”NetEnt was an obvious choice when selecting an online casino supplier ahead of our re-regulated market entry on January 1st, 2019. We are convinced that NetEnt will deliver casino games of the highest quality and become a very important partner for us,” says Fredrik Wastenson, MD and Head of Business Unit, Svenska Spel Sport & Casino.

Henrik Fagerlund, MD NetEnt Malta Ltd. and Chief Product Officer of NetEnt comments: “I am very pleased that Svenska Spel has selected NetEnt as supplier ahead of the Swedish market re-regulation. Svenska Spel is the most established gambling operator and the largest sponsor of sports in Sweden.

As expected, the new regulated online gambling market in Pennsylvania has opened. After successful integrations, NetEnt’s games are now live in the US state.  

 

In March this year, NetEnt, through its subsidiary NetEnt Americas LLC, was granted an Interactive Gaming Manufacturer Conditional License by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB).

Pennsylvania is the second large US state to regulate online casino and with almost 13 million people, it is the fifth largest state by population. The state has a long tradition of gambling on the land-based side. As previously communicated, NetEnt has signed customer agreements with several gambling operators in the state and has been preparing to launch its games as the market opens.

“I am very pleased that the market in Pennsylvania has now opened. We are one of the few online casino suppliers offering our games right from the start, and I am convinced that our award-winning online casino games will be much appreciated by players in Pennsylvania,” says Erik Nyman, Managing Director NetEnt Americas LLC.

An adventurous archaeologist has discovered an ancient pyramid and seeks to solve its mysteries and find its treasures in NetEnt’s latest release, Mercy of the GodsTM.

The game is a beautifully designed, 5-reel, 3-row, 20 winline video slot offering progressive jackpots with NetEnt’s network of global operators.

In the game, Isis, the goddess of life and prosperity, awards Gift of Life Re-Spins with the added gift of Double Wilds. Scatter, or the eye of Ra, opens the way to Free Spins at the top of the pyramid, while collecting bonus symbols gives the chance to enter the realm of Anubis, and the possibility of winning the Gift of Wealth Jackpot.

“Built on top performing Divine Fortune game mechanics, our casino partners can expect a strong performance from our latest release.

Cash-O-Matic is an adventure packed with Free Spins and Multipliers.

 

NetEnt’s Cash-O-Matic is a 1024-bet way, 5-reel, 4-row video slot designed with the look of an old-style cash machine and loaded with game mechanics.

The new, retro-looking title has flipped NetEnt’s proprietary AvalancheTM feature on its head. Now operating in reverse, AvalancheTM sees all winning symbols remain on the reels, while the rest disappear.

Cash-O-Matic is full of Free Spins and Multipliers. The number of Free Spins awarded equals the amount of Scatter symbols collected, with a minimum of 10 Free Spins there to be won. With Scatter lengths of up to 18, the number of Free Spins can get really high.”.

In the main game, the Level Multiplier is awarded if at least one row is filled with winning symbols. The more rows, the higher the Multiplier value. In Free Spins, the Multiplier depends on the number of Scatter symbols that activated Free Spins and can go as high as x50.

“We’re pleased to present Cash-O-Matic, a true homage to the first slot machine, the Liberty Bell. High volatility reverse AvalancheTM action, Free Games, Scatter Stacks and Multipliers in a very simple and elegant art package. A game for the VIP players out there.” said Bryan Upton, NetEnt Director of Games.
