NetEnt Releases Game-Changing Widget for the FIFA World Cup

NetEnt adds yet another way in which players can immerse themselves in the World Cup and casino games simultaneously

There are many great names when it comes to game providers in Canada. But, it’s safe to say that NetEnt is the most World Cup crazy. Over the last couple of months, NetEnt has revealed two new widgets. The first was the live scores widget for their slot games. The next was the Live Sports Roulette. This features match updates in real time while the dealers chat about the games. Now, the third widget has arrived: NetEnt Live’s Sports Betting Widget.

NetEnt continues to unveil new ways for their players to keep up with the World Cup while enjoying games. The Sports Betting Widget will help to immerse gamers in the World Cup. It will also bring together the audience of casino gamers and sports bettors.

NetEnt’s shiny new Sports Betting Widget

Netent World CupNetEnt is going through a period of change. But you wouldn’t know it from the outside. The fan-favourite games provider in Canada continues to innovate. The NetEnt Live Sports Betting Widget is an industry-first. Never before have sports betting and live casino gaming been integrated in this way.

Chroma key technology powers these new features that have been released in line with the World Cup. Chroma key works similarly to cinematic special effects. It allows different backdrops to be shown behind people and foreground items.

Henrik Fagerlund, Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, is very excited for its launch. He says that it is unlike any other product on the market. It also comes at a very exciting time, with the World Cup mere weeks away. Furthermore, it’s a cross-sell opportunity as players can enjoy games and betting simultaneously.

The first operator to sign up to the Sports Betting Widget is Stoiximan. But, there’s no doubt that Canadian favourites will add it soon. At the top NetEnt casinos in Canada, NetEnt Live games are very popular. Sports betting is also very popular at casinos with integrated bookmakers. So, this looks to become very popular in Canada.

NetEnt getting in the summer spirit

NetEnt has been busy making headlines with its live score and betting widgets. With the World Cup on the horizon, these additions were always going to be well met. But it’s not just widgets that NetEnt has been building.

Most recently, NetEnt bolstered their massive slot game offering with Jumanji. The latest branded game in the NetEnt library has been a huge hit in Canada. The old theme appeals to fans of the original movie. But the innovative gameplay appeals to the newer fans of the remake.

It looks as though NetEnt and the World Cup will go hand-in-hand throughout the summer.
