"Aah-eeh-ah-eeh-aaaaaah-eeh-ah-eeh-aaaaah!"
Tarzan® online slot is swinging into play

ISLE OF MAN – Microgaming’s December slot featuring the legendary jungle hero is live today with Microgaming and Quickfire operators.

From Edgar Rice Burroughs’ classic novel (published in 1912) to Hollywood’s countless iterations, Tarzan, a primitive force with a noble heart, has captured the imagination of audiences throughout its long existence.  

Microgaming’s Tarzan takes the player deep into the tropical jungle, where the lush canopy provides a visual treat in this breathtaking 40-line slot. A beautifully rendered backdrop of shimmering waterfalls and blue skies brings the spirit of Tarzan to a new medium. Players are enveloped in the world of Tarzan not only through authentic sights, but also through sound, as Tarzan’s famous yell can be heard throughout the game. Additionally, Tarzan’s jungle friends, including Jane and Archimedes, are featured on the brightly coloured reels. 

Tarzan hosts the game. He celebrates player victories with his trademark athletics and virtuoso vine swing. He marks big wins by performing somersaults, while any five-of-a-kind unleashes Tarzan’s unmistakable jungle yell as he beats his chest ferociously!

Tarzan

“Tarzan is a visually bold and highly entertaining slot that celebrates the playful nature of this larger-than-life character. We’ve had a blast working with such an experienced licensor to bring this iconic brand to the online gaming world, and I think it shows. 2016 has been a busy year for us and there isn’t a better way to end it than with a classic branded title.”

Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming

As well as being visually stunning, the game is also rich with features. Three or more scatters trigger the Bonus Wheel. Tarzan spins the wheel to award one of four guaranteed prizes: a jackpot, free spins, Pick-a-Potamus bonus or cash multipliers.

Free spins take wins to new heights with Rolling Reels™ that explode into action, allowing more symbols to drop onto the reels. Rolling Reels also combine with Growing Wilds™ to increase a player’s winning potential.

Tarzan online slot has been developed through a licensing agreement with Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc., brokered by Creative Licensing Corporation. 

“Microgaming has certainly captured the timeless charm of Tarzan in their online slot. We’re pleased that the game remains faithful to this very special character, who continues to appeal to a diverse worldwide audience. We enjoyed working with Microgaming and we’re excited to see the game launch today into the online arena.”

James Sullos, President of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc.

Tarzan’s wildly exotic adventure begins on desktop and mobile with Microgaming and Quickfire operators on December 1st 2016.
