NetEnt, previously Net Entertainment, is a Swedish company that develops gaming solutions for the online casino world. The base is in Stockholm and the company started in 1996. The original idea was to meet the growing market for casino online, but in the end they chose to only focus on developing game software. With awards like Slot Provider of the Year, Innovation in Mobile and Mobile Supplier of the Year at the recent eGaming Review B2B Awards (EGR Awards) NetEnt has grown to become one of the best developers in the industry. Three years in a row the company has won the title Mobile Supplier of the Year at the gala. The game developer works by the idea that their customers will have unique premium products, which always should be a step ahead.

Innovative ideas

The core product is called CasinoModule. It is a complete gaming system comprising a large number of browser based games and an efficient administration. The games are tested and approved by Technical Systems Testing (TST) which ensures NetEnt that no cheating occurs on their products. The CasinoModule is updated every trimester which gives the casinos updated and new games a few times a year. They also offer other services such as marketing, support and technical service.

NetEnt has become well known for producing new games at a rapid pace, and for daring to test the limits. When they released the game Gonzo’s Quest it was a slot without spinning wheels, something that hadn’t been done before. It is NetEnt’s ambition to constantly deliver innovative ideas along with powerful graphics that makes the majority of all Nordic casinos use NetEnt as one of its suppliers of games.

Popular among casinos

Most of the major gaming companies that we have listed here at offer slot machines from NetEnt, for example, we find their games at Leo Vegas and Mr. Green. They work after a model where they deliver the CasinoModule in exchange for a commission, and an ongoing license that is based on the casinos result. Something that laid the foundation for NetEnt’s major success was their development of free spins. Free spins means that you get some extra spins on the slot for free and this concept was Netent the first developer to use, but it occurs today in most gaming sites.

They also has some of the top progressive jackpots. A progressive jackpot means that the jackpot start at a certain number and then grows and grows until a single winner takes home all of the money. The jackpot grows from players from all casino sites that offer that slot, which allows players from all the different casino sites to win the pot. What chance the player has to win is at least 95% of all games from the game developer, which contributes to a high percentage of players at their particular games.

NetEnt also has a huge focus on making all their games optimized for mobile devices. They are constantly thinking of the future and being innovative. Therefore, all slot machines from them can be played on both mobiles and desktops. On the computer, you can play in your browser, and by downloading the casino software. NetEnt’s focus is on the players’ needs and it helps that it is constantly new casinos that want to cooperate with them to attract new players. The latest development is their Live Casino. This means that the player sees a casino table live through a video link.

The player gets a chair and in front of the players is a dealer. Live casino has since its beginning in 2013 received much critical acclaim. The video quality along with the feeling of sitting at a real table, it is estimated most. The live casino is sent from NetEnt’s studio in Malta and the dealer usually has a long experience of casino games. You often have several language to choose from, so you can get a dealer that speaks your foreign language. Currently NetEnt offers Live Casino, Live Blackjack and Live Roulette, but given NetEnt’s ambitions to be the leading gaming provider they probably will continue to develop their portfolio and will certainly offer more live games in the future.
