HTML5

NetEnt began launching HTML5 games in 2017. The advantage of these games is that they can be played on both computers, smartphones, and tablets. Therefore, there is no need to release a special touch-screen adapted version of the game.

With HTML5, there is no need for Flash, which is a great thing since Flash has been plagued by security problems for several years.

By the end of 2017, over 70 NetEnt games were available as HTML5, and the library has grown significantly since then.
