Microgaming is one of the most crucial gaming software development companies in the world. Based on the Isle of Man, a tiny British Crown dependency between Great Britain and Ireland, the company provides dozens of games to a plethora of online casino portals and platforms throughout the world.
It is a historical player in this field. The company developed what was, reportedly, the first online casino software, back in 1994. This was just five years after Tim Berners-Lee came up with his famous paper, stating the concept of the World Wide Web. And ten years later, Microgaming was again at the forefront of innovation, launching the first mobile casino software. This time the company anticipated the tremendous boom in mobile use (especially regarding smartphones), as this was two years before the first iPad by Apple.
The company is continuously expanding its operations. In February 2020, they announced a new partnership, this time with Svenska Spel Sport and Casino, the state-owned gambling operator from Sweden. Not only does this mean an exciting client for Microgaming, but it is also a testament to the company’s compliance with the rules and best practices regarding online gambling; few countries are as strict and demanding in these matters as Sweden.
Playing at an online casino using Microgaming software is a plus for every player in the world. The jackpot networks awarded more than one billion euros, up to this day. The company is even in the Guinness Book of Records, having awarded around 19 million euros from a single 32 cents spin!
There are several examples of great games provided by Microgaming. Let’s check some of the best examples.
The possibility of combining any subject with the rules of modern slot machines makes way for exciting and surprising titles. Fans of the famed science fiction TV series will love to be able to win big while enjoying all kinds of references related to the show.
It’s always possible to give a new twist to the classic roulette game. The wheel of fortune is “mandatory” in every online casino platform, and Microgaming ensures that players can always enjoy it in a different and new way.
Some players disagree with the fact that Jacks or Better games are included in the “Poker” category. But this does not mean that, as a video poker game, Jacks or Better can’t generate some enthusiasm. In many ways, video poker games are like slot machines, as the player waits patiently and eagerly for luck to come his way.
After a couple of years without new titles covering blackjack, Microgaming returned to this game, which is also a classic. In May 2019, they launched “European Blackjack.” In December, “Vegas Single Deck Blackjack” started to run in casino platforms across the world. The Casino News Daily rated it 4.9 out of 5. “Realistic gaming experience and a fast gameplay” are among the most praised characteristics of the game.
