Austrian gaming giant Novomatic has entered a multi-year licensing agreement with Miramax for the rights to develop online and land-based casino games based on cult classic film From Dusk Till Dawn.

Set to be unveiled at next month's G2E Las Vegas event, the From Dusk Till Dawn slot game features George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino as the Gecko brothers, Salma Hayek as Santanico Pandemonium, as well as Harvey Keitel, Juliette Lewis and Danny Trejo in footage from the film.

In addition to various features and mini bonuses during the base game, three bonus symbols trigger the 'Bonus Twister' wheel that players spin to win credits or enter a bonus.

Players watch a dancer as she moves around the reels in the Dancing Bonus, acting as a Dancing Wild symbol that can fill up to three reels and rack up big wins by doing so. In the Mugshot Bonus, reels spin to uncover Clooney and Tarantino mugshots that match various credits.

Directed by Robert Rodriguez and written by Quentin Tarantino, From Dusk Till Dawn celebrated its 20th anniversary last year, with Rodriguez recently developing From Dusk Till Dawn into a TV series which recently concluded its third season.

"From Dusk Till Dawn is a cult film that has regained attention due to its 20-year anniversary," said Novomatic's chief technology officer Thomas Graf. "We are very pleased to be partnering with Miramax on this great brand and are excited to combine our world-class gaming technology with this distinguished film and bring it to casino players around the world."
