Introduction And History To NetEnt Gaming:
Although the Company NetEnt itself was established in 1996, the history of the company actually goes back to 1963 to a brick and mortar casino called Cherryföretagen which was founded by Bill Lindwall and Rolf Lundström. In 1968, a partnership was established with AB Roulett konsult & Spelautomater, founded by Per Hamberg and Lars Kling and in 1972 the name Cherry was registered, with the cherry logo.
They were a big operation and very well known until Sweden banned Pokie Games, resulting in Cherry having to change its whole business model within a month. In 1984 Cherry bought out some of the smaller Swedish Gaming Companies and started providing pokie games to East European Countries until 1991. In 1992 Cherry decided to close down in Eastern Europe and the CEO at the time – Pontus Lindwall ( who was Bill Lindwall’s son ) decided to start developing Gaming software for the internet which had recently come about. In 1996 he managed to convince Cherry and Kinnevik, one of the largest listed investment companies in Europe, to invest 75 million SEK, towards the development of NetEnt.
NetEnt (Formerly Known as Net Entertainment) originally started in Sweden 1996 and is listed on the Stockholm Stock Exchange. NetEnt’s headquarters are situated in Luntmakargatan, Stockholm and their current CEO is Per Eriksson.
NetEnt was one of the first software developers to produce online gambling solutions and originally had 4 of their own online casinos but sold them in 2005 when they decided to focus solely on creating state of the art HD casino games plus a full management system.
The good news about NetEnt not owning any online casinos means that there is no conflict of interest or the need to create rigged software, which allows NetEnt to focus on what they do best – Create State of the Art gaming solutions and games! At the time of this review there was more than 100 casinos using NetEnt software and there was over 200 games available.
