Stockholm-listed casino games developer NetEnt has officially released its new Planet of the Apes video slot game.

Announced at ICE earlier this year, NetEnt has incorporated content and characters from the recent films, Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, into the title.

Developed in association with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products, the Planet of the Apes game features both Rise and Dawn play areas, with 5-reels, 3-rows and 20-lines which allow players to experience both films within the game while immersing themselves in the ape world.

Throughout the game, players can earn Rise and Dawn Free Spins, Scatter symbols, Wild substitutions and a Stacked Wild feature. With its Dual feature, the game combines elements from the two movies with the excitement of slot game play to deliver a truly unique Planet of the Apes experience.

"Planet of the Apes is one of the most popular film franchises ever created and we are confident players around the globe will find our latest title just as immersive and exciting as the films," said NetEnt's chief product officer Simon Hammon. "The value for an operator with this 50-year series of films is the loyal audience that spans over generations - meaning it has the potential to attract a broad range of players."

Hammon said that the quality of this latest edition added a new dimension to casino gaming and further strengthens the supplier's portfolio.

"The game studio has worked on the title for months and the industry's top experts have been involved in its creation," he continued. "We can't wait to deliver the ultimate entertainment experience as players discover Planet of the Apes."

Shares in NetEnt AB (Co. Data) (STO:NET-B) were trading down marginally by 0.89 per cent at SEK61.25 per share in Stockholm earlier Monday.
