Microgaming Software Systems Ltd
Microgaming Software Systems Ltd. is a privately held software development company based in the Isle of Man. The company has been around since the 1990’s and claimed to have developed the first online casino software in 1994. Today they are one of the leading global providers of online casino games with a portfolio of more than six hundred games, including slots, video poker, blackjack and roulette to offer their customer. The company has mostly provided games in download and Flash formats up until now, but industry experts have noticed a shift in demand for games in HTML5 format that can render better cross platform compatibility, so, the attention of Microgaming is also shifting in that direction.
Microgaming runs an online poker network, known as The MPN; the software they use allows players to access multiplayer poker games against real people in real-time. The MPN was the first online poker network to offer Anonymous Tables in an attempt to make player tracking tools ineffective. In November 2013, the network became among the first to offer a fully integrated achievement system.
The company also offers a number of progressive jackpots, which is a slot machine or video poker service, where the value of the jackpot increases by small increments after each game, this keeps happening as the player continues spinning, unless the player actually wins the jackpot or quits.
