Many of the leading online and mobile casino software providers have been releasing their financial results over recent days and weeks and it is no surprise to see that the overall economic climate is having something of an impact even on the gaming industry. Net Entertainment is certainly not immune to such happenings although there are plenty of signs of encouragement for fans of their excellent range of mobile casino games.
While some results were undoubtedly not what the company was hoping for, the entire financial report can nonetheless be considered to be somewhat strong, kicking off simply with an increase in revenues over the same period in 2012. Revenues increased by 12.6% over the period which is of course encouraging, although some of the growth was offset by a significant rise in operating costs. The second quarter is traditionally seen as the lowest season in the industry, although NetEnt still saw their revenues rise from SEK 132 million to SEK 147.8 million. The aforementioned operating expenses increased by 19%.
Per Eriksson makes regular appearances here on the news pages of MobileCasino.net and he was on hand once again to comment on the results following their publication. The Net Entertainment Group CEO said: “Again, Net Entertainment showed double digit growth in the second quarter despite the low season that normally starts in May. We have a good sales pipeline in Great Britain as well as in other parts of Europe and overall our position is strong on the market. I look forward to the second half of 2013.”
The future looks as bright as ever for the company but one of the clear highlights of recent months is the manner in which their mobile platform has taken off among players and partners alike. Net Entertainment received three awards in June covering Slot Provision, Innovation in Mobile and Mobile Supplier of the Year, something that will really make mobile casino players sit up and take notice if they have not done so already.
The mobile division is already proving to be something of a cornerstone for the company’s growth, not least with the signing of four new partnerships in the second quarter. This brings the number of mobile casinos offering Net Entertainment games up to 34, while they are also pushing ahead with plans for some of the best online and mobile live casino games. Nineteen live casino agreements have been signed, although they are currently hard to find at Net Entertainment casinos as many partners are waiting for the full launch of live dealer blackjack. This version of the classic, known as Common Draw Blackjack, has been developed in house to be something completely different to existing offerings and will allow an unlimited number of players to enjoy the standard blackjack rule set simultaneously.
If you haven’t tried Net Entertainment’s suite of mobile casino games then you really should. Just like their desktop titles, they are well known for the quality of the graphics and gameplay, not to mention a wide range of original features. You can try them now on your smartphone or tablet by heading over to Jetbull Mobile Casino or Mr Green Mobile Casino now.
