Online Casino and Gambling Software
The online casino software industry may seem a difficult one to understand, but in principle it's very easy. In the same way that Boeing make aeroplanes for both BA and Virgin the same goes for the online casino industry. There are three main online casino software manufactures who design and lease software to the top online casinos. In this section we have written introductions to the top three online casino software providers which are Microgaming, CryptoLogic and the newest of the bunch Playtech.
Top Casino Software Providers
Microgaming is a South African online casino software developer and considered to be the most respected in the online casino industry. Microgaming first started developing online casino software in 1994 and in 2003 launched their poker network called the Prima Poker Network. Powering established online casino names like Spin Palace and 32Red and offering over 250 casino games it’s not hard to see why over 35% of online casinos are powered by Microgaming casino software.

Playtech is an Israeli online casino software company that’s made some waves after its relatively late arrival onto the online casino software market (launching its first games in 2001).

In 2004 Playtech launched the iPoker network that featured 3D poker and 2005 saw a new range of ‘soft games’ such as virtual horse racing as well as 75 and 90 ball uk bingo.
