Swedish slot specialists NetEnt in HTML5 upgrade
NetEnt, a Swedish online casino games developer, has always tried to be ahead of things and the announcer of major changes in the iGaming world.
The popular software developer has announced that it will not be supporting Flash for much longer and that they started converting their games to the HTML5 format.
Why HTML5 instead of Adobe Flash?
NetEnt said in a statement that the support for Flash media is coming to an end and that large company browser suppliers have publicly announced they will no longer support that technology.
This motivated NetEnt to turn to a new technology supported by browsers and now a total of 70 top-performing NetEnt titles are available in HTML5. Mobile versions of upgraded desktop games are also included and now the players can enjoy their favourite NetEnt games whether they are at home or on the go.
The HTML5 format offers superior quality to players’ experience since it delivers better graphics, sound and animation.
HTML5 is the latest standard of the Hyper Text Markup Language that is used to create websites, published in 2014. It is the core component of creating content for websites unlike the Adobe Flash that was a third-party addition.
Adobe Flash has a few strong disadvantages. It puts an extra strain on computers and causes havoc on mobile batteries. The format was also a hot target for thieves and criminals to attack computers and devices and web browsers couldn’t ignore this weakness any longer. Adobe even started working on creating HTML5 services itself.
Better Player Experience
This switch will not only save batteries and improve your safety online, but will also give NetEnt free time to focus on quality rather than quantity. With HTML5 format, they will be able to create a single version of the game that will work both on desktop and mobile products and not duplicate work as they did previously.
NetEnt has been reworking their most popular games for several years now since they didn’t want to simply abandon them and players with Flash threat around the corner. Besides the recent new slots that were instant smash hits – Planet of the Apes and Emoji Planet – NetEnt users will enjoy four new upgrades: Dracula, Jackpot 6000, Excalibur and Spellcast that are almost set to be upgraded.
NetEnt upgraded slot segments as well as table games. The newer version of video poker has also been upgraded and specific games such as baccarat coming soon.
NetEnt surely took an active approach to changes and provided a smooth transition to HTML5 in order not to inconvenience players.
