Microgaming developed and launched the first true online Casino software in 1994 and to this day continues to be the software provider of choice to the online gaming industry, due to its unprecedented focus on innovation and quality content.
Showcasing the largest and most diverse portfolio of games in the online gaming industry, Microgaming's steady growth and enduring popularity bears testament to the company's investment in continuous innovation and unique product development.
The Download Casino includes a portfolio of more than 600 unique games, and the instant-play Flash Casino now offers over 300 game titles to choose from. This extensive portfolio supports not only single player but also multi-player games, from traditional table games to exciting multi-line video slots with community bonuses. Players can even choose to play multiple games at the same time, by simply opening different games in separate windows from the casino lobby. If players are looking for more action, a wide selection of Live Dealer table games is available to play, with real-time broadcasts televised from localised studios around the world.
Microgaming continues to deliver on its ambitious game delivery schedule and firmly believes that in a highly competitive environment, innovation and the introduction of regular new content is crucial for sustainable and healthy Player Lifetime Values. Multiple new games are launched every month, offering promotional opportunities for casino operators and exciting new content for existing players. It is through this philosophy of constant momentum that Microgaming has established its unparalleled position in the market and generated the highest Player Lifetime Value in the industry.
Microgaming's operators have the ability to control the currencies offered to players during registration. All currency conversions for fund transfers into the Casino Client are executed outside of the Microgaming Client. Sophisticated monitoring software allows operators to keep a close eye on player activity, while providing everything from in-game customer support through to tailored player rewards and promotions.
Microgaming's software powers the online gaming industry's largest Progressive Jackpot Network, with 41 games on offer to keep the jackpot enthusiasts entertained. This Progressive Jackpot Network has paid out an astonishing level of winnings - more than €375 million since the company was founded. The jackpots are always headline-makers as they are paid in a single lump sum; read about our progressive jackpot millionaires here.
A percentage of the player's wager goes towards the progressive game's jackpot total. All jackpot wins are paid out in a single cash payment, which is of greater advantage to players than the annuity system most competitors have in place.
When a Progressive Jackpot is won, the software sends the information to the central progressive server to verify the win and confirm the total win – which is then presented to the player. This process happens instantaneously to give the player the most rewarding experience.
All progressive play is in credits, meaning that players are able to enjoy these games in the currency of their choice. The progressive total does not change across the different currencies and the amount displayed is always won in the player's own currency.
Microgaming has a truly impressive portfolio of over 400 slot games, ranging from classic 3 reel stepper slots such as Fantastic Sevens, to the latest visually rich and complex video slots like Thunderstruck II.
As in the case of most land-based Casinos, slots also dominate the online casino's game portfolio. The single player experience of a slot game remains a popular platform for players who prefer to play for extended periods of time chasing jackpots and bonus features. A wide variety of themes and game mechanics are available, with the recent introduction of several 243 Ways and 1024 Ways games, having proved very popular with players interested in trying something new and innovative.
For the more experienced player who prefers a faster pace of play, Microgaming has introduced Megaspin versions of popular slot brands. These allow for multiple versions of a game to be played simultaneously on screen, thus dramatically increasing the number of spins that can be achieved during a short play session.
Microgaming has been offering license branded content to its Casino operators since 1994 and continues to pursue lucrative business deals for well-known big brands. These well established brands provide Casino operators with a competitive advantage, enabling them to differentiate their casino in the marketplace while attracting new players to their business.
The Microgaming portfolio of licensed slot games includes:
- The Dark Knight™
- Lara Croft - Tomb Raider
- Lara Croft - Tomb Raider II
- The Osbournes
In addition to its industry-leading expertise in the development of slot games, Microgaming has grown its portfolio of table games into a sophisticated suite of more than 70 unique games. All of these have been fully translated into 24 languages, with new languages being added on a regular basis.
Microgaming has collaborated with industry experts from around the world and invested time in professional focus groups in order to provide players with the most accurate and familiar user experience. From classic games like Blackjack and Roulette through to the hugely popular Asian games such as Baccarat, the Microgaming portfolio of table games displays a high degree of audio and visual excellence as well as user sophistication, which has set a new benchmark for the online gaming industry.
Microgaming continues to add new variations to its suite of Video Pokers, which now includes more than 50 unique games. From the traditional classics like Jacks or Better through to more contemporary favourites like Double Double Bonus Poker, these games can be played in the conventional single hand version or as part of the exciting multi-hand Power Poker Series. Here players can increase the excitement of their favourite video pokers by choosing to play 4, 10, 50 or 100 hands at one time.
For the big jackpot enthusiasts, there is always SupaJax™! One of the few Progressive Video Pokers in the online casino industry, this game is based on the popular Jacks or Better mechanic and remains a firm favourite with players.
Multi-Player Casino Games
Microgaming sets the standard when it comes to the development and hosting of online Casino table and slot tournaments. These multi-player casino games can either be run across the network of Microgaming Casino operators, or by individual operators for their players alone.
A considerable variety of tournament formats are available and several of the most popular slot games are configured for use in the tournament environment. Microgaming's development teams have years of experience ensuring that these tournaments are presented in the most user-friendly manner possible in order to secure a high percentage of player acquisition and retention.
The revolutionary multi-player configuration allows players to play the popular multi-player Wheel of Wealth Special Edition slot game in a virtual room alongside fellow players. Players can chat to each other while the game is in play, and when the bonus is triggered all of the players in the room share that bonus. This adds a lively social networking element to the casino.
Unique and Parlour Games
Microgaming appreciates that there is a large demographic of players who prefer wagering opportunities that exist outside of the traditional Casino genre. For this reason Microgaming continues to provide and develop a broad range of lottery style games as well as scratchcards, kenos, instant win and fixed odds games. There are also a number of casual and soft games that can be played and even localised where appropriate.
