BridesmaidsHistorically the video slots produced by Microgaming for the female demographic have erred on the side of the sickly sweet mix of roses, diamond rings and dashing broad shouldered heroes.

The announcement of a Bridesmaid video slot, based on the 2011 Universal Pictures comedy blockbuster by the same name, was a breath of fresh air.

Bridesmaids was a revolutionary film for its time. Haled as the Hangover for women, it tore away the façade of women being sweet, giggly creatures who swanned around waiting for a hero to show up and save them.

Rather you’re faced with the raw reality of women being women. The film is filled to the brim with our bridal party drinking hard, partying hard, having sex and in some scenes being down-right foul. All the while leaving you wishing you were part of the madness.

Microgaming CEO, Roger Raatgever said that Bridesmaids “is a comedy classic! The storyline, characters and genuinely hilarious stand-out scenes combine to make it one of the most successful comedy films of all time.”

This leaves us with hope that we will get to hear the lines “you’re the maid of dishonour” and “I’m ready to paaaaaarty!” at some point in the game.

While not much is known about the slot itself, which is broadly scheduled for a summer 2015 release, it will be interesting to see if Microgaming keeps to the wild spirit of the film during the feature rounds.

Triggering members of the bridal party during gameplay you will unlock video sequences from the film. Would they dare to use the hilarious, yet nauseating, food poisoning scene in the bridal boutique?

What we do know is that the slot will be a 5 Reel, multiple pay-line game, stacked with the multi-level bonus games we’ve seen in so many of their recent releases.

It will also be released simultaneously on desktop and mobile which is great news for everyone interested in playing Bridesmaids on the go.
