If you’ve ever taken a long hard look at the library of games over at NetEnt, then you’ll quickly realise the NetEnt designers have wild, exhaustive, and creative imaginations.
However, not all of the best NetEnt games are ones conjured up from the depths of the designers’ imaginations, many of the best NetEnt slots are adapted from popular tv series (Vikings/Narcos), films (Jumanji) and bands (Motorhead/Guns n Roses).
In this roundup, we’re going to take a look at our favourite branded NetEnt slots.
Pick up your sword and shield and prepare for an epic brawl in this slot based on the HBO series Vikings. The show is set on the battlefields, seas, and realms of the Viking empire in the north of Europe. The show first aired in 2013 and five years later, after it became extremely popular, NetEnt released their 2018 Vikings slot.
The game is a really close replication of the TV show, and you can be sure to find all of your favourite characters here. Not only this, but it is packed full of quality features including a Hotspot Feature, the TV show classic Shield Wall Feature, the Raid Spins symbol, and lastly the Raid Spins mode.
If you want to feel like you are part of a Viking horde, raiding, marauding and pillaging northern Europe, then this is the game for you. If you’re a little more chill than your average Viking, then maybe third, second, or first place is for you.
Unfortunately, Robin Williams doesn’t supply his hilarious presence in this game, but that world-class funnyman aside, NetEnt’s Jumanji is certainly the king of the slots’ jungle.
The game is based on the 1995 classic movie Jumanji, and not the Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s 2017 remake, so, hopefully, this puts many of you at rest. The game is novel in its design and is modelled after the board game from within the film. It is also packed full of features including Monsoon Wilds, 4 different types of free spin, Wild Stampedes, and mystery features and dice rolls.
The theme of the game is incredibly well executed, and, at times while you’re playing, you really do feel that you might get sucked into the other-worldly portal. If you like a 90’s call-back, then this is the game for you. But, if you like something a little more 80’s, then our second place slot will have you wiggling with exciting in your tight leather pants.
‘Welcome to the jungle, NetEnt’s got fun and games!’
That’s right, NetEnt’s Guns ‘n’ Roses video slot is our 2nd place slot in this roundup. Why? Because who can beat having a spin on a top-quality video slot whilst also listening to the greatest hits from Axel, Slash, Izzy, and Duff! That’s right, as you play this slot you can also pick what tunes you want to listen to from the fully licenced Guns ‘n’ Roses setlist (there are no imitations here, they’re all original tracks).
The game features include your classic wild variations, but also an Appetite for Destruction Wild, a Bonus Wheel, Encore Free Spins (where you can go again and give the crowd what they want), a rip-roaring guitar solo multiplier and a Crowd-Pleaser Bonus Game (just make sure your eyeliner, leather low-rise pants, and full perm don’t distract them).
If you don’t like the feel of that serpentine, then you maybe you’re in the wrong business. Rock ‘n’ roll might not be for you, instead, you might feel more at home in the cartel.
In at first place (and it was a tricky decision to make, trust us) is NetEnt’s latest title Narcos, based upon the massively popular Netflix original of the same name. Get your mom-jeans on and your Hawaiian shirts out, because this drug trafficking themed game will have you feeling like the kingpin Pablo Escobar in no time.
The Narcos TV show launched on Netflix back in 2015, and 4 years later, NetEnt launched their video slot. Although it was only launched this year, it has proven to be incredibly popular already.
The game is packed full of Narcos themed features, and you can also play as your favourite characters: agent Murphy, agent Peña, and Gacha. The game features walking wild, a locked-up feature, drive-by feature, and free spins. In each of these, the backdrop of the reels will change between key locations from the first season of Narcos.
NetEnt’s Art Director admits that ‘trying to build the game around a whole TV series is quite tough, especially since Narcos has such varied settings, characters, and timelines’. However, the team at NetEnt have done an absolutely brilliant job in executing this theme, and this is why we think it’s the strongest branded NetEnt game to date.
Whatever your tastes, NetEnt’s branded slots will be sure to satisfy. You can read more about these games in our in-depth reviews section.
NetEnt’s branded games are some of their most popular and even their now defunct and cancelled games such as South Park and Alien get a lot of attention!
