Microgaming Ready to Launch the New Village People Slot in 2019

Publish: 18.10.2018

The leading developer of online gaming content Microgaming has announced the launch of a new game, following the signing of a licensing agreement with the British TV Studios Global Entertainment.

The new game will be based on the Village People, an American disco group best known for their on-stage costumes, suggestive lyrics, and catchy tunes.

A Journey to the 1970’s

According to available information, the Village People video slot is scheduled to go live in early 2019 and will feature a number of hits that made Village People popular all over the world, including Macho Man, Go West and, probably their biggest hit ever – YMCA. Known as the “Kings of Disco”, the group has remained popular to this day.

Punters can look forward to a visually stunning game, with a bit of retro, while the recognizable characters of the group, namely Construction Worker, Policeman, Military Man, Leatherman, Indian Chief, and Cowboy will help players on their quest to grab rewarding prizes.

Combine disco madness of the 70’s and 80’s with fantastic cash rewards, and you’ll have a truly unforgettable gaming experience.

Once the slot goes live, it will become the latest addition to Microgaming’s extensive portfolio of premium games. The developer announced the game would be available across all platforms, exclusively at Microgaming-powered online casinos.

An Important Move for Both Sides

Commenting on the upcoming release, Andrew Clucas, Chief Operating Officer at Microgaming, said the Village People was a remarkable brand that had a massive impact on the world’s pop culture thanks to a wide range of songs that remained in vogue ever since the 1970’s.

Clucas also stated that Microgaming was extremely proud to create and develop a new slot that would feature the members of the band and their biggest hits for the very first time. He pointed out that the new Village People slot would add more thrill and excitement to the company’s extensive library of branded slot titles and further cement its position as the world’s leading online gaming developer.

Steve Green, ITV Global Studios Entertainment spokesperson, said that an iconic brand such as the Village People would undoubtedly provide a great amount of fun and nostalgia to a themed online video slot. Green stated that there was no better software developer in the world to bring the video slot to life than the company that had managed to launch the first online casino and added he was extremely eager to see what Microgaming would create by early next year.

Once the game hits the market next year, players will be able to play it at any of Microgaming-powered online casinos. There you can find a wide offer of the developer’s slots, including the new Rainbrew slot, launched last month in collaboration with Just For The Win studio.
