NetEnt or Net Entertainment is a market leader in online casino slot development right now; probably no one would argue about that. Even though the competition is getting tougher with the likes of Yggdrasil, Microgaming and Play'N Go stepping up their game and raising the quality bar, we still have to admit that there's no other company on the market like NetEnt.
This giant has been in the gaming industry for the last 20 years, and up to this day, they keep coming up with new entertaining, beautiful, high-quality slots on a practically weekly basis.
Today we want to present you our overview of NetEnt's most popular games - starting from older classic and finishing with the newer cool releases. So without further ado and in no particular order, let's jump into it.
Starburst released in 2012 turned out to be one of the most popular slot games ever, not only by NetEnt but on the slot market in general. Get ready for some colourful gems and stars and 80-s disco music in this rather simplistic but extremely likeable slot. Starburst is a 5-reels and 10-lines arcade-style game with a jackpot of £50,000 and features like win both ways, re-spins, stacked symbols and the special Starburst Wild feature. The popularity of this slot is probably also due to the fact that a lot of online casinos give away free spins specifically for Starburst. And since the game is quite fun and addictive, the slot will probably stay on top of the charts for a very long time.
Twin Spin is another classic - released in 2013 the game gives an impression of a simple, old-school, retro slot machine in your typical Las Vegas style. The symbols include cherries, bells, sevens, bells, diamonds and gold bars as well as standard card symbols. The slot offers players 243 ways to win and is one of the most attractive and timeless games out there. There is a unique Twin Reel feature which is meant to help you increase the win ratio - with every spin, a minimum of 2 reels lock up together and stop on identical symbols. Twin Spin slot has a return to player of 96.6%, and a hit rate is set to 27.8%. You can win a maximum jackpot of 270,000 coins in this game.
In this 2010 beautiful 3D slot, you will go on an epic adventure with the legendary Spanish conquistador Gonzalo Pizarro (Gonzo) in search for the gold of the mythical lost city of Eldorado. The game got a Platinum status and has a cult following among casino players from different countries. One of the distinguishing features of the slot is the Avalanche feature. With this feature, you don't spin the wheels, but instead, the symbols are falling dramatically from above in an avalanche style. The return to player is not very high at 96%, but you get hits 41% of the time, which is what a lot of players like. A maximum win in Gonzo's Quest is £93,750.
Based on a classic British fairy tale, Jack and the Beanstalk slot was released in 2011 and since then stays on top of the popular NetEnt slots in most online casinos in the world. Meet poor but cheeky boy Jack, who kills the two-headed giant and steals his treasures including the golden goose and singing harp. This 5×3 reels and 20 pay lines slot has an unusual NetEnt feature called Walking Wild. What it means is that the wild symbol jumps to the left of the reels while giving you a re-spin. In total, you can get a maximum of 5 re-spins before the wild symbols "walks off" the screen. There is also a Treasure Collection Feature in the jolly and cheerful Jack and the Beanstalk slot when a huge golden key symbol unlocks some extra cool bonuses.
The Hall of Gods slot is a progressive jackpot game that created a lot of millionaires since its release in 2010. It is based on Nordic myths and features Norse gods such as Thor, Freya, Loki and Odin. The slot has 5-reels, 3 rows and 15 paylines and there are 3 separate jackpots: Mini Jackpot of 1,100, Midi Jackpot of 80,000 and Mega Jackpot of 6,300,000. Look out for the exciting Bonus Symbol with a shield and Thor’s hammer - if you manage to score 3 of those on the reels, you will be able to enter the bonus game and smash the shields with the hammer to reveal some sweet prizes.
If you're into some vampire action and like TV series and films like True Blood, The Vampire Diaries and The Twilight, you will probably enjoy this 2009 slot release from NetEnt. This scary slot has another thing going for it - the highest return to player ever of 98%. It just doesn't get higher than this; that's why the slot stays mega-popular for seven years already even among those players who are not into blood-sucking monsters at all.

Pick up one of the 12 coffins and stab the sleeping vampire with a wooden stake right in the heart. There will be loads of blood, just warning you. The maximum jackpot you can win in this slot is 7,500 times your stake.

On the background you will see the picturesque Hawaiian sunset, an active volcano and many palm trees with the beautiful tropical symbols like pineapples, coconuts, shells, tropical flowers and Tiki masks.

The latest release from NetEnt yet is a jolly Theme Park: Tickets of Fortune slot. The game has a slightly childish fairground theme, but the design and bonus features of the slot are absolutely excellent. We have to honestly admit that we are rarely as impressed by the new slot game launch. The game is very colourful and funky with the symbols on the reels including rockets, duck boats, ponies, carousels, planes and roller coasters. The bonus features will take you back to your childhood when you went to the funfair and played at the stands like Bonus Wheel, Punch Bag Game, Sledge Hammer, Can Tower kiosk, Skee Ball, Go Fishing and Duck Shoot. The game is extremely dynamic, visually pleasing and hides a non-progressive jackpot of £75,000.
