from scratch.

Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming, stated: “Tarzan is a visually bold and highly entertaining slot that celebrates the playful nature of this larger-than-life character. We’ve had a blast working with such an experienced licensor to bring this iconic brand to the online gaming world, and I think it shows. 2016 has been a busy year for us and there isn’t a better way to end it than with a classic branded title.”

Game features include three or more scatters which trigger the Bonus Wheel. Tarzan spins the wheel to award one of four guaranteed prizes: a jackpot, free spins, Pick-a-Potamus bonus or cash multipliers.

The Tarzan online slot has been developed through a licensing agreement with Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc., brokered by Creative Licensing Corporation.

James Sullos, President of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. commented: “Microgaming has certainly captured the timeless charm of Tarzan in their online slotWe’re pleased that the game remains faithful to this very special character, who continues to appeal to a diverse worldwide audience. We enjoyed working with Microgaming and we’re excited to see the game launch today into the online arena.”
