It has been reported that NetEnt's much-awaited branded slot game, Planet of the Apes, will go live at partner casinos on October 23rd.
Planet of the Apes is one of the most popular movie brands in the world, and it seems logical that the excitement and mystery of this brand should eventually reach the reels of a slot game.
NetEnt stepped up to the challenge and in February this year, announced that it had signed a deal with 20th Century Fox to exclusively license the film franchise for online casino gaming.
This week, NetEnt released the first preview of Planet of the Apes slot, which can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OUKY9Zrv5z8
