Whose Games Do We Play? Part 3: Microgaming
Microgaming is definitely no stranger in online gaming. The company managed to develop and launch its first online casino in 1994, at the time when computers were big and the Internet was slow. By the way that not only Microgaming’s first creation, but the first ever online casino. Back then not many could have predicted this company to become the world’s biggest casino software developer.
The company itself is headquartered in the Isle of Man and offer more than 800 different casino games. Nowadays the company is best known among the online casino players for their Quickfire platform allowing millions of gamblers around the web to enjoy casino games developed by the people who ‘eat, sleep and breathe online gaming’ (as their official web-site says).
I should also say that the quality of the games developed by Microgaming is confirmed not only by many players who enjoy them, but also by the industry’s experts who gave the company multiple awards during its lifetime. Among the others Microgaming managed to win in various nominations at such awards as EGR Awards, Casinomeister, Global Gaming Awards and many others.
Besides their games’ persistent technical excellence Microgaming manages to find one more distinctive feature for their products. They managed to acquire a number of different media-licences which gives the company the right to develop and publish licensed games. That means that you no longer have to stare at cards, diamonds and other generic symbols spinning on the slot reels, but now you can see your beloved movie or video game characters, for example. The company has the rights for quite a number of cult classic characters and universes with Terminator, Batman (The Dark Knight series), Jurassic Park, Lara Croft Tomb Raider, Battlestar Galactica being among them. And that is not even the complete list. Now the players have the opportunity to feel nostalgic while playing their favorite 90s movie themed game. And that opportunity is able to attract even bigger audience than the biggest casino games developer already has.
Overall Microgaming, being the biggest, strongest, and the most famous company in the whole industry, is not resting on their fame, but still manages to provide their audience with high class casino games. And if you see a casino that has their games in use be sure that you won’t be left disappointed.
