NetEnt is one of the longest-standing software companies in the iGaming industry. While NetEnt’s official launch occurred way back in Sweden in 1996, the company that NetEnt stemmed from was initially founded in 1963. This makes NetEnt possibly one of the oldest brands in iGaming. Since then NetEnt has managed to make quite a name for itself.
Today most software providers develop all their games using the HTML5 development platform, this has become an industry standard among software providers. NetEnt essentially started this trend, the company had been creating mobile games long before they were popular and moved many of its top-performing games to the HTML5 platform in 2014. Today, all of NeEnt’s games have been moved to HTML5, this allows for better graphics and gameplay as players can enjoy these games on all major operating systems and devices.
Before NetEnt was acquired by Evolution Gaming in 2020, NetEnt had focussed on producing various online casino games including live casino options. After the acquisition NetEnt strictly focused on providing slots and table games. Many of NetEnt’s most popular titles are slot games including Gonzo’s Quest, Gordon Ramsay: Hell’s Kitchen, Starburst, Wild Wild West, and Guns n’Roses. Apart from NetEnt’s famous branded titles, their table games are also widely sought after. This can largely be attributed to NetEnt’s progressive jackpots which have become known to provide players with life-altering wins. One of NetEnt’s slots titled Mega Fortune™, even found itself in the Guinness Book of World Records after a player won $19.5 million.
Apart from being a Guinness World Record holder, NetEnt has also secured a great number of awards within the iGaming industry. While it would be difficult to name each and every one of the awards NetEnt has received over its many years, here are the most memorable. NetEnt has received Innovator of the Year at IGA Awards 2014, Slot Provider of the Year, Innovation in Mobile, and Mobile Supplier of the Year at EGR Awards 2015. The EGR Innovation in Mobile award at the EGR Awards 2018, Casino Product of the Year for Jumanji at the Global Gaming Awards London 2019. Mobile Gaming Software Supplier of the Year and novation in Slot Provision at EGR B2B Awards 2021. This virtually only scrapes the surface of all the awards received by NetEnt throughout its career, and considering the company has been in operation for so long it’s not hard to understand why their awards are so abundant.
NetEnt is a truly reliable software provider; the company is publicly traded on the Stockholm Stock Exchange. NetEnt has been in operation for so long that it’s managed to gather a great number of licenses. The various licenses under NetEnt’s belt can include the United Kingdom, Malta, Gibraltar, Italy, Denmark, Spain, Alderney, Bulgaria, Romania, Czech Republic, Mexico, Serbia, Norway, Finland, and others! Apart from its many licenses, NetEnt’s games are also certified and tested by distinguished third-party testing labs including eCogra, Gaming Laboratories International, iTech Labs, Technical Services Bureau, and the Global Gambling Guidance Group. Altogether NetEnt goes through a great amount of effort to provide players all across the globe with games that are certified and trusted.
Considering that NetEnt has been in operation since 1996, the company has had a great deal of time to perfect its software solutions. Today NetEnt is one of the most respected software providers in the industry. NetEnt has collaborated with massive companies such as Universal and 20th Century Fox to produce high-quality branded games that are all proven to be fair and available for play on any device. It’s no wonder the company has made its mark in the iGaming realm.
