NetEnt announces plans to create new slot based on epic TV drama Vikings

Net Entertainment has announced that it will be releasing a brand new slot inspired by the cult TV drama Vikings.

The Scandi developer confirmed the partnership with A+E Networks at the International Casino Expo in London, adding that it expects the new title to hit online casino shelves in late 2018.

“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,” said Henrik Fagerlund, Chief Product Officer of NetEnt.

Vikings follows the fortunes of a notorious Norse clan as they aim to successfully invade England and France. Impressing fans and critics alike, this epic saga has already spanned 5 seasons with a 6th set to air later this year.

“Vikings has quickly become a TV favourite since the first season in 2013 and appeals to a vast audience worldwide,” Fagerlund added. “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.”

NetEnt hasn’t released any details about what we can expect from the new arrival. If their other branded content is anything to go by we can expect slick design and plenty of extras. The developer has already released music-themed slots based on Jimi Hendrix and Guns ‘N Roses as well as movie franchises including Planet of the Apes.

It was a busy day for NetEnt yesterday who also announced details of a partnership with movie studio Gaumont to create a slot based on the cult drama Narcos. One of the most popular shows around the globe on streaming service Netflix, the new slot will be inspired by the life and extraordinary times of the Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar. We’ll keep you up to date with any details and previews of the new slots as soon as we can.
