They were there when it all began, and created the world’s very first true online casino way back in 1994, and although the scene has changed enormously since then, they are still with us today. Based in the Isle of Man, they are the world’s leading supplier of online gaming software. Microgaming have products including; mobile, casino, multi-player, poker, bingo, sportsbook, land-based, live dealer, business solutions and Quickfire.

This long-standing, well-respected company are pretty impressive creating in excess of 850 unique casino games that also include over 1,200 variants, and they keep it all fresh by releasing new titles each month.

One of the most popular variant of the online casinos games is the live dealer games that operate out of a real casino and take place in real time. For instance, if your game was live blackjack online, you could experience the game from the comfort of your armchair via a safe and secure stream using your web-cam. This type of live game lets you interact with the dealer as well as other players and is possibly the most immersive experience and the closest you can get to being in a real bricks and mortar venue.

As you can see by the list above, Microgaming is at the forefront of technology, and players are always going to find new slots machines on each and every online site that offer their games. As innovators in their field this prestigious company have led the way in mobile development and have produced games that are playable and immersive, currently Microgaming has in the region of 350 games (native app and HTML5).

Microgaming’s software also generated the biggest online bingo win ever at £5.88 million, and the wins do not stop there with massive jackpot payouts taking place on a regular basis. Microgaming also has the largest progressive jackpot network in the world with more than 716 million being paid to lucky winners to date.

Recently the company has unveiled its new building on Circular Road on the Isle of Man (called Sixty-Two.) Roger Raatgever who is the CEO of Microgaming saying “it’s incredible to think that when we set up Microgaming on the island back in 2001 there were just six staff.”

The new offices are next door to its original building, and this second office allows for even more rapid expansion with the overall staff numbers currently standing at 231. This is an exciting new chapter for the highly successful company with the new offices giving staff the optimum working environment with a built-in waste management and efficient energy systems.
