As a regular player at Giggle Bingo you have no doubt seen the name Microgaming attached to many of our games. But unless you have spent a lot of time looking into various gaming platforms and casino developers, it’s unlikely that you know very much about them, or why they are so many gaming sites first choice supplier.

So what’s the deal? Well, Microgaming has a very illustrious history. They claim to be the very first company to launch an online casino way back in 1994. When you think back to what using the Internet was like in the early 90’s, you will realise how impressive it is that they launched in a time of dial-up connections! Their games have come a long way since then, and still, to this day, have some of the best and most graphic rich titles available on the web.

Based in the Isle of Man, Microgaming continues to set trends and make history. By using resources and developers from countries as far away as South Africa, they are able to stay ahead of their competitors and provide the best experience to every player.

To date, Microgaming has launched more than 850 unique games and over 1,200 variants, and they continue to release new games on a monthly basis. Microgaming’s extensive range of products includes not only casino and Bingo software, but also mobile and land based games, sportsbook and business solutions and live dealer and Quickfire games. They have focused extensively on the mobile market in recent years and have expanded their offering rapidly to include a wide portfolio of games optimised for enjoyment on iOS, Android and other popular platforms. A mix of proprietary and licensed content is released and the brand is renowned for creating top game titles, with ground breaking slots such as Tomb Raider, Thunderstruck and The Dark Knight amongst them.

Microgaming is also famous for having the largest progressive jackpot network in the world while smash hit slot Mega Moolah has broken records by paying out over £13,000,000 to a player in the UK.

Microgaming has not only won several awards in its years of operation, it was also integral in the establishment of eCOGRA (e-Commerce and Online Game Regulation and Assurance) and has always been an advocate for fair, safe play. This online casino software brand has grown from strength to strength, and its incredible reputation is certainly well deserved.
