NetEnt

NetEnt or Netentertainment for the full name are possibly the brightest slots developer of recent times. Founded in 1996 in Sweden they then had a capital value of 10,000 Swedish Krone, about £1000. Now listed on Nasdaq with a capitalization value of 20 Billion Krone (£2 Billion)! Almost went bust in 2000 when the chairman couldn’t even give the company away for a debt write-off, this is a remarkable story. NetEnt have developed nearly 200 games and their slots are distinctive with many player settings and new ideas. Out of all the major developers they have the fewest ‘cloned’ games as a proportion of their catalogue. NetEnt slots can be found in nearly all major European online casinos, although their software has been reverse-engineered and pirated on non-NetEnt servers. Twin Spin and Pyramid Quest along with their worst-ever game Starburst are just three of their titles.
