Originally founded in 1996 as Net Entertainment, NetEnt is both a pioneer of online gambling and a trailblazer when it comes to both online and offline casino game development.
The Swedish company is among the most successful software providers in the world, with a clientele of more than 200 online casinos.
They also have over 1000 staff members, split across 8 country offices, with the most lucrative offices being in the USA, where they serve over a dozen American casinos.
Included in the employee list are over 500 developers who are tasked with the seemingly easy but most likely hard task of creating several new NetEnt Casino games on a yearly basis.
Talking of games, NetEnt has quite a few blockbusters in their portfolio. These include some of the most recognizable NetEnt casino games such as Starburst, Jumanji, Guns N' Roses, Gonzo's Quest, Divine Fortune, Blood Suckers, Wild Wild West, Dazzle Me, Hotline, and Jack and the Beanstalk.
They also partner with major movie studios like Universal and 20th Century Fox, which enables them to create spin-off slots from popular movies from the studios. The most notable NetEnt casino games under this category include Frankenstein, Dracula, Aliens, and Scarface.
In addition to the video slots, NetEnt has also produced some amazing table games, which include roulettes, blackjacks, and pokers that have, and continue to dazzle American casino fans and foes alike.
Their roulette offerings are primarily available in a Live Casino platform and include names like Classic Roulette Live, European Roulette, VIP Roulette Live, Roulette MAX, and Auto Roulette Studio.
Notably, there aren't many blackjack games in the NetEnt games collection, but the few available do pack a formidable punch. At the top NetEnt-affiliated casinos, you will find blackjack games like BLITZ Blackjack, Branded Casino Blitz Blackjack, and Perfect Blackjack.
In case you are not aware, blackjacks typically have a higher RTP than other NetEnt casino games offered in American casinos. This is because the house edge is relatively smaller, hence your chances of winning are higher than with video slots or roulettes. That, combined with the eccentric graphics that symbolize NetEnt titles, puts these blackjack games deep in the 'must-play' basket.
When it comes to their flagship poker offering, Texas Hold 'Em Pro, NetEnt chose to maintain a classic design (52 cards and all) and gameplay feel that is reminiscent of an old school World Series tournament.
While the company doesn't offer much in terms of poker variety, Texas Hold' Em is arguably the most popular online poker slot in US casinos, and many would agree that it deserves to be classed on its own.
With the US increasingly restricting online gambling activities, a large number of casinos have left the country over the last two decades, which has hit the bottom lines of gaming developers like NetEnt hard.
Indeed, the company abandoned the US market in 2009 after the passing of the federal anti-gambling law. They, however, resumed operating in the American gambling market in 2015, with their main focus on the gambling-friendly state of New Jersey, from where they serve a rapidly growing number of real USA casinos.
