The World of Games with Microgaming

It cannot be verified for sure when the first internet casino was put online. However, the history of online casinos began in 1994 when Microgaming invited the international gambling community to its gambling tables and slot machines. Today, the gambling software company with 150 employees offers about 800 different casino and poker games for download and browser in more than 1,200 versions. Just under 250 of these games are available on mobile devices. Among them, there are more than 40 progressive jackpots like the legendary Mega Moolah Major and Mega, Cash Splash, The Dark Knight, Treasure Nile, Fruit Fiesta, Lots a Look and many more. Apart from games for online casinos, Microgaming also produces software for land-based casinos.

A Gambling Software Company Sets New Standards

Usability, exceptionally high safety standards and the possibility to integrate products from other software companies via its platform Quickfire - these are the trademarks of Microgaming. Its broad range of games for online casinos and poker rooms with payout tables and other important information is available in more than 40 languages. The company is one of the founding members of the eCOGRA (eCommerce Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance) and the IGC (Interactive Gaming Council). These independent organizations set the standards for gambler protection and fair gambling in a safe environment. They also supervise their implementation.

Variety à la Microgaming

This software company offers more or less all known gambling games and poker variations but also several innovative or exotic casino games as well as later editions of classic casino games and self-developed games. Countless slot machines are the highlights of Microgaming. Gamblers can choose from nostalgic fruit machines with three reels and few pay lines or standard slot machines with 9 to 50 pay lines. Spectacular video slots with 243 (sometimes more) winning options are also available. Since 2014, Microgaming has offered selected slot machines like Game of Thrones in two versions - with individually selectable pay lines or constantly active winning combinations.

Net Entertainment - First-class Casino Games from Sweden

NetEnt Ltd. (founded in 1996) is listed on the Stockholm stock exchange and belongs to the pioneers of online gaming. Initially, the company developed gambling software only in Stockholm for five own casinos (between 2000 and 2002). After selling those casinos a few years later, NetEnt focused on its core business: software development and management operating systems for online casinos. Currently, NetEnt’s portfolio includes more than 200 games, among them such entirely different slot games as Jack and the Beanstalk, Gonzo's Quest, Lights and Blood Suckers. The complete solution CasinoModule™ is available in more than 20 languages and earned the Scandinavians a place among the Top Twenty of internet gaming products. Meanwhile, NetEnt especially focuses on mobile gaming, namely on innovative products like Touch™ for iOS, Android and Windows.

International Licenses and RNG Certification

As a worldwide operating gambling software provider, Net Entertainment has licenses available that are also approved by Gambling Control Commissions outside the European Union. The UK Gambling Commission (Great Britain) and the Gambling Commission of Gibraltar, Malta and Alderney are among those official institutions that have to approve every single newly-developed game. There are also certifications issued by iTech Labs and eCogra, two independent monitoring boards for online gambling systems, confirming that the random number generator (RNG) generates winning numbers, symbols and card combinations unpredictably and irreproducibly. Additionally the E-Commerce and Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance (eCogra) audits NetEnt on a yearly basis.

Gambler’s Heaven with Numerous Highlights

Of course, NetEnt offers a great variety of casino games including tabletop games and card games as well as live dealer games. But what makes the gambler’s heart leap for joy? Yes, NetEnt slot games with many attractive details like stacked symbols, expanding wilds or avalanche reels with always new modifications. There is a full range of games: classic slot machines with 9 paylines like Dead or Alive; branded games like Aliens or Jack Hammer 2 developed in cooperation with Universal, 20th Century Fox or South Park Studios; and really crazy creations like Elements: The Awakening or Jack and the Beanstalk. What’s more, NetEnt comes up with high progressive jackpots: Icy Wonders and Cosmic Fortune are among the most popular ones.

AMATIC Casino Games - Know-how From Scratch

Shortly after its foundation in 1993, the AMATIC Trading GmbH became one of the most famous providers of high-tech gambling machines, casino solutions and online casino games. The highly experienced founder and CEO Reinhold Bauer and the idea of developing high-quality, cutting-edge gaming products together with excellent customer services are the keys to its success. In 2010, AMATIC developed a casino app for iTunes and opened up the world of internet for themselves.

Responsible Gaming is AMATIC’s Main Idea

At AMATIC Industries, the protection of gamblers isn’t just an empty phrase. The company works closely together with authorities and research institutes in Austria, Switzerland and Germany. AMATIC takes its leading role in the world of gambling seriously by cooperating only with casinos officially certified by gambling commissions. These casinos only are allowed to offer AMATIC games and other products.

AMATIC’s Online Games

Many of its attractive and detailed video slots play in the world of fairy tales, myths and adventures, among them such popular slot machines like Eye of Ra, Wild Shark and Wolf Moon. But no matter if it is a classic fruit slot machine with three reels (like Hot 27) or a complex video slot like Dragons Pearl -  every game will be put through its paces in “the real world” before it will be released. All AMATIC games - from slot machines, bingo and video poker to blackjack and roulette - run on high-tech terminals first. Maybe this performance test is the key to the digital success of AMATIC Slots and table games.

Honored Games Made in Austria

By now, the game developers from the Alps are used to be internationally awarded. AMATIC’s slot machines and games are exported to more than 30 countries. At the Latin America Gaming Exposition Expoazar (ELA) in 2012, AMATIC was honored with the “As de Oro”. The Golden Ace is one of the most prestigious awards in the gaming industry. AMATIC got this award for its special performance in the category “Innovations in the Multi Game Sector”. Back in Austria, AMATIC Industries is also known for its high quality standards. Such as in 2011, the company was appreciated for its high-quality education program.

Born to Play - Oryx Gaming

The whole world of gambling in a nutshell: This is Oryx Gaming. Founded in 2010, Oryx always wanted to offer nothing less than a complete solution for internet casinos. This solution includes a colorful mixture of specifically developed slot machines, traditional casino games, first-class customer service, social and mobile gaming as well as security packages for data protection and fraud prevention. It’s optional to integrate games of other game developers and betting offers via Microgaming Quickfire.

Safety and Gamble Protection are included

Oryx Gaming is run with a license by the renowned Malta Gaming Authority and therefore is part of the gambling industry officially licensed for the inner-European Market. This license issued by the European Union guarantees legal compliance and an official contact person. A license can be obtained after the certification of the Random Number Generator (RNG) by the Gaming Laboratories International, a worldwide renowned institution reviewing if the RNG is in line with the industry standards for regulated gambling.

Slot Machines and Popular Casino Classics

Oryx Gaming calls its product line eye candy games. And that’s for a reason: The small, but excellently composed business portfolio ranges from blissfully weird slot machines with absurd features to several roulette variations to so-called simple games like Keno and Bingo. Apart from slot machines, Oryx is especially focused on video poker. Besides the indispensable basic game Jacks or Better, the company also offers Aces & Faces, Deuces Wild and Joker Poker - the most popular poker games at online casinos. Classic casino card games like Blackjack (multiplayer and single hand), Baccarat and Casino Hold’em can also be found in Oryx’s portfolio.

Fanciful Slot Games and Progressive Jackpots

It isn’t all about winning millions: The progressive jackpots of Absolute Fruit and Lotto is my Motto are mostly five-digit. And almost each of the standard jackpot slot machines surprises with bonus features for extra cash as well as many hours of gaming fun, if you choose playing in fun mode. Steal into the Louvre at night with the Art Bandits; assign penalties in Mundial Fever; and deal with the mad hatter in Fairytale Forest...
