The UK game provider has been in the lead, and although it is not officially confirmed, many sources claim that Microgaming was the first company ever to open an online casino. What we all can agree with is that Microgaming today is one of the world’s largest game providers, and you’ll find their games at several UK online casinos.
So what has the world’s largest game maker been doing lately? As you know, it’s never a dull moment in the gaming industry, and Microgaming is no exception. Just not too long ago, the game giant launched the new year by delivering two brand new slot machines.
Huangdi The Yellow Emperor
The first game, Huangdi The Yellow Emperor, has a clear Chinese theme. In this slot game, you get up with the emperor in his quest for riches. The game has five reels and 25 pay lines and offers wilds both in the main game and in the free-spin mode. Although there are a lot of casino games with the Chinese theme, Microgaming has got this video slot to stand out. Our impression is that they made an effort and the game feels more elaborate than many other of their game titles. Among other things, they have replaced the generic coin rain with ancient antique gold coins that fit the theme. The music has been recorded with real Chinese instruments in Microgaming’s premises, and the result is a compelling soundtrack that adds to the gameplay.
Life of Riches
This year’s second game takes us from ancient China right into modern times. And now it’s all about glitter and glamor. Life of Riches is all about jet set life. The symbols on the reels consist of luxury wrecks, private planes, golf courses, yachts, and other animal guns. And everything takes place on five reels and 30 pay lines. In a free-spin mode, your winnings double, and if you get stacked wilds in the free-spin mode, you also win four-fold. The game immediately gives us a rather fast-paced gaming experience to suit the theme. The music for the thought of the 80’s disco and the music along with the changing background colors make it easy to get along!
Jackpot from Microgaming
It would have been strange if the world’s largest game provider did not offer any progressive jackpot games. Of course, we find games of this kind in Microgaming’s game portfolio and when it comes to jackpot games, Mega Moolah Microgaming’s flagship. So far, the progressive jackpots in the Mega Moolah Games have paid out worth half a billion euros, and the jackpot network is the largest in the world.
The Mega Moolah series consists of four games, all of which are linked to the same jackpots. Games differ when it comes to theme and game functions, and so there are many ways to win the dream. Mega Moolah has also ended up in Guinness Records. Just two years ago, a UK player won £13m on the game. It’s the biggest win we’ve ever seen in a progressive jackpot game.
