NetEnt celebrates 20 years in Business
Founded in 1996 by two entrepreneur Bill Lindwall and Pontus Lindwall NetEnt’s road to success has not been a straightforward one. Let us take a moment and look at NetEnt’s history and events that contributed to the company’s success. NetEnt made its modest debut with only 3 employees in a small office on the outskirt of Stockholm in Skeppargatan. Just a few years after being created the company was in serious financial trouble as the co-founder Pontus Lindwall admit. “The turn of the millennium was especially difficult for our organisation we had to make a lot of good employees redundant due to financial difficulties. At some point, we were also looking to give the company away but nobody wanted it.”
2002 marked a turning point for NetEnt
After launching its first online casino in 2002, the phoenix rose from the ashes. This online casino gave the company a great window to show to the world their superior game products. After this, casino operators started demonstrating an interest in publishing NetEnt games. The company is now publicly listed on the Stockholm Stock Exchange Market. They are also the owner of several renown awards for the excellence of their products and visionary approach.
”NetEnt is all about the people” said the co-founder Bill Lindwall.
Embracing cultural diversity has paid off for NetEnt. With 900 talented people working in their offices in Malta, Ukraine, Gibraltar, United-States of America, Poland, and Stockholm offices everyone brings a unique approach to game creation. But also, each individual immensely contributed to give NetEnt it’s true pioneer reputation when it comes to the game mechanic and business intelligence. NetEnt now offers 3D video Slots, Live Casino, and bingo. Their games can be found many online casinos like Rizk, InstaCasino, Casumo and Leo Vegas.
