The week following the iGaming Conference in London always bring big news. First, you should know that London ICE is one of the largest conferences worldwide for iGaming. Second, its worth knowing that international game providers like NYX, NetEnt and IGT all have a booth there. Plus they all have exclusive news to reveal. Luckily, our team was at the event to provide coverage and we’ve got all the insights you
want! Get ready, because it’s a big one. Indeed, according to Henrik Fagerlund, CPO of NetEnt, the Swedish game studio secured the right to the history channel TV show Vikings. Under the agreement, NetEnt will create a video slot inspired by the show. This is one game that sure is now very anticipated. Especially, given NetEnt’s Nordic roots.
Following the news Fagerlund said
“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.” Unfortunately, NetEnt has yet to reveal the exact launched for the upcoming hit game. But stay tuned we’ll keep you posted.
What to expect from the Viking slot?
All and all, we think that the new game release is likely to land in the lobby of PA Casinos early Q4. Of course, you already know that NetEnt is renown for creating blockbuster inspired games like the Planet of the Apes. Which means we can expect stunning graphics and great mechanics given that Planet of the Apes has a lot of actions and innovations. We must admit, that even if the dual reel feature of Planet of the Apes is pretty cool. We hope NetEnt will keep the Viking games on a more standard grid. And of course, add some of that uniqueness that only NetEnt knows how to do so well.
