Judge Dredd slot games to debut summer 2014.
A huge announcement this week featured some very exciting gaming news. NextGen Gaming the Sydney, Australia-based slots studio subsidiary of NYX Gaming Group has been granted an exclusive licensing deal allowing for the creation of new slot games featuring Judge Dredd.
From Crime Fighter to Slot Game Icon
Since 1977 the Judge Dredd character has been a staple of the 2000 AD comic books. He has also branched out in several other media; graphic novels, video games, role-playing games and movies. Summer 2014 will herald the arrival of one of the world's most famous â€˜law-makers' to the online gaming universe. Developed by NextGen Gaming and initially available exclusively via the NYX OGS platform, Judge Dredd will be making an unexpected but very welcome debut.
Senior figures at NYX Gaming Group are extremely pleased with these recent developments and bullish about the potential of marrying such a well-known figure with slot games. Brand recognition is a huge impetus in such a competitive market and it's possible that NYX has pulled a rabbit out of the hat. Scott Smith, SVP Product at NYX Gaming Group said "We're proud to be working with one of the greatest comic characters of all time in bringing a multi-featured, richly branded gaming experience online (with Judge Dredd)".
A Different Kind of Summer Blockbuster
At the movie theaters we are used to the now tried and tested formula of summer blockbusters - big action, big explosions and big money. With the release of the Judge Dredd slot games it's just possible that NYX Gaming Group has really got one up on even the biggest movie studios.
