NetEnt announces Narcos slot is currently in development
Now here is a slot to look forward to! Casino software company NetEnt has agreed a deal to build an online slot game themed on the Emmy award-nominated TV show, Narcos. The show, which has completed 3 seasons on Netflix, has been huge global hit and now looks set to be recreated in a real money slot in the coming months.
Netent made the announcement last Tuesday at the International Casino Expo in London. The game will be built under license from Gaumont, who produce Narcos. The new slot is expected to feature several key characters from the crime-themed show, and we would be surprised if drug-kingpin Pablo Escobar will not be the key symbol in this game.
NetEnt’s Chief Product Officer Henrik Fagerlund said: “We’re continuing to push boundaries with our branded games and Narcos is certainly one of our biggest deals to date. The series became an overnight sensation with a huge fan base all over the world and it gives us yet another demographic who can have fun playing our games.”
Gaumont’s Head of Legal and Business Affairs, Tim Stephen commented: “NetEnt is a world leading provider of premier online gaming solutions, and we trust them to develop and create a gaming property that will thrill the millions of Narcos fans around the world and provide a new way for them to experience and engage with the brand.”
NetEnt is pretty well known for their impressive range of branded slots, such as movie-themed Scarface, Creature from the black Lagoon and Planet of the Apes and another new movie-themed game in the making with the Jumanji slot. The company has also produced succesful games based on other brands such as Guns ‘N Roses, Motörhead and Jimi Hendrix.
