Although primarily an online casino specialist, Microgaming has started to improve on its bingo reputation by bringing introducing the kind of cutting-edge technology that has made it such a behemoth in the casino industry. This was vividly illustrated by its 2013 award for innovation in bingo.
Despite playing catch-up to other, more celebrated bingo operators, Microgaming’s progress is such that players should feel assured of its reputability, trustworthiness and quality.
However, in some areas 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.
Nevertheless, 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 casino slot.
It’s not hard to see why sites like to work with Microgaming, 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 among the best online casino games ever developed.
In addition to bingo and online slots, Microgaming also offers a range of other games which include scratch cards and table games. And because many progressive jackpots run through the Microgaming network, there’s a real chance to win some big money.
For example, in 2012 a player scored a £5.8 million win of the progressive jackpot on The Dark Knight slot on Butlers Bingo.
There are several networked and standalone bingo rooms on Microgaming sites. Each room offers its own unique offers. The Friendship Lounge for example has BOGOF games, progressive jackpots and guaranteed jackpots.
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 distinctive and polished appearance it’s developers implement on each site. Butlers Bingo, for example exudes class and luxury with its royal purple and gold colour scheme.
