MICROGAMING CASINO SOFTWARE DETAILS
In business since 1994, Microgaming is the world's leading producer of online casino games, and held a virtual monopoly of the industry at one point owing to the quality of their software and the rapid expansion of their business at a time when there wasn't much competition to be found. Despite increased competition over the past decade, Microgaming still stands as the online casino industry's leader, with over 600 games, over 300 of which have now been converted to flash format for play on mobile devices and mac computers. More than half of those games are slots, giving them a wider stable of games than any other online casino software provider.
Not only is Microgaming prolific, they continue to stand on the cutting edge of innovation in the field. They pioneered the use of multi-player casino games, and their live dealer online casino games are even broadcast and shared live by some of the websites running their software, as well as third parties. They've also configured many of their most popular slots games (some of which are based on popular licensed brands such as Tomb Raider and Hitman) for tournament play, another emerging trend in the industry.
If you're a fan of large progressive jackpots (and most slots players are, that's one of the major allures of playing slots after all), then Microgaming's progressive jackpot machines should be at the top of your list. Owing to their popularity, Microgaming has some of the largest progressive jackpots in the industry, having awarded over $500 million of such jackpots since the company's inception, with single prizes of up to $6 million having been awarded. They're also responsible for the largest jackpot ever awarded to a player on a mobile device, a hefty 3.7 million pound jackpot awarded from their game Mega Moolah (which certainly lived up to its name in that instance).
The Microgaming software program is available as a free download for computers, and gives access to every Microgaming game which that online casino has licensed for use. Some casinos license about half of the total games, while others license nearly all of them. As mentioned, nearly half of Microgaming's games are available in flash format, and these games are also offered in free play mode for players to test out the games. It's a great way to test out the great Microgaming software and experience why they've been an industry leader for two decades.
