NetEnt, the online casino software behind casinos like Unibet and Betsson, announced yesterday that they entered a deal with Universal. NetEnt gained the rights to develop online slots based on Universal movies, including Frankenstein and Scarface. The first game — the Frankenstein slot — is expected to be released in June 2011.
This is the first time that Universal strikes a deal with an online casino software company, although it is not the first time that movie themed videoslots will be released in online casinos. Previously slots like Lord of the Rings and The Hulk themed slots were created by other software companies.
