When it comes to the world of online slots, there’s one provider that sits head and shoulders above the others – a provider that has created so many of the best-loved slots ever seen, that they are now a by-word for quality in the industry. This company is Microgaming.
To say that Microgaming have a long history would be an understatement, as they’ve been around ever since the internet started to really take off. Since their foundation in 1994, they’ve consistently moved with the times, embracing new and exciting technologies, and adding more and more features to their games. It’s not just slots they produce either, as they also have an impressive line-up of other games too, such as roulette, blackjack and baccarat.
Just because they are big though, it doesn’t necessarily mean they are the best (although, in this case, they are). So, what are the pros and cons of this giant gaming company?
The biggest pro anyone can attach to Microgaming is its reputation. Thanks to the fact that it’s been around for so long, players know that they are going to get great games, and this has recently been proved true once again by the release of games such as Game of Thrones and Jurassic Park.
Pro: Game Selection
It’s almost certain that Microgaming has the biggest selection of games of any casino provider. This is partly due to their long history, and partly because they have the funds necessary to churn out high-quality games on a regular basis. What’s more, these games are incredibly varied, from simple, traditional slots, all the way through to hugely complex offerings, featuring multiple bonuses and special features.
Pro: Ease of Use
Microgaming games are all known to be really easy to play, and this is down to many factors. The first is that they’re all browser based, so there’s never any need to download anything. Then there’s the fact that experience has taught Microgaming how to make the most intuitive layouts to their games. Finally, all Microgaming games come with really comprehensive Help sections, which run every player through the rules, payouts and other general info they might need. So, for newer online casino players, Microgaming games are a great place to start.
Con: Limited 3D
It’s taken a lot of digging to find a negative thing to say about Microgaming, as there really aren’t many. They haven’t really embraced the world of 3D slots though, which is something that many players would like to see them push on with. This has allowed BetSoft to gain a strangle-hold on 3D games at casinos and, while BetSoft also produce some absolutely fantastic games, it would be nice if they had some competition.
