NetEnt are in the business of making epic slots. And no one is more epic than the father of fantasy, Conan the Barbarian.
Another day, another big announcement by the software providers that do their best to make our slot play fun and diverse.
In the same week that we are told that the Ozzy Osbourne slot will be thing, NetEntertainment makes another big announcement, having secured the rights to the Conan brand.
What does that mean for us? What will the Conan the Barbarian slot look like? When is the release date? Here’s everything we know, which we will update as we know more.
Take a look for yourself. This is the one and the only video we have about this new 2019 slot machine.
It’s not much, is it? That’s because it’s not meant to be. At best this will be a Summer slot so we are still months away from seeing anything come to life.
What you get above is a general idea of the theme and the look they are going for, which is classic swords and sandals fantasy adventure.
From the epic music framing a red sky in a harsh desert light, you are then taken to the middle of a silent battlefield where only one man remains standing.

You don’t see the man, but you see his reflection on his bloody sword. Holding the decapitated head of his fallen enemy, the ground around him burns from the death and destruction he has brought upon the world.
One word: Epic.
What this YouTube video doesn’t have much of is any reference to what the casino phone game is going to be like, what the Conan slot features will be, or even reels and paylines.
It’s not ideal. And when NetEnt reveal more about this new slot game, you know we will be one of the first to publish more details, and certainly give you our opinion.
Everyone knows of Conan The Barbarian because of the famous 1982 film with Arnold Schwarzenegger. But what NetEnt have done is secured the whole brand.
Meaning, as you can see by the video, it has nothing to do with the original film or the re-released movie in 2011.
Instead, as they mentioned in their press release about Conan, they are concentrating on a character-driven slot game.
“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.” said Bryan Upton, Director of Games at NetEnt.
In short, they could pick any time, any place in Conan history. Better yet, if the first Conan video slot is a success, they can then go on and create multiple games.
The Sword of Conan? Conan The Conqueror? Conan the Destroyer? All valid options for the future. Or not, and they just create one slot to bring about his whole life, from wandering barbarian, to king of empires.
That’s the ultimate question which we can’t say for sure… yet.

When we wrote about the Ozzy Osbourne slot, we made a bet with ourselves the Ozzy would be the one that comes out first in the Summer. Meaning that Conan would be released in the late Autumn, maybe November.
But you know what? Having seen the video of this Conan mobile slot, we have to wonder if, maybe, we have it the wrong way around?
After all, we have nothing about the Ozzy game yet, but we have a video full of realised graphics – meaning they have a concept for the Conan slot machine.
The reason why it’s going to be one or the other is that that is when we’ve had most of the NetEnt branded slots over the years.
Usually, we get one sometime in May/June, and then another around October/November. The one exception was the year they released their Rock Music slots, as their Guns n Roses game came out in January (and the other two in the Summer and Autumn).
So, being creatures of habit, we are going to guess we have a while to go before we get the Conan game on our local mobile iPad casinos or even online.

But it’s nice to dream, and the moment we have more information (usually around a month or two before release) you know where you need to go to get more info.
There are so many fantastic games by this casino software provider, it’s hard for us to just pick a couple of favourites.
If you haven’t already, the aforementioned Jumanji and Vikings games are worth a spin.
However, if you want something non-branded but still fresh, their Halloween Jack slot is a favourite of ours at the moment, mostly because it’s a copy of another favourite Jack and the Beanstalk.
