popstar slot game

Gaming Innovation Group have teamed up with Swedish artist Erik Segerstedt to compose the audio for their newest online slot game ‘Popstar’. While the slot has not been released yet, GiG Games have hinted that the official release date will be very soon, sometime within the first quarter of 2019.

If like us, you’re not Swedish and have no idea who Erik Segerstedt is, this guy placed 2nd in the hit Swedish reality TV casting show ‘Idol’  and went on to form a  group with some of the other contestants called ‘EMD’. The group proved to be a massive success with a string of hits under their belt but soon enough, Segerstedt decided to go solo and has been extremely successful in that respect so far. He also regularly appears as a guest artist on several radio and TV shows, as well as the Swedish televised dance contest ‘Let’s Dance’.

Needless to say, the music for this slot game will be nothing short of awesome-sauce!

What We Know So Far

GiG-Games-Soon-to-Launch-First-Ever-Slot-min-300x300While we do not have any concrete information regarding the game’s features, payouts and gameplay as yet, we do know that it is set to have a very catchy theme that’s sure to immerse players into the exciting atmosphere of televised singing competitions of the likes of ‘American Idol’ or ‘X Factor’.

Gaming Innovation Group’s in-house software development studio GiG Games have only been in operation since the fall of 2018 but they’ve already released 2 games so far. ‘Wild Reels’ was their very first slot which takes us back to the roots of online slot games while its successor, Book of Souls, expands on the ever-popular explorer-jungle theme.


“We are very excited about this agreement as it is the first time in our industry where a renowned artist has been involved from day one to compose audio for a game. Erik will create all audio for the game ‘Popstar’ which include computer sound generated effects, background music and much more. On top of that, GiG has taken a stake in the upcoming album from Erik which will be released simultaneously with the game launch,” said managing director of GiG Games, Mathias Larsson about the collaboration with the renowned Swedish popstar.

Meanwhile, Segerstedt was also keen to express his enthusiasm: “I am very excited about this opportunity. I am used to co-working with record labels, however this is a totally new experience for me. Making sounds and effects for the game is very inspiring and I believe my expertise and experience as an artist will bring a new dimension to the game ‘Popstar’.”

So, there you have it, folks. There’s a new slot game coming to town and it’s gonna be BIG! Watch this space for more information on the exact release date of Popstar and when it will be available in a Canadian-friendly online casino near you.
