Microgaming Software Review
What makes online casinos as interesting as they are is the collection of games that they make available to their patrons. And those games are a direct by-product of the software that is used to design them. The software is, if you will, the engine by which the big locomotive is run. It makes sense that when you've got the best software, you have a pretty good chance of having the best casino.
There are plenty of software companies that service the online gambling market. But the company that probably garners the most respect in the field is Microgaming, which has been at its trade about as long as anyone else has.
Microgaming lays claim to actually establishing the first full-blown online casino, but it wasn't long before the company's brain trust decided that the best business model for them was to provide other casinos with their suite of software games, rather than try to run their own singular casino operation.
The results have been staggering. The company arguably has more casino clients than anybody else, and it is no wonder why. Microgaming designs the most imaginative games in the world. And they have more of them, by far, than anyone else.
Any casino that assumes the entire menu of offerings from Microgaming will have close to 600 games for its customers to enjoy. This includes almost 400 slot games, so there is naturally something for everyone. The variety of blackjack and other table games is unmatched. So is the video poker arsenal.
Microgaming has a very extensive progressive jackpot network, so that when customers hit big, they hit REALLY big. And they offer a huge poker network as well, which lends itself to some great tournament action.
Customers who play at a Microgaming-powered casino can participate in different ways. They can download the casino itself, which offers the full slate of games and includes very easy navigation from one game to the other. But they can also play the games without downloading anything. This is done through the "Instant Play" mechanism, where indeed the games can be played right through the browser. This software provider makes more no-download games available than anyone else. And now Microgaming has taken the lead in terms of mobile accessibility, with over 40 games available for players in its HTML5 platform.
There is little doubt that as technology for online gambling gets better and better, Microgaming will be right at the forefront of it.
