At the beginning of the year, NetEnt brought us the exciting news of a new slot game Vikings, based on the popular TV series. NetEnt’s Vikings slot will be the third branded 2018 release, after The Phantom’s Curse and the Jumanji™ Video Slot. Just like its predecessors, Vikings is expected to be a big hit…
NetEnt have reported success after success with official slot games of brands, TV shows and movies. As they show no sign of slowing down, NetEnt closed a deal with the makers of the historical drama series Vikings, which is based on the tales of the legendary hero from Norse mythology Ragnar Lothbrok.
At this moment, we can only guess how NetEnt will translate the intensity of the series to the reels.
We expect that our favourite game developer will pay great homage to the series, as well as to the Nordic mythical tradition, especially considering how the producer has its origins deep in Scandinavia. In addition to the main man, we might expect other leading characters from the series to make an appearance on the reels too.
What’s more, as Ragnar Lothbrok was known for his ruthlessness and violent raids of England and France, we might see some battles and invasions depicted in the game – and maybe even a few nudges as to what’s about to come in the upcoming season.
As many know, Vikings wasn’t the only announcement to come out of ICE. NetEnt also teamed up with the producers of the crime drama series Narcos, with the series based on the life of infamous drug baron Pablo Escobar.
Quite how NetEnt will translate this action to the small screen in online casino slot entertainment is also unknown – but we can’t wait to find out!
However, it now looks as though NetEnt’s Narcos slot game will be released next year. While this may be disappointing news, it promises more branded titles in the pipeline for 2019 – with the games producer continuing to make partnerships with successful titles in television, film and music.
That can only be a good thing.
The first images of the Vikings slot game will be released on YouTube in the coming weeks. With the release of the trailer, we can get a clearer idea about what this new branded slot game will look like and whether our initial musings come close to the real deal.
We still have to wait a few months before we can actually play this new NetEnt 2018 slot, but stay tuned for plenty of free spins deals on the 22nd November 2018 launch day!
