Internet wagering software developer Microgaming has announced that it has officially launched a new video slot based on the critically acclaimed science fiction TV series Battlestar Galactica.

The game is a 243 way to win, 5 reel video slot that features the great effects and cast of the series. The game itself features an achievement ranking system, wherein players unlock more video content as they progress through the game. Battlestar Galactica also features a "Run" and "Fight" mode, which players can trigger at any time.

Commenting on the release, Microgaming CEO Roger Raatgever said: “Our portfolio of branded games has been strengthened considerably by the addition of Battlestar Galactica, an iconic sci-fi brand that provides an ideal theme for us to create an absorbing online slot game. With superior graphics and a host of innovative features, we are confident that we have created a great gaming experience reflective of the iconic nature of the brand.”

Debuting in 1978, Battlestar Galactica plays out in outer space, as the last remaining humans try to find a new home while fighting their arch nemesis, the Cylon. In 2003 the series was remade and proved to be popular both domestically and abroad. The series finale in 2009 drew more than 14 million viewers across the world.
