ISLE OF MAN – Microgaming (www.microgaming.com), the world’s largest provider of online gaming software, is pleased to announce its sponsorship of the mGaming Awards and the launch of a range of brand new and industry leading HTML5 games.
The mobile gaming industry is constantly evolving and has seen phenomenal growth over recent years. To reflect the importance of mobile gaming, the mGaming Summit is being held today in London where Microgaming is proud to showcase its innovative HTML5 games and to sponsor the mGaming Awards.
The launch of Microgaming’s HTML5 games sets the gold standard for mobile gaming in the market. Its unique ‘swipe and tap’ interface, rich and carefully detailed graphics, and smooth gaming experience are unbeatable.
