We’re massive fans of the Swedish casino entertainment provider NetEnt (or Net Entertainment). We pride ourselves on bringing our readers all the latest to do with the company, including their game designs, any new projects, and the inclusion of new technologies.
Well, we’re going to kick off your Wednesday by letting you know exactly what’s happening at NetEnt’s headquarters – with some exciting new news to tell everyone about!
That’s right. Everyone’s favourite picture brand which brightens up your standard text messages will be coming to a NetEnt video slot later in 2017.
A deal has been struck to release the much-anticipated new game within Q3 of this year on current schedule, with the working title currently known as Emojiplant.
While some of NetEnt’s new releases cause us to scratch our heads on the premise until a teaser trailer is released, we’re fairly confident with what we’ll be seeing here. Plenty of smileys, hand signals, animals and more await, with a few Wild symbols thrown in for good measure, we hope!
A very different project also in the mix, but one that will be equally exciting for all, is Planet of the Apes. NetEnt have been negotiating with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products for the exclusive rights to the film series – and it sounds as though they’ll be some innovative features heading our way.
Although details are at a bare minimum so far, we’ve been made aware that there will be unique gaming mechanics included. Furthermore, in keeping with the film series’ amazing graphics, NetEnt will be pushing back the boundaries of what’s possible for casino entertainment yet again for this area.
Pencilled in for the second half of 2017, we’re already looking forward to some free spins for this classic.
We couldn’t help but finish with the news that virtual reality is coming to NetEnt games in the near future!
Yep, the ground-breaking technology that continues to dominate future gaming thought processes is being applied to online casino entertainment – and NetEnt have chosen Gonzo’s Quest to trial it out.
Using the pioneering WebVR technology, we’re hoping to see Gonzo’s Quest VR hit the casino shelves by next year at the latest. If you want a taste of virtual reality right now, SlotsMillion have proudly introduced their 3D VR platform for players to enjoy.
