Fans of The Phantom of the Opera, a French novel written by Gaston Leroux, will soon be able to play a new jackpot casino slots title of the same name. The game is, in fact, based on the 2004 movie adaption, which is based on the 1986 musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber.
It will feature some iconic elements that the fans will love, such as the characters from the original film and the songs that go along with it. The new game will even feature some original footage from the film.
Microgaming Games Publisher David Reynolds commented that The Phantom of the Opera musical was played to 140 million people worldwide. He is excited to be working with a musical. The game is due to come out in Q3 this year, and it will be a celebration of the world's biggest opera. As far as the features go, the game will have free spins as well as additional goodies.
