Playtech, the leading developer of online casino games, has been forced to withdraw its popular Marvel-branded slot machines including Avengers, Fantastic Four or Incredible Hulk. The last day when players could enjoy their favourite marvel super-heroes in the online casino environment was 31st March 2017.
This disappointing news came after the owner of the Marvel brand, the Walt Disney Company, has made the decision not to renew Playtech’s license that permitted them to develop slots Marvel-themed online games. The reason behind this decision is that the Walt Disney Company doesn’t want to be associated with gambling as it mainly focuses on family-oriented products and content.
However, Playtech is planning to rebrand the Marvel slots, more specifically the game engines, and they will become a part of the Age of Gods game group. According to some sources the Fantastic Four will be turned into Age of Gods: Furious Four while Iron Man 2 should be called Age of Gods: King of Olympus. Although we’re sad to see the popular superheroes leaving we look forward to meet them reborn under the Age of Gods brand.
