“Our global jackpot games are continuing to break records across the globe and we’re proud to be able to bring such monumental wins to players through Mega Fortune,” said Andy Whitworth, Chief Commercial Officer at NetEnt. “We hope to continue raising the bar with even bigger jackpots in future.”

Niklas Örtbrant, Head of Online Casino, at Svenska Spel Sport & Casino, said: “To break records twice in two weeks with such a significant jump from the second to first highest win is incredible and we can’t wait to see what the jackpot climbs to next time. We wish all the best to the lucky player and hope they enjoy this life-changing sum.”

There’s a murder to be solved in NetEnt’s latest release Cash Noire™
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

NetEnt is taking players to the criminal underworld in its new release, Cash Noire ™, where solving the case of the curious Green Ace murders will result in big rewards.

Set in the crime-ridden streets of San Cayetano, the 5-reel, 4-row game brings back the player-favourite proprietary Avalanche™ feature pioneered with Gonzo’s Quest™ with a new, engaging twist.

The popular mechanic creates fresh chances to win as symbols that form winning combinations disappear and are replaced by falling symbols, while mystery symbols that transform into random symbols make way for even bigger payouts.

The Free Spins round, triggered by collecting clues, adds to the slot’s excitement as players chase down a prime suspect through the street map to potentially unlock progressive multipliers.

In addition to its expansive set of features, Cash Noire™ offers an RTP of 96.06% as well as 1024 betways to maximise player anticipation.

“Cash Noire™ is a mechanically thrilling game set against the backdrop of a murder mystery that will leave players on the edge of their seats,” said Andy Whitworth, NetEnt Chief Commercial Officer. “With the return of Avalanche™ and a strong feature set which ramps up to solve the crime, the gameplay has huge engagement and retention potential and we look forward to it being enjoyed by a wide variety of players.”

NetEnt on for another branded smash hit with Street Fighter II: The World Warrior Slot™
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

NetEnt has transformed one of the best-selling arcade games of all time for online slot fans with the release of Street Fighter II: The World Warrior Slot™, featuring a cast of eight original characters ready for combat.

In a new spin on the classic video game from Capcom™, the new 5-reel, 5-row Cluster Pays video slot emulates the battle mechanics of the original title by pitting the player’s chosen character against opponents and letting the reels decide which fighter is victorious.

Winning combinations determine how much damage a character receives, and each battle continues until one fighter runs out of health points. Losing players can then redeem their honour – and win some cash – in the Car Smash Bonus Game, whilst those who win trigger the multi-level Beat the Bosses Free Spins and take on four recognisable bosses with a Multiplier increasing at every level.

Players who defeat all four of the bosses are crowned the World Warrior Champion and are awarded with an extra prize, all together making for a gameplay that upholds the excitement and nostalgia of the original videogame.

“In developing Street Fighter II: The World Warrior Slot™ we felt a huge responsibility to ensure our slot game lived up to the iconic 90s original – a videogame which has continued to entertain fans for almost 30 years,” says Bryan Upton, NetEnt Director of Games.

“Authenticity was the critical factor to the design of this game, from the arcade-inspired art and sounds to the game mechanics, as well as the Beat the Bosses and Car Smashing bonus rounds. We designed the game to fuel players’ nostalgic competitiveness throughout the gameplay. We are immensely proud of the end product and we hope players all over the world appreciate it.”
