Many online casino players know them as the creators of such popular classics as Mega Moolah and the Major Millions Megaspin game, but how much do you really know about Microgaming? Here we bring new a rundown of all of the information that you may need to know about the company, whose full name is Microgaming Software Systems Ltd. They are privately held software developer and company based on the Isle of Man, who claim to have released the first genuine online casino back in 1994. They have since claimed their position as one of the leading software providers in the online gambling industry, and amongst those whose will use their software you will find huge casino operators such as the Carbon Media Group, the Fortune Lounge Group, Ladbrokes, 32Red, and the Palace Group.
Most online casinos which use Microgaming software have over 600 games available to them, which includes slots, video poker, blackjack, and roulette. The games are available both in download and Flash versions, as well as in mobile versions for many of the options, as they are still developing their mobile software. Their most famous products are their progressive jackpot games, which are available through an interlinked network of casino operators and which offer huge jackpots the likes of which often break records for the highest online payout ever, particularly when it comes to the Mega Moolah network of games. They do not just do slots, of course, as they also have the Microgaming Poker Network, commonly abbreviated to MPN, which allows players to get involved with multiplayer poker games such as Texas hold ‘em in real time. They often break boundaries and create innovative new products, such as the Blazing Canon mini game feature which was integrated into its Blaze Poker game in August 2013. This was the first time that a game within a game became the integral part of an online poker game. They were also amongst the first poker networks to offer a fully integrated achievement.
It is for their slots that they are really well known, however, as they have a huge level of quality which is something that is unparalleled elsewhere in the online casino industry. The games often top of the most popular game of the year lists, and are amongst the most played around the world, for the fact that they are highly innovative as well as using very popular themes and the highest possible level of quality graphics. They release 3 or 4 new games every single month of the year, often around themes such as the season, as well as games that are based around popular television shows or movies when they are able to make sponsorship deals with different companies. They have partnered with brands such as Playboy, BattleStar Galactica, the recent Dark Knight trilogy of Batman films, Hellboy, Tomb Raider, and many more, as well as tapping into plenty of other popular themed groups such as ancient Egypt which everyone enjoys.
