2014 was an amazing year for us here at NetentCasino.com as we went through many changes and a lot of growth. We hope you have enjoyed coming along on this ride with us and continue to follow us as we journey into 2015, bringing you all the latest and greatest in the Netent world.
A Whole New Look
The biggest part of 2014 for us was the new website. Most of you will have noticed that the background changed from black to white, making everything so much brighter and easier to read, but there are so many more changes that perhaps you missed a few.
– What’s on Offer
We wanted to make the website easier to understand on first glance, so for people coming to us for the first time we added some clear and concise info at the top of the page showing what we do and who we are. It shows how many casino reviews we have on site, how many bonus codes available for you to use, it shows that you can play games for free on our site, plus see how many news articles are just waiting to be read!
Each link is clickable so if you’re here looking for a new casino to try out, you can click on our casino review figure, or perhaps you want to see which gives the best bonus, just click the bonus code button.
You’ll notice there are a number of tabs along the top of the screen, but did you know that these have been tailored to what you want? We record, check and analyse everything that happens on our site and we wanted to give prominence to those areas that readers are reading more and looking for. There, you’ll find a quick link to our news articles, a link to our full casino listing, games, different software that Netent offers, as well as quick links to jackpot information, bonuses, licenses and payment methods.
– – Licensing
Within each tab is more information than you could ever comprehend and we spent a lot of time expanding the content in 2014. You’ll find information on loads of different licensing bodies. These are so important as it’s a legal requirement by the EU that all online casinos have a license and different countries have different rules so here, you can find out exactly what it all means and why a license is so important.
– – Payments
Getting money in and out of a casino is really one of the most important factors- you need to know they offer a method you’re familiar with and trust and that money will get where it needs to be quickly and in a cost effective manner. For details of many different payment methods, check out payments page, which lists big and small methods plus tells you which Netent casinos each deposit option can be found at.
We added some cool new widgets to the left hand side of the page, including a countdown to the next new Netent game release, plus up to the minute jackpot totals for Mega Fortune, Mega Fortune Dreams, Arabian Nights and Hall of Gods. We chose these ones as they are ‘pooled’ jackpots meaning there is one jackpot prize that all casinos feed into and the jackpot is the same everywhere. They’re also really, really big jackpots, we’re talking MULTI MILLIONS!
The news section is the most solid part of the site and the format for this rarely changes. We work hard to ensure we bring you news every single day; news that you’ll find interesting, useful and fun to read. This could be new bonuses available at various Netent casinos, news or gossip from the casino world, player reviews for games, casinos and payment methods and much more.
We like to keep this section organised so you’ll see that everything is categorised. You can either scroll through the news section at your leisure and see what pops out at you, or if you’re interested in something specific, choose a category;
- Net Entertainment– updates and news from Netent themselves. Changes, announcements that kind of thing.
- New Netent Games– exactly as it sounds, if a new game is coming up we’ll post footage, images and details as well as launch promotions and our reviews!
- Live Casino– if anything happens in Live Casino, you’ll read about it here!
- Netent Touch– we frequently play the games ourselves, as players and we like to write about what we think. I’m always playing Netent Touch games on my phone so I take a screenshot and tell you about my experience. We’ll also update you if new games are added to the Touch portfolio,
- Gaming News– this covers anything going on in the casino world. Has a CEO been sacked? Has a Netent casino won an award? If so, you’ll find out about it here!
- Casino Reviews– every time we add a new casino to our listing, we’ll give you a short introduction, which you’ll find here. Also, sometimes we’ll sign up to a casino and document the process; how easy it was, what was good, what needs improving and we’ll tell you all about it in this section.
- Game Reviews– we’re firm Netent lovers here and are always playing their games. We think that makes us the perfect people to review each game, because we’re fans but we’re also unbiased and honest.
Then, for bonus and promotion lovers, we have categories; Free Spins, No Deposit Bonus and the best, Exclusive Promotions (these are available ONLY for our readers!).
As well as improving the website look and feel to give you, the readers, a better experience, we also carried on finding new casinos offering Netent games and adding them to our listings. Did you know that our listings are FILLED with fascinating and vitally important information on each Netent casino? The listings are the holy grail when it comes to finding the next Netent casino to try out.
In the green bar you’ll find an introduction to the casino with basic information like who they are and a brief description of what they offer. Then below you’ll find all the good stuff such as our star rating, which is based on a number of set factors and is totally impartial, then a player rating, which is calculated based on what you think!
We have some great sections such as “Rate this Casino” where you give the casino your own star rating and add comments about your experience. You can also ‘File a Casino Complaint’ if you want us to get involved in a dispute.
Along the left hand side we have some super cute and clear banners showing you what welcome bonuses are on offer at this casino.
The middle section is dedicated to things like the website link, the year they were founded, languages, customer support details, currencies, restrictions and who exactly they’re licensed by. You’ll also find information on which Netent games and payment methods the casino offers.
We added so many new casinos this year that our listings are growing and growing, making them the best place to help you decide which casino is the one for you.
Then, in December, all our hard work really payed off when we were not just nominated for ‘Best Casino Affiliate’ in the IGB Awards, we were shortlisted! The winner isn’t announced until later on in 2015, but just being voted for by our readers and making the shortlist was a huge achievement for us and something we are so thankful for. Whether we win or not, and there is some stiff competition, we are happy to have been recognised this far and believe it’s made all our hand work worth it already!
It has been a pleasure writing for you all in 2014 and I hope you’ll come back plenty of times in 2015. Keep in touch with us and up to date on everything we’re doing by finding us on social media- all our links can be found on our contact page. We can’t wait to hear from you!
