NetEnt won three EGR B2B 2017 awards this Tuesday at the Hurlingham Club. The software provider was also nominated for several different categories.
It is no stranger to the EGR B2B awards. For more than two years, the company has been making many innovative games and much more.
EGR B2B Awards
The three awards that NetEnt took home are the ‘Mobile supplier of the year, ‘RNG casino supplier of the year, and ‘Innovation in RNG casino software’. The mobile aspect of the iGaming industry is significantly important since there are many bettors who are on their phone or tablet these days. NetEnt continues to deliver the kind of mobile software that anyone wants to play.
Apart from the three awards, Netent was also nominated for 10 categories. These are:
- Innovation in mobile
- Innovation in RNG casino software
- Innovation in slot provision
- Live casino supplier
- Mobile gaming software
- Mobile supplier
- Multi-channel supplier
- RNG casino supplier
- Slot supplier
- Best customer service
Per Eriksson, CEO of NetEnt, said:
“It is hugely satisfying to once again have our achievements identified by the industry and our peers at the EGR B2B Awards. We are especially delighted as these awards for mobile, RNG casino and innovation represent the core areas of our business.”
The reason for NetEnt’s awards and nomination comes from the company’s decision to take a risk in something new. One of which is its significant development in the Virtual Reality and live dealer games tech. The company will be the first to create a virtual slot game that uses real money. The game will be a VR version of NetEnt’s popular Gonzo’s Quest. The game will have the same artwork as the previous version.
Gonzo’s Quest VR included a 360 degree view. A player controls the camera or view in the game by moving his head. The game will still feature a ‘cascade reel’ mechanic where the symbols will fall down on the reels. In Gonzo’s Quest VR, a player will experience seeing the symbols falling down right on top of his head.
The company is also opening its doors to new regulated markets. In fact, NetEnt launched its games to operators within Serbia just this month. Recently, the company acquires a supplier license for the British Columbia market in Canada. With the help of Codere, NetEnt games became available in the Mexican market last month.
NetEnt also released its ‘The challenge’ employer marketing campaign. This is a web series run by the company’s employees. It’s a campaign to showcase the people behind the company’s popular games.
The challenge involves sending four NetEnt employees to the Alps. From there, the four will work with each other to climb the highest possible mountain despite having no experience in mountain climbing.
