NetEnt Launching New MAX PokiesTia Winter | 25 July 2018
When it comes to the gaming portfolios of international giants like NetEnt, it is clear that every pokie on offer is different in some way. This is to meet the demands of all kinds of players, some of whom prefer certain features, certain bonuses, and a specific level of volatility in their games of choice.
Now, NetEnt has decided to diversify its vast gaming library even further with the addition of the MAX product. Using MAX, the brand essentially plans to begin releasing twin versions of their classic pokies, with the games retaining their original format and designs but seeing their volatility being increased considerably.
Most of NetEnt’s pokies have a high Return to Player percentage that reaches into the mid-90s, but some of the titles on offer lack the potential to produce truly huge wins. Lower volatility releases pay out more frequent wins, but they tend to be smaller in size to compensate for their frequency. On the other hand, high volatility means that wins are less common to land – but when they do strike, they will be much larger in value.
MAX To Appeal to High Rollers
By introducing MAX games, NetEnt aims to appeal to those players who prefer infrequent, bigger wins in their chosen machines. By catering to punters with a different range of tastes, the company hopes to diversify its portfolio even more, hopefully attracting some higher rollers in the process as well.
The popular Swedish iGaming software developer is set to unveil the new concept soon, when it is scheduled to release both the new BerryBurst and BerryBurst MAX slots on August 23. This will be the first of the developer’s games that players will be able to try in both iterations on its release, and those who are looking to win big jackpots will no doubt be thrilled to find an option to suit their specific needs.
New Games Debuted at iGB Live!
The latest industry trends have seen an increase in online pokies with high volatility and lucrative payments, so the release of the MAX range comes as no surprise. According to the firm’s press release announcing the new title and feature, it understands the need for added diversity in its gaming portfolio, touting the product as the answer to this global demand.
Before the official release, NetEnt showcased the new BerryBurst MAX slot during the iGB Live! Conference in Amsterdam, which ran until the 20th of July. Guests at the event got an exclusive peek at what the new feature has to offer, as well as what online and mobile players can expect in August.
