Microgaming fighting on all fronts to be the players choice!

As a player you have a large choice of casinos on the web. Located all around the world these companies are all competing for your attention. With so much choice we thought that we would look at one of the biggest casino system suppliers and examine why a casino operators choice of software system is so important and what it is that makes Microgaming ‘the players choice’ for so may of our readers.

First and foremost a casino operator has to demonstrate to its players that it is fair. This is probably why Microgaming operators have payout percentages reviewed by a 3rd party and why they have developed technologies such as PlayCheck. PlayCheck is Microgaming’s instant replay technology that allows the player to review the results of their play. By simply clicking on a button from within the casino the player can look at the results of each hand of black jack or each spin of a slot. The results are even displayed graphically.

Secondly a casino must have the games that you want to play. Microgaming has always had a reputation for offering a wide choice of games. Recent Microgaming innovations in the game arena include its Power Pokers where you can play five, clearly displayed hands of video poker at once. They also offer second screen slots, where for example, High Noon slots features bullets, among other ‘wild western’ objects. When you get a bullet, you can move on to graphic of two cowboys in a duel. You bet on who will be left standing. The two men stand back-to-back, walk away from each other, then stop, turn and shoot, sound effects and all!

Of course in all Microgaming powered casinos you can ‘play for fun’ as well as ‘for real’, but then you wouldn’t have a chance of winning the world record setting progressives like Cash Splash or Treasure Nile that can only be found in Microgaming casinos. The progressive offering in Microgaming casinos has recently been further enhanced by the addition of Progressive Blackjack and Poker games.

Microgaming is one of only a few casino system suppliers that offer 5 reel slot machines. Five reel slots, that feature up to nine pay lines, are another example of Microgaming’s innovation in game design. While the typical single line slot will appeal to the newer player, these ‘mega’ slots will obviously appeal to the more experienced slot player. The latest of these slots is called ‘5 Reel Drive’ and features Microgaming trademark simplicity of design.

The majority of casinos that use Microgaming software come in download or web based versions. According to Microgaming, providing both download and web-based versions of a particular casino is about giving the player choice. The reason for this is similar to the reason why Microgaming develop such a wide choice of games. To be the players’ choice you have to give a players what they want.
