Feeling in the mood for big, hairy, muscle-bound men running around getting muddy? Then this is the perfect time to get into Vikings, the hit TV show by TM Productions and Take 5 Productions- plus the brand-new slot version that NetEnt has just announced and is releasing in 2018.
NetEnt has secured a deal with A+E Networks to make the official slot of Vikings, a critically acclaimed drama series. Sure, there have been many Viking-themed slots over the years, from Microgaming’s Thunderstruck to Yggdrasil’s Vikings Go Wild, but this one will actually feature characters and images from the Vikings TV show that has taken fans of history and drama by storm.
The series follows the adventures of a certain Norse clan from the dark ages in Scandinavia. Ragnar Lothbrok, based on a historical figure, takes his family on a quest to plunder England for it’s riches just as happened in the nation’s formative years. Along the way he faces deadly, scheme local lords, the new wave of Christianity, unexpected allies and even a few betrayals from his own warriors. This exciting show features bone-jarring combat, high drama and complex characters, plus a dose of mystical Norse mythology. The show airs on History in the US and has the backing of creator and Executive Producer Michael Hirst, famous for The Tudors.
This slot should be coming to any casino and bingo site that has an up-to-date NetEnt catalogue, such as Slingo . Keep an eye out for it on your favourite sites towards the end of 2018. We can expect to see the top characters like Ragnar, Bjorn and Lagertha appearing on the reels, plus hopefully some wild, Viking action for the feature rounds.
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. Vikings has quickly become a TV favourite 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.”
