Net Entertainment, or NetEnt, is one of the leading casino software providers in the world. They are renowned for their amazing and entertaining video slots and other casino games. The company is also one of the most reputable in the industry. The Swedish software giant recently announced a deal with Sony Pictures Consumer Products. This deal will see the company launch a new and exciting video slot based on Jumanji.
The Original New Jumanji Online Slot
Jumanji is an American movie released in 1995, which saw a large profit at the box office when it was released. Contrary to popular belief, the original Jumanji movie is based not on a fictional board game. Instead, producers and directors based the movie on a 1981 children’s book by Chris Van Allsburg.
When it was released, Sony Pictures had the intention to make a sequel. They let go of that idea once the movie received its fair share of negative reviews and was subject to a mixed reception. A remake became a viable option after the surge of remakes in recent years.
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is a certified hit among movie audiences. It has been at the top of the box office charts for the past three weeks and has earned well over $700 million. Only in the past week Jumanji managed to rake in almost $20 million after being in cinemas for over a month. It has become the 7th biggest movie to gross this amount in its 5th week at the box office.
New Games for a New Age
Henrik Fagerlund, the Chief Product Officer at NetEnt, commented on this deal in company’s press release. He said it is a win for both companies in every way possible. He continued saying the company proved its determination when they managed to secure the deal for this high-profile movie. This shows their resolve to diversify their roster with new and appealing titles.
Fagerlund further said that the original Jumanji movie from 1995 is still a favorite among movie goers. The new movie showed why Jumanji was initially so successful with audiences and still is. He continued by saying the movie maintains an appeal that has been reaching across generation for the past two decades. He concluded the press release saying Jumanji is now more popular than ever. He claims the company is excited to launch the game in 2018. Along with other new releases, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle will be one of the most awaited video slots by Net Entertainment.
The new Jumanji online slot is in a great company. NetEnt is famous for a long list of brand name slots and other casino games. These include such notable titles like Guns N’ Roses, Planet of the Apes, and the Motorhead video slot.
