Microgaming is one of the top casino software developers right now, and they’ve had a lot of time to consolidate their position on the market, since they were one of the first to start offering online games. They started out back in 1994, had their own casinos at first, but soon enough they started offering their platform to others. Obviously, that was a very good move for them, since they’re leaders in the industry.
They make some of the best slots out there, and they have a huge number of options available for the players that enjoy their work. With 600+ slot machines to offer, there is nobody with more titles, themes and variety in their collection. 100+ casinos use their games, with new ones added to the list each year.
To give you an idea of their popularity, just take a look at the progressive jackpots that they paid out over the years, more than $330 million being offered to players during the last decade.
For the really popular games from their collection, look at some of the older ones which have progressive jackpots, such as Mega Moolah, Major Millions or Lotsaloot.

Multi-platform Software for Desktop & Mobile
The original Microgaming content was available via downloadable software, and some of their older slot machines are still offered that way. Their current games are all playable directly in your browser though, and they’re 100% mobile friendly.
You can play their content at Microgaming casinos, where they have their own software and the option to download on your PC, or at Quickfire powered casinos. Quickfire is the modern option, with instant play titles only and with dozens of other developers contributing content to the casinos that use the platform.

Themes & Graphics
When you have the huge number of slot machines that Microgaming does, you’re bound to have a lot of different themes, no matter how many Ancient Egypt or classic games you might’ve released over the years. The variety is there obviously, and since at least one new slot is being released each month, there are over a dozen new themes covered each year.
As a developer with an excellent reputation and a lot of financial power, it’s not a surprise that many of the best branded slot machines on the market are coming through them. It’s the case with two Playboy themed slot machines, with games inspired by Jurassic Park or Battlestar Galactica, to give you just a couple of quick examples.
The closer to present days you get, the better the graphics tend to be. Obviously, the slots from a decade ago are starting to show their age, but newer ones are usually excellent.
The games where Microgaming innovates are among the best that you will see anywhere. They try to put as much variety in the features that they use, as they do in the themes that they cover. Wilds, multipliers, scatters, free spins, bonus games, ways to win, every single major feature will be present, though usually only two or three at the same time in each game.
Progressive Jackpots – Microgaming Network
An area where Microgaming is the absolute leader is in progressive jackpots. Their network is the biggest one around, they offer multiple jackpots worth over $1 million and they’re extremely reliable. They pay the lump sum, while others pay in installments. They’ve paid more than $330 million in progressive jackpots during the last decade.
Mega Moolah Mega – biggest win was at over £13 million, while the average payout is at €4 million.
Major Millions – biggest win at €1.94 million, average at €0.49 million.
King Cashalot – biggest payout at €1.52 million, average one is at €0.65 million.
While they’re especially well known for their slot machines, they haven’t neglected any of the other types of casino games. Every type of roulette, blackjack, craps, baccarat, casino poker, video poker, scratch cards and others will be available at casinos which they power.
They’ve ventured into the Live Dealer market, but they’re not leaders there and they have more work to do if they want to get to the top.
