What is Microgaming?
Microgaming Software Systems Ltd is a private company that develops software for online gaming. This company, based at the Isle of Man, was the first to successfully develop an online casino.
Advanced Technology to Power a Wide Range of Games
Microgaming powers various online casino games to deliver a smooth and enriching experience to all players. Any online casino that is aided by Microgaming Software Systems has more than six hundred games and they include everything from slots, video poker, to blackjack and roulette. The software can be downloaded or they are also available in Flash versions but to make sure that the software works across all platforms, the games are now being available in HTML 5 as well.
Microgaming Software also provides a range of progressive jackpots to casinos which are connected to the main operators of a particular casino.
The Online Poker Network
Formerly known as the Prima Poker, the Microgaming Poker Network or what is simply known as the MPN is a network that allows players to play several poker games against actual people on a virtual platform. The games which are available on this online poker network include Texas Hold ‘Em and five and seven card stud poker.
There are a few controversies concerning Microgaming Software Systems Ltd and they have been listed below.
∑ At the end of February 2008, Microgaming licensee Tusk Investment Corporation Limited liquidated and all players with funds in 28 different rooms were left as unsecured creditors. However, a report suggests that these players were able to recover some amount.
∑ The biggest online casino win of the progressive jackpot (Mega Moolah) was announced in May 2009, and the winner was rewarded $6,374,434. This appeared to be the largest online casino pay-out ever but later other developers managed to get more jackpot wins on their poker games.
Apart from the aforementioned controversies, Microgaming has developed and created several solutions that benefit their clients significantly. These include Virtual Reality headset games, released in May 2016 powered by Oculus Rift Technology which are great for VR Roulette. They have also signed a contract with Skill On Net, an agency that provides technological solutions to online gaming and they have access to about 500 games from Microgaming.
Microgaming remains to be a leading provider of online gaming software that is both innovative and secure.
