Microgaming's 'Highlander' Slot is Live

This story was published more than 2 years ago.

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!"

A video preview of Highlander can be seen below:

Well at least they got all the main characters in this one, unlike a few other licensed games recently *cough* Game of Thrones *cough* Top Gun *cough*

Highlander was a very interesting movie, as I remember.
The title song was " Who wants to live forever" by Queen... right ? 🙂

This game appears to be good with one Scatter and Wild symbol.
Maybe, free spins feature is not very hard to get.
But, as seen in the video clip, line wins are very small.

I will try this game later.

I've never watched the movie so I had no idea about the inspiration for this game. Clearly 80s theme is big for online slots as well as tv series. It looks quite interesting if you ask me- not sure about the winning potential but will try.

I think they need a "Big Trouble in Little China" slot. I'd love to see that retro goodness!

It is strange to see game of thrones, there is only a symbol and an iron throne,unfortunately can not see pretty face Emily as Daenerys Targaryen,so boring of playing long time 🚬

After reading your comments I downloaded and played this song, I was nostalgia with my childhood 🎧

Fully agree Dustin that was a cool one, should be a great theme really.

Highlander was a cult movie too and that new release looking pretty promising I think, I'm keen to try it.
