NetEnt Spices up Its Gaming Library with MAX Slots

Online casino game developer NetEnt announced its newest gaming service that caters to both casual and hardcore bettors—the MAX slot game product line.

According to NetEnt, the new concept came from the suggestions of the gaming community that wanted a more diverse catalog of slot games catering to their motivation to play. Players who want to win big and those who want a casual spin can now enjoy the same game with any MAX slot title.

Players can expect to see two different versions of a slot game under the MAX product line, both for the casual players and for the high rollers. Players who spin for fun can play the regular version of the released title. Meanwhile, the MAX players—or those who want to win big—can wager on the MAX version of the game.

The MAX version of a slot game will have the same mechanics, visual gameplay, and Return to Player as the regular version. The difference comes with volatility as the MAX version will serve as the more volatile version of the game. This means this mode of the game offers larger rewards, but these prizes come less often as the chances of landing a winning combination go lower.

NetEnt said:

“We know that operators and players want the high standard of game-play experience when it comes to game mechanics, design and sound that NetEnt is known to deliver. But they also want a diversity in our portfolio in order to mirror the diversity of tastes and player motivations. We have listened and one of our initiatives is the new product line MAX. MAX games are released alongside a sister game release, with a tailor-made release for casual players and players looking for games with high win potential.”

Henrik Fagerlund, NetEnt chief product officer, added:

“It is important for us to diversify the volatility in our games as we know that our partners are demanding more flexible games catering to different player needs, and we are supplier that listens to our customers and deliver quality. We are certain that the MAX releases will add another dimension to our already hugely popular portfolio, and we are pleased to increase the standard of the gameplay experience for players.”

The first titles under the MAX product line are BerryBurst and BerryBurst MAX, which NetEnt will release on August 23.

Berry Exciting Slot Games?

BerryBurst and BerryBurst MAX are both three-row, five-reel slot games featuring fruits as the high-paying symbols. Both games utilize NetEnt’s famous Cluster Pays system, which removes paylines in favor of grouped symbols. The MAX version of the game reportedly offers to as much as six times the wagered coins as the highest coin prize.

NetEnt presented a pre-release version of both games during the iGB Live Amsterdam held on July 18, 2018. Online gambling news outlet Casino Grounds had exclusive access to the new games in coordination with famous online casino streamer LetsGiveItASpin. The streamer—real name Kim Hultman—streamed his sessions playing BerryBurst MAX on his own Twitch streaming channel.

The community reactions showed their interest in the new mechanics NetEnt offered. However, they admitted that the BerryBurst and BerryBurst MAX, as slot games, were not enticing enough.

Huggehugg, a Casino Grounds online casino streamer, commented:

“As many people say, it is a long overdue overhaul coming from NetEnt. The potential of the MAX version is greatly increased from recently released NetEnt games… We want more volatile slots coming from NetEnt, and this might be the concept we have been eagerly waiting for. I do not love BerryBurst MAX as a game, but I do love it as a concept.”

Players can access both BerryBurst and BerryBurst MAX after their release through desktop PCs, tablets, and smartphones. In addition, bettors can expect NetEnt to release more slot games under the MAX product line in the future.
