Playtech is well-known for providing Marvel-themed slots like Spiderman, Daredevil, The Incredible Hulk, etc. They provide a mass appeal for slots and table games players with an emphasis on impressive numbers of games available and trustable familiar graphics. NetEnt is better known for innovation and unique game play, boosting the overall playing experience.  With a reputation to protect and new challenges to overcome, both software providers are in the market to make waves this year.

Playtech have given new meaning to cross-channel capabilities with their new omni-channel game, Tiki Paradise, complete with special features, allowing players to play slots games on a cell phone and then unlock opportunities, in-shop for days after you play.

Not to be outdone, NetEnt released the Emoji slot reacting to the overwhelming use of emoji, worldwide and appealing simultaneously to the youth market.  Emoji and NetEnt are an interesting team, as both try hard to keep abreast of current trends.
