Flash to HTML5: Netent Finally Leaps into the Modern Era

Netent is probably the most pioneering and innovative casino software developer of all-time, known across the world. Their games make use of unique gameplay mechanics (like when they introduced Cluster Pays) and run with higher-quality graphics than anything else on the market.

Paradoxically, they also host their games through Flash, an outdated platform which no new developers would dare to touch. This means games aren’t natively optimised for mobile play (the fastest-growing gambling platform) and they don’t run as quickly as you’d expect.

But times, they are are a-changin’. Netent has made the switch to HTML5!

What is HTML5?

HTML5 is a different software platform that’s much lighter and faster than Flash, meaning games can be hosted and run much more smoothly. Even better, games designed on HTML5 are optimised for mobile or tablet play in addition to the default desktop option.

Over 70 slots have just been switch to the new platform already, and it’s only a matter of time until the whole catalogue makes the transition.

A Timely Move

Speaking about the change, Chief Product Office at Netent said:

“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. 

“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.”
