NetEnt changes to HTML5Slot machines have been around for many years. As long as they've been around, creators of these popular casino games have been finding new ways to improve them.

After evolving from the humble one-armed bandit in land-based casinos to a basic online slot, the industry started to boom with innovative ideas. Many online slots started out as being designed entirely to run on Flash. Most internet browsers supported Flash and this was the normal way for many basic games and videos to be enjoyed.

In recent years, there's been a shift in how the internet accesses different content including online casino games.


NetEnt upgrades slots

One of the top online slot software providers in the world is NetEnt. Originally Net Entertainment, these slot creators have hundreds of games in their library. 

Due to the way most games were created, a shift was needed and NetEnt has now released their games in HTML5 format. This format is user-friendly and much lighter to run than Flash, which means it works perfectly on most desktop and mobile devices!

NetEnt has finally decided that now is the perfect opportunity to make the move from Flash to HTML5 on a total of 70 classic casino games. For those games which didn't support mobile devices, NetEnt has also ensured that they can now also be enjoyed on the go.

Henrik Fagerlund, Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, commented on the shift saying: “This is an exciting time as we expand our technological reach and it is crucial we are able to give players the chance to keep playing their favourite games. We just recently released upgrades for four of our classic titles: Dracula, Jackpot 6000, Excalibur, Spellcast."

“Given the growth of mobile gaming, we have to continue establishing ourselves as an industry leader by making these advancements and moving with the times,” Fagerlund continued.
