Flash No More: NetEnt Makes Transition to HTML5Published December 25, 2017 by Ivan P
Soon, all of NetEnt slots as well as their table games and video poker machines will be fully transitioned to HTML5, completely removing any need for Flash.
When it first came into existence, Flash technology was quite revolutionary and gave various game developers, including the online casino industry, new opportunities. However, similar to what happens to most things in the world of IT technologies, Flash has become outdated with the introduction of new HTML5 technology.
Some internet browsers have already stopped supporting Flash, with more of them to follow in the upcoming period. This has caused one of the leading developers of casino gaming solutions, NetEnt, to put in serious efforts to transition all of their games to HTML5 preparing for the inevitable.
70+ Titles Already Transitioned
NetEnt seems determined to keep up the pace with technological developments and ensure continued access to their gaming titles for their vast player base. The company has already transferred more than 70 of their most popular titles to the HTML5 platform, with more games to follow shortly. These titles are also available for mobile play across various devices.
HTML5 technology is the next big step in the gaming industry, as it allows for better graphics, animations, and sounds, which results in a better overall experience for the players. For NetEnt, it is essential to go along with the times and continues providing top-quality gaming solutions their players are accustomed to.
Leading the Way
The company is one of the first to tackle the transition to the HTML5 on a large scale with serious plans to have all of their titles soon available via the new platform, completely removing any need for Flash. They've started with their popular slots segment and table games, but other products such as video poker are soon to follow.
Henrik Fagerlund, NetEnt's Chief Product Officer, emphasizes it is of the utmost importance for the company to stay on track and continue to offer the ultimate gaming experience to their players. According to him, keeping up with the times is what NetEnt needs to do to maintain its position as one of the leaders in the highly competitive world of casino game developers.
