Jumanji video slot is coming from Netent and Sony Pictures Entertainment
Swedish online casino games developer NetEnt announces on its site that Jumanji is its latest branded game deal in collaboration with Sony Pictures Entertainment. The slot game developer will work with Sony Pictures Consumer Products to launch a new video slot game that will be based on the original 1995 American blockbuster movie Jumanji.
The new Jumanji game follows the December 20, 2017, launch of ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’ and is set to be released by the end of 2018. ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’ is based on the 1981 children’s book of the same name, written by Chris Van Allsburg, and serves as a stand-alone sequel to the original Jumanji.It is safe to say that the sequel is a big box office success with more than $700 million in revenue worldwide.
Henrik Fagerlund, Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, said: “Being able to secure a deal for another high-profile title showcases the moves we’re making in diversifying our roster of games.”
Jumanji is a great addition to NetEnt’s renowned branded games portfolio alongside the likes of Planet of the Apes™, Guns N’ Roses™ and Motörhead Video Slot™.
