Established in 1994 Microgaming have been developing online casinos software from the very beginning. Microgaming is the oldest, most reliable and respected online casino software providers out there. The South African based Microgaming and its casino licensees have been honoured time and time again by industry awards. Microgaming was named as the year's best online casino software provider based on the results of an online survey conducted by Gambling Online Magazine, the online casino industry's leading magazine title.
Microgaming is constantly introducing new technology to its online casino software and most importantly new casino games. It was Microgaming who developed minimum download software or MUP (Microgaming Upgrade Protocol), which allows players to initially download a small file containing a minimum number of casino games. While the customer is playing the casino games, the remaining games are downloaded automatically in the background.
If networked progressive jackpots are your game of choice in the casinos then you only have Microgaming to thank. More importantly Microgaming casino slots are known to be THE best in the industry. Why? Attention to detail, great layout, speed and themes. Take a look at legendary land based slot machine manufacturer IGT and you'll spot the similarities immediately!
Microgaming's blackjack game uses a single deck but that's where the good news ends. The dealer stands on soft 17, you can double down only on two-card totals of 9, 10 and 11, there's no doubling after splitting, no re-splitting and no surrender. What's more the player loses his full bet, including all double-down and split money, on any dealer blackjack.
