Microgaming are very proud of their programming and design prowess. They are indeed quite flexible, as their games are programmed in multiple coding languages, such as HTML5, Adobe Flash, Java, C++, .NET and C#. This allowed them to reach the most relevant platforms, so their games are available on Windows, Mac, Android and iOS too. They also developed Quickfire, a platform extensively used by online casinos. This platform allows both casino owners and players to enjoy games quickly and simply, without getting lost in technical details.
The catalogue that Microgaming has put together over the years is one of the widest and most varied in the world of online betting. Whatever it is you’re looking for, you’ll most definitely find it here. Their portfolio boasts over 850 unique casino games with 1200 variants, 40 progressive jackpot games, 35 multiplayers and 350 games available on mobile. It’s no wonder we found it very difficult to only choose a few favourites, considering their sheer number. This doesn’t mean that Microgaming traded quality for numbers, however; all of their products are fantastic on their own.
Rather uniquely, Microgaming also invests energy into making exciting tournament games. Some of their games, such as Hitman, Lara Croft or Terminator 2, Alien Attack and Wheel of Wealth allow players to complete side by side, chat, and view other player’s games. One other important addition to competitive gaming is Microgaming Bingo, which is famous for cashing out 5.8 million pounds to a player who only staked 30p!
Microgaming operates under multiple regulators and licenses. Some of these are the UK Gambling Commission, the Malta Gaming Authority, and the Manx E-gaming association. They are one of the founders of the e-Commerce and Online Game Regulation and Assurance, supporting responsible gaming.

Top Microgaming games
Dragonz: Meet the scaly protagonists of this story: Flint, Frost, Gobble and Switch. These four tiny dragons will help you on your way to fantastic wins in a 5 reel, 243 pay ways video slot game. The slot has eye catching graphics and a very upbeat music. Perhaps the most important feature is represented by the dragons themselves: each as a special power. In a free spin triggered by the scatter symbols, Flint burns more symbols increasingly into wilds with each spin, and Frost freezes wilds into place. Gobble creates sticky wilds from regular symbols, and Switch guarantees a win after stashing 3 or more wilds.
Jurassic Park online slot: Relive the tale of the fearsome dinosaurs with one of Microgaming’s most popular slots. You can experience fantastic animation and soundtrack similar to the famous movie in the 5 reel, 243 pay way slot. You can also rewatch various scenes from the film. More importantly, the game features randomly generated events based on dinosaurs. The Raptors will split your wilds, the triceratops will nudge your reels, and the brachiosaurus will add multipliers. Beware of the T-rex; its roar gets you 35 wilds!
Tarzan: Adventure awaits on another exciting video slot brought to you by Microgaming. In this 40 line slot Tarzan will swing, climb, yell and thump his chest as you cash in great wins. The upbeat music is what gives the game its likeability.

Click on the hippopotamus sleeping in the river to get even more wins.
Jungle Jim El Dorado: Another jungle adventure, but this time way back, in the era of the conquistadors. The game introduces us to Jim, a young explorer in the search for his fortune.

During this round, you can get multipliers even as high as x15.

This is a 5 reel, 20 pay line game, in which you can laugh at Hades’ antics as he tricks his enemies. With a super free spin mode that activates randomly and the quest for the helm which activates when three or more crystal helms are on the screen, you’re certain to have a blast when playing this game.
