Many of the most recognizable brands in the world in way or another have found themselves developed into a game by Microgaming. Ranging from popular literature like The Lord of the Rings, to the famed caped vigilante that protects Gotham city, Batman; their quantity of themed games is enormous and ever expanding. Now Microgaming presents its latest challenge. After reaching an agreement with NBC, they attempt to develop a new online slot based on a popular series.

Battlestar Galactica is one of the most successful television series NBC has had. Its final season draw over 14 million viewers. The story basically follows a group of humans, which found themselves looking for a new planet to live. Enemies, political intrigue and love are found within the Battlestar Galactica universe, having something for every viewer. Entire generations of Star Wars and Star Trek fans have found solace in Battlestar Galactica, one of the few big budgeted science fiction shows on television.
The series has more than enough material to produce an incredible Battlestar Galactica online slot. Taking into account the iconic characters, space ships, desolated planets, the material will surely inspire tremendous graphics. Unite this with the ever innovative spirit of software developer masters Microgaming, and we surely are in for a treat. While there is no release date set, the Battlestar Galactica online slot will probably go live in the first half of 2013. The hype for the game is already tremendous, as it always is with new Microgaming announcements.
