About the Developer
Microgaming supplies award-winning online gaming software to leading operators across the globe. The company developed their first casino software in 1994 and the first mobile casino software in 2004. Its products include Casino, Poker, Bingo, Sportsbook, Land-based and Live dealer games.
The brand is consistently striking deals to strengthen its reputation, having inked agreements with the likes of Betwarrior, Rootz and Gameburger Studios in previous months.
New Generation of Game Builders
In previous years, Microgaming has invested a lot of resources in outsourcing by partnering with independent software providers such as All41Studios, Pulse 8, GameBurger Studios, Neon Valley and now Alchemy Gaming.
By working with standalone iGaming suppliers, the Isle of Man based technology provider is aiming on modernization and greater options. The company has already been known for reinventing the whole gaming experience and some of the latest slot releases like Lara Croft Temples and Tombs or Book of Oz by Triple Edge Studios are already among the top gaming products across multiple platforms.
Microgaming also works with Stormcraft Studios, producers of Fortunium, Breakaway Deluxe and recently launched Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx. Similarly, the award-winning online gaming providers cooperates with Slingshot Studios, Fortune Factory and Switch Studios –inventers of top-most slots and table games, including A Dark Matter, Banana Odyssey, Zombie Hoard, Cash of Kingdoms, Tiki Mania, Classic Blackjack, American Roulette, European Blackjack and Atlantic City Blackjack.
In 2015, the company’s jackpot network set a Guinness World Record after a UK player won staggering €17,879,6445.12 from a 25-cent spin. Microgaming is also a founding member of eCOGRA and supplies approximately above 800 leading gaming brands around the globe.
