It’s time to see the results for 2017. Netent has taken out a calculator to do the accounts for 2017 and in particular for its progressive jackpots. The developer specialising in 3D slot machines paid out 78.3 million euros to players just for its progressive jackpots. With 321 progressive jackpots won in 2017, Netent made many players very happy and that’s not counting those who won on traditional or video slot machines. Live Dealers Casino brings you more on Netent’s record year for progressive jackpots and Netent’s live gaming tables.
321 jackpots won in 2017 on 4 Netent progressive slot machines
In 2017, 321 Netent progressive jackpots displayed the winning combination on its slot machines either Mega Fortune, Hall of Gods, Mega Fortune Dreams or Arabian Nights. Netent has 4 progressive jackpots and last year they made hundreds of players happy. The leader among these progressive jackpots is the Mega Fortune slot machine which paid out 30.4 million euros to winners. Even taking that into account, this slot machine hasn’t been the most generous, that honour goes to the Hall of Gods slot machine with 7.5 million won in June 2017. Netent’s slot machines along with its progressive jackpots are among the best in the industry. Netent does have a strong competitor in Microgaming. In fact there are more Microgaming progressive jackpots than Netent and they pay out more.
Netent Live trailing behind the slot machines
Netent’s slot machines are doing very well. Several operators offer the Swedish group’s one arm bandits to their players. On the other hand, Netent Live, which is the software specialising in live dealer tables has been slow to take off. Since the developer Netent Live launched its live tables, very few online casinos are using them. It must be said that Netent Live is only offering operators online roulette and blackjack tables and up to now live baccarat tables haven’t been made available. In recent years, several bitcoin casinos have gone with Evolution Gaming rather than Netent Live. This has happened with mBit Casino and Bitstarzwhich now offer live roulette, baccarat and blackjack tables from Evolution Gaming.
Maybe in 2018 Netent will bring out online baccarat tables. Netent’s progressive jackpots were generous in 2017 so let’s wait for the round up at the beginning of 2019 to see how it was in 2018.
