Vikings is the brand new and exciting slot from NetEnt based upon the hugely successful television show of the same name. The show, which is in its sixth season and set to released soon, has been running since 2013. It is massively popular across the globe, and many iGamers are already huge fans. Netent have decided to give the fans which they share a little reward by making this new game, set to be released on the 22nd of November. So, if you love Netent games and you love the show, then the Vikings Slot is going to be perfect for you! Take a look below to find out more about this brand-new slot, straight from Valhalla!
The big question that all the fans have is how will NetEnt recreate Vikings in the slot machine format? So far it looks like NetEnt have done a great job of implementing the Vikings concept in a slot.
One of the main things they have done is use the main characters as the slot reel symbols, which we think will keep many fans happy. They include Floki, Bjorn, Lagertha and Ragnar Lothbrok. In addition to just having them as symbols, NetEnt have chosen to make them stacked symbols. This means that full-reel images of your favourite characters will feature in the game, and because they’re stacked symbols you can potentially win big.
We’re not sure yet what storylines from the show they might try to incorporate, this is mostly because the brand-new season of Vikings is not yet out. But given the quality of NetEnts previous branded slots, we can guarantee that it is going to be good – for those of you who want to know more, then check out the teaser trailer (see below for more). We are sure, however, that NetEnt have incorporated a Shield Wall feature into the game (a cluster of random mystery symbols on the slot reel which transform into other potentially needed symbols), which is a Viking classic from both the show and history!
In addition to the massively popular Vikings being made into slot game, the Netflix classic series Narcos also looks set to be turned into a great slot. Back in February’s ICE Gaming event, NetEnt announced that ‘the hunt is on’ alongside giant banners of Pablo Escobar. This has lead many to believe that NetEnt will be creating a Narcos branded game, maybe in which you team up with the DEA to catch the cartel.
The NetEnt 2018 gaming schedule does not have any details of this potential release, so it looks most likely that it will come out in early 2019. Why early 2019? Well, the release of season 4 of Narcos will be this November, so we can’t imagine NetEnt’s exciting slot concept will come too long after that. After all, they’ll want to make sure all their fans will be able to enjoy the excitement of both release at roughly the same time.
Fans of the Viking show will be asking what’s next, and we can happily say that a new teaser trailer has been released on Youtube for the Vikings slot. If you want to check it out, then head over to the official NetEnt Youtube site to watch it. We leave you here with a glance of what to expect from this great TV hit converted now into a new NetEnt slot called for success:
It looks like it is going to be another great branded slot from NetEnt, and as ever we think that reader should expect a Viking longboat load of free spins when the slot is released on the 22nd of November!
