Ever since the news broke at ICE that NetEnt would be adding to their trilogy of Rock-themed slots ‘NetEnt Rocks’ with the Jimi Hendrix video slot, we’ve been keen (to say the least!) to get our hands on NetEnt’s 2016 Q2 Roadmap. And today’s the day! NetEnt have just announced the latest of their new slots, upcoming for release in the coming months. And surprise, surprise, first to grace our desktops and mobiles will be the Jimi Hendrix slot.
But, while this is the slot we’ve been waiting for, now we know what else is to come, we have a feeling May and June are going to be equally as exciting for NetEnt fans as April, with the introduction of Football: Champions Cup and Theme Park: Tickets of Fortune.
APRIL NETENT GAME RELEASES
APRIL 21ST: JIMI HENDRIX
For regular Netentcasino readers, the announcement of the Jimi Hendrix slot will come as no surprise. The minute the news broke at the ICE Total Gaming Event in London we posted this article to announce the final two slots in the NetEnt Rocks trilogy: the Jimi Hendrix and the Motörhead Slots respectively.
But, while we have no indication (bar a few images we’ve managed to obtain) of exactly how NetEnt’s Jimi Hendrix will look, I think we can all agree that fans of the legend will be swarming to try the slot for the music (though we have no doubt that, just like in the long-awaited Guns ‘N Roses video slot, the graphics will also be exceptional).
MAY NETENT GAME RELEASES
MAY 23RD: FOOTBALL: CHAMPIONS CUP
I think we can all safely presume that Football: Champions Cup is going to be a slot based around the great game itself, the sport the Americans call ‘Soccer’: Football. We’ll even go so far as to presume that it could be linked to the Champions League. All in all, we think it will be a great addition to NetEnt’s current video slot selection. Those who are passionate about the game don’t just want to watch the game, thus why video games such as Fifa have proven so popular, and Football: Champions Cup should give those fans a chance to play a football slot and, potentially, win big in the process.
Whether the slot will include players or teams, we don’t yet know, but if prevalent Champions League teams such as Real Madrid, Ajax, Manchester United and Barcelona make an appearance, we have no doubt the Football: Champions Cup slot will be scoring goals with players worldwide.
JUNE NETENT GAME RELEASES
JUNE 22ND: THEME PARK: TICKETS OF FORTUNE
The last in the series of 2016 Q2 releases for NetEnt will be Theme Park: Tickets of Fortune- due for release on the 22nd June. As with most new slots, all we know about the NetEnt release is the title. But, while some titles are fairly vague, Theme Park: Tickets of Fortune is pretty clear.
With a theme park theme, we imagine the slot will include all the things people love most about the modern entertainment attractions- rollercoasters and rides. Alternatively, perhaps Theme Park: Tickets of Fortune could hark back to the golden age of funfairs? Either way, we have no doubt NetEnt software will do justice to what will undoubtedly be a bright, fun new video slot.
