Microgaming is one of the world’s leading casino games developers and has been in business since 1994 when they launched the first online casino. They are based in the Isle of Man and have over 700 games in their portfolio, that can be delivered in download format or straight to a player’s browser.
The live casino was launched in 2006 and their live games were formally approved by eCOGRA’s Seals Compliance Committee in 2008.
The live casino has 4 games, Live Blackjack, Live Roulette, Live Baccarat, Live Casino Hold’em & Sic Bo. The games are streamed from the Microgaming live casino studios in Canada, the Philippines, and Argentina.
The casinos have a choice of where they take the stream from, which depends on their taste, client base, and the licensing jurisdictions that they operate in.
The Live Casino Software product contains the following features which make it popular with players and casinos alike.
The Playboy Live Casino was launched by Microgaming in 2013 and is the first fully branded live casino. It has all the same games as the normal live casino, but it’s Playboy-branded and the dealers are dressed in the iconic Playboy uniforms.
Microgaming has a good product but they need to keep innovating to keep up with Evolution Gaming who has a wider selection of games that include 3 Card Poker and Caribbean Stud Poker.
In fact, during 2016 they signed a strategic deal with Evolution to replace their European-based installations with Evolution ones so they could concentrate more on the Asian and South American live casino markets.
It’s also good business as it gives their prospective clients a choice of which Live Casino to take. This can only be a good thing and will improve their ability to compete against other solution providers.
