Microgaming has signed a licensing deal with ITV Studios Global Entertainment to develop an exclusive online slot based on the iconic disco group, Village People.
Earmarked for a 2019 release, the game will feature the Village People’s most memorable hits, including dancefloor classics such as Y.M.C.A., Go West and Macho Man, which triggered a disco revolution worldwide and launched the band as the ‘Kings of Disco’.
Fans of the group can expect a nostalgic trip in online slot form that will feature all the iconic characters, including the Biker, Cowboy and Construction Worker, who will accompany players on a journey back to the 70s disco scene as they spin to win for big rewards.
ITVS GE spokesperson Steve Green comments: “A brand as iconic as Village People is sure to lend a great deal of fun and nostalgia to the themed online slot game, and who better to bring that to life than the company that developed the first true online casino.”
The new title will join Microgaming’s award-winning portfolio of branded content and will be made available on all platforms exclusively to Microgaming operators.
Andrew Clucas, Microgaming COO, adds: “Village People is an iconic brand that has created an impact on pop culture with songs that have remained popular with mainstream audiences since the 70s and 80s. Microgaming is proud to announce the development of a new game which will feature the band’s greatest hits and members for the first time in online slot form, adding a new dimension to our extensive portfolio of branded content.”
