We all remember the original Battlestar Galactica series back in the 70s which unfortunately lasted only one year. Of course, the series came back to life few years ago and went to win a number of awards but most important they became very successful among sci-fi fans! This made Microgaming knock Universal’s door and ask for the rights to develop a pokie game based on the famous series. This new pokie will join the group of games based on famous films and TV shows, including ‘The lord of the Rings’, ‘The Dark Knight’ and ‘Iron Man’. The game is due to come out at one point this year but we suspect it will be ready for Christmas in order to make a buzz for Microgaming. So if you want to play this game then all you have to do is go to a Microgaming casino around Christmas and play it. Regarding the game itself we don’t know much yet but we don’t think that it would be a progressive one at least at the beginning. We definitely though expect the Battlestar Galactica Pokie to have the latest technology like cinematic spins or hopefully something that we haven’t seen before. With this move, Microgaming establishes themselves once again a the casino software leaders in the market and we think that Playtech has to change a lot of things in order to compete with them. We will keep you updated over the next few months and we will definitely review this slot game when it comes out so keep checking our blog for more on this story!
