Popular Viking T.v. Series The Theme For New Gambling Games

By Brian Cullingworth, Last updated Mar 3, 2017

Players will have free rein to explore and plunder in new land casino machines

Online slot fans will be hoping that a new game, based on the popular but bloodthirsty television series Vikings, will eventually come to their screens following the news this week that GameCo has partnered with MGM Interactive to develop a series of games featuring the legendary Ragnar Lodbrok and his fearsome sons.
The MGM Interactive licence includes a movie franchise, "Hang 'Em High" with a Wild West theme.
GameCo's VGM is an arcade-style video game cabinet that features a single-player game adapted from top console, PC and mobile developers. The player has a certain time limit, generally 45-90 seconds, to achieve a score and pay-out, which is shown on a pay table as the player progresses through the game.
The VGM made history when it became the first skill game in the world to hit casino floors. GameCo currently has 30 machines placed in high traffic, prominent locations at four properties in Atlantic City, including Caesars Atlantic City, Harrah's Resort Atlantic City, Bally's – Atlantic City and Tropicana Atlantic City Casino & Resort.
While playing "Vikings," players will be dropped into a metal-clanging, action-packed sword fighting game where players lead their Viking brethren into battle for plunder and glory.
The deal was brokered on behalf of GameCo by Richmond Management Group.
"We are excited work with MGM Interactive and add these two iconic titles to our collection of VGM games," said Rich Maryyanek, head of global business development at GameCo.
"Vikings' and 'Hang 'Em High' are known for their action sequences and will make a great addition to our collection of games."

Brian Cullingworth

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
