Founded back in 1996, NetEnt is one of a few software providers that have been in the business almost as long as the very first online casinos. The name is echoed throughout the industry as being one that pays utmost attention to detail, and which creates games that are not only exceptionally entertaining, but absolutely gorgeous. NetEnt products are known around the world, including Malta, India and the UK. What’s more, NetEnt games are now also available at a number of online casinos in Canada, including Platinum Play. Over the years, NetEnt has won numerous awards and accolades for their gaming creations, some of which we will take a closer look at below. Fabulous features, crisp audio accompaniment and impeccable graphics are all part of the NetEnt formula, and there’s a good chance one might just stumble across a new favourite when checking them out.
Top Titles From NetEnt
With more than 200 games under NetEnt’s belt, it is no easy feat trying to narrow down their selections to just a few top titles. But, given the diversity of our players at Platinum Play, we’ve scoured the sources and compiled a list of games that are sure to appeal to a wide range of palettes, each of which we will discuss in more detail below. So whether players prefer games with massive betting ranges and in-depth features, or straightforward, classic-style variations, they’re sure to find something they like. At a glance, the names that have made our list include Aloha! Cluster Pays™, Butterfly Staxx™, Guns N Roses Video Slots™, Jack and the Beanstalk™ and Joker Pro™. So, without further ado, let’s go about finding something to play.
Aloha! Cluster Pays™
No need to book expensive flights or hotels just to enjoy a bit of Hawaii. Aloha! Cluster Pays™ is an utterly delightful 5-reel, 6-row online casino game in Canada that makes use of the Cluster Pays™ mechanic. This means that there are no paylines to pay attention to, but rather, matching symbol combinations will form a cluster and vanish from the grid, leaving room for more symbols to land in their stead. Fitting, tropical-style music accompanies one’s playtime, while a cute Tiki character watches from the sidelines, and a volcano erupts with every winning spin. Pineapples, coconuts, Hibiscus flowers and seashells form part of the symbol selection, while various Tiki carvings can also come into play and up the ante by expanding over 2 symbol positions on any reel. Landing at least 3 Free Spins stamp symbols will trigger a round of Free Spins, during which Symbol Drops come into play, removing any low values from the reels. Other fun features to look out for include Sticky Win Re-Spins and Substitution Symbols. With a max bet of 200 credits, this is an online and mobile casino game worth checking out.
Another charming release, Butterlfy Staxx transports online casino fans in Canada to a fantastical nighttime scene where flowers bloom and butterflies glow. With 4 rows, 5 reels and 40 fixed paylines, there is plenty of room for fun on this release. The highest paying symbol is the titular butterfly, with other high value markers being differently coloured blooms in shades of red, blue and violet. The lower values, on the other hand, are represented by the standard J, Q, K and A symbols. The glowing Scatter symbol is the key to triggering a round of Butterfly Spins (a fancy name for Free Spins), and players will need just 3 in order to do so. Here, they’re likely to land little cocoon symbols, and have the opportunity to watch them burst open into fully-fledged adults. The game gets its name from the fact that the butterfly symbol can appear stacked on an entire reel, and when this happens, a Re-Spin will be triggered, which will see all of the butterflies flying to the leftmost position of the same row, as long as there isn’t already a butterfly there. What follows is a fluttering flurry of Re-Spins and butterflies swooping around the reels to help hit paying combinations.
Guns N’ Roses Video Slots™
They say rock never dies, and this is certainly the case when it comes to Guns ‘N Roses Video Slots™, an absolute foot-tapper of an online casino game. Canada, put your hands together for the class of 1985 and join Axl, Duff and Slash across 5 reels of musical mayhem. The reels are set against a live stage background, while the symbols include the aforementioned bandmates, guitar picks and the A, K, Q, J and 10 symbols adorned with roses. The band name logo is Wild, and has the ability to stack across the reels, substituting for paid symbols as it does. Landing 3 of the record Bonus symbol will trigger a bonus wheel, which will result in the activation of one of 3 Bonus features: Encore Free Spins, a cool Crowd-Pleaser Bonus minigame or coin wins. The Appetite for Destruction Wild can randomly appear in one of 3 positions, while Legend Spins can also occur at random. There is truly so much to enjoy across this online and mobile casino game that we recommend checking it out. If you’re a fan of the original band, even better!
Jack And The Beanstalk™
A classic tale gets an entertaining revamp across the reels of Jack and the Beanstalk™. This online and mobile casino game in Canada from NetEnt invites players to join Jack in his mischievous quest for the giant’s treasure. Fans of titles that pack a punch in terms of special in-game features are sure to enjoy this one, and we will give a brief overview of what one can expect to find when firing it up. As with any complex games, its best to give it a go for oneself to really experience the magic. Jack, a two-headed giant, a watering can, and axe and a goat make up the higher values in this 3x5-reel game, while the lower values (10, J, Q, K and A) have been rendered to look like they’re made out of beanstalk. 3 or more of the treasure chest Scatter will trigger a round of 10 Free Spins, while the game name logo is a Walking Wild, triggering a Re-Spin when it lands and moving one reel position to the left. The key symbol appears on reel 5, and collecting as many of these as you can will trigger a specific feature, including stacked money bags, stacked hens and expanding harps, each one with a special function. We won’t delve into too much nitty gritty here, and rather leave it to players to find out for themselves.
In contrast to the intricate games we’ve touched on above, Joker Pro™ is a great choice for those online casino fans in Canada who prefer simple, straightforward and streamlined selections. While this is a 3x5-reel online slot game with 10 paylines, it looks and feels like a classic 3-reel number, with symbols of diamonds, 7s, bars, horseshoes, bells and clovers. The joker’s hat is the Scatter, and only one is needed to trigger a round of Joker Pro Re-Spins. Here, reels 1 and 5 will become Wild, as will any joker’s hats that began the round. What’s more, 3 Hot Spots will appear in the middle of the reels, offering up incredible Multiplier potential, depending on which symbols land within them. While the game may look and feel basic, the entertainment factor here is everything but!
