The History Of Microgaming

Microgaming entered the world of online casino gaming in 1994, when they helped develop the very first gaming website. Starting off as a small software company in the Isle of Man they have since grown to become one of the main software developers in the world, with over 120 casinos and 40 poker rooms.

Everybody in the casino universe knows about Microgaming and they are renowned as the leading provider of online casino games. They launched their Viper software in 2002 and from that point onwards – through their savvy ability to create innovative casino software – have maintained a dominant force in the casino market.
Their main rivals inclide Playtech – one of the largest online gaming suppliers, NYX Gaming and the well-known Amaya gaming group.

Everything you need to know about Microgaming

Microgaming has received a vast amount of praise over the last fifteen years. During 1997 they set world record for the largest online jackpot won – £1.5 million. This was won on their now infamous Major Millions game. In 2003, the company became one of the original members of eCOGRA – a collection of casinos that follows a rigorous protocol of safety features – and won the Gambling Online Magazine’s Top Casino Software award.

Towards the end of the first decade of the 21st century Microgaming founded the very first slots tournament – the Grand Slam of Slots. This was met with acclaim and has now been replicated by many other online casinos. Then in 2010 they won the best iGaming Software award at the iGB Affiliate Awards and Casino Meister awarded them the Best Software Supplier. Obviously, as you can see, they have an incredibly impressive track record.
