Most commonly known by their nickname, NetEnt, Net Entertainment was founded in 1996 in Sweden and is one of the oldest firms providing online casino games. However, the company did not launch its first site until the online gaming business was well established and in the year 2000 with its first release, the company's future took a significant spin.
In the year 2002, NetEnt began providing sports betting, created the Casino Module and a game library system. Other gambling websites accessed NetEnt's game portfolio and operated the company's games and customer's interface. Later on, the company specialized only in designing gambling software and sold their casino websites.
Net Entertainment designs its own software which is provided to over five dozen Internet gambling operators in many different languages including Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, German, Dutch, Polish, Czech, French, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Finnish, Turkish, Greek, Russian, Hebrew, Estonian, Croatian, Hungarian, Romanian, Bulgarian and of course English. Most NetEnt software reviews all agree that NetEnt offers very easy to use features including its account management software where customers can take a look at their performance through simple graphics, tools and instructions. Downloading isn't necessary in order to enjoy NetEnt's games as they are built using Java and are available on Mac, PC and on both Android and iOS devices.
NetEnt has made a reputation for itself by offering great themed games which use top of the line software and offer rich graphics, smooth animations and crisp sound effects. They pretty much revolutionized the gaming market with their vibrant animated slot games and they are famous for their online casino tournaments dishing out generous prizes every week.
Speaking of generous prizes, NetEnt is one of the companies in the online casino market that has the highest jackpots on offer and which has paid out huge prizes over the course of the years. Mega Fortune Jackpot alone has already paid out many multi-million jackpots since its launch and is (at the time of writing) the biggest online slot jackpot paid out: a massive €17,860,868. There are other huge jackpots on offer as well such as Hall of the Gods (which paid out over €7 million twice already) and Arabian Nights (which has paid out a €8 million jackpot so far).
In 2011 and in response to the mobile gaming innovation, NetEnt launched its own mobile program, "Touch", available to the Apple's iOS mobile platform and Google Android. Games such as Gonzo's Quest, Subtopia, Frankenstein and Jackhammer 2 are some of the games available in this mobile collection all easy to navigate and to use as a full-screen text mode. All Touch games share the same high quality graphics, animations and sound effects as their java/online counterparts. They also offer the same payout percentages and bonus offers. In fact they are pretty much exact same replicas of the same games offered online except these ones are available on Android and iOS devices exclusively. To access any of the games available on Touch, players can either open the games from their hand-held devices or they can sign up via a computer and log on to tthe account using the mobile device.
In order to keep their customer data base growing, NetEnt focuses in offering players a wide range of new games but also variations of the classic games. For instance, NetEnt's video poker variations narrows down to the following titles: Deuces Wild, Pokers Wild, All American, Jokers Wild. It might be a short list for video poker players but slot players have at least fifty-odd games to try out all of which have been created out of research and market analysis of real online casino gaming adding extra details and emotions to the games. Also, every slot game has its particular themes, features and bonuses. It's impossible to get bored and all of the slot games have high payout percentages ranging anywhere from 95 percent to 98 percent.
NetEnt's secret to success also lies in their game licenses which allows them to create and market games based on movies and TV shows like Scarface, South Park or Frankenstein. This has made the company extremely popular since most film and TV aficionados will also expect the release of their favourite movie or charcter in the form of a slot game by NetEnt. This also provides the company a virtualy unlimited resource of ideas and themes for their upcoming game designs.
To date, the company's game library is made up of over 100 games, half of which are slots but players can also enjoy playing scratch cards, keno, Blackjack, lottery cards, virtual horse racing and much more. Also, any gambling site under the NetEnt license can decide if they want to include their customers in the network's generous tournament schedules.
Security & Fairness
Net Entertainment holds licenses from both the Alderney Gambling Control Comission and the Lotteries and Gaming Authority of Malta. The LGA has the final approval on any new games or software created by the firm as part of their agreement. Additionally, two third party companies, eCOGRA and TST, test the new software monthly in order to guarantee the fairness of its random number generator.
