The software developers in the online casino industry are not standing still. In fact, the production mill is running at full speed! Especially one of the largest software developers in the world, NetEnt, is developing considerably. Which games are coming and which rumors are true or false? Online Casino Ground will sort it out for you. You can read it in the article below with a selection of the latest casino news updates from software developer NetEnt.
NEW: The “MAX Bigger Hits” Concept
While the share price of NetEnt (after the most recent interim financial report) has plummeted, the Swedish company simply comes up with interesting news. At the beginning of July, NetEnt was already in the news with a winner of the Hall of Gods jackpot, the launch of Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City and the spectacular Jumanji video slot (in collaboration with Sony Pictures Entertainment). Now during the iGB Live Amsterdam it is the right place and the right time to unveil their new product line: MAX.
What does the product line entail?
The MAX product line, or also called: The MAX Bigger Hits concept, is designed to accommodate different player groups with their different motivations and goals. This allows operators to be able to offer these different needs with just one game launch and one marketing promotion.
The BerryBurst and BerryBurst MAX slots will be launched on August 23, 2018. Here BerryBurst is the standard game and BerryBurst MAX logically includes the MAX function. What is the difference then? The MAX version offers a much greater profit potential, but with the same RTP and NetEnt technologies.
2.75 million euros in the Hall of Gods jackpot
That the NetEnt online slots are popular will probably not be new to you. Huge amounts are regularly paid out to winners and some lucky ones can even call themselves millionaires. This is also the case at the beginning of this month. A Finnish player won the insane Hall of Slots jackpot on Tuesday, July 3, 2018. He played on the mobile site of Paf.com with a bet of € 2 and won around € 2,750,000. Cachinggg, what a luck!
Earlier this year a jackpot of 1.4 million euros was paid out via NetEnt’s Arabian Nights and no less than 4.25 million via Mega Fortune Dreams. Those are great prizes.
In addition to the payout of the Hall of Gods jackpot, the Finnish winner also receives an additional € 350,000 through the NetEnt Mega Million campaign. This campaign awards an extra amount of money to the winner of the Hall of Gods or Mega Fortune mega jackpot. As if it wasn't enough …
Everyone is under the spell of Jumanji
July was of course all about the launch of NetEnt’s newest slot: Jumanji. The video slot based on the film of the same name by Sony Pictures Entertainment. This slot combines the classic board game with video slots and is very well received by the players. Everything seems to be right in this online slot. The design looks amazing, the bonus features are unique and exciting and the sounds and animations ensure the ultimate gaming experience. Jumanji is quietly called the best slot machine of 2018. Bold, because a few very nice video slots are coming! Play Jumanji for example at Casino Euro.
Expected NetEnt slots 2018
July 24, 2018 – Fairytale Legends: Mirror Mirror
Mirror Mirror on the wall. Who is the most beautiful in the country? You can ask yourself this question from 24 July, because then NetEnt will come up with this newest addition to the fantasy series of slots. Mirror, mirror of course you know from Snow White. The fairy tale was already conceived in 1812 by the brothers Grimm. To this day it is still one of the most famous fairy tales in the world.
Snow White is full of special characters and elements. It cannot be otherwise than that amazing animations have been incorporated in the slot. We expect the magic mirror, the poisoned apple, the glass box and the characters of the jealous stepmother (the Queen). Of course the seven dwarfs are not missing. Enough inspiration!
August 23, 2018 – BerryBurst and BerryBurst MAX
We already talked about it: the launch of BerryBurst (MAX). The newest fruity video slot experience from NetEnt with even greater profits. It is the first game to be launched in the MAX product line. The first details will be announced by NetEnt at the beginning of August. Yet we expect (given the name) that it will be a sequel to one of the most popular slots ever: Starburst. BerryBurst will shock the online casino world on August 23 and we, too, expect a lot from it. Some tasty graphics and functions, maybe a new payout mechanism?
The video slot will have at least 5 reels, 3 rows with Wild’s, “Expanding Wilds” and Re-Spins. With the Cluster Pays mechanism you as a player can collect clusters of fruit and symbols. We look forward to creating our own summer cocktail!
September 24, 2018 – Double Stacks
NetEnt also keeps things exciting here. The first details will come out in early September. The title Double Stacks promises twice as much fun. Will it be a sequel to Butterfly Staxx or something completely new with super stacked symbols, for example, resulting in a super large win? Anyway, we expect that this launch will also be a lot of fun again and we await the excitement.
October 24, 2018 – Halloween Jack
Just before Halloween starts, the Swedish software developer will launch his view of the spooky tension of the year. Halloween Jack is released on October 24 and promises to put players in a world of mysticism that makes them scream out of pure joy or fear? The sound is certainly promising.
October 2018 – Narcos
Watch out for Narcos fans! In January, NetEnt signed an agreement with Gaumont, the oldest film studio in the world and producers of the Narcos series, for a new blockbuster with the same name. That alone promises excitement and a lot of excitement. The launch is planned for the end of October or the beginning of November. We are very curious about the design again this time.
The newly anticipated games look promising. We can't wait. At the end of August we will tell you more about Fairytale Legends: Mirror Mirror (a taste of another Fairytale slot) and BerryBurst.
