Big Expectations for Marvel Movies and Slots for 2016Published January 4, 2016 by Mike P
Another fantastic year of Marvel movies has OCR thinking about which 2016 releases would make for great video slots.
Marvel enjoyed another blockbuster year in 2015 on the back of successful movies like the Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man. Fortunately, there are many more Marvel movies to see in 2016. Naturally, though, this begs the question of which movies could be designed as great video slots in 2016? Well, let’s take a look to see which Marvel slots might be on the horizon for 2016.
Captain America: Civil War
Captain America: the First Avenger has already been transformed into a video slot. Designed with use of official imagery, the Captain America slot from Playtech is faithful to the original. An added bonus is that the slot features the Marvel progressive jackpot, which is connected to all other Marvel slots designed by Playtech.
A recently released trailer suggests that Civil War will have more than enough action to warrant a slot release. However, this might not happen because the Winter Solider, the second movie in the series, is yet to become a slot. Logically, the Winter Soldier would have to come first in 2016.
X-Men: Apocalypse features a cast that is loaded with talented faces, including the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, and Oscar Isaac. The presence of these stars alone would make Apocalypse a tremendous slot release.
Thus far, X-Men slots have only been designed with a cartoon style. And considering that the series is a little disjointed in terms of continuity, there is no reason why Apocalypse could not be the next big release.
Those who have not heard of Deadpool are in for a treat. This foulmouthed yet playful superhero is the funniest character in the Marvel universe and will be played by Ryan Reynolds in the upcoming movie. Considering the hilarity and action that can be expected from Deadpool’s solo debut in February, there is more than enough source material to justify a video slot version appearance for this unlikely hero in 2016.
Gambit and Channing Tatum could have been a decent prospect, but this movie is not being made by Marvel Studios and has changed director multiple times. For these reasons, Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange remains the stronger outside prospect. A Doctor Strange slot would bring a fascinating sense of mystery for players, who could also hope for a Marvel progressive jackpot considering that the game is being made by Marvel studios.
Where to Play Marvel Slots
Marvel slots are most commonly designed by software developer Playtech, who can be credited with the likes of the Avengers, Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, the Incredible Hulk, Spider-Man, and various others. While waiting for any new Marvel slots to emerge, the existing titles can be found at the likes of bet365 Casino, 7Regal Casino, and Omni Casino now.
