January 2012 saw the welcome announcement from Microgaming that they had bought the rights to the well known and sometimes fiery character of the Black Knight, also known as Batman. Many of the Marvel comic heroes are brought to life in the Playtech games which are open for US players but this is the first time that a brand as important and well known as the Dark Knight has been licensed by leading software produced Microgaming. This new license to Microgaming which unfortunately does not cover the US market was available immediately and Microgaming did not hesitate to announce their plans for this license. In the summer of 2012 which is fast approaching player at Microgaming casinos will be treated to a brand new Dark Knight Slots game. This game will be released in July with much fanfare and promises to offer wild symbols and scatters together with off screen bonus games that will involve the famous characters of the Dark Knight. Batman himself will appear in many forms together with his lifelong enemy the Joker and many other well known characters from Gotham City. The slot promises to be one of the best and most exciting slots that Microgaming has marketed in a long time and it is rumored to include clips from the latest movies too. In the spring of 2013 a sequel Dark Knight Slot game will be released once again by Microgaming. Players at the Microgaming casinos have a lot to look forward to. But US players should not despair too much as they can also meet their hero at the IGT games and some of the Playtech games that are offered.
