Narcos, a Netflix original crime drama series, is among the most viewed series in Canada. The show has been nominated for and won prestigious awards. So, when NetEnt announced that they have the rights to develop an online slot based on the critically acclaimed series – we lost our minds!
Bringing the drama to the reels is the collaboration between NetEnt and Gaumont. Gaumont is the producer of Narcos and is one of the oldest film companies; the executives at Gaumont are extremely excited about this venture. In fact, they decided to partner with NetEnt because of their track record. In addition, they hope that Netent will be able to give Narcos fans a new and entertaining way to experience Narcos.
The Narcos online slot is NetEnt’s biggest deal to date. Furthermore, they believe that this move will convey their intentions to create branded games for global gamblers.
The announcement was made in London at the ICE Totalling Gaming event. The company also advised that along with Narcos it has also secured the rights to produce a Vikings themed online slot.
Narcos and other branded Slots
We already know that NetEnt has a long-standing success rate of converting movie titles to slots. Last month, the software company announced that it would be developing an online slot based on Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. While the release date for the Jumanji slot has not yet been disclosed, they have confirmed that the Vikings slot will be released in 2018.
Vikings is a historical drama that is centred on Ragnor Lothbrok, a Scandinavian raider. The series is a visual masterpiece and has amassed a huge viewership too. In this venture, NetEnt will collaborate with A+E Networks to bring the raids of Ragnor and his crew to the reels. Like Narcos, the development will include the company that produces the show. This will ensure that Vikings fans will enjoy a superb online gaming experience.
We are anxiously awaiting the release of these world-famous titles, but in the interim, you can play other NetEnt slots here.
