A Look Back at Some of the Biggest Winners in May
casino blog
27 June 2016

Two UK players won life-changing jackpots in May 2016 totalling more than £4.5 million. The first big win occurred at LeoVegas online casino and the lucky player from London, England, scooped a total of £2,906,306.34 after spending just £20 in the casino. “I’d just got home from work and decided to have a spin. It’s still so unreal for me; I can’t believe I’ve actually won,” said the lucky 36-year-old winner, who wishes to remain anonymous.

He then went on to say, “I can’t wait to spoil my daughter, who has just turned two months, and give her a brilliant start to life and a safe place to grow up.” He was playing on a progressive jackpot slot from NetEnt called Mega Fortune Dreams and ended up making it to the progressive jackpot bonus round which triggered when three of the Bonus Symbols landed on reels 3, 4 and 5. From there he made it to the centre of the Wheel of Fortune and netted the Mega Jackpot (the largest of three jackpots).

20 March 2015

Fortunately for UK players today, the majority of top-rated UK gambling portals do now have a selection of NetEnt games available, but up until a few years ago there were only around half as many NetEnt powered casinos available for UK players compared to the amount that are available today, in 2015. NetEnt software continues to win industry awards, the company’s technology is constantly evolving and you can now find NetEnt software in nearly 200 individual UK gambling portals.

NetEnt (or Net Entertainment as it is officially known) is a Swedish based online casino software provider and their games can now be found in a growing number of top UK gambling portals, but you will find that very few of these gambling portals are powered entirely by NetEnt software. Many of these sites are also powered by companies like Bally Technologies, IGT Interactive, Microgaming (Quickfire), Yggdrasil Gaming, Genesis Gaming, NYX Gaming, Ash Gaming (a Playtech company), Thunderkick, Quickspin, Amaya and Play’n GO, and possibly by one or two other providers as well like OpenBet, Freemantle, Electracade, Barcrest and Mazooma Interactive Games.

What are the Best Microgaming Casinos for UK Players

18 March 2015

The number of Microgaming casinos accessible to UK players was dramatically reduced after new UK online gaming legislation was introduced to towards the end of 2014. Prior to this new legislation, UK players could visit hundreds of different Microgaming powered casinos and these gambling portals were licensed in one of several major jurisdictions around the world. To visit an online casino today, it also needs to be licensed by the UK Gambling Commission.

Unfortunately not all operators wanted to comply with the new legislation and this meant that they would avoid paying huge taxes each year, but it also meant that these operators would not be able to aim their business towards the UK market. In February 2015, there are hundreds of Microgaming casinos that are no longer accepting real cash wagers from UK players which previously did. Some of the operators of these casinos have applied for UK licenses, but others have not applied and are probably not likely to.

Which Net Entertainment Casinos Still Accept UK Players?

25 February 2015

Fortunately for UK players, Net Entertainment software and the vast majority of the best NetEnt powered casinos have always been licensed in the United Kingdom, by the UK Gambling Commission (well at least since the UK Gambling Commission was set up under the Gambling Act 2005). In other words, there are just as many NetEnt casinos available for UK players today, if not more, compared to the number that were available before new UK online gaming legislation came into effect towards the end of 2014.

In other words, you can still play at pretty much the same casinos as before. You will usually find that most UK online casinos are not even powered ENTIRELY by Net Entertainment (aka NetEnt). The casinos where you can find NetEnt games are generally known as cross-platform gambling portals which boast multiple gambling products and are powered by multiple software providers.
