Net Entertainment, or NetEnt to its friends, seeks to provide us gamers with Entertainment for the Net. Anyone who has ever played any of their online or mobile slots can verify very certainly that this is the very least that they do.
NetEnt’s mission statement is to drive the digital casino market forward, and with a series of smash slots and Live Casino hits they are not only driving the market forward but packing up the stalls on a giant trailer and hitching it to the back of a Lamborghini. Want a clue as to how progressive NetEnt are? Look no further than they’re mission to employ a 50/50 gender balance across its workforce by 2020.
Such a progressive in-house nature reflects its out-house. So to speak. Games like South Park: Reel Chaos and Steam Tower use a multi-level bonus feature to give great depth to the gameplay, while the Stacked Wilds and Stacked Symbols that feature so prominently in many of NetEnt’s slot titles – including the retro-futuristic Neon Staxx and straight-up futuristic Starburst – boost base game action into bumper gameplay. And if that’s the case for Stacked Wilds we can but boggle at the Colossal symbols of Spiñata Grande.
As NetEnt has been rampaging across the slots since 1996, we don’t have the time or space to list all the awards they’ve scooped. The very fact that they bagged Slot Provider of the Year, Innovation in Mobile and Mobile Supplier of the Year at the EGR Awards 2015 tells it’s own story of where NetEnt in general and its Touch mobile platform in particular are at this present time. With consecutive gongs at the Women In Gaming Awards in 2014 and 2015 and another hat-trick at the EGR Awards in 2014 and 2013, we can only hope that NetEnt has a whopping great mantlepiece.
So it is that NetEnt can lay claim that innovation is at the core of all they do. The merest glance of their achievements and spin of their catalogue and we can see that they very much know what they are on about.
