NetEnt Reelects Chairman, Highlights New Games

Share!Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+

There are dozens of online casino game suppliers that fill the virtual pages of the top gaming sites with new pokie games and exciting content. One of the most commonly found on those pages is NetEnt. The company is one of the most popular and respected game developers and software providers in the world.

Just as our Aussie casino experts watch the top pokies online for bonus offers and promotions, they also monitor all aspects of the industry for news that affects those casino sites and its players. NetEnt is one of them and has produced a lot of news items of late.

Biz News: NetEnt Chairman Erbing Reelected

To get the business news out of the way first, it’s important to note that NetEnt recently reelected Fredrik Erbing as its Chairman of the Board.

The elections happened at the recent Annual General Meeting and solidified Erbing’s position that he held since 2008. He also serves as Vice President of Swedish software company Acando AB.

Other board members reelected were Pontus Lindwall, Peter Hamberg, and Maria Redin. Newly-elected board members were Lisa Gunnarsson, Jonathan Pettemerides, and Christoffer Lundstrom.

The other activity at the meeting was the discharging of Therese Hillman’s liability for the 2018 financial year. Hillman serves on the Board of Directors and has been CEO since May 2018. Hillman commented that the Nordic countries and their new regulations, such as in Sweden, were responsible for much of the slowdown. This was apparent in the 3% revenue dip and 18% net profit loss in the first quarter of 2019.

New Game: Arcane Reel Chaos

In April, NetEnt released one of its most exciting titles in months. Arcane Reel Chaos offers up a world of the future, albeit a ravaged one, complete with a villain called Deep Pockets and heroes named Flare, Chronos, Zero.x, and Psyop trying to protect their city.

The 5-reel slot contains three rows and 20 paylines. It also offers numerous features in the form of super powers that belong to each of the heroes. Those features are stacked wilds (Psyop), overlay wilds (Zero.x), multipliers (Flare), and multiplying re-spins (Chrono), all of which can be used to beat Deep Pockets. Each mini-feature may appear randomly.

Arcane Reel Chaos also has free spins available, during which each hero battles the villain. The talisman that released the villain in the first place must appear on three reels (first, third, and fifth) to trigger the bonus. And with each victory is an increase of the betting line multiplier. If all four heroes beat the villain, the player wins a Sweet Victory bonus.

The bonus round is quite exciting, as every line win eats away at the villain’s power. However, every spin without a win allows Deep Pockets to gain ground. Action continues through spins until the heroes or Deep Pockets are defeated.

New Game: Dead or Alive 2

This sequel to the wildly popular Dead or Alive was developed in response to the fans asking for an updated and follow-up game. The Wild West comes alive with the sights and sounds in this game, all gearing up for a big showdown.

From the background to every pinging sound of a bullet, players are transported back in time. Five gunslingers serve as wilds, and the crossed guns are the scatters. Three or more of the scatters awards free spins.

At that point, there are three different types of bonus rounds. First is the Old Saloon feature, in which all wins are multiplied by two and any sticky wilds launch an extra five free spins. Second is High Noon, which makes all wild symbols into multiplier wilds. Train Heist is the third option, and any wild increases the multiplier by one and offers an additional free spin. Hitting a 16x multiplier adds another five spins.

Dead or Alive 2 is a high-volatility slot game online, but when the player reaches a feature, it makes the wait for it all worthwhile.

New Game: Wild Worlds

Another very unique slot game from the minds at NetEnt offers a good-versus-bad theme with monsters versus superheroes. The players depend on the bird characters to battle their way through the Dark Forest with spreading wilds, Ice World with heavy wilds, and Fire Lands with random wilds.

The 5×5 cluster match 3-slot is another unique offering, one with random bird forces and superpower wilds that lead to the wheel to determine how many spins and in which world they will take place.

During the bonus round, each bird hero has powers and garners more power from the results of the spins. By defeating the first round of monsters, the Boss Fight launches into a fight against the strongest monster. Destroying that monster launches the player into a new bonus round with eight new spins.

The bonus rounds can last a long time but rack up the wins, and it stays exciting and entertaining throughout the action.

Wild Worlds is truly unique, and there is rarely a dull moment in any part of the game.
