Vikings and Narcos – NetEnt wades in to TV slots

NetEnt has regaled us with some exciting news this week, as the game provider announced the amazing slots they have in store. Read on to learn more.

NetEnt breaks into TV slot territory

As a top slot game developer, NetEnt has earned its stellar reputation by bringing fans diverse, technically interesting and visually stunning games. These have run the gamut from fairy tales like Jack and the Beanstalk, to movie-based slots (like the Universal Monsters series) and jackpots such as Hall of Gods.

In short, there seems to be no creative direction that NetEnt is incapable of picking up and developing to great success. That’s why the announcement of forthcoming titles has stirred such excitement among fans.

NetEnt conquers with Vikings

Who doesn’t love a blood-soaked saga of conquest, ancient civilisations and impossibly attractive (and often muddy) protagonists? No one, that’s who. Which is why NetEnt’s announcement at the International Casino Expo in London was met with a great deal of interest.

The game provider has teamed up with A+E Networks to bring slots fans a new game based on the hit series Vikings. So far, viewers have been treated to 5 seasons of this Scandinavian-inspired historical drama, with plenty of battles, intrigue, and drama to keep them hooked and awaiting the 6th season with bated breath.

What’s in store for this slot? We couldn’t say just yet but NetEnt’s Chief Product Officer Henrik Fagerlund put the launch date somewhere around the end of 2018. Polish your battle axe, comb your beard and get ready for one incredible slot.

Narcos slot from NetEnt

There was more to come from NetEnt at the Casino Expo, thanks to the announcement of a second TV-based slot on the same day. Just like Vikings, this next TV series is also based on conquest and bloody takeovers but this the setting is wildly different (though it makes for no less compelling viewing).

Following the rise and fall of Pablo Escobar in the 1970s, Narcos began in 2015 and kept viewers hooked for three seasons. Breath-taking battles and familial drama feature side-by-side with a scathing critique of the government of the time, a state of affairs that made the multi-billion dollar drug trade possible in the first place. All of this brought to life through excellent cinematography and realistic characters. It’s no wonder Narcos has already cemented itself as one of those must-watch television series.

And now, players will be able to enjoy Narcos when they visit their favourite casinos!
