NetEnt

Some things are not open to interpretation. Leo Messi is the best footballer in the world, The Beatles are the greatest music group ever and pineapple on pizza is just plain wrong. Something else that is not open to interpretation is the fact that NetEnt makes the best online slots in the wagering universe.

They are also almost completely ubiquitous when it comes to online casino sites. If you chance upon any online wagering den, it’s almost a given that they will have NetEnt slots. It’s also a given that they will have NetEnt’s casino games too, and perhaps even NetEnt’s live casino games.

NetEnt are probably the most successful company in the history of online casino, slots and bingo sites. They’ve achieved that lofty position by making many classic titles, and by supplying a continual stream of fantastic slots and games. Read on to learn more about the extremely successful world of NetEnt slots.

Who Is NetEnt?

Despite its grip on the online wagering world NetEnt can (kind of) trace its roots all the way back to 1963! The seeds of the company were sown way back then, but it wasn’t until 1972 that the business chose its most-recognised name of Cherry. Cherry began to make huge strides in the real-world slot machines market in Sweden, Europe and beyond.

In 1996 there were various splits and initiatives that led to the creation of a subsidiary called Net Entertainment. This company concentrated on online slots and games, and became more successful than its parent company. In 2007 Net Entertainment (now known as NetEnt for short) spun off from Cherry completely.

In 2010 NetEnt really hit the big time when it released ‘Gonzo’s Quest’. The wagering world had never seen anything like this game with its high-quality graphics and amazing gameplay. To prove that this wasn’t a one-off, NetEnt followed this up with Starburst in 2012. This dazzling game soon became a hot favourite with online casinos and players alike!

Over the next decade NetEnt went from strength to strength. They released excellent game after excellent game, and expanded their range of casino games too. They’ve also become one of the few online casino software companies to develop a range of live casino games. In 2015 they also officially become ‘NetEnt’ as opposed to ‘Net Entertainment’.

What’s Hot and Not About NetEnt

The best/most popular NetEnt games: Starburst, Gonzo’s Quest, Dazzle Me, Piggy Riches, Pyramid: The Quest for Immortality, Flowers, Neon Staxx, Jimi Hendrix, The Invisible Man, Secrets of Christmas.

Pros:

  • NetEnt games are the best! People might argue that Microgaming, Yggdrasil, Play’n Go or Red Tiger have made better games of late, but not one of them can match NetEnt’s ongoing portfolio of classic titles. The online wagering realm waits with bated breath at the prospect of the latest NetEnt release, and they are seldom disappointed.
  • High RTPs. RTP means ‘return-to-player’, which is the expected percentage of money spent on a slot returned to the player over a prolonged playing session. So, if a slot has an RTP of 98 percent and you spend £10 playing it, over the long run you will get back, on average, £9.80. This seldom happens but it’s a way of measuring how generous an online slot game is likely to be. You will lose in the long term, but you can get ‘lucky’ if you happen to experience a big win. NetEnt slots are associated with high RTPs. For example, Starburst has an RTP of 96.1%, Gonzo’s Quest 96.0% and Twin $pin 96.6%.
  • Bonus offers. Lots of online casinos and slots sites use NetEnt games for their bonus offers, with Starburst being particularly popular. If you like NetEnt games (and who doesn’t?) and bonus offers, then you should be able to very comfortably marry the two with a tasty bonus offer, especially at new or ‘new to you’ online casinos. Make sure you check and understand the T&Cs first, though.

Cons:

  • Er …

Our Final Thoughts

Where would the online wagering world be without NetEnt slots and NetEnt games? NetEnt have long proven themselves to be the industry leader when it comes to slots, with so many classic games. Even if you limited yourself to only playing online slots made by NetEnt, you would never, ever grow bored or be anything less than entertained.

To put it simply, NetEnt does not release a slot that’s less than exceptional. The graphics and sound effects are always spot on, the gameplay is good and RTPs are decent enough. NetEnt is a company that really does know what it is doing at all times.

NetEnt games are so good you could find yourself playing them for hours, so be careful about bankroll management and as ever, never gamble with money that you cannot afford to lose.
