Net Entertainment, or more commonly known as NetEnt, have been around since the early 90’s and has carved a solid place for themselves in the online gambling market over the past 2 decades. They are considered by many to be one of the top contenders for the position of top software casino provider in the world and a quick look at their products make it easy to see why that is, as they produce some of the best video slots out there!

Since their inception, they’ve grown immensely and now employ over 700 people in their widespread offices in countries such as Sweden, Malta, Ukraine, Gibraltar, USA and Poland.

NetEnt was one of the very first online casinos to break into the Italian casino market in 2011 due to that country’s notoriously strict gambling regulations. They then went on to start trading in Denmark in 2012 and Spain in 2015, on the very day that the first licenses were granted by the regulators. In 2014 they boasted an unbelievable number of 21.4 billion transactions being handled by their casino games.
