Rights holders of just about every classic movie ever made are rubbing their hands with glee as virtually every major slots developer is picking up big brand after big brand in order to deliver great games with immediate appeal. Microgaming, with the likes of Jurassic Park and Terminator 2 and Net Entertainment with The Invisible Man and Creature from the Black Lagoon to their names are among the frontrunners as always, but NextGen Gaming has signalled that it has no intention of being left behind with the announcement of the official Psycho online slot. The game will join Judge Dredd among the developer’s licensed properties and certainly looks like something to get excited about whether you’re a fan of the movie or not!
The subject matter is of course Alfred Hitchcock’s movie from the 60s, where something distinctly psychotic goes down at the Bates Motel. The scene is set before the reels even load as the backdrop to the main board consists of the vacancy sign and the path that leads up to the hotel itself. With 25 lines in play it is typically accessible for a branded game and players will encounter plenty of familiar characters and playing card icons. The motel itself not only fills the background but also serves as the scatter symbol, while the iconic knife from a certain famous shower scene is noticeably more welcome on the board as it will act as the wild card.
The game’s release is set to be rather fragmented, with Psycho first launching on the NYX OGS platform. That means that the likes of Betsson and even offline Ladbrokes betting shops may see the game before anyone else, although plans are in place to launch the game across the full global NextGen network shortly thereafter, so every online casino that features NextGen games is sure to offer this one.
David Johnson, Commercial Director at NYX Gaming, NextGen’s parent company, commented: “We’re very excited to be launching the Psycho online slot, NextGen’s latest premium IP title and a true thriller slot. Psycho’s infamous scenes married with NextGen’s proven premium, repeat play slots expertise will make for a chilling winter blockbuster title. Psycho will initially be available to our NYX OGS partners and ultimately to the wider industry through our global network.”
