Swedish iGaming expert NetEnt is now set to sail for Viking territory after revealing that it has secured the rights to create a slot game based on the hit TV drama series Vikings.
The developer’s latest slot concept was unveiled at ICE Totally Gaming 2018 in London, and has been inspired by the smash hit Vikings television show. The show follows the adventures and pillages of an infamous clan of Norse warriors, taking place in the icy tundra’s of Scandinavia.
Players will be welcomed to join this horde of Vikings as they invade France and England and pillage their way to glory. The Vikings will also assist players in searching for massive riches along the way, all thanks to multiple bonus features and high-volatility action.
NetEnt will be releasing its new Vikings mobile slot towards the fourth quarter of 2018, along with another exclusive branded slots title: Narcos. Both slots will be available at all of NetEnt’s online casino partners, and will be fully optimised for both desktop and mobile play as well.
NetEnt CPO Henrik Fagerlund has noted that his firm’s latest announcement demonstrates the hard work being put in behind the scenes to offer players a massive selection of high-quality slots. According to him, to be able to provide players with exclusive branded games shows just how dedicated the developer is to expanding its portfolio with thrilling new titles.
Fagerlund noted that Vikings has become one of TV’s most popular shows since its first season aired back in 2013. It appeals to a broad audience of fans across the globe with its historical angle and classic theme, the CPO noted, stating that he is sure that players will be looking forward to the Vikings slot’s launch later in 2018.
Vikings airs on the HISTORY channel in the USA, and has been conceptualised by its creator and executive director Michael Hirst. The Vikings-inspired slot from NetEnt will feature plenty of drama, highlights and graphics from the drama that tells tales of the epic journeys of the Dark Ages’ fiercest residents.
NetEnt’s new Vikings mobile slot will be integrated into all NetEnt-powered casinos once it lands later this year, and will be available for both real money and free-demo play, according to the prolific Swedish slots creator.
