NetEnt slots launched during the 2nd half of 2019
Last year, NetEnt promised to increase the number of new video slots being launched in 2019 and so far, they’re keeping their promise with a total of 9 games launched in the first half year of 2019. I do expect even more games to be released in the second half of 2019, but the exact number is unknown. However, 7 new slots have been announced already and in this article you’ll find an overview of all the upcoming games.
New NetEnt slots 2019 launched in the 3rd and 4th quarter
The number of video slots launched by NetEnt is increasing with at least two new video slots launched every single month! This year, it all started with a magic-themed slot thanks to the Golden Grimoire™ slot launch, followed by a video slot offering players to enjoy the horse races. Scudamore’s Super Stakes™ was followed the mysterious Temple of Nudges™ slot while super heroes showed up in Wild Worlds™ and Arcane Reel Chaos™. In between we saw the western-themed Dead or Alive 2™ video slot while more action can be found in the Narcos™ slot based on the popular Netflix series.
Mercy of the Gods™4th July
From the 4th of July, you have a chance to travel to Egypt where an adventurous archaeologist has just discovered an ancient pyramid. She’s in deep need of some help to figure out the mysteries of ancient Egypt and explore the pyramid and its hidden treasures! On your adventure, there’s no way you can go around Isis and the same goes for the Eye of Ra, one of the most famous symbols, also known as the Udjat!
Three of the Eye of Ra symbols activates the Free Spins feature at the top of the pyramid where you’ll be awarded 5 Free Spins. It’s during these Free Spins the Gift of Life Re-spins will be activated when two Wild symbols land on top of each other. The Wild will expand and cover the entire reel.
The biggest gift given by the Mercy of the Gods™ slot is three Bonus symbols which will lead you to the realm of Anubis. It’s in this secret place that the most precious treasures are hidden, the Gift of Wealth Jackpot.
While enjoying the best of Ancient Egypt, you have a chance to win one of the three progressive jackpots linked to this game. Mercy of the Gods™ will be one of the two new jackpots games launched in the second half of 2019!
Grand Spinn™ 24th July
With this new NetEnt slot, NetEnt is aiming to take you back to the luxurious and glamorous times of Art Deco. This means nothing more than that you can look forward to a classic slot game, although enriched with some modern slot features.
If still alive, Charles Fey most probably wouldn’t recognize the nudge as a slot feature while Multiplier Wilds are a creation of the modern video slot! The game is showing a simple 3-reel slot game in which the one bet line is emphasized by the golden framework and it’s the symbols that end up on this middle reel that counts!
Enjoy this 1-line slot straight from the first spin thanks to x2 Multiplier and the Nudge feature which work perfectly well together. As soon as the Multiplier Wild appears on the reels, winnings will be doubled, but that doesn’t mean the spin has come to an end, because a winning means a Nudge and every Nudge can mean another winning combination! With a bit of luck, this can become a never-ending story, but if not, it certainly will bring classic slot excitement to the reels!
Grand Spinn Superpot™ 24th July
The Grand Spinn™ slot will be launched in two different versions on 24th July 2019. It will be launched as a regular slot as described above but will also be available as a jackpot game. It’s no surprise that this jackpot will be introduced as the Superpot!
The main jackpot will be called the Super Jackpot of which I’m sure it’s going to be progressive, but there will be two more jackpots. I’m not 100% sure if the two additional jackpots will be progressive as well but I’m sure that mystery will be solved as soon as the game appears at the NetEnt Casinos on July 24th!
There will always be the progressive Superpot and each and every spin can potentially trigger a jackpot win! The Multiplier Wilds combined with nudging reels may help to trigger one of the jackpots with a rain of golden coins coming down!
Butterfly Staxx 2™ 22nd August
The Butterfly Staxx™ video slot brings a game in which you enjoy a nice summer night. There’s the Wild Substitutions, the Re-Spins, and the innovative Butterfly Spins. When the Butterfly Spins feature is activated, Cocoon symbols will dominate the reels. They will turn into butterflies, flying from left to right to create large wins during these innovative free spins! And what a feeling to be surrounded by all these beautiful butterflies!
The above is a short description of the first version of the Butterfly Staxx™ slot and I’m sure the theme, the design and the slot features will be inspired by this NetEnt slot. However, I have no clue what the design and the video slot features will be about, but as soon as the first footage of the Butterfly 2™ slot appears on NetEnt’s YouTube channel, you’re the first to find out reading my extended preview review!
Imperial Riches™ 4th September
I have absolutely no clue yet what this new NetEnt slot will be all about. All I know is that it’ll be launched on the 4th of September 2019. The literal meaning of Imperial is related to an empire but empires have been around for a long time and in different parts of the world. So I can’t make much of the title and I think we just have to be patient and wait for the usual YouTube preview video. As soon as this video is published, you obviously find a first review of the video slot on NetEntCasinos.com!
Conan Video Slot™ (date TBA)
Conan the Barbarian is coming your way, but the actual launch date hasn’t been announced yet and all we have so far is the above intro! The intro definitely shows some good animations and a new character-driven branded slot game, built around the legendary Conan. It’s no surprise that it’s the fearsome barbarian that’ll be in the spotlights. Conan has been the subject of numerous films, books, comics and video and board games and soon the barbarian will have its own video slot as well!
“Conan is a character and a brand with a fantastic history, and legions of fans all over the world. We are honoured to be creating our own adaptation of Conan and can’t wait to give him the hallmark NetEnt treatment.” said Bryan Upton, Director of Games at NetEnt.
Ozzy Osbourne™ slot (date TBA)
This upcoming NetEnt slot, which will be launched on a date yet to be announced, follows on from a number of other blockbuster music-themed titles from the NetEnt Rocks series including Guns n’ Roses™, Jimi Hendrix™ and Motorhead™. With the Ozzy Osbourne™ slot, another living legend is coming to the reels, a status he earned himself more than 100 million albums as a solo artist and as by being the lead vocalist of Black Sabbath in the 1970s.
“Rock stars don’t come much bigger, better known, or charismatic than Ozzy Osbourne. Thanks to his larger-than-life personality and outstanding contribution to music, Ozzy has developed a loyal and passionate following over the past 50 years – we can’t wait to bring this to the reels for players to enjoy,” says Bryan Upton, NetEnt Director of Game Products.
Ozzy Osbourne expanded his fan base after appearing as himself in reality TV sensation The Osbournes, alongside wife Sharon and children Kelly and Jack. The deal was brokered by Ozzy Osbourne’s merchandising and brand management partner, Global Merchandising Services.
“NetEnt are the market leaders in their field and we’re incredibly excited to add another of our artists to the exciting NetEnt Rocks family of games,” said Barry Drinkwater, Chairman of Global Merchandising Services.
