In 1994, Microgaming created the first online casino. The moment electronic banking became viable, it opened the doors to the potential of safely and securely placing bets online, and Microgaming was the first to see it. They have come a very long way since those early days over two decades ago, and their continued dedication for providing innovative and fresh takes on all things online and land-based gaming has garnered this world-renowned brand a peerless staying power. No matter how you prefer to place your bets, Microgaming has you covered, providing their software to countless online casinos available here in Australia.
Microgaming has won almost 40 highly coveted individual awards in total, including from the EGR Awards, CasinoPlayer, Casinomeister, Gambling Online Magazine, the Global Gaming Awards, and the International Gaming Awards, all for their software, innovation, and digital products. They have more casino games than any other software provider, including exclusive rights to some of pop culture’s most beloved movies, TV shows, and characters for their Pokies. In fact, they have committed to creating a new game at least once a month!
They have over 850 unique games, including over 1200 variations, over 40 progressive jackpots, almost 40 multiplayer games, and over 350 mobile games, all in over 45 languages and in over 25 currencies, including the AUD. Their MegaMoolah Pokie even beat the world record with a €6.37million jackpot! Other notable Pokies include Game of Thrones, Thunder Struck II, and Immortal Romance. They also have Live Dealer studios, sportsbooks, and more.
Licensing and Regulation
Over 450 different online and land-based casino brands use Microgaming products. They are licensed and regulated by Great Britain’s Gambling Commission, and operate under the Isle of Man’s strict oversight. In 2003, they cofounded the extremely trusted eCOGRA seal of safety and fairness you’ll find at the most reputable online casinos, but a 2011 management buyout separated Microgaming from the eCOGRA name, furthering the seal’s independent trust that players rely on. They comply with the Interactive Gaming Council and the Remote Gambling Association, and their feedback through player forums and independent expert reviewers are glowing as well.
Services They Provide
Microgaming can just supply their games to an online casino, but they also offer services that go above and beyond. It’s no wonder that so many casinos that Microgaming provides their software too are such dominant forces, made especially apparent when you consider that they offer marketing, corporate management, service management, security and customer support, and payment methods to many of the casinos they partner with. This is why players can rest assured that if Microgaming is the software provider, the casino is worth checking out.
As we said before, Microgaming has partnered with over 450 brands both online and land-based, so it’s not even close to worth listing them all here. With that being said, some of their most notable and most highly recommended casinos include 32Red and all of their subsidiaries, All Slots, Royal Vegas, Jackpot City, Bet365, Spin Palace, Roxy Palace, and so much more. Since their partners don’t usually choose to have Microgaming’s entire catalogue in their lobby, it shouldn’t be a question of whether you want to play at an online casino, it should be a question of which one, because some specialize in Pokies while others in sports or poker.
Microgaming’s awards include The Celton Manx Award for Corporate Social Responsibility 2014, The Baker Tilly Isle of Man Award for Corporate Social Responsibility 2012, and The Nationwide International Award for Business Person of the Year Microgaming CEO 2008. Their commitment to fair play, security, safety, third-party compliance, and giving back to their local community make Microgaming one of the most trusted, respected, and award-winning members of the online gaming industry. They offer support to players that includes deposit and bet limits, session time limits, resources for problem gambling, and the option to block players from their websites temporarily or permanently if the player requests it.
