Introduction to NetEnt
NetEnt was established in the very beginning of the online casino age in 1996. Since then, NetEnt has grown together with the industry to become one of the most important games developers, serving the world’s best online casinos with equally impressive games. NetEnt’s games, be they Online Slots, Blackjack, Roulette or Poker, impress the user with crisp and elegant visuals, immersive soundtracks, user-friendly player interfaces and hassle-free gameplay.
Even before NetEnt was officially formed, it had established roots in the world of gaming and was emerging as a successful player in the market. The company’s forefathers devised a gaming business back in the 60s, which would eventually evolve to become Cherry – one of the world’s first online casinos. One of the sons of the original founder would then establish NetEnt. Today, NetEnt is listed on the stock exchange in Sweden and produces games with some of the largest online progressive jackpots in the world, and have established a significant online and mobile platform following.
Now in 2018, NetEnt is THE industry leader in the emerging trend for mobile gaming, Despite the successes, NetEnt have no intention of sitting on its laurels and continues to make constant advancements through industry wide mobile first innovations, such as its December 2017 industry leading release of the world’s original mobile first Blackjack game.
Cutting Edge HTML Game Technology
In the beginning, NetEnt provided their games in download versions only. To access NetEnt’s games, online players had no other choice but to download and install software in order to play online casino games.
Fortunately, by 2018, most online players have access to high-speed internet connections and can conveniently play games directly in their web browsers.
If you have an average broadband speed or better, NetEnt games are available to play directly online in HTML5 format without any need to download any software.
Mobile Game Technology
Through NetEnt Touch technology, equivalent game rules, identical game play and payout percentages and high-quality HD and 3D graphics and animations are available on mobile devices. As the Touch name implies, games can be played smoothly with the touch screen of your device.
As Online Casino Smartphone use now comprises approximately 46% of the Canadian online casino market, NetEnt has become THE industry leader in the development of mobile platforms for gaming. All new release NetEnt games are designed for mobile play, and are fully-compatible with Apple iOS and all Android operating systems for smartphone and tablet use.
NetEnt have developed an innovative multiplayer platform that allows players to log in to a common casino lounge area, upload avatars of themselves and chat with the other players playing the same game. These multiplayer game lounges can take on exciting dimensions when the games are hosted as part of an online casino tournament.
Live Dealer Casinos
NetEnt offer interactive Live Dealer Casino Games that provide the authentic and exciting Las Vegas Strip, Atlantic City or Macau atmosphere. As a bonus, you will discover a number of multiplayer poker games in the NetEnt portfolio.
NetEnt Online Slots
The majority of NetEnt Touch casino games are online video slots. The ‘flagship’ NetEnt online slots are all available to be played on your favourite mobile devices, including NetEnt’s ‘all-time greatest slots hits’ like Scarface, Frankenstein, Hall of Gods, South Park and Mega Fortune
NetEnt Progressive Online Slots
NetEnt has several NetEnt Touch progressive jackpot ‘millionaire-maker’ slots in its game line-up including;
Mega Fortune Touch: Mega Fortune Touch is the mobile edition of the famous record-holding progressive online slot, Mega Fortune. Featuring a return-to-player percentage of 96.4%, Mega Fortune Touch holds NetEnt’s biggest ever payout record of CAD $30.7 million in January 2013.

NetEnt Sports Betting
NetEnt’s Sportsbook technology features include exciting daily, weekly and monthly promotions, a customised client format, cash out options, in play betting notifications, head-to-head player stats, and real-time odds and scores.
888 Casino Online Casino is the major sportsbook that utilises the NetEnt technology. 888 Casino take great pride in providing NetEnt’s leading casino games as well as supplying a world-class sportsbook for their clientele, offering fantastic sports betting options on a range of sports worldwide.

NetEnt’s portfolio of games offer a sophisticated, and elegantly crafted player experience. Standout features include flawless animations and graphics and chances to win life altering progressive jackpots.
NetEnt don’t offer the thousands of games as some software do. In a ‘quality over quantity’ philosophy, the 200+ games that NetEnt offer, are amongst the best in the industry.
My favourite feature of NetEnt games is that they usuallly promote ‘free play’ side by side with the ‘play for money’ version, offering players the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the gameplay before playing for money.
