NetEnt Partners With Bethard To Launch New Virtual Live Casino

Next Level Live

Leading game developer NetEnt has partnered with Bethard to release its latest virtual live casino.

The slot developer, which is responsible for games such as Jumanji and Piggy Riches, has launched some of the first-ever virtual live casinos.

Earlier this month, NetEnt partnered with casino and sportsbook company Bethard to create and launch a virtual live casino called Next Level Live.

The virtual live casino plays like a regular live casino but allows players to select between three external environments including underwater, volcano and space.

The stunning backdrops are available at Next Level Live’s two blackjack and one roulette tables. In addition, Next Level Live also features a roulette table which shows players a feed of live football results.

Henrik Fagerlund, the Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, said in a statement: “Bethard is a super-ambitious brand with aggressive growth plans to match. With Next Level Live, we have jointly created a unique live casino experience that perfectly fits their personality and is guaranteed to boost engagement.”

Bjørnar Heggernes, Casino Manager at Bethard, said: “Next Level Live allows us to have an unprecedented level of product ownership and control and the result is a live casino which is 100% Bethard. This authenticity means that players are getting the true and irreplaceable Bethard experience – we are sure players will love it.”

NetEnt’s Virtual Live Casinos

Bethard wasn’t the first casino operator NetEnt had partnered with to launch a virtual live casino. The leading game developer had already launched virtual live casinos with operators such as Mr Green, Unibet and Ninja Casino.

Ninja Casino‘s virtual live casino, however, only features one virtual environment, a view of a futuristic city from the top floor of a skyscraper. Sadly, the casino is only available in Sweden and Estonia.

Mr Green’s Live Beyond Live virtual live casino features two roulette games and two blackjack games. Unlike Bethard’s virtual live casino, Mr Green’s only offers one virtual environment; a busy casino floor with four tables, virtual players betting on games and helicopters and aeroplanes flying past outside the windows.
