Net Entertainment (NetEnt) began life as Cherry, one of the top brick-and-mortar casinos in Scandinavia. When the country imposed a blanket ban on slots, Cherry had to alter its course. In order to save itself from a possible downfall, the company acquired a number of gambling companies to form a brand new group. Although it supplied slots to companies based in Europe, it soon realized that it can survive only by going online. Accordingly, Cherry was re-branded as Net Entertainment in the year 1996. Today, it is one of the major suppliers of online casino gaming software and online casino games in the industry.
NetEnt is the winner of several industry awards, including three eGR Awards for innovation in providing slots, mobile games, and mobile casino software in June 2015. The provider has also won eGR Awards in 2014, the IGA Innovator of the Year Award, the Global Gaming Awards Digital Gaming Innovation of the Year 2014, EGR B2B hat-trick awards of 2013, and EGR’s Best Innovation in RNG Casino Software Award for 2011.
