Microgaming

Microgaming slots

Making over a billion pounds per year, actively producing slot games since the mid-90s, creator of the progressive slot Mega Moolah that paid out a £13 million pound jackpot on a 25p spin to a British soldier, operating out of Douglas, Isle of Man; Microgaming is one of the prominent companies, at the center stage of shaping up the modern online gambling industry.

I could keep writing a bouquet full of flowery words for this slots maker, but a company already sipping mojitos on the beach, among the elite of the industry, doesn't need them.

Swedish company, NetEnt with its little over 200 slots; and a FTSE-250 company Playtech with over 700 titles, are the only two companies, that come competingly close to Microgaming's library of over 800 slot games.

I also need to make out the reason of why this page exists. Should it be about what Microgaming is? or should it be about online casinos that have solid partnerships with it? There's plenty of material available for both. And I just don't want this attempt to be another duplicate, of an original duplicate.

But life has to go on and one does need to put food on the table. I will need to write down a regurgitated hotch-potch of the good and the bad of Microgaming, rhyming with what's already out there in the wild.

A super gaming company like Microgaming has also got the saintly blessings of eCOGRA, that makes sure all its slots are 3000% honest and truly use a world-class RNG software; and that all the losses and wins on their entire infrastructure is 100% legit. How's that? too much? I would think so. I mean it's no different from how the majority of casino review sites pen it down nowadays. Oh wait, they probably also use Bard or ChatGPT to churn out non-human flatteries.

Thing is Microgaming, or for that matter Playtech, or Pragmatic Play or whatever, didn't reach their billion-dollar-a-year revenue goals by playing nice. Sure, their games can be enticing, but are they really fair? You would have to smack my head with a stiletto and I would still say no. Are they "acceptably" equitable, so as to, giving a slight edge and an occasional, 3 lines of cherries, to a naive gambler, after voraciously gulping down 90 cents for every one dollar of deposit, yes sure. Then another icing on the cake is the original sin; the actual gambling; its randomness and the eventual darkness it brings in terms of irrevocable losses, in many unfortunate cases, a person's life savings. Dreadful, but true. All igaming software providers - some of who charge 9% to 20% in royalty fees alone - are in it for the money. And that too ocean-like, lots of it. What I'm trying to say is that getting overly excited over Microgaming's ability to make you happy, perhaps rich, on a hit-and-miss chance, is well, frankly, stupid.

Now that the somewhat-true rant is out of the way, I can get back to selling you the unwinnable dreams.

Mega Moolah is their most famous progressive slot. It has - in real life - made over 100 people multi-millionaires, with average win amounts of over $3 million; the highest being $17.8 million. It's been played by hundreds of thousands of people from all corners of the globe, with an RTP of 94%, one can win 30X the amount on a bet as low as 8 cents. It also has a slot made on the GoT series, with an RTP of 94.86%, 5 reels and 243 ways to win. Then there's also the famous Thunderstruck, that's been available since 2010; with a 96.1% RTP, also a 5-reeler.

Now comes the part, I generally hate writing about the most: the casino recommendations. Granted, it can potentially make this website money. But this topic is "financially objective." And I like to talk about things subjectively; look at the big picture. Anyways, I thought, why not go through assembly line, and save all the needless work? All these casinos are the same, bros in blood and sweat. There isn't any need to have an original thought process, at least for the places with commercial interests.

So, I Googled Microgaming casinos. I will simply mention the first casino (regulated or not) pushed by the top-Google-ranked review sites. This will save me time and energy, that can be better utilized, like watching the old seasons of Rick and Morty; when Justin Roiland was still in charge. Anywho, one of the oldest, apparently started in 1995, still active casino review site, Casino.org, lists Jackpotcity Casino, an MGA-licensed gambling site owned by Digimedia Ltd. Channel Island of Jersey-based Gambling.com mentions the established Caesars Casino; whereas Romania-based Casino.guru recommended the Europe's biggest, and actively growing in the US, bet365 Casino.

There's also alternatives available to Microgaming. Its competition does well for itself. Curacao-licensed Wazamba Casino is a fairly fine place for playing Austria-located Novomatic's slots; famous for its Book of Ra slot (95.03% RTP); and a crypto casino called Bitsler can be a good option for a well-known Swedish igaming provider, NetEnt; that's quite popular for its "most-played slot game ever" (I don't believe it though, I think Mega Moolah holds that trophy), a 2012-launched, 5-reels, 10 paylines title Starburst (RTP 96.1%).

How about seeing what its competition like Evolution Gaming, Ezugi and Endorphina have to offer. Every regular gambler must heard of these brands.

Microgaming is big. It's old. It's got tens of millions of dollars in game development budget. It doesn't need the validations from low-traffic websites, such as this to keep rocking. There's nothing in foreseeable future, or immediate present, that can block its path to keep sitting comfortably, right at the very top of the pyramid. Its ingenuity and steadfastness during all the ups and downs in the past three decades, deserves nothing but a standing ovation.

Now go ahead, and empty out your wallet on its highly addictive slots.

Don't. Seriously. I was kidding. :)
