NetEnt secures rights to create Vikings™ slot game based on the hit series Vikings
It was yesterday during ICE 2018, one of the largest casino gaming events in the world, that NetEnt announced an amazing two new branded slots of which I already revealed the Narcos™ slot yesterday. Today it’s the turn to the second branded slot game announced, the Vikings™ slot, which will bring the critically acclaimed drama series Vikings to the reels later on in 2018.
4th branded NetEnt slot in 2018
On the 24th of January, another Universal Monsters™ slot was released by NetEnt, but little did I know that a whole series of branded slots would follow this year.
I know that if one software supplier in the industry is able to extend its portfolio of branded slot games with the speed of light, it’s NetEnt. However, four branded slot games in one year is certainly a record.
What started with Universal Monsters™ The Phantom’s Curse, based on the Phantom of the Opera, will continue later on this year with Jumani™, Narcos™, and the Vikings™ slot.
The fourth branded NetEnt slot will be inspired by the popular TV series, Vikings, and follows the exploits of a famous Norse clan from the dark ages in Scandinavia as they aim to successfully invade England and France. This highly-anticipated slot game will be released towards the end of 2018.
Henrik Fagerlund, Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, said: “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.”
Fagerlund added, “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.”
The series from creator and Executive Producer Michael Hirst airs on HISTORY® in the US, bringing a family saga that tells the remarkable tales of the lives and epic adventures of the raiders and explorers of the Dark Ages.
Thanks to the series, the world of the Vikings is brought back to life through the journey of Ragnar Lothbrok, the first Viking to emerge from Norse legend and onto the pages of history.
Ragnar Lothbrok is the greatest hero of his age. The series tells the saga of the fearless warrior himself as well as Ragnar’s band of Viking brothers and his family as he rises to become King of the Viking tribes.
