NetEnt casinos aka Net Entertainment, opened its door in 1996, hosting a small group of online slots for Scandinavian players from its home base in Sweden and Malta. The company develops and provides flash based casino software products for PC’s and hand held devices, which means there is nothing to install or to download. The creation of this type of software is considered to be one of the biggest innovations the online gambling industry has ever seen. It has subsequently led to NetEnt being voted as one of the top 20 software providers in 2006, and rapidly escalating its fan-base around the globe, including Canada. NetEnt's rising success was further echoed at the 2013 EGR B2G Awards, when the company walked off with a triple score of honors comprising innovation in slot provision, innovation in mobile, and mobile supplier of the year. Casinos like Mr Green, BGO, Betsson and Casino Room are all being backed by NetEnt and the games are well known for outstanding delivery.
As a matter of interest, Net Entertainment does not permit players from the US.
On every NetEnt online casino site you will find in the region of 150 free and real money slots, and new titles are being added to that list all the time. All games operate in the trademark flash version which is fully compatible with PC’s as well as mobile iOS and Android devices. Players looking for high quality game play will not be disappointed as the sound, animations and graphics are magnificent and the attention to detail easily compares to the likes produced by Microgaming. Popular slots include Jack’s Hammer, Starburst and Jackpot 6000, along with 3D slots Jack and the Beanstalk and Gonzo’s quest. NetEnt also sports some pretty impressive progressive slots such as Hall of Gods and Mega Fortunes that regularly pays out in the millions. Table and tourney fans are not left in the cold as NetEnt offers some of the best slots tournaments around, and table games like blackjack and roulette can be enjoyed in real time via live dealer casinos.
NetEnt’s mobile offering launched in 2011, is aptly called NetEnt Touch. As the aforementioned awards suggest, it is particularly on this platform that NetEnt launched itself to be in serious competition with Microgaming and Playtech. Games are beautifully crafted and the no-download software complies with all android and iOS devices. This spells good news for casino vendors and punters alike looking for harmonious integration on both desktop and mobile platforms without the need to create a different account to log in. There are currently close to 100 games supported through NetEnt mobile casinos, including slots, blackjack, baccarat, roulette, craps, keno, poker and much more. A mentionable downside is that NetEnt has no dedicated mobile app so play is restricted to browser play only.
Anyone who signs up at a NetEnt Casino is in for a number of great bonuses and promotions, including the much coveted no-deposit bonus which usually ranges between $5 and $15. These treats are a great way to boost your bankroll and extend your playing time. New customers are especially rewarded with welcome bonuses (ranging between 100% and 200%), free spins and other usual gifts that could carry bonus codes to redeem. Players need to take note that without exception, bonuses have T&Cs along with wagering requirements attached to them. These terms are always very clearly outlined in simple terms on the website.
NetEnt supports 25 different currencies to allow maximum banking convenience. There are also operators standing by via email, phone and live chat to assist customers in any one of 22 different languages around-the-clock. VISA and MasterCard are the most common options used when making deposits or withdrawals, although some e-wallets like Neteller, PayPal and Click2Pay are also accepted. Canadian-favorite InstaDebit unfortunately is not. As far as payouts go, NetEnt boasts some of the best odds on the web with an average payout of 95%-97%.
As a MGA (Malta Gaming Authority) licenced company, NetEnt takes security and fair play very seriously. All NetEnt games are subject to LGA approval and regular RNG (Random Number Generator) testing to guarantee fair gaming practices are adhered to. Customer data is kept safe via encryption methods using the latest technology available.
