NetEnt Begins Transition to HTML5 Content

NetEnt to only feature HTML5 games

Net Entertainment announce transition from flash to HTML5.

During the early 2000s, Flash became a dominant platform when it came to game developing. It was also a revolutionary technology that gave a whole new world of opportunities for the online casino industry. More than a decade and a half later, Flash has not only become outdated, but it’s slowly being abandoned.

Official end-of-life for Flash is scheduled for 2020, and by then it is expected it would completely be replaced by the new HTML5 technology.

A number of internet browsers have already ceased supporting Flash, with more to follow in the months and years to come. Game developers will also have to adjust to the new situation and prepare for the inevitable end of once the most popular platform for online multimedia content.

As one of the biggest names in the online gambling industry, the Sweden-based developer NetEnt is putting serious effort to transition its extensive portfolio of games to HTML5.

Transition In Progress

NetEnt has already expressed its intention to keep the company’s offer updated with the latest technological developments and to ensure its customers will have access to all the titles in its portfolio, the developer has given a top priority to the transition to HTML5 platform.

So far, more than 70 titles have been transferred to HTML5, with even more games to follow in the near future. These games are already available across all platforms

There’s no doubt that HTML5 technology represents a huge step forward in the gaming industry, and that developers around the world will have to move fast and update their offer. The players will also see the benefits of the new platform since it will allow better graphics, animations, and sound, which in turn will create a far better playing experience.

NetEnt Leads the Way

NetEnt was one of the first developers to address the question of the large-scale transition to HTML5. The company plans to transfer its entire portfolio to the new platform, which will completely remove any need for Flash.

The first to start the transition were the company’s video slots and table games, while other products will soon follow.

Commenting on this step, NetEnt Chief Product Officer Henrik Fagerlund said the transition to HTML5 was an essential move which would offer the ultimate gaming experience to customers worldwide, adding it was important to keep up with the times.
