Net Entertainment was established in 1996 by one of the biggest land-based casinos operators in Scandinavia. This operator wanted to develop its own online casino, but felt the casino software available at that moment didn’t meet their high standards of quality. The company therefore decided to develop its own casino software which activity eventually lead to the creation of the company Net Entertainment AB (nowadays NetEnt AB).
At this moment NetEnt software is considered to be the best on the casino gaming market, powering a wide variety of different gaming categories under which NetEnt casino table games (blackjack, roulette, poker and other card games), video poker games, online scratch cards, classic slots and of course (a huge amount of) the highly popular NetEnt video slots.
NetEnt games are very challenging for the player (with all sorts of ‘special game features’ like bonus games, jackpots and Free Spins modes) and beautifully designed (often with help of the latest technology in developing graphics and 3D animations). Aside from the underlying software being absolutely secure and ‘tamper-proof’ (guaranteeing the specific game’s fixed and unchangeable ‘Return To Player’ percentage) the NetEnt software also provides for seamless, flawless and therefore very ‘stable’ game play.
The software on which most of the current available NetEnt games are based is Flash technology. This means that when you play NetEnt games at an online casino, you do not have to download special casino software to your computer as was the case in most of the earliest ‘internet casinos’. You can begin playing NetEnt games immediately just by visiting an online casino and opening a game that subsequently will load in your browser by the Adobe Flash Player plug-in. So to play the NetEnt ‘Flash casino games’ online you only have to have a decent internet connection and a browser with the Flash Player plug-in installed.
Although the Flash casino games already were a huge improvement compared to the online casinos with games for which the download of a special program was needed, also games based on Flash technology have their ‘issues’. After all, still ‘third party’ software needs to be installed on the PC or laptop (the Flash Player plug-in) to have the games ‘running’ correctly. Besides this Flash technology has considerable limits when it comes to both game development as well as the game’s eventual performance and compatibility with the wide range of ‘devices’ and browsers nowadays available. For example, Flash casino games cannot be played on any iOS operated device simply because iOS doesn’t accept the Flash Player plug-in to be installed.
The logical ‘next step’ in game development was to use the nowadays widely accepted HTML5 technology which not only allows the developers of the games to fully explore ‘the boundaries of gaming innovation’ but also makes the games compatible with (and thus playable on) virtually any device operated by any operating system using virtually any browser. And not less logical is the fact that the first NetEnt games based on HTML5 were their mobile playable NetEnt Touch games, consequently compatible with mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) running on iOS, Android and even Windows platforms.
In December of 2014 the first NetEnt ‘desktop game’ in HTML5 was released (video slot The Invisible Man) and starting from video slot Stickers (that was released in May 2015) all new NetEnt video slots released are based on the HTML5 technology (and thus playable on both desktop as well as mobile devices).
One of the reasons why Net Entertainment casino software is so popular amongst players is the fact that the company expands its offer in games on a monthly basis. Often these are video slots because this genre is very popular on the internet at the moment. NetEnt also really wants to be innovative, which can be derived from the new features and bonus games which are implemented in the new games. Another innovation of Net Entertainment is the earlier mentioned line of NetEnt Touch games that can be played on iPad, iPhone and other mobile devices.
Last but not least NetEnt has developed its own ‘NetEnt Live Casino’ software by which players can play ‘classic’ casino table games (roulette or blackjack) hosted by real-life croupiers and dealers (shown via a live streaming video connection).
The NetEnt casino software is the fairest on the internet. The payout percentages are very high (96% – 98.5%), certainly when compared to other online casino software. When the software is developed and the payout percentage is determined, the software is presented to the MGA (inspection body in Malta, European Member State) which will test the software on aspects like stability and payout percentages. When the software is approved, which thus is a guarantee for the player that the software is fair and reliable, the software is placed and sealed on a MGA server. From that moment on, the software is accessible for both Net Entertainment and the online casinos that make use of the NetEnt software.
On this website we have displayed all Net Entertainment games, and we try to keep this up to date on a monthly basis. The casino software and games can be divided in a number of components. Below you will find an overview of the types of casino games that are offered by Netent:

Because of the many extra features and bonus games, these games are currently extremely popular in every online casino. Net Entertainment has a wide range of Video Slots.
Slots refer to the classic slot machines like the armed bandit and the slot machine from the bar. The range of this component is not very large at Net Entertainment, but the offer is very good and popular; partly because some classic slots are combined with a jackpot, which makes winning a big prize a realistic probability.
