Exclusive Test: New NetEnt Slot Mechanic & LetsGiveItASpin Live Stream from Amsterdam
So the day has come for our first NetEnt Exclusive. For the first time ever, you will be able to get a first sneak peak from this mammoth of a game provider, right here at Casinogrounds.
What is MAX?
The Max Product line from NetEnt is all about boosting the volatility of their game titles. In other words, we will find two versions of a video slot. The normal version and the MAX version which both comes with a very similar RTP and the same features. The difference is a lower frequency of small wins in the MAX version, with the potential for much higher winnings.
As Henrik Fagerlund, Chief Product Manager at NetEnt puts it:
““We are certain that the MAX releases will add another dimension to our already hugely popular portfolio, and we are pleased to increase the standard of the game-play experience for players.” In addition, mr Fagerlund pointed out it is important to them to diversify the volatility in their games to cater for the different player needs.
Further NetEnt explains. “We know that operators and players want the high standard of game-play experience when it comes to game mechanics, design and sound that NetEnt is known to deliver. But they also want a diversity in our portfolio in order to mirror the diversity of tastes and player motivations. We have listened and one of our initiatives is the new product line MAX. MAX games are released alongside a sister game release, with a tailor-made double game release for casual players and players looking for games with high win potential."

Good news for the Community.
Now, there’s no secret NetEnt has received some “heat” from our community due their games lacking a tad on the volatility side of things. We love our games to give huge potentials, and that’s why some providers are more prominent than others. Hopefully we will see heaps of new games from the provider the upcoming months which adopts this mechanic.
Since this feature is brand new, and NetEnt is very good at keeping their secrets - no one knows exactly how this new mechanic work. How will MAX affect the game play? and how much of a difference will it make in terms of the actual winnings?
Stay tuned as we will get a full review with screens and comparisons out as soon as we get our hands on the game. I for one think this is a huge step in the right direction for NetEnt. Hopefully they will boost the volatility correctly. Only time will tell as we start receiving the Big Win videos from you guys.
