NetEnt Pushing Forward with Mobile Leading the Line
There are several names in the online gaming industry that keep pushing the boundaries and exploring new landscapes of the limitless iGaming sky.
One such name is NetEnt, a Sweden-based developer, and supplier of top-class slot games which are considered to be some of the most advanced in the business.
The company has earlier this month published the second-quarter financial result which revealed an increase in revenues of $49 million, or 15.5% year-on-year and the company CEO Per Eriksson has opened up on NetEnt’s plans for the upcoming period.
Eriksson revealed that NetEnt plans to develop their future games with a ‘mobile-first’ mindset, given the fact the company’s mobile sector accounts for more than half of the total revenues. The mobile games are a huge contributor to company’s growth and NetEnt plan to tap in on the positive influx.
“NetEnt was one of the pioneers in the mobile casino space. Since we started our mobile development, we have been driving the mobile casino industry forward through a large number of inventions that the industry is following. We are developing all our games with a ‘mobile-first’ mindset. That is the major reason for our success.”, Eriksson said.
The second quarter numbers boost also came as a direct result of NetEnt signing agreements with six new customers and launching games on eight new customer platforms. The company is looking forward the future endeavors, claiming the future remains bright for the remainder of 2017.
With conditions for continued solid growth all set and met, NetEnt plans to further develop its operations through new games, increased market share in the UK and further expansion into the North American landscape.
“We will strengthen the organization to increase our output capacity, enter more regulated markets and integrate a large number of new customers. With this in mind, we foresee an ongoing need to invest during the rest of 2017.”, Eriksson concluded.
