Scandinavian based slot developer NetEnt were founded in 1996 and played a key role in the mid 90s and early 00s as the online gambling world started to develop at a lightning rate. Fast forward to 2019 and as NetEnt continue to grow and look to innovate the market further, they acquired the slot specialist provider Red Tiger Gaming.
Now interestingly in 2018 Red Tiger acquired the Megaways™ license from Big Time Gaming, so immediately what everybody wondered was whether NetEnt would be able to use this license to upgrade some of their slot catalogue to the Megaways™ mechanic.
January 2020 answered that question as NetEnt through a collaboration with Red Tiger launched Piggy Riches Megaways™, this is the debut slot from NetEnt in the Megaways™ market and now that the reel modifying gaming engine is at that disposal, players can begin to get excited about seeing original releases from the provider, as well as some old favourites receiving the Megaways™ makeover. Surely at some point there has to be a Dead or Alive Megaways™ slot!
NetEnt have one of the most impressive slot libraries out of all of the slot developers, so choosing the best slots they have to offer is going to be a tricky task, and this could well be a list that gets up dated on a regular basis. We shall however endeavour to do our best, and point you in the direction on NetEnt slots that you must give a try.
We know that when it comes to the slots that RTP is important. Some players will decide whether they are going to choose a particular slot to play based on this information. We thought that it would be a good idea to list NetEnt's Megaways™ slots and attach their RTP ( Return to Player Percentage ) This way you can easily check which ones offer the best return, and compare them to other slots in the Megaways™ niche. As more titles become available we will tally up the percentages so you can see the average of a NetEnt Megaways™ slot.
NetEnt all aways very active in the slot market producing a number of titles per year, so now the Megaways™ mechanic is in their arsenal we could see a flurry of games coming our way over the next couple of years.
In all fairness NetEnt are more than capable of creating their own unique slots, so what we are really hoping for is that they use their nous and provide us with some original mind blowing Megaways™ Slots, and really put their stamp on the gaming engine. Time will tell, but we're very excited to see what comes from NetEnt in the very near future.
