Leading casino games developer NetEnt unveiled plans to create a pokie machine around the Conan brand. The software supplier chose to reveal the news at the annual London Conference Week 2019 earlier this week. The news was met with much enthusiasm from pokies lovers, with the promise of massive jackpot prizes. Read on to find out what went down at the grand opening of the ICE London expo.
NetEnt Secure Rights to Create Conan the Barbarian Branded Game
NetEnt took advantage of the setting where plenty of industry leaders were present to hear its plans for the year. The casino software supplier revealed that it had secured rights to develop a pokie game themed around Conan the Barbarian. The sword-wielding superhero has been adapted in many popular culture projects, including movies, and board games. NetEnt has a history of adapting movies such Planet of the Apes, Vikings and recently Jumanji into games.
The director of games at NetEnt was jovial about the creating of the pokies game, hoping that it keeps the tradition of NetEnt slot machine games. Speaking at the expo, he said “Conan is a character and a brand with a fantastic history and legions of fans all over the world. We are honoured to be creating our own adaptation of Conan and can’t wait to give him the hallmark NetEnt treatment.”
Other Partnerships on the Pipeline
Conan was not the only project that NetEnt is going to release this year. They also announced the partnership with iconic Rock ‘n Roll artist Ozzy Osbourne. Kiwis can expect the theme of the slot machine to be around goth characters that are also musically inspired. Therese Hillman, the CEO of NetEnt could not resist the urge to choose her favourite games out of the two. “I think Conan is a great brand and its perfect for a slot game but I think Ozzy is very special”, she said.
