Net Entertainment, short most commonly called NetEnt, is one of the best known online casino software providers around. They have an impressive portfolio of games, some of the biggest progressive jackpots in the industry, continue to receive prestigious awards and operate almost everywhere in the world now. Learn all about them here.
NetEnt was first established in 1996. The company was founded by Pontus Lindwall, who convinced Cherry, already a leading casino game company in Scandinavia, as well as Kinnevik, an investment company, to finance the new company.
And soon NetEnt became one of the leading software providers for the first online casinos. Innovative and offering payouts between 95 and 98% on their games, NetEnt became a customer favourite.
In 2002 the first NetEnt casinos were launched, though NetEnt does not run the casinos themselves, instead they provide all required software.
Continuing on their success, the company expanded into Europe and later into other markets outside Europe. Since 2009 they’ve been listed on the Nasdaq OMX and in 2011 they launched their first mobile game with NetEnt Touch technology.
The company decided to expand its product offering and ventured into the live casino industry in 2013. In 2015, then, they entered the US market, which was indeed a milestone.
How about some numbers about NetEnt?
- As of 2014 the company has handled 21.4 billion gaming transactions
- Their portfolio offers over 200 games now – new games are released monthly
- NetEnt cooperates with over 170 online casinos worldwide
- More than 1,000 people are gainfully employed by NetEnt in various locations
Since we’re talking about a casino game developer, let’s talk a little bit about their games. As we’ve already established, currently NetEnt offers about 200 games. The majority of those games are slots, of course. And their number is only going to rise, because NetEnt releases a new slot at least once a month. The NetEnt game list is full of well-known titles such as Starburst, Gonzo’s Quest, Tornado: Farm Escape, Guns n’ Roses, SteamTower or Pyramid: Quest for Immortality, Twin Spin and Fruit Shop.
Some of NetEnt’s games have become classics and you’ll find many casino promotions featuring those same games. The consistent good quality, innovative game play, often fantastic graphics and sound and even a good dose of humour in some of them make NetEnt games favourites with many players.
Apart from so many well-known slot games, NetEnt also offers a decent number of casino table games such as roulette, baccarat, blackjack, red dog or casino poker. Additionally you can find video poker games, keno and scratch cards.
New NetEnt games are released regularly, and usually we will aim to keep you updated in our news section. That’s not overly difficult, because almost all new NetEnt releases are accompanied by at least one if not more promotions hosted by several online casinos.
NetEnt is well known for its progressive jackpot games as well. In particular Mega Fortune has been record breaker over the years and received a Guinness World Records entry when the slot paid out €17.86 million. That record has now been broken, but only just. Still, the slot also holds the record for highest mobile win, which stands at €8.6 million in 2015.
Mega Fortune is still the most popular and frequently won progressive jackpot in NetEnt’s portfolio, but it has good company in a few other jackpots:
All these make it regularly above €1 million and can change lives instantly. But there are a few smaller jackpots as well, most of which are not linked across the network, but only receive contributions from players at individual casinos. Among them you’ll find well-known titles such as:
- Cosmic Fortune
- Super Lucky Frog
- Divine Fortune
- Tiki Wonders, Geisha Wonders and Icy Wonders
- Mega Joker
Additionally you’ll get a keno jackpot as well as a Caribbean Stud Poker jackpot game from NetEnt.
As we’ve already mentioned, NetEnt entered the live casino market in 2013. The company offers plenty of roulette, baccarat and blackjack tables, some of which are modelled on their slots, which is a nice touch for slot players. The live casino studio is located in Malta and uses the Chroma Key Technology, which allows casinos to customise the experience according to their brands.
NetEnt is very successful with its live tables and you can often find them alongside other providers at Live Casinos, giving you the choice among several of the best developers.
The very first NetEnt mobile games were launched in 2011. With an emerging mobile market, NetEnt recognised the need to adapt its game for mobile use and mobile casinos and thus developed NetEnt Touch.
In the beginning the developer adapted some of existing classics for the small screen, among which you would mostly find slots. The offerings for casino games was still pretty slim then, but it has much improved since.
Nowadays every newly released game is automatically also available as a NetEnt Touch version as well. Obviously there are still some older games that are not available as mobile version, but those games are hardly played anymore anyway, so there is no pressing need to make a Touch version.
Of course, NetEnt Touch games are available on iOS as well as Android devices. Whilst the mechanics are somewhat reduced for mobile use, all games have the same features as their desktop versions, so you’re never missing out on the experience. Sometimes mobile play is much more fun, to be honest, as the gameplay tends to be more intuitive and less cluttered.
Free spins, bonuses and promotions
NetEnt games are favourites in many online casinos when it comes to free spin offers, bonuses and promotions. In fact, for quite a long time Starburst has been the go-to slot for free spin or welcome spin offers in many casinos. It’s one of those classics that players simply don’t get bored with and even now you’ll find plenty of Starburst offers in online casinos.
But as the NetEnt game list grows, so do available offers for those games. Some online casinos regularly change their free spin offers to promote the latest NetEnt release. And many bonuses include NetEnt games as well, sometimes not reduced to slots, but also extending to live roulette or blackjack. Online casinos such as Leo Vegas or Mr. Green are particularly fond of such bonuses and promotions.
Additionally NetEnt runs its own network promotions across many of the casinos that feature NetEnt games. That means when you participate in such a promotion, you’ll be competing for prizes not just at one casino but many. Prizes are then not handed out by the casino you’re playing at, but they come directly from Net Entertainment.
Oftentimes you’ll get cash prizes, but gadgets, vacations and even cars can be up for grabs as well. Whenever we know of such a promotion, you can read up on them in our news section.
What follows is a list of all our featured online casinos that are also NetEnt casinos. This includes new NetEnt casinos as well, as we constantly aim to review new casinos for you. In our reviews we’ll make sure to let you know which software providers are available at a casino, which often includes NetEnt, but as you can see, not always.
We give all our casinos ratings, so you have an indication which ones we consider the best among them. Suffice to say that we’re usually quite happy with the quality provided anyway, but there are always slight differences.
