The historical drama TV series, Vikings, is currently heading into its fifth season, and viewers are continuously enthralled by the saga of Ragnar Lothbrok and his adventures as one of the best-known Norse heroes. Now, the leading provider of digital gaming solutions, NetEnt, has announced its intentions to launch a game based on the award-winning series. The new Vikings slot game will be created thanks to a deal signed with A+E Networks, which holds an exclusive license to act as the Vikings agent for gaming, gambling and experiential business. It is believed that the new Vikings slot will be released to the online gambling industry at NetEnt powered online casinos towards the end of this year. The chief product officer of NetEnt, Henrik Fagerlund was thrilled to introduce the idea of a Vikings-themed slot game to the company’s players. “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,” he said. “Vikings has quickly become a TV favorite since the first season in 2013 and appeals to a vast audience worldwide,” he added. “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.” Vikings, which is an international Irish/Canadian co-production by TM Productions and Take 5 Products, is screened on the HISTORY channel in the United States. It is brought to the small screens by the acclaimed Executive Produce Michael Hirst who received an Academy Award for his movie Elizabeth. Norse Themed Slots at Online Casinos Vikings and Norse legends have always been popular themes in online casino slot games, and some of the best games developers have brought top notch titles to the industry based on this theme. One of these that come to mind is Yggdrasil’s delightful and quite hysterical Vikings go Berzerk slot machine – a 5 reel, 25 pay line game. NetEnt is also big on games with this theme, and is getting ready to roll out its Norse Gods centered, Asgardian Stones slot this very week. Asgardian Stones will boast some truly entertaining features as you crush the mystical stones to reach the mystical gateway. This game contains a Colossal Crush feature where rows of symbols are crushed, and all the crushed symbols are replaced by new ones, with the chance to grab multipliers of up to 4 x. The Bonus Wheel in Asgardian Stones has the opportunity to award you with up to 25 free spins.
