Net Entertainment Live Casino Software

netent live casino

The NetEnt Live Casino was first launched in beta form in early 2013 and comes with just two games Live Blackjack and Live Roulette.

Both can be played on Mobile and Desktop.

Net Entertainment was founded in 1996 by a leading Scandinavian land based casino company.

They are well known as a developer of online slots more than anything else, although they develop a range of gaming solutions that include table games, video poker, lottery, virtual horse racing and keno.

The NetEnt Live Casino studio is located in Malta, which is also home to a number of other Live Casino developers.

The studio has been built with the latest technologies, which allows NetEnt to provide a slightly different solution to their competitors.

Their main USP is the adoption of Green Screen/Chroma Key technologies, which allows them to present tables with different backgrounds and environments without the need for expensive building costs.

This has sort of become NetEnt’s USP, which distinguishes them from other studios where you see lots of physical tables in large dealing rooms.

Other characteristics of the NetEnt Live Casino solution include:

  • High definition video streaming with low latency, to reduce the lagging that you sometimes get when playing.
  • Tables that are open 24/7.
  • The ability for casinos to brand the tables using the latest Chroma Key Technology.
  • Use of the latest gaming equipment to ensure faster game rounds, eg. use of the Shufflemaster dealing shoe in Blackjack.
  • Support for 27 currencies and 24 languages.
  • Native English, Italian, Dutch, German, Italian and Norwegian speaking dealers.
  • Automatic and dealer hosted tables.
  • Easy integration with the other Net Entertainment products & Back Office solutions.
  • Dedicated 7 Seat Blackjack tables.
  • Perfect Pairs and 21+3 Side Bets on Blackjack.
  • The ability to play on Desktop and Mobile Devices.
  • Branded game environments, where tables are co branded with slots or sporting events, offering players additional experiences while playing at the tables.
  • Ability to offer cross game promotions, like free spins on slots.
  • Access to the unique Live Beyond Live Virtual Live Casino Lobby.

The Games

2 live games are currently offered by NetEnt.  Blackjack and Roulette, they both come in a number of different variations.

Each of the games come with the following playing rules.

  • 8 Decks are used and are changed when the shoes is about 50% through.
  • The dealer only takes one card, this is European Rules.
  • Insurance is offered on a Dealer Ace.
  • You can double on any hand value and also on Splits.
  • Only one additional card is dealt to split Aces.
  • You can take even money on a Blackjack if the dealer is showing an Ace.

Live Blackjack

Blackjack comes in three formats:

  • Blitz Blackjack – Only one hand is dealt that an unlimited number of players can bet on. Other players decisions have no impact on your hand. A manual dealing shoe is used with 8 decks. 21+3 and Perfect Pairs Side Bets.
  • 7 seat Blackjack -This is a more traditional version of Blackjack where only 7 seats are available. You’re dealt your own hand. Manual dealing shoes are used on the tables. Side bets are available. Play to Euro Rules only.
  • Perfect Blackjack – This is a one to many game that is controlled entirely by the dealer. The player places a bet, then the dealer plays each hand out to perfect basic strategy. There’s options to Auto Split and Auto Double. Side Bets of Perfect Pairs and 21+3 are optional.

Live Roulette

There’s several different versions of Live Roulette at NetEnt.

  • European Roulette.
  • Themed European Roulette.
  • Automatic Roulette.

All of the games come with a Racetrack and the ability to save your favourite bets. You can opt to see other players chips, but I’d advise against that at busy times, as you won’t be able to see the betting grid!

Automatic Roulette is for players that like a quicker game. It’s a real wheel, but instead of using a dealer compressed air is used to fire the ball into the wheel and a laser is used to read the winning number.

Mobile Live Casino

I’m rather surprised that I’m saying this but the mobile live casino is very good indeed.

Themed Tables

NetEnt has the ability to create themed tables for promotional purposes.

Quite often Prize draws are offered where players can earn tickets for the draw by just playing at a particular table.

Free spins are also offered so you’ll sometimes find that a table has been themed with a popular slot, like Starburst.

You earn free spins for hitting certain milestones when playing at the table.

It’s a promotional tool and one that NetEnt does particularly well.

Live Beyond Live

netent Live casino live beyond live

This is NetEnt’s major development for 2018.  It’s a virtual Lobby for Live Casino games.

Tables can be accessed by virtually walking through the lobby. You can see other tables and virtual people and helicopters. Clicking on a table loads the playing interface and away you go.

The concept was developed in collaboration with Mr Green, so some of the features being displayed in early 2018 are for Mr Green only.

The lobby went on more general release in 2019, with only a few online casinos taking it up. Most seem to prefer the older style lobby which under went a make over in mid 2019.

Summary

Netent has let their Live Casino product slide over the past few years.

It’s something they acknowledged in late 2018, when they worked in collaboration with Mr Green to create the Live beyond Live lobby.

Peroanlly I always thought it to be a bit gimmicky, which has sort of been proven by a rather poor up take of the technology in that form.

However NetEent started to get serious about Live Casino in early 2019, with the appointment of Andres Rengifo as Head of Live Casino.

Andres has a strong pedigree in Live Casino and has put together a development program to refresh the live casino and breathe life into their USP of the Green Screen technology.

Playing Interfaces have been standardised with a number of additional changes to both Blackjack and Roulette to highlight their strengths.

The new Branded Casino product is set to enhance the offering, which will allow operators to brand tables and environments without a huge outlay.

New games are on the horizon (2019/2020) that will see Netent become a more competitive force and a more viable option for players.

I spoke with Andres in October 2019 and wrote this update on the latest changes to NetEnt Live.
