Microgaming is a pioneer in online gaming software. It was the first to launch an online casino in 1994. Since then it has taken the lead in creating innovative gaming content and features. In 2003 Microgaming launched its new Viper software that became a landmark for others to follow. The software has been certified as fair by eCOGRA. Microgaming operates from the Isle of Man. It has over 400 games in its portfolio and services over 120 online casino operators. It has won several industry awards. Microgaming casinos presently do not accept players from the United States.The Microgaming portfolio covers the complete range of online casino games. There are over 40 blackjack games on offer.

Online slots are Microgaming’s forte. There are over 60 classic slot games. These include mega spin slots that are not offered by any other software provider. The video slots numbering over 200 are the most popular at Microgaming casinos. Microgaming is forever pushing the limits of video slots.

Microgaming offers its software in both download and no download versions. The download version of Microgaming may take longer to download than other online casino software, but this is because it has more games and is larger. There are several noticeable features about the software. The graphics and the audio visual animations in slot games are a treat to watch. The Gold Series table games have elegant table display that creates an impression of wagering in an elite casino. The outstanding features in the table games are the Save Bets feature in roulette games and the Auto Strategy feature in blackjack. The latter is a very power feature because it ensures that players wager using optimum strategy all the time. Microgaming offers more statistics in its games than any other software provider. These help players to analyze their games, plan their strategy and manage their bankroll.
The administrative part of the Microgaming software is also very user friendly. It has a Play Check feature that allows a player to access his entire gaming history. This includes details of every wager placed such as date, time, amount wagered and outcome. Similarly there is a Cash Check feature that provides details of every deposit and withdrawal. The Clear Play bonus system allows players to withdraw winnings from bonuses incrementally as wagering requirements are met.
