Microgaming to Drop Batman Slots

In an affiliate email this week it was revealed that gaming software developer Microgaming will be dropping its two Batman themed slots "The Dark Knight" and "The Dark Knight Rises", effective June 27th.

The announcement was not made by Microgaming, but rather through an affiliate email sent by Vegas Palms Casino, and read:

"THE DARK KNIGHT™ has decided to pack his bags and renounce his old life. Sources tell us that he's trading in his superhero lifestyle for a quieter, more serene one, where there are no bad guys to defeat and no damsels in distress to save. For the indefinite future, he has vowed to live in the countryside with the birds.

Alas, there is nothing we can do but make the most of the next few weeks with him:


These slots will be discontinued from 27 June, 2016."

Although no reason was given for the pulling of the games, it is likely that Microgaming was unable to come to terms to continue licensing the game. We currently don't know what the company will replace the slots with, but it is very likely that we will see another blockbuster film franchise rise up, and become the online slot we all deserve.

Hopefully the replacement will be a match for it because I think it's a shame that these slots had been dropped, in fact I think we don't have to worry about Microgaming future plans because they are just one of the leading companies out there.

No doubt they will just replace the game with another that is exactly the same just with different graphics, like they did when they lost the Lord of the Rings license.

I don't really care about these games, never was a big fan so it's no loss for me anyway. Is it a little odd? Yes, cause they seemed to be quite popular games.
