Bet365 has snapped up two recently released NetEnt mobile casino games. NetEnt, which is licensed and regulated in the UK is a leading supplier of premium B2B digital casino systems and games. The two uniquely themed games are titled Sparks and Magic Portals. Magical Portals is a game of 5 reels, 3 rows and 25 paylines. The theme of Magic Portals is that of an ancient magical world exemplified by magical characters like wizards and warlocks. Some of the magical symbols and glitz that can be seen moving around the screen during play include fire, ice and lightning. Players can get free spins by turning in matching wild symbols. The other attractive thing about this game is the jackpot offer that promises a payout of up to 64,000 coins. The game is enhanced to play on the mobile platform, which means it can be played on the go, or at the player’s convenience. Magic Portals resembles other top NetEnt video slots such as Frankenstein, Space Wars and Dragon Island.
The game of Sparks features a colorful theme that is jam-packed with unique and outstanding patterns and lights. This game of 5 reels 3 rows and 20 paylines offers players an option to engage in two modes of play, which are regular and win both ways. Players who prefer to play the win both ways mode can win by making varying combinations from left to right and vice versa. The regular or standard mode of play, on the other hand is particularly suitable for players who prefer a more subdued tempo of play. Sparks offers a wide spectrum of features including the Expanding Cloning Wild option that allows players to play the wild symbols on certain reels in order to create additional winning opportunities. The highly enticing Sparks jackpot can reach up to 80,000 coins, which promises a huge payout in return. This thrilling and captivating video slot promises a charged gaming experience for any players willing to stake their chances at the reels.
The eagerly awaited inclusion of Sparks and Magic Portals comes at a time when Bet365 is increasing its tally of new games. The additions will see NetEnt move in to join other gaming providers such as Microgamming, Playtech and IGT who already feature in various Bet365 gaming platforms. The release of Sparks and Magic Portals on Bet365 is also testament to NetEnt intentions to go into lengths to satisfy the needs of players and its growing base of casino clients. In a related development, Gaming Intelligence news portal reports that on 16 June, 2015 NetEnt entered into a binding agreement with William Hill to launch its first land based games on the bookmaker’s platform. The announcement will see William Hill players play some of the most popular NetEnt gaming titles such as Starburst in retail shops across the UK. The CEO of NetEnt, Per Eriksson acknowledged that the agreement with William Hill was very positive for business, considering the fact that William Hill is UK’s largest gaming and betting operator.
The distribution agreement also opens the door for NetEnt to further explore the casino market on mobile, desktop and retail channels. In May, NetEnt sealed a US patent cross-licensing agreement with IGT. NetEnt hopes the deal will help it get a foothold on the fast growing North America iGaming market. NetEnt also plans to enter the highly competitive New Jersey online gaming market in the US; the company has already laid down plans to get the games live before the end of the year. The growth of the mobile casino gaming platforms in recent years has forced NetEnt to avail its games across different platforms including Android, iOS and Windows mobile devices. This development has seen NetEnt release desktop and mobile based games at the same time in order to meet the cross-platform demand. NetEnt’s gaming portfolio spans 200 plus games with some of the highest payouts in the industry. The games include video slots, keno, jackpot, table games, lottery and mini-games.
