Founded in 1996, NetEnt is one of the most successful online slot game developers. The company currently boasts 200+ slot titles, including legendary games like Starburst and Gonzo's Quest. But Dutch online casino patrons haven't got a chance to play these games legally until July 20, 2022. On this date, NetEnt announced its official debut in the Netherlands iGaming market after inking a deal with Holland Casino Online. 

NetEnt Goes Dutch with Holland Casino Partnership

Following the agreement, players on the online casino brand will access NetEnt's entire online slot catalog. Dutch online slot fans will enjoy NetEnt's most successful titles, like Jimi Hendrix, Gorilla Kingdom, Gonzo's Gold, Starburst XXXtreme, and Divine Fortune Megaways. Adding NetEnt titles to their slot library will undoubtedly give Holland Casino Online an upper hand in the newly launched iGaming market in the Netherlands. 

At the same time, Holland Casino Online agreed with Evolution to supply Red Tiger's online slots and jackpot games. Red Tiger is the brainchild behind top-performing online slot titles like Gonzo's Quest Megaways, Primate King, and Dynamite Riches Megaways. 

Remember that in 2020, Evolution AB successfully acquired NetEnt in a deal worth €1.9 billion. In 2019, NetEnt purchased Red Tiger Gaming in a sale worth over €220. Other Evolution Gaming brands include Big Time Gaming, the inventor of the Megaways mechanic, and Digiwheel. So, it won't be long before Holland Casino Online adds BTG slots to its game catalog. 

The Dutch Expansion with Holland Casino

James Jones, Evolution's Head of Business Development, said the company is thrilled to partner with Holland Casino Online. He expressed confidence that players at the online casino would love to play the tremendous NetEnt slot titles and that the deal marks a significant step in the company's journey to dominate the Dutch market. The official concluded by wishing both sides a long and fruitful partnership. 

On their side, Holland Casino Online's Director of Digital Transformation, Jeroen Verkroost, said that the operator is always looking for means to expand and enhance their player experience. He commented that the company is thrilled to partner with Evolution to offer their innovative online casino games to Holland Casino Online patrons.

Note that Holland Casino is a government-owned agency founded in 1976. The operator is regulated by the Ministry of Security and Justice and operates 14 retail casinos in the country. Because the Ministry of Finance is a co-founder of Holland Casino, the Dutch Government collects its net profits. 

Meanwhile, Holland Casino Online opened its doors to players in October 2021. This is the same time that KOA (Remote Gambling Act) was enacted after double setbacks to launch the mark. Holland Casino Online offers players a range of betting opportunities, including sports betting, poker, casino games, and bingo. 

Join the Bee Hive Bonanza

In other NetEnt news, the online slot developer announced the addition of Bee Hive Bonanza to its library on September 1, 2022. This slot machine teleports players to the medieval countryside, where green slots and booming flowers rule. You'll hear the bees buzzing around as they prepare the sweet honey. The bees fly out of their castles into the bee hives to impress the queen bee. 

The sweet bonanza happens on a 5x5 grid that boasts the signature Avalanche mechanic, scatters, free spins, and other features. Meanwhile, the Money Bees are the buzzing stars of this show and could come with a sweet cash prize. Also, collecting at least three Honey Pots can trigger bonus spins with some nice multipliers up to 5x. The 96.06% RTP is also more than average. 

Overall, try this slot machine if you're bored of playing the one-dimensional Egyptian and Book-themed slots. Of course, you can play Bee Hive Bonanza on Holland Casino Online without restrictions after the latest development. Enjoy!
