Although Disney continues to take over the world, Cryptologic's online casino
software subsidiary, WagerLogic, says there is nothing to worry. Me personally,
I don't know what's more surprising - the fact that Disney does indeed have
aspirations to take over the world, or that Cryptologic isn't worried about
losing their agreement with Marvel Entertainment.
You know, the agreement that allows them to offer Marvel
superhero themed online casino slot machines? And that could be tricky,
Disney has recently bought out, or should I say, taken over Marvel Entertainment to the
tune of $4 billion.
Surprising? Maybe not. Think about it.
Although Disney comes across as this family-oriented company, the truth of the
matter is that Disney has gotten itself mixed up in some real evil s*&t (Excuse
my French, but if you're not 18, you shouldn't be at this website anyways). For
example, "The Real Life With Cody....and blah, blah, blah...I forget the rest".
And how about "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" reality T.V. shows...I mean
"reality" T.V. shows. C'mon. That's as evil and exploitative as you can
My point is that maybe I shouldn't be surprised that Cryptologic isn't
worried Disney will turn the Marvel Comics brand into a less edgier, more
"family" themed entertainment. If anything, they will probably become more
violent, nihilistic and deranged. Now that's entertainment!
Cryptologic says they are very confident the Marvel Superhero slots will
have their mainstay under Cryptologic until the end of the current licensing
agreement, which is 2013. Basically, they are under contract, so there's
probably a good chance Cryptologic has some legal rights in the matter. After
2013 will be anybody's guess whether Cryptologic can continue to keep offering
what has become one of the most successful online casino slots series ever. I
mean, have you good The Incredible Hulk looks on a slot machine. More green than
ever I dare say! And Spidey? Oh how his webs do shine and make those reels so
My guess is that Disney will allow Cryptologic to
resign their licensing agreement. One: These games are
way too popular and make too much money to pass up -
money that could be used to film the sequel to "Swiss
Family Robinson". Two: Disney can lay low and most
people won't ever know they even own Marvel
Entertainment. Just like they won't even know when
Disney has officially taken over the world.
