Microgaming launched its first mobile casino software in 2004 and today offers industry leading mobile gaming solutions, custom-made to enable any enterprise from the online industry, mobile space or land-based arena, to enter the world of mobile casinos with ease.
The capabilities of mobile devices have evolved remarkably over recent years. From today’s high powered, graphic rich smartphones and tablets, right through to early feature phones with the most basic screens and internet connectivity, our experience and pedigree means we have the right product to enable you to fully exploit the broad spectrum of devices within the mobile market and the opportunity they represent. Having the biggest portfolio of games in the industry, including some of the most popular and well-known titles, certainly gives Microgaming a head start when it comes to best serving their operators looking to enter the mobile and tablet space.
Android Smartphones and Tablets
With most of the world’s leading mobile phone manufacturers now producing a range of Android based smartphones, Google’s mobile operating system represents the biggest portion of smartphone sales in virtually every country in the world. Additionally, most of the tablets now hitting the tablet market worldwide also have Android as their operating system. For the millions of smartphones and tablets running newer versions of Android, Microgaming has developed what is the gold standard of gaming in this space. With a totally re-engineered and unmatched ‘swipe and tap’ interface, superbly rich graphics and a super smooth game play experience, these games set the benchmark for others to strive for.
Games can be split into categories; promotions or features can be communicated to players either external to the app by SMS, or in the app via the lobby and the games themselves. Deposit match or sign up bonuses can be awarded and players can track their bonuses in the app. New games are added via a seamless upgrade process, keeping players up to date with the latest and best titles and features. The games include high quality versions of the ever popular blackjack and roulette, some of the most popular Microgaming slots like the world renowned Tomb Raider™ and Thunderstruck, Mega Moolah (the biggest progressive jackpot in the Microgaming Jackpot stable) and a number of fantastic video poker games. Quite simply, this experience sets a whole new level in the mobile gaming space and the quality of user engagement needs to be seen to be believed.
For the rest of the wide range of smartphone and tablet devices in the marketplace, such as Apple, Windows Phone 7 and Blackberry, Microgaming has also developed a suite of equally powerful games in HTML5 (the new web standard) that look and feel like Native applications and have all the cutting edge qualities synonymous with Microgaming software. As more and more mobile and online browsers support HTML5 Microgaming will supply you with the right product for you to be well placed to exploit this opportunity.
There are a broad range of screen sizes and resolutions used by mobile and tablet devices. Our games automatically detect the screen size and resolution of the device and scale to fit accordingly. High definition graphics maintain the super sharp display, regardless of which device is being used.
Balance, Registration and Banking
We have developed both Android and HTML5 versions of banking and registration. Fully re-designed with a ‘swipe and tap’ interface for the best player experience on whatever mobile/tablet screen size they are using. However, if you already have your own banking and registration modules they can also be seamlessly incorporated. Additionally, if you maintain player balances on an existing system we can easily integrate our cutting edge games to work with any balance, for the best possible player experience.
Web App (HTML-4) Games
For older Smartphone mobile devices that are still in use worldwide and which support web capabilities via a "Webkit" compatible browser, we have the Microgaming Web application suite of games, with rich graphics and dual mode functionality to automatically allow vertical and horizontal game play.
There remains a massive number of Java based devices worldwide, particularly in developing economies. However, even some newer 'low end' devices or those with smaller screen sizes are better suited to running our Java based suite of games, which run on more than 1,800 MIDP2 compatible devices.
If our system detects a previously unknown device a small application is downloaded that searches the device for other content and provides the best possible match based on platform and screen resolution.
Security and Fairness
Microgaming’s systems and Random Number Generator have been certified by the independent player protection and standards organisation, eCOGRA, confirming that the development, implementation, maintenance and security of its mobile games portfolio and back-office systems are representative of industry best practice.
Player Betting Resolution
Microgaming’s mobile system has built-in disconnection insurance. If during anytime in the process connection is lost, the next time the player logs in, the game will continue from the exact point in the chain from where connection was lost. There is no time limitation and this process ensures that the player will never lose a purchase.
Microgaming’s mobile application is a highly-secured platform. Sensitive data stored in the database is encrypted using various standard protocols. The back-office system and game-play transactions are protected using a secure tunnel (SSL 1024 bit) for all communications to and from the gaming server.
