NetEnt’s 2017 Q4 Roadmap Released!
Published on by Adam
The wait is over! NetEnt have just this second released their final roadmap for 2017 which details new slots you can expect to see before the year is out. We’ve already had many classics from the previous three quarters (with Emojiplanet and The Legend of Shangri-La still to come), but Halloween and Christmas usually see our favourite Swedish games developer move through the gears to finish the year on a triumphant note.
But wait! NetEnt have not detailed any December releases for their Q4 2017 roadmap just yet. Perhaps they’re being coy to keep suspense at an all-time high, but we’re certain you’ll be seeing more slots and casino games around Christmas time once the final month rolls round. As ever, we’ll keep you updated as soon as any NetEnt Christmas slot/casino game is announced!
Until then, let’s take you through what NetEnt have in store during October and November 2017, and remember to check back in over the next few days for more detailed overviews of each slot game!
New NetEnt Slots in October 2017
Blood Suckers 2 – 12th October
Not a difficult start, but one that’s sure to get plenty of you excited, is the wider release of Blood Suckers 2! The first instalment is one of the most famous NetEnt creations ever, with the title a mainstay on articles such as “Top slots with the best RTP” due to its return-to-player percentage clocking in at a whopping 98%.
Check out the teaser trailer below to get in the mood for Blood Suckers 2!
Despite the RTP not being quite as high the second time (96.94%), it’s still set to be one of the biggest slots of the year. Many of you may already know that you can play Blood Suckers 2 at Betsson-branded online casinos right now, with NetEnt Casino including it as one of the top 5 exclusive slots by NetEnt to sample.
However, once new casinos get access to Blood Suckers 2 on 12th October, you’re sure to be in for a real treat packed with free spins, deposit bonuses, potential tournaments and even more goodies and treats. The fact that Halloween will be just around the corner can’t be a coincidence, but NetEnt aren’t done with simply Blood Suckers 2 for this spooky celebration…
Planet of the Apes™ – 23rd October
That’s because the highly-anticipated Planet of the Apes video slot by NetEnt will be released just 11 days later! An October drop had already been confirmed within NetEnt’s half-year report, but we’re delighted to have an official day to pop into our calendars.
NetEnt CEO Per Eriksson commented that Planet of the Apes would see “something extremely new when it comes to mobile”.
The concept of a Planet of the Apes video slot isn’t hard to grasp, especially as many of you will have seen this summer’s blockbuster hit War for the Planet of the Apes. After developing a partnership with 20th Century Fox, it’s another branded game we can look forward to – with the agreement encompassing the entire portfolio of Apes films rather than just the recent release!
One guaranteed aspect is that Planet of the Apes will be a slot ready-made for mobile casino gameplay.
Any NetEnt casino game released in this day and age will be available on your iPad/iPhones and Android smartphones and tablets, but Mr Eriksson’s comments above tease something particularly extraordinary.
We can’t wait for a teaser trailer to be released, which NetEnt Casino will bring you as soon as it’s available.
New NetEnt Slot in November 2017
Finn and the Swirly Spin – 23rd November
Exactly a month later sees Finn and the Swirly Spin make its way onto our desktop and mobile screens, and we admit to being a bit nonplussed.
While the first two games from the 2017 Q4 roadmap by NetEnt are self-explanatory, Finn and the Swirly Spin has us scratching our heads.
Of course, we’re expecting some form of character called Finn to be in the mix, but whether that’s a human, an animal, or something else entirely cannot be confirmed.
The Swirly Spin finish could, perhaps, see the reels turn in a specific and unique way? We’re all a bit perplexed at the moment!
Whatever the premise of NetEnt’s Finn and the Swirly Spin, we’re sure it’ll be a cracker well worthy of your time.
What’s more, there is sure to be a huge selection of the best internet casinos lining up to offer you this title on November 23rd.
