The new slot may have a familiar name. After all, it is based on a mega-hit series.
Peaky Blinders is the brainchild of two giants in iGaming software. Pragmatic Play and Endemol Shine Gaming are the collaborators in its development. The launch date is expected to be this May.
An exclusive deal
The exclusive commercial deal will help the two companies create more industry offerings such as an online slot, a live casino, instant win scratch cards and virtual sports. Of course they will feature all characters from the popular BBC Peaky Blinders series.
Speaking for Pragmatic Play, Melissa Summerfield, Chief Commercial Officer expects global success and superior customer appeal.
“Peaky Blinders branded products will be yet another successful addition to our ever-expanding portfolio, and we trust that it will live up to the expectations.”
Director of games & gambling at Endemol Shine Group, Anil Mistry, offered his opinion.
“It’s great to work with Pragmatic Play to create brand new games… It’s one of our most iconic and promising brands, and we are excited by the potential of this partnership.”
Of note, the group holds rights to other high-profile and award-winning dramas such as Black Mirror, Simon’s Cat and Mr. Bean. Among their popular global formats are MasterChef, Hunted, Pointless, Tenable and Wipeout.
What is Peaky Blinders?
While the five-season series has won awards and is available on Netflix across the globe, now it has a different kind of reach.
The characters are played by actors Cillian Murphy, Helen McCrory and Paul Anderson, with frequent guests such as Tom Hardy, Adrien Brody. Now and then other reputable names come straight from Hollywood.
In its new incarnation, Peaky Blinders will be more engaging than ever. It shows that anything can become a slot!
