This year, a special announcement made at ICE revealed that yet another incredible game is on its way in the form of the NetEnt Narcos Pokie. NetEnt already has an exceptional online game portfolio, and now, the developer has partnered with one of the oldest film companies in the world, Gaumont. What that means for players is that the leading providers of outstanding online gaming solutions have struck a deal to create a Narcos themed-Pokie, based on the popular, award-nominated television drama.
If you’re one of the few people who didn’t follow the series, here’s the lowdown. The thrilling crime series, based on a true story, first premiered on Netflix in 2015. But, it didn’t stop there. Narcos went on to continue its expansion in global popularity as the third season became the most wanted television show in the United States.
Today, Narcos can be viewed in 130 countries across the globe, and it’s been nominated for an Emmy and a Golden Globe. Season 4 is already in production so the brand’s success in creating another critically acclaimed web television is pretty much a given.
This new addition to NetEnt’s online Pokie portfolio is another big name to add to its well-known titles, including the company’s latest deal with A+E Networks to bring Vikings to online casinos. NetEnt’s strategy seems to be to secure the rights and then get to work developing recognised and much-loved titles (think along the lines of The Invisible Man, Planet of the Apes and Jumanji). The Swedish gaming giant is pushing gaming boundaries and CPO, Henrik Fagerlund is thrilled to have the chance to work on such an exciting project whose fan base extends around the world.
We’ve no doubt that the brand-new NetEnt Narcos Pokie is set to be a true masterpiece, aimed at providing many hours of entertainment for online gamers who love nothing more to make their deposits, place their best and spin those reels.
At the same time, it’s the perfect opportunity to promote a whole new way of experiencing the TV series, according to Tim Stephen, the head of legal and business affairs at Gaumont. The renowned film company was established way back in 1895 with offices in both Los Angeles and Paris. The company’s library boasts more than 1,100 titles, including well-known blockbusters from Federico Fellini, Luc Besson, Jean-Luc Godard, Jean-Jacques Beineix and many others.
If you’re a fan of TV-themed Pokies and were obsessed with the TV series, we’ve no doubt the Narcos Pokie will bring you hours of fun. There’s little information available about the Pokie right now, except that it will be big on bonuses, but knowing NetEnt, it’s sure to be an immersive, technologically thrilling game. Keep checking in with your favourite online casinos for a release date and, hopefully, free spins to try out on the game. Until then, keep placing those bets and spinning those reels.
