NetEnt, one of the online casino software industries leaders, pulled 5 of their video slots off the market on the 5th of September. This is the second round of slots to get the chop and be removed from the providers gaming menu this year.
This is not the first time that slots have been removed from the NetEnt menu. Last year the company removed 3 of its most popular titles, Aliens, South Park, and South Park: Reel Chaos. Sadly however, the decision was not well received by fans. NetEnt seems to have learned its lesson though and this tie around they opted to give players advance notice of the latest ousting.
Games are usually taken down when their licenses are expiring and the company has chosen not to renew the licensing rights. There has been no confirmation of this from the company, but that may be because they are busy settling in their new interim CFO. Lars Johansson was appointed on the 3rd of September.
The games no longer available for a spin are:
A 5-reel video slot with 3 rows. The game offered players 243 Ways To Win and had a linked reels feature. Connected by chains, linked reels could become triplet or quadruplet reels.
Nrvna, or nirvana, was a 5- reels, 30 bet lines slot that paid an x3multiplier on a Wilds win. It also featured the mysterious Nrvna Wheel that could push your multipliers up to x10.
Set in the ancient Universe this 5-reel, 3-row game featured 25 pay lines. The main feature of this game was the Multiplier Meter that could run up as high as x32.
This games great graphics was entertaining enough on its own. Another 5-reel, 3-row slot. Tornado featured 20 pay lines and generous Wilds every time the wind blew.
Finally, Glow Touch is last to go in this round of removals. Say goodbye to the games spirit animals and northern lights as well as its 5 reels and 15 bet lines.
It is always sad to see players favourites removed from casinos. However, NetEnt has been an industry leader for over 20 years. This means that if the games are coming down there must be a solid reason behind it. Such as exciting new releases like Berry Burst and the MAX series!
