Founded barely twenty years ago in 1996, NetEnt is now one of the world’s biggest names when it comes to online gaming. Many of the top games on any of the major casino sites are likely to have been created by this company’s software designers. Top titles include Gonzo’s Quest, Jack and the Beanstalk and Spinata Grande. NetEnt also runs its own casinos and designs management software for other operators too.
The history of the company shows rapid development. It is truly one of the pioneers of digital gaming. The early days saw an impressive track record of games design and development. Indeed, it took only six years for the company to launch its first online casino, in 2002. But, never content to stand still in this fast moving industry, it has always been at the forefront of technological developments. Its first mobile compatible game was released in 2011, long before the current pre-eminence of on the go play was first imagined. Now, far more games are played on mobile devices than are on traditional PCs and Macs. And for that extra dose of real life realism, 2013 saw NetEnt develop its first live casino – now a main attraction on most online casino sites.
Today, millions of players all over the world play NetEnt games, and indeed it is the company’s vast and varied roster of innovative games which are the main interest. Their vast range of designs covers just about every genre you can think of. From traditional fruity favourites such as Starburst and Fruit Shop through to modernist designs like Drive and Neon Staxx, these designers really do create something for everyone. A particular strength is their work with the top film and TV franchises. Their branded games feature brilliantly conceived slot conversions from movies like Aliens, Dracula and the Invisible Man, plus the anarchic TV series South Park. Official Music themed slots are also a strength: fans of Guns ‘n’ Roses, Motorhead and Jimi Hendrix will love their slot homages, which all feature the artists’ greatest songs and some superb graphics.
The traditional side of digital gaming is well looked after too, with some superb table games like Roulette, Poker and Blackjack all provided. Live gaming is also a strength, with many sites using NetEnt designs.
All the games play beautifully on any kind of device. The majority of online gaming is done on smartphones and tablets these days, so NetEnt games are developed using the very latest HTML5 technology. This means that they are all compatible with the latest mobile devices, so can be played at any mobile casino site, played at home or on the go with the same excellent graphics. Players using larger screen also benefit from the superb graphics, with some of the soundtracks particularly benefitting from being played through a decent sound system rather than from the basic speakers of a mobile phone. Lemmy and Slash certainly sound a bit meatier through a sound bar than through a Samsung!
So with over 200 games in their extensive games range and hundreds of casinos providing at least some NetEnt titles, you are sure to find this some of this company’s games amongst your personal favourites. They really are one of the biggest names around.
