London’s ICE Totally Gaming 2018 conference is underway, and some pretty awesome news has just been confirmed by NetEnt – a Narcos slot and Vikings slot are on their way! We’ve recently had the official Jumanji™ Video Slot reveal, but now it’s time for the bingeworthy series to hit our screens!
It’s the first time NetEnt have gone after a Netflix Original, but not their first venture into TV shows.
They’ve thrashed out a deal with film production company Gaumont to bring their smash TV hit Narcos to online casino!
The premise revolves around the Colombian drug trade, panning back and forth between the cartels and drug enforcement police as they look to stay on top of one and other.
“NetEnt is a world leading provider of premier online gaming solutions, and we trust them to develop and create a gaming property that will thrill the millions of Narcos fans around the world” – Tim Stephen, Head of Legal and Business Affairs at Gaumont.
Despite there being several potential angles, it seems clear which one NetEnt have gone for. The image above states that “the hunt is on”, heavily suggesting that we’ll be joining forces with DEA agents Murphy and Peña to catch Escobar and his Medellin cartel.
“We’re continuing to push boundaries with our branded games and Narcos is certainly one of our biggest deals to date. The series became an overnight sensation with a huge fan base all over the world, and it gives us yet another demographic who can have fun playing our games.” – Henrik Fagerlund, NetEnt CPO
We can’t wait to see how NetEnt transfer the pure intensity and suspense of Narcos to the reels – proving yet again why NetEnt online casinos are the best!
If one acclaimed TV show isn’t enough, NetEnt have gone after another with a dedicated Vikings casino game. It’s one we’re sure hits closer to home due to the obvious Nordic references, meaning they’ll be even more determined to do the title justice in a similar manner to the likes of Hall of Gods.
“Vikings has quickly become a TV favourite since the first season in 2013 and appeals to a vast audience worldwide. It’s a classic and historical theme packed with action and we’re sure the players will be looking forward to the launch later this year.” – Henrik Fagerlund, NetEnt CPO
With the series revolving around the adventures of celebrated Viking Ragnar Lothbrok, we’re hopeful it’ll feature plenty of invasion features – with England and France in the firing line. Also, as it’s a branded game, perhaps we’ll be treated to official footage – or better yet, exclusive scenes!
“To be able to provide our players with a different genre of branded game, showcases the hard work we’re putting in behind the scenes to create such high-quality content and further expand our portfolio.” – Mr Fagerlund concluded
Quite when we’ll see these two slots is currently up in the air, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed for some time in 2018.
Keep your eyes peeled on our new NetEnt slots news section, as we’ll bring more information as soon as it’s released.
