NetEnt, the leading digital games provider, has announced that it will be rolling out a new game based on a top movie brand later this year. The game will be based on the 1995 movie, Jumanji which captured the imagination of moviegoers everywhere. The American fantasy movie, which was adapted by the children’s book of the same name by Chris van Allsburg, went on to spur a booming brand. In late December last year, a new movie, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, was released and this brand is now hotter than ever. It comes as no surprise then that NetEnt has chosen this year to release a new game based on the brand. Last week, NetEnt announced that it had signed a deal with Sony Pictures Consumer Products that a game would be created based on the original 1995 movie. The film’s storyline tells of two children who discover a magical board game which releases a man who has been trapped in the game for decades. In order to end the problems that come with releasing the man from the game, they have to finish it. The new video slot will feature characters from the original movie, and will also boast some fantastic bonus features and the chance to win big. Another Branded Slot for NetEnt NetEnt started 2018 off with a bang with the announcement that it will be adding Jumanji slot to its arsenal of super branded slot games. The group already boasts winning titles such as Planet of the Apes, Motorhead slot and Guns ‘n Roses slot, to name just a very few. Henrik Fagerlund, the chief product officer of NetEnt said about the new deal signed with Sony: “Being able to secure a deal for another high profile title showcases the moves we’re making in diversifying our roster of games.” “The original Jumanji movie, which debuted in 1995, remains a moviegoer favorite and continues to demonstrate its cross-generational appeal more than 20 years later!” he added. “Also, with the recent release of the new film, the Jumanji brand is more popular than ever.” “We’re excited for the game launch in 2018!” See Jumanji Slot at ICE Show NetEnt will be providing a teaser of Jumanji slot at this year’s ICE Gaming Expo in London next month. The industry will be able to view some of the game’s exciting graphics and features on February 6th, ahead of the game’s release later on this year. The newest Jumanji movie has already grossed over $676 million in global box offices, and the popularity of the brand will definitely help the upcoming slot game become a firm favorite at online casinos that carry NetEnt titles.
