Microgaming Software Systems Ltd is a privately held Isle of Man based software development company which claims to have released the first genuine online casino in 1994.
The company is one of the leading software providers to the online gambling industry, with just under 120 casinos listed on its website.
Online casino operators such as the Star
Partner, BrightShare, Wingate, Prime Gaming, Casino Rewards, Roxy
Affiliates and The Palace Group are among those who use Microgaming's software.
The standard online casino powered by Microgaming has over four hundred games including slots,
video poker, blackjack and roulette. Microgaming provides its casino games in download or Flash version.
The company is also the power behind a number of progressive jackpots through their interlinked network of casino operators.
Some of these games are developed by Derivco.
Microgaming also has an online poker subsidiary called Microgaming Poker Network .
Formerly known as Prima Poker, the software allows players to play multiplayer poker games such as Texas hold 'em and five and seven card stud poker against real people in real-time.
February 2009 the Microgaming Poker Network partnered with Ladbrokes
Poker. To celebrate the partnership Ladbrokes launched a promotional
campaign to give away $1million dollars each month.
In May 2009 Microgaming announced the biggest ever online casino win through progressive
slot Mega Moolah, with the winner taking away €6,374,434 making this win the largest online casino payout in history.
As e-commerce and online gaming continue to expand, regulation and assurance are vital. That's why we co-founded eCOGRA: e-Commerce and Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance.
Based in the UK, this independent, non-profit organisation ensures operators act responsibly, treat players fairly and ensure winnings are paid out on time.
