NetEnt Conquers USA Gambling Markets and Launches 2 New Games
After publishing 2019 interim report that revealed slightly disappointing figures across the Nordic markets, NetEnt shows no signs of weakness, entering the USA market by storm and launching two new jackpot games – Grand Spinn and Grand Spinn Superpot.
The Pennsylvania Market Finally Live
It was a long haul for the residents of Pennsylvania, but the Keystone State has finally launched its first online gambling markets after legalizing internet gambling in October 2017. NetEnt is among the first software providers to catch the wave, and after a series of integrations, the developer is officially live across the Pennsylvanian online casinos.
The company acted fast and was ready to conquer the new market months before the online gambling became available to Pennsylvania residents; earlier this year, the company’s subsidiary NetEnt Americas LLC acquired the Interactive Gaming Manufacturer Conditional License, granted by the PGCB (Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board).
Eric Nyman, the Managing Director at NetEnt Americas LLC, has confirmed that the company signed several supply deals, and the players in Pennsylvania will soon be able to enjoy NetEnt’s award-winning live dealer software (among other games).
Two New Jackpot Slots
As stated during Hillman’s presentation of the 2019 interim report, the goal for this year is to release a total of 30 – 35 new games. The supplier is already coming dangerously close to that number, launching two additional jackpot slots this month.
Once again, the creative team has drawn inspiration from Art Deco design style and Grand Spinn editions feature a unique 1920’s vibe. Bryan Upton, the company’s Director of Games, stated that the slots are NetEnt’s response to the growing need for “simple yet entertaining” games, the two qualities he feels are captured in the Grand Spinn series.
Together with Microgaming, NetEnt remains one of the leading suppliers when it comes to progressive jackpot slots. The Mega Fortune remains Mega Moolah’s strongest rival, but it still behind Microgaming’s iconic release, which has paid out close to C$130M in the first half of the year.
For the time being, Mega Moolah is winning on all fronts – the seed amount, (over a million as opposed to Mega Fortune’s 300K), the average jackpot, and the time interval between the two hits. It should be interesting to see if the Grand Spinn slots will mark a new era for progressive jackpot hunters and end the (so far) undisputed reign of Microgaming.
Those who are tempted to see if Grand Spinn has what it takes to overthrow the renowned “millionaire-maker” can test the game at Leo Vegas casino.
