minor beef, but if we had to find a fault with Microgaming, it would
be game graphics. Images
are not quite as sharp, and games don’t look as nice as those of

a ‘close-up’ look and feel that makes all
numbers/instructions/action very easy to see.
Maybe a good option for players whose eyesight isn’t what
it once used to be.
