Stockholm-listed casino supplier NetEnt has launched its new Vikings video slot game, based on the hit TV series.
Following an agreement with A+E Networks earlier this year, the Vikings slot features star characters including Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel) and Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick), along with immersive footage and imagery inspired by the historical drama TV series, which has been renewed for a sixth season.
Players will be able to take out their sun compasses and set sail to the brutal and mysterious Dark Ages with the famous Norse clan as they battle for their plunder.
The 5-reel, 3-row, 243 betways games introduces new Hotspot and Shield Wall features, plus a Raid Spins symbol and Raid Spins mode, where the excitement is extended by boosting the game to a 7-reel, 5-row, 78,125 betways reel area.
“With its epic storytelling and loyal global fanbase, Vikings is an iconic franchise. It is a perfect brand for us to partner with and to bring to life for slots players,” said NetEnt director of game products Bryan Upton. “Since first announcing the partnership at ICE in February the anticipation and excitement has been building all year. At NetEnt, we are huge fans of Vikings too and are delighted with the product we’ve created.”
Shares in NetEnt AB (STO:NET_B) were trading down 1.92 per cent at SEK39.32 per share in Stockholm Thursday morning.
