At this year’s ICE, NetEnt gave the official announcement that they plan on releasing two new online slots which are based on two television hit series. One of them being Narcos, and the other being Vikings. We are sure that the fans will not be disappointed because if one thing is sure, it is that NetEnt is famous for making great online slots, especially when they are based on pop culture.
We all know that NetEnt is one of the leading providers of digital gaming solutions. Luckily for the fans, the oldest film company Gaumont, decided to give them the exclusive rights for the Narcos so that this Golden Globe and Emmy winning show can be made accessible to the world of online gambling, as well.
Narcos is renown acclaimed action-packed series which premiered to both critical and consumer acclaim. Their popularity continues to grow worldwide, and it is available to view in over 130 countries.
Most likely, the game will be released under the Narcos slot name, and as such it will join the NetEnt online slots portfolio of branded titles including names such as:
Having in mind that the TV show is action packed, we are sure that the slot will be just as heated, and rife with bonus features.
Henrik Fagerlund, Chief Product Officer of NetEnt said, "We’re continuing to push boundaries with our branded games and Narcos is certainly one of our biggest deals to date. The series became an overnight sensation with a huge fan base all over the world and it gives us yet another demographic who can have fun playing our games."
As for the Head of Legal and Business Affairs at Gaumont, Tim Stephen, he added: "NetEnt is a world leading provider of premier online gaming solutions, and we trust them to develop and create a gaming property that will thrill the millions of Narcos fans around the world and provide a new way for them to experience and engage with the brand."
Along with Narcos slot, we can also expect to see the Vikings slot on the market soon. This is yet another amazing and acclaimed TV series which takes us to the Scandinavian Dark Ages, as the Vikings are preparing to invade both England and France.
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 favorite 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 release of Vikings slot is scheduled towards the end of 2018, and we all need to get prepared to be amazed because NetEnt has spoiled us, and we are used to seeing nothing but the best. Of course, we expect nothing less with Narcos slot as well.
