NetEnt is well-known across the gambling market for its great range of branded slots based on acclaimed films like Phantom of the Opera and Planet of the Apes – and now the company is now trying its hand with creating games based on hit television series. The company has recently announced that its team is working on two new slots based on Vikings and Narcos.

Recently, NetEnt announced its new partnership with Gaumont, the production company behind Narcos. The hit television show has been nominated for Golden Globes and Emmys and has become one of the biggest hits on Netflix. Narcos is currently in production for season 4, so it is likely that the release of the new slot will coincide with the launch of the newest episodes.

“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,” says Tim Stephen, Head of Legal and Business Affairs at Gaumont.

The next branded slot that we will see from NetEnt is Vikings, as the slots developer has recently signed a deal with A + E Networks. Like Narcos, Vikings is a critically-acclaimed series that has been nominated for both Emmys ad Golden Globes. It will be interesting to see how NetEnt brings this thrilling TV series to life as an online slot.

“Vikings has quickly become a TV favourite since the first season in 2013 and appeals to a vast audience worldwide," says Henrik Fagerlund, Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, "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.”

At the moment, there is little information about the games – aside that they are in production. We don’t know anything about their actual content, but we are excited to see what NetEnt comes up with. We know that they will be impressive games that offer players exciting features and fantastic graphics.

The launch of these two online slots is sure to be a treat for players across the web. Television remains in its golden era, and it is certainly a wise choice for slots developers like NetEnt to create games that feature these impressive shows.
