- Speculation on new Planet of the Apes video slot ahead of expected launch
- Hopes for feature-rich gameplay and impressive graphics
- LeoVegas speculates it will not have a progressive jackpot
Excitement is growing following NetEnt’s deal with 20th Century Fox to license the Planet of the Apes film franchise for online slot games.
The agreement between NetEnt and 20th Century Fox Consumer Products will see a slot based on the franchise – which spans several decades of films, TV and other media – released later this year.
“Planet of the Apes is one of the largest film franchises in the world never to have been applied to gaming before”, claimed Simon Hammon, Chief Production Officer at NetEnt.
“With such a rich history, the brand resonates with everyone that has grown up with the films, and it will fit
perfectly with NetEnt’s wide and diverse player base. We are thrilled to have signed the franchise, and can’t wait to offer the game to players later in the year.”

NetEnt has not been any more specific about the release date, or given any information about what the slot will contain, but it seems likely to follow other major franchise tie-ins and large productions from the company. To make the most of the association, it’s likely to aim to deliver great graphics and be extremely feature rich. In an excitable blog post, LeoVegas speculated that it wouldn’t have a progressive jackpot but nothing has been confirmed. It is talking it up as possibly the biggest video slot of 2017.
As one of the biggest providers of slots and other casino games, you can find NetEnt’s products on a huge variety of different online casinos around the internet, including Paddy Power Casino, 888 Casino, Unibet Casino and LeoVegas Casino. A release date and full features list will be announced later on, but for players at any casinos offering NetEnt games, there will be huge anticipation over the big-ticket launch.
You can usually expect a lush and feature rich slot experience when choosing slots based on popular film franchises.
That’s because game developers like NetEnt have to dig deep to pay to get the license for these games in the first place. They don’t want to then put out a game that falls flat.
It will be interesting to hear more details on this slot and whether it will indeed feature a progressive jackpot element. We have contacted NetEnt to see if they are willing to tell us more at this early stage.
