The company today unveiled branded slot games based on Merian C.

“CryptoLogic has made its award-winning Internet casino platform its number one priority, and we continue to lead the way with the best branded and non-branded games on the market today,” said Brian Hadfield, CryptoLogic’s President and CEO. “CryptoLogic’s other branded games based on well-known characters have been both highly popular and highly profitable – and we have high hopes that King Kong and our other new games can scale similar heights.”
The new games are now available to players at Intercasino.com and WilliamHillCasino.com, and will be available on other licensee sites in the near future.
King Kong takes on New York City in a smashing new 25-line slot game based on the classic 1933 film directed by Merian C. Cooper.
