Internet betting group Microgaming has announced the release of their newest video slot 'Highlander', which is based on the hit film of the same name.
Highlander is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win video slot that is set against rolling hills. The game features Christopher Lambert's Connor MacLeod as he faces off against The Kurgman for a fight looking for immortality. Features in the game include two wild features, scatters, free spins, and electric reels that randomly turn symbols wild. The game has a max payout of 102,500 credits, and comes as a result of a licensing deal between Microgaming and Creative Licensing. Highlander was announced earlier this year, and is one of the most highly anticipated games for the month of December.
Speaking about the game's release Microgaming's David Reynolds said, "Highlander™ is an iconic brand, and the game studio have worked tirelessly to create an online slot that pays homage to the 80s movie and its cult classic status. An epic soundtrack composed by our game studio is a great tribute to the brand. The features in the game perfectly represent the movie; the stroke of a sword which turns scatters wild in the base game is characterised by the legendary sword of the clan MacLeod, while Quickening Wilds™ in free spins is an escalating feature that builds the opportunity for players to win big!"
