Despite having most experience in the online casino industry, Microgaming has started to improve on its bingo reputation. This was no less in evidence when they won an award for innovation in bingo in 2013.
And despite the catching up that Microgaming generally need to do in the bingo department to fall into line with other software operators, players should feel confident that they are a high quality and trusted casino games name.
Microgaming is at a disadvantage when compared to other software providers. For example, they only the 3 types of bingo game (90 ball, 75 ball and 75 ball variant.) They also don’t offer anything that can compete against Virtue Fusion ‘s Deal or No Deal and Lucky numbers variant games.
However, in 2014, they looked to try and improve upon their standing, by launching Immortal Romance Bingo. This is an innovative bingo variant based on the extremely popular slot.
It’s not hard to see why sites still like to work with Microgaming though, because by doing so they gain the right to feature some top online casino games. The Dark Knight slot and its sequel, as well as Immortal Romance, are all some of the best online casino games every developed.
In addition to bingo and online slots, Microgaming also offer a range of other games which include scratch cards and table games. The potential to win huge amounts is there through the progressive jackpots running across the Microgaming network.
There are several networked and standalone bingo rooms on the Microgaming sites. Each room offers its own unique offers. The Friendship Lounge for example has BOGOF games, progressive jackpots and guaranteed jackpots.
Along with online slots there are also scratch cards and table games to play and there's the possibility of huge wins as there are progressive jackpots running across the Microgaming network.
For example, in 2012 a player scored a £5.8 million win of the progressive jackpot on The Dark Knight slot on Butlers Bingo.
Microgaming has generally less varied promotions than providers such as Dragonfish and Virtue Fusion. The plus side is that these promotions tend to be generous, albeit not very well advertised on the sites. Another thing to note is that there are restrictive wagering requirements on withdrawing any winnings from the bonuses received.
In general, Microgaming sites are few, but worth using if you especially want to try out sites “before you buy”, due to their no deposit offers. The loyalty schemes on many of the sites are very attractive too, which should encourage players to remain loyal to the site.
Another factor to its growing success is the very individual and high quality look it gives to each site. Butlers Bingo for example exudes class and luxury with its royal purple and gold colour scheme.
