NetENT Challenges Competition with Competitive RTP Slots

NetENT is one of the world’s oldest online casino software providers. The company is well-known for having created some of the most memorable online fruit machines, most of which are widely available online today.

This multi-award-winning company has been crafting and supplying unique online fruitys and several classic favourites like roulette, blackjack, poker, and baccarat to many of the industry’s most trusted sites since as far back as 1996, and I have been a fan for almost twenty years.

On this page, I will be focusing on some of their marketing strategies and business models used to fend off stiff competition from their rival providers, such as Playtech, Blueprint, Pragmatic Play, Play’n GO, GamesGlobal, and Yggdrasil, to name a few.

I’ll be paying particular attention to how their games have above-average RTP% payout rates – the important value that tells us how much their fruitys pay back in winnings.

Can NetENT fruitys be trusted?

Yes. This highly trusted company is licensed to supply digital content to licensed and regulated websites by multiple mid to top-tier licensing authorities/commissions.

These authorities and third-party testing agencies frequently monitor and test their software and systems for fairness.

I played my first NetENT fruity almost 20 years ago, and I think I’m not alone when I say they are one of my favourite providers. This is mainly thanks to iconic titles like Starburst and Gonzo’s Quest and good payout rates.

Some of you may also be familiar with their world-record-breaking Mega Fortune progressive jackpot fruity, another one of my favourites, which paid out an incredible €17.8 million to one lucky person in January 2013 – the biggest online jackpot win paid out by an online fruit machine at the time.

This same famous online fruity has also created numerous multi-millionaires over the past 15 years. Some of you may have played a NetENT fruity without even realising, as not everyone pays attention to which company has made the online fruit machine they are playing.

You can normally find out which company has made an online fruity by launching it and paying attention to the loading screen. The company logo usually appears during this short clip.

NetEnt fruitys can now be found at over 1,000 trusted sites, some of which have been expertly reviewed on Many of their featured NetEnt sites are currently offering free spins with a good RTP to all new gamers.

The fact that NetENT software is hosted on this many world-class websites shows how trustworthy the company is. It’s also a testament to how good their digital content is.

What are NetENT’s most famous online fruity machines?

Apart from the Starburst, Gonzo’s Quest, and Mega Fortune online fruit machines, some of their other most famous titles I can recommend checking out if you haven’t already are the following great examples:

  • Jumanji
  • Divine Fortune (progressive)
  • Dead or Alive 2
  • Narcos
  • Vikings
  • Hotline 2
  • Twin Spin Deluxe
  • Starburst XXXtreme
  • Knight Rider
  • Jungle Spirit Megaways
  • Jack Hammer (1, 2, and 3)
  • Finn and the Swirly Spin
  • Lost Relics (1 and 2)
  • Fruit Shop Megaways

That’s not forgetting Planet of the Apes, The Wish Master, The Wish Master Megaways, and Gordon Ramsay: Hell’s Kitchen, to name a few.

Some of my other personal favourites that I also think you will enjoy, especially if you have fun spinning the reels in any of these other great suggestions, are Motörhead, Guns’ N Roses, Hall of Gods, Conan, Ozzy Osbourne, and Mega Fortune Dreams. The list goes on.

How does NetEnt compete against its rivals?

Apart from making engaging, feature-rich online fruit machines that are fun to play with immersive storylines, the likeable characters they have created, the fun sound effects and accompanying background audio in each title, and their life-changing jackpots, NetENT also ensure participants get treated fairly by offering ones with Return to Player percentage (RTP%) payout rates that are classed as high or above average.

In all the years I have enjoyed playing online fruitys, I have found that highly volatile fruitys (those which pay out bigger average wins but less frequently) typically have a 91.00 to 93.00% RTP payout rate, which is considered low.

An average RTP payout rate is around 93.00% to 95.00%, which I don’t think is bad at all. An above-average RTP payout rate is considered anything over 95.00% to 97.00%, and a high RTP payout rate is considered anything over 98.00%, which is great for players like me.

Here are a few examples of NetENT fruity with above-average RTP payout rates: Funk Master (96.04%), Gonzo’s Gold (96.10%), Knight Rider (96.07%), Silverback Gold (96.11%), Reef Raider (96.10%), and Starburst XXXtreme (96.25%).

Other examples of NetENT fruits with high or above-average RTP payout rates that help them stand out from rival software providers and their fruitys are Parthenon: Quest for Immortality (96.03%), Gordon Ramsay: Hell’s Kitchen (96.07%), Rome: The Golden Age (96.06%), Finn and the Candy Spin (96.62%), and Druid’s Magic (96.14%).

Having high or above-average RTP% payout rates is an important strategy that NetENT uses to keep players like me happy. I enjoy playing most NetEnt fruitys because I always know I’m getting a fair ‘expected’ return on how much money I wager in a typical session.

However, it’s also important to note that just because online fruitys like this have a good RTP payout rate, it doesn’t always guarantee you are going to win more.

With that in mind, online fruitys with high or above-average payout rates are still [mathematically speaking] more likely to pay compared to ones with a low RTP payout rate.

When playing online fruitys from NetENT or any other trusted provider, make sure you stick to the world-class sites that are fully licensed and regulated by globally renowned authorities and controlled by reputable companies with good standing in the industry.
