Net Entertainment Software Review
2 September 2014 Written by:
Net Entertainment, usually referred to as NetEnt, is a supplier of online casino and games software for the online casino industry. Originally established in 1996 in Scandinavia, their roots can be traced back to a land based casino operator and are one of the oldest software companies in the online casino business. NetEnt offers over 200 games, all with modern, beautiful graphics and smooth game play.
Offering 17 different table games, NetEnt covers the entire field of this segment of gambling. You can play European, French and American roulette, Baccarat, Red Dog (which is a progressive jackpot game), Pontoon, Oasis poker, Punto Banco, Blackjack and Caribbean Stud plus a few others. All of the tables look like real felt and have graphics that are large enough to read but not so big to distract from game play. The betting range is also acceptable and will appeal multiple levels of players.
Like any good online casino software provider, NetEnt offers plenty of games tied into progressive jackpots, all of which are network games. The list of games includes Mega Fortune, Hall of Gods, Arabian Nights, Cash Bomb, Caribbean Stud Pro Series poker, Gold Rush, Vault Assault, Geisha Wonders, Icy Wonders, Tiki Wonders, Caribbean Stud, Mega Joker, Super Lucky Frog and Golden Derby. As an interesting side note, Net Ent’s Mega Fortune is one of the highest paying progressives online and is recognized for awarding the largest jackpot in online history.
The slots available are where the software really shines. The video slot graphics and game play is really second to none. Popular slots available include Aliens, Big Bang, Crime Scene, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Evolution, Frankenstein, Excalibur, Gonzo’s Quest, Jack Hammer, Jack Hammer 2, Mystery at the Mansion, Robin Hood, Scarface, South Park and Zombies. The use of animations is heavily seen and really adds to the quality of the experience but more importantly, the size of winnings is also larger due to the features that are incorporated into those games.
The video poker options available on the Net Entertainment software are limited. I found this surprising considering the amount of slot machines and great work they have done in that genre, but the company clearly has its focus on slots and therefore video poker and new titles under that category do tend to take a back seat. Currently you can play Joker Wild, Jacks or Better, Deuces Wild, and All American.
NetEnt also offers a wide range of lottery and scratch card games to complement their game library. Scratch cards tend not to be as popular but there is enough of a demand for them that it is important to recognize that these are available. The lottery games include Treasure Hunt, The Lost Pyramid and Marbles whereas the Scratch card games include 7 Gold Scratch, Triple Wins High Roller, Tribble, Shoot 4 Gold, Ace and Bubbles.
There are plenty of casinos using Net Entertainment to power their casino software. This is a developer who has seen substantial growth in the past few years and that is not expected to change. The quality of their games is something many people are requesting and due to that demand, many are electing to offer Net Ent games to their customers. The range of games is more than acceptable but again, is focuses towards those who like slots. The betting limits cater to all budgets, which is a plus but it is the action that comes out of Net Ent that is really exciting.
