If you remember we were very disappointed a few months ago to have to announce that Marvel Slots would be shortly coming to an end. Well, today is a very sad day because Marvel Slots are no longer.
The reason comes down to Disney’s purchase of Marvel back in 2009 in a buyout that was worth over CA$5 billion. When Disney took over the rights to create Marvel films, it also took over all of the licensing agreements that had been made with various different companies.
In November last year Disney decided that it no longer wished to continue its licensing agreements with any online Casino or gambling company, essentially rendering some of our favourite games obsolete.
Disney did allow us a few extra months playing our beloved Marvel Slots as it agreed to wait for the existing licensing agreements to expire. However, the expiry date has now come and gone and Disney is not renewing any of the agreements; Marvel Slots are no more.
The end of Marvel Slots is particularly disappointing for Playtech who was one of the main developers of Marvel Slots. Some of the most popular Playtech Slots were Marvel titles, including Spiderman, Iron Man, X Men and the Hulk Slots.
Although this sad news means that some of the most popular online Casinos will be void of the incredible Marvel Slots, online Casino fans need not worry, as there are many other exciting film-themed Slots that are equally as exciting.
One of the most thrilling of these is a Slot that’s based on the popular slasher film A Nightmare on Elm Street. You can play this Slot – and many other brilliant Slots from Playtech – at the incredible 888 Casino.
