Top casino and sportsbook brand Bethard has launched a custom-built virtual casino with help from NetEnt.
The successful betting brand, co-owned by football legend Zlatan Ibrahimovic, is the latest casino to launch an exclusive virtual casino.
In the virtual space, designed by NetEnt, players can move seamlessly between three eye-catching external environments (underwater, volcano and space), which are affected by the action on the blackjack and roulette tables.
There is also an innovative sports roulette table, which shows players live football results while they play.
We’re expecting lots of NetEnt virtual casinos – known as Next Level Live casinos – to pop up over the next year – so, what exactly are they?
The computer-generated casinos are born out of collaborative productions between NetEnt and casinos, allowing brands to fully leverage their identity.
The custom-built live casinos display a virtual world that features multiple game tables. The design of each casino is unique to the operator running it, but all work similarly.
Players enjoy a superior UX thanks to a multitude of camera positions that also provide visibility of the other tables.
The virtual casinos make it easy for players to change games and tables, without having to return to the lobby.
Henrik Fagerlund, Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, said: “Bethard is a super-ambitious brand with aggressive growth plans to match. With Next Level Live, we have jointly created a unique live casino experience that perfectly fits their personality and is guaranteed to boost engagement.”
Bjørnar Heggernes, Casino Manager at Bethard, said. “Next Level Live allows us to have an unprecedented level of product ownership and control and the result is a live casino which is 100 percent Bethard. This authenticity means that players are getting the true and irreplaceable Bethard experience – we are sure our players will love it.”
Bethard joins Mr Green, Unibet and Ninja Casino as operators with an exclusive virtual casino from NetEnt.
