“Highlander” was filmed in 1986 by the director Russell Mulcahy. The film is based on the story of Gregory Widen. The setting of the film is New York in the 1980s and historical Scotland. The protagonist of the film, the immortal Scottish warrior Connor MacLeod, played by Christopher Lambert, must confront the last immortal opponent to win the legendary “prize.” The appearance of the film became epoch-making and there are a lot of fans of the legendary Connor MacLeod to this day, which inspired the manufacturer to create a slot machine dedicated to the immortal mountaineer.

David Reynolds, a publisher at Microgaming says:

The Highlander is regarded as one of the great cult films of the 80s. Thanks to its futuristic storyline and impressive rock composition, this is a fantastic brand for creating an online slot. The game studio is busy producing a machine that will transfer all the magic of the film. Features of the game will include the historic Scottish Highlands and sandy New York, with the classic style and soundtrack of the film.”

New online slot Highlander with 243 ways to win will be presented to the general public on December 6th. The creation of the Highlander by Microgaming was made possible thanks to the agreement that Microgaming signed with Studiocanal.

Stephanie Kupperman from the licensing department says, “Many of the iconic characters of the classic Highlander are represented in the slot, including Christopher Lambert as Connor MacLeod, Roxanne Hart as Brenda Wyatt and Clancy Brown as the Kurgan. We believe that fans will really like to revise this epic story and see their favorite heroes and villains in the game format.”

This is not the first time when Microgaming turns to movies as a theme of their slot machines. Just remember their Bridesmaids, Terminator 2, Jurassic Park and Jurassic World. Although, you can also try a new movie-themed creation from Playtech – The Matrix.

This slot machine with 5 reels and 50 game lines is based on the cult movie of 1999 and the minimum bet here is 50p per spin on all devices. It produces a stunning impression and there is even a Déjà vu Shuffle function where you receive 2 wild reels on reels 1 and 5 with other symbols reshuffling to give you a victory. Also, there are two free spins features – the Agent Smith Free Games function and the Nabuchadnezzar Free Games function.
