Microgaming is one of the real online casino pioneers, claiming to have developed the first operating online casino platform in 1994.  Since then they have lead the market in building an impressive stable of licensee casinos, including some of the industries most successful and best known operators, such as 7 Sultans CasinoThe Gaming Club and The Riverbelle casinos.  Today, Microgaming is the undoubted market heavyweight with more games, licensee casinos, and innovative concepts than any other online casino software vendor.  And their formidable position in the market is largely due to a very impressive product offering.

Characterised by…

If you like a big diverse game range, then Microgaming’s your platform.  They offer over 250 casino games.   Some of the larger Microgaming licensees like 7 Sultan’s and The Gaming Club have well over 100 games for their player to choose from.  Their progressive range is also the biggest and best in the industry.   In 1998 they introduced the first the internet’s first progressive casino game – Cash Splash slot.  As at March 2005, their stable of progressive games numbered 14, including slots, blackjack, cyberstud poker and roulette.  Their progressive games have the largest default jackpot values, and rise very quickly with game play from many players across lots of participating casinos.  Their current flagship game, Major Millions, has a jackpot that starts the count at $250,000, and passes $1 million regularly.  The biggest winner to date took home cool $1.7 million with one spin.

Other innovative tools offered by Microgaming include audited returns and play tracking.  At any stage of game play players are able to view a complete history of bets places, wins and losses, and with mandatory licensee casino rtp audits by PwC, can view prior months audited return to player stats for the casino they are playing at.

Microgaming’s latest development is their new generation Viper Software, which now powers most Microgaming licensee casinos.  Viper allows players to automatically play their chosen casino game optimally by playing in either of Viper’s expert play modes, which either notify you when you have made a non-optimal bet choice, or automatically make the optimal bet choice for you, depending on the mode selected.

We like because…

Microgaming is simply unmatched for sheer game range, and innovative play options.   A Microgaming casino will offer you more choice of casino games than most terrestrial casinos, and a whole bunch of nifty tools thrown in to the bargain.  They also offer a no frills, intuitive interface that lets you easily find your way around the casino.

We dislike because…

A 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 some of the other software developers.  On the plus side though, the games are all nice and big, with 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.
