We have been reliably informed that as of 28th July, the following Netent slots will be removed from their system; network wide! This means that the games will be permanently removed from their platform and wont be available to play on any online casino. In fact, the play for fun demo versions on our site will most likely become unavailable to. Whilst this might seem like a sad occasion, it’s really Netent doing a little gardening. Preening, or deadheading, where you remove the dead rose heads in order for the rest of the plants looking gorgeous and to encourage new blooms to open.
Netent is constantly evaluating their own work and if something simply isn’t as popular as it once was, it’s time to move on and focus on the new. These old games had become outdated and savvy casino players had out grown them. Removing them from the network gives Netent the space and time to focus on ensuring your favourite slots continue to tick over nicely, whilst also creating even better new games every single month.
As well as these 16 losses, players in the UK, as of the 28th July will not be able to play the following games. I am not actually sure of the reasoning behind certain gams not being offered in certain jurisdictions but I’d bet my bottom dollar it’s something to do with the licensing. Perhaps only certain kinds of games can be permitted under the UK license, perhaps only a certain number of games, or perhaps Netent simply feel that whilst players in certain countries play these games enough to keep them going, they simply wont be so popular in the UK.
Netent, as a software developer, are fully licensed by the UK Gambling Commission, which means that any casino also holding a UK license is able to offer Netent games to the UK. The above games wont be available and the casino may choose to offer a small selection of games, depending on what they think their players will like so the selection is likely to differ from casino to casino, if you’re a player in the UK. This only keeps things exciting though and you can browse through our list of UK Licensed Casinos in order to find the perfect one for you!
