Branded Slot Games by NetEnt

Over the years, the Swedish online casino software provider, Net Entertainment has produced a powerful portfolio, consisting of games which have become hugely popular among players.

Among the group's most sought-after games are those created together with other parties, including Universal Studios, South Park Studios and 20th Century Fox.  The idea of creating slot games based on well-known brands, be they TV shows, films or characters, has proven to be an excellent one. Software companies have shown that these games tend to attract a higher traffic of players who naturally seek out brands with which they are familiar, and which they associate with fun and entertainment.

In this article we examine:

  • The eight branded video slot games created by Net Entertainment since the first one was launched in 2011.
  • Details about the games and what makes them so popular among players at NetEnt powered online casinos today.

List of Net Entertainment Branded Slots

The following is a list of Net Entertainment branded slots, as well as the date the game was released and the second party involved:

Frankenstein Slot

Released: June, 2011

Brand party: Universal Studios

About the Game: The 5 reel, 20 line Frankenstein slot was Net Entertainment's first branded slot and has remained one of the best-loved games among players to this day.  Frankenstein slot retells the classic horror tale, written by Mary Shelley and first published in 1818.  the original story tells of the student of science, Victor Frankenstein, who creates a monster in a scientific experiment.

In 1931, Universal Pictures created the Frankenstein horror movie based on the book, which became a major classic in its own right.  Net Entertainment's brand deal with Universal thus allowed the group to add original pictures and footage from the movie to the reels of the game to create a monster-meets-modern game that took the industry by storm.

Frankenstein slot introduced the ground breaking new Linked Wilds feature to the reels in the main game and free spins rounds, where the wild symbols are spread to two or more adjacent symbols for bigger wins.

During the free spins round of Frankenstein slot, activated by three or more Windmill icons, rewards are huge. The Fire Wild appears on each spin, while winnings are multiplied by five.

Scarface Slot

Released: January, 2012

Brand party: Universal Studios

About the Game: Scarface slot was the second game released thanks to a licensing deal between Net Entertainment and Universal Studios.  The game is based on the 1983 hit classic, Brian De Palma's Scarface, which tells of the rise and fall of mafiosa Tony Montana who ruled Miami's gangland. 

The 5 reel, 20 line slot game boasts three stacked wild symbols on three different reels. These wild symbols trigger the Nudge Spins and Free Spins features, which are rewarding in themselves. However, the main attraction of NetEnt's Scarface is its bonus game, based on the famous shootout sequence in the original movie, "Say Hello To My Little Friend". In this bonus feature, players take the role of Tony Montana as he stands his ground against his enemies, with points awarded for every successful kill.

Net Entertainment has done an excellent job of bringing the grit, tension and suspense of the movie to the reels of its Scarface slot.

South Park Slot

Released: September, 2013

Brand party: South Park Studios

About the Game: South Park slot is Net Entertainment's first branded slot that was not a result of its licensing deal with Universal Studios. This time around, NetEnt turned to South Park Studios, creators of what can easily be considered the best animated television series in US media history. South Park, dreamed up by Trey Parker and Matt Stone for Comedy Central, has won multiple industry awards and is one of the most all-time popular shows on  TV.

Net Entertainment tapped into the huge almost-cult following enjoyed by the South Park brand and released this slot game in September 2013, after unveiling it at the ICE Totally Gaming Conference earlier on in the year.

The five reel, 3 row, 25 line South Park branded satirical slot follows the adventures of Cartman, Kyle, Kenny and Stan, and their lives in the Colorado town of South Park.

The game incorporates animations and sound features from the original TV show and brings players a brand that is recognizable and definitely well-loved.

The bonus game feature includes a four-in-one gaming adventure:

  • Cartman - invites players to hunt hippies to win prizes
  • Stan - win sticky wilds and lots of re-spins
  • Kenny - collect coins with Kenny to multiply your wins by up to ten times
  • Kyle - win 10 free bonus spins and the Ike Wild

If these weren't enough to keep players satisfied, the three mini-features in South Park slot add wild symbols to the reels for even more winning potential.

Creature From the Black Lagoon Slot

Released: December, 2013

Brand party: Universal Studios

About the Game: Following on the success of its previous two movie branded slots released with Universal Studios, Net Entertainment picked another classic, Creature of the Black Lagoon and launched a 5 reel, 20 line slot game at the end of December 2013.

The slot game carries the same storyline of the half-human, half-fish creature who captures the female protagonist Kay. Players are tasked with saving Kay before she slips to the creature's underwater hideout, making this a highly adventurous game.

Players can maximize their wins with plenty of bonus features, including wild substitutions, spreading wilds, sticky wilds, free spins and re-spins.  During the free spins feature, players will find the Creature who makes an appearance for the first time and who has the potential to award free games.  Rescue Kay when the target symbol and Creature appear on the reels, which is when the Creature is finally beaten.  The more target symbols collected by the player, the worse the Creature feels and the higher the rewards.  Up to 10 free spins can be claimed in this classic game.

Net Entertainment has called Creature from the Black Lagoon slot "the perfect mix of win anticipation and clever features that are woven around a classic story against the backdrop of the misty Amazon."
