NetEnt leading the charge with HTML5 conversion

Friday 15th December 2017
Online gaming provider NetEnt, has announced that it has converted the majority of its games into HTML5, whilst also creating mobile versions of its back catalogue.

Technical support of Flash related media is coming to an end and many large browser suppliers have publicly announced they will no longer support Flash. Therefore, a move to a new technology supported by browsers is a necessity and a total of 70 top-performing classic NetEnt titles are now available in HTML5.

The move to HTML5 ensures a better player experience as it delivers better graphics, sounds and animations. Mobile versions of all the upgraded desktop games have also been developed, enabling players to enjoy their favourite games in superior quality whether they are at home or on the go.

Announcing the milestone, Henrik Fagerlund, Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, said: “This is an exciting time as we expand our technological reach and it is crucial we are able to give players the chance to keep playing their favourite games. We just recently released upgrades for four of our classic titles: Dracula, Jackpot 6000, Excalibur, Spellcast.

“Given the growth of mobile gaming, we have to continue establishing ourselves as an industry leader by making these advancements and moving with the times.”

Slots segments and Table games (RNG) have been upgraded and newer versions of Video Poker and specific games such as Baccarat will be coming soon.
