NetEnt (a shortened version of Net Entertainment) is a Swedish software company, and leading supplier of top gaming solutions to online casino operators world-wide. Digital entertainment is their passion and they are particularly known for designing unique and cutting-edge games for both pc and mobile platforms.
Netent’s games offering spans across three trademarked departments;
Due to their software running from a separate server in Malta, NetEnt games cannot be tampered with and generally have a guaranteed high payout. Of the entire games suite, NetEnt’s video slots are the most popular, and widely regarded as classics amongst other offerings out there.
NetEnt’s roots trace back all the way to 1963 – an era of traditional casinos. They were then known as Cherry, one of Scandinavia’s leading off-line casino operators. Pontus Lindwall, son of original founder Bill Lindwall, founded Net Entertainment in 1996 when he realised that iGaming was the way of the future, and managed to convince one of the largest investment companies listed in Europe to invest with him. Net Entertainment played a pioneering role in the mid-nineties when online gaming broke the surface and the first online casino was launched in 2000. The name was later changed to NetEnt in 2015.
By 2007, NetEnt was licensed by the Maltese Gaming Authority (MGA), publicly listed on Nasdaq and actively expanding into other countries.
Today, NetEnt has developed over 200 top quality casino games, including their trademark Touch® mobile offering which was launched in 2016. They’ve gone from humble beginnings of 2- to 3500 servers, and employs 900 staff, while servicing around 175 casino operators with entire suit, or selected popular NetEnt games.
