Here’s a look at NetEnt slots, past and present, with information about the best NetEnt slots and where Indiana players can find them.
History of NetEnt slots and casino games
The company that would become NetEnt dates back to the 1960s when it began in Stockholm as a provider of slot machines to Swedish retail casinos. The company soon expanded its reach, providing slots to casinos in other countries. Then, in 1996, it became Net Entertainment and began additionally focusing on developing casino software.
In 2000, the company launched an online casino and, within a few years, was licensed to operate in several regulated markets. From there, NetEnt was spun off and soon listed on the NGM Equity market exchange (2007) and the Stockholm Stock Exchange (2009).
NetEnt is now an international company with offices in seven countries, best known for providing top slots both to retail and online casinos around the world.
Popular NetEnt slot machines and online slots
The slot developers at NetEnt have created hundreds of titles over the years, including some of the most-played and best-liked slots in the casino industry. Here are five favorites from the NetEnt library. If you play slots at all or even have a passing familiarity with popular titles, you’ll probably recognize most if not all of these.
Longtime favorite Gonzo’s Quest refers to the quest for El Dorado, the city of gold. Rather than spinning wheels, the game features symbols tumbling down avalanche-like, a true innovation when the slot was first introduced in 2011. Players can win in many different ways, with free spins, multipliers and chances to win huge payouts, sometimes as large as 37,500 times the stake.
Introduced around the same time as Gonzo’s Quest, Starburst is one of the most-played slots in casino history. Exhibiting a cool and simple design, the five-reel, three-row slot has 10 paylines and features vivid colors much like the similarly named fruit-flavored candy, a groovy soundtrack, and other features like expanding wilds. Look also for Starburst XXXTreme and Slingo Starburst.
Employing a theme inspired by Greek mythology, Divine Fortune is another simple yet compelling slot that has entertained players for years. Columns, statues, gods and monsters help form the game’s unique design, with expanding wilds, free spins, and three progressive jackpots (minor, major and mega), which add considerably to the game’s excitement.
Twin Spin (stylized as Twin $pin) is another favorite slot from NetEnt. The symbols harken back to the heyday of mechanical reel slots with lucky 7s, bars, diamonds, and fruits for symbols. There are five reels, three rows, and a whopping 243 paylines, with the special “twin reel” feature linking two reels (and sometimes three or four) to increase your chance of winning.
Dead or Alive II
A sequel slot to the popular original, Dead or Alive II continues the Old West theme with symbols of playing cards, guns, holsters, cowboy hats and a Western soundtrack. The five-reel, three-row, nine-payline slot offers scatter wins, wild substitution, sticky wilds and multiple free spin games, including Old Saloon, High Noon Saloon, and Train Heist.
That just scratches the surface when it comes to NetEnt real money slots. Other favorites from NetEnt include:
- Butterfly Staxx II
- Fruit Shop
- Guns N’ Roses
- Hotline 2
- Jack and the Beanstalk
- Koi Princess
- Mega Joker
Features that set NetEnt slot games apart
NetEnt games are known for their sophisticated yet simple design, with lots of entertaining themes scattered throughout the developer’s wide-ranging catalog. Here are some other features that help NetEnt slots stand out from the crowd.
High return to player (RTP) percentages
NetEnt is known for creating slots with relatively high RTP percentages. All five of the slots highlighted above feature RTP percentages of 96% or slightly higher. That’s a relatively good theoretical return that typically enables players to win more often.
NetEnt also has many slots like Divine Fortune that feature progressive jackpots yet in many cases still retain nice RTP percentages. Other top NetEnt jackpot slots include Mercy of the Gods, Imperial Riches, Grand Spinn, Mega Fortune, Arabian Nights and Hall of Gods.
Another fun feature found in many NetEnt slots is cluster pays, an alternate way to win that, instead of using paylines, awards players hitting certain groups of symbols. Such games usually feature more reels and/or rows to enable more clusters, as found in Twin Spin Deluxe, Aloha! Cluster Pays, Emoji Planet, and other titles.
First introduced in 2020 with Gods of Gold: InfiniReels, this mechanic introduces unlimited ways to win. The InfiniReels concept involves adding a new reel to the game with opportunities to add infinitely more with each added reel multiplying the ways to win. Dragon’s Fire: InfiniReels also employs the feature.
Hero wilds involve wild symbols being created when you spin a winning combination that includes a hero symbol. The new wild symbols can then generate more hero wild combinations, making for very lucrative possibilities. The mechanic was introduced with the aptly named Wild Worlds slot.
