An update was reported in March, with NetEnt that started the process with Red Tiger Gaming and important restructuring plans. There will be relocation of staff and also resources and this means that 120 full-time positions are going.
Therese stated that NetEnt is now entering a new phase when it comes to the integration of Red Tiger, and their sellers are also becoming shareholders of NetEnt. This integration will unleash the complete potential of both companies’ capabilities, it will create significant gains regarding games development and also strengthen their position as the market leader, which has been completely natural over the years.
However, on the client’s side, it’s easy to see the beginning of the results from this partnership. This said, it’s possible to see that there’s has been an arrival of a new game that was developed by NetEnt via Red Tiger studios, which is Gonzo’s Quest Megaways. This release was definitely interesting, especially because no one was expecting this studio partnership and that was surely a surprise.
Gonzo’s Quest is definitely one of the NetEnt’s flagship games, which has joined Startburst, and they’ve become highly popular around the world and, especially, really successful amongst players. Released in 2011, Gonzo’s Quest was seen as a innovative game when it was released, and it became a favorite of many live casino operators who would later use this game as a call to attention for players, especially when it comes to welcome bonuses and also promotions.
Something that’s very interesting about this new game that NetEnt and Red Tiger developed is the fact that that it’s the “Megaways” genre of slot game. This type of slot was created by Big Time Gaming and offers 1000s of winning combos each spin. It’s definitely an incredible concept, especially when a brand wants to make a different game. When it comes to an estimate, there are about 80 Megaways games available these days, that were developed by many developers that you might know.
There’s something that’s essential to understand here and that is that NetEnt has, basically, put one of its best games in the hands of Red Tiger and, therefore, trusted their new partner to take care of the game and also to launch it into important areas of important areas of modern online casino. This game has been well received by players, which was to be expected.
Most importantly, it’s likely to see NetEnt begin to dominate in the daily jackpot arena. While Gonzo’s Quest Megaways is, without any doubt, an impressive game, it feels like NetEnt could developed this game without Red Tiger. This is especially true since NetEnt was able to create another Megaways game called Twin Spin, which is also very popular.
Maybe you think that one of the deal-breakers for the acquisition of Red Tiger was their expertise regarding jackpot games. NetEnt has some fine progressive jackpot games such as Mega Fortune or Hall of Gods but never made an impression when it comes to the daily jackpot genre. A daily jackpot is a game that has an ever-growing prize that needs to be won by a certain time, or until it reaches a specific amount of money.
