Microgaming is the second biggest gaming software provider of the world. Its gaming portfolio has introduced many players to the world of online gaming. With hundreds of unique slots and table games, Microgaming is a developer every player knows. Online casinos all over the world gladly offer Microgaming games since games made by this developer always seem to deliver. Large groups of players exclusively choose casinos that offer Microgaming games because they are likely to be full of adventurous stories. Storytelling is one of Microgaming’s biggest qualities, which you will be quick to notice when we discuss Microgaming’s most popular games.
What you should know about Microgaming
Microgaming was originally established on the Isle of Man, where it currently still hold house because of its friendly stance on online gaming. It claims to have developed the first online casino, which might be possible since Microgaming was founded in 1994. Currently, Microgaming games can be found in hundreds of casinos and has a portfolio of over 600 games. There are about 300 people working at Microgaming, who either work at their headquarters or at one of the smaller independent developers contracted to Microgaming. As you are going to find out very soon, the independent developers are what makes Microgaming what it is today.
But Microgaming is most famous for its enormous jackpots. Mega Moolah, which we are going to talk about soon, has awarded jackpots over a billion Rupees. If you are searching for jackpot slots, Microgaming is the place to go.
A safe and secure gaming environment
From a gaming operator that has been active since 1994 and claims to have developed the first online casino, you can expect a safe gaming environment. According to many different audits, Microgaming’s software is extremely safe to play in. All data is sent encrypted through SSL-connections. According to the UK Gambling Commission Microgaming has taken all necessary measures to ensure players of a safe gaming experience.
This is also true for their RNG, the most important part of a casino when it comes to reliability. The RNG, short for Random Number Generator, ensures players of a completely random outcome when playing a game.
Let’s say you’re playing a game of roulette. Each time a dealer fires off a new round, you of course want the outcome to be completely randomized. If this wouldn’t be the case, it would be theoretically possible for the casino to cheat. And for you too.
With a true random RNG, each outcome is 99,9999% random. It is impossible for you and the casino to know which number is going to fall next.
The RNG is also used for all video slot games, which need to be random as well. You want to have the same chance of hitting the jackpot the first round as you do in the last round. If there would be a mechanism that was set to unlock the jackpot at a certain number of rounds, a casino could theoretically only award a jackpot when you’ve spent more than you could ever receive. This scenario is impossible when a casino uses Microgaming’s RNG.
Decent Return-to-Player percentages and excellent payouts
There is a big difference between the return-to-player percentages and payouts on video slots. The higher the potential payout is, the lower the return-to-player percentage might be. Most online video slot have a minimum average of 95% return-to-player percentage. This means that out of every 100 coins you spent on a video slot, you should, on average, return with 95. If you have more than average luck, you might wind up with 100, 150 or even a multiple of this in coins. If you’re however unlucky, you might end with substantially less coins.
This so-called return-to-player percentage should be around 96% for most Microgaming games that you play. If you however want to have a chance of hitting it big on one of its jackpot slots, the return-to-player percentage is likely to be somewhere around 94 to 96%.
Because Microgaming (and other developers) simply know that these slots are extremely popular because of its jackpots, they feel that they deserve a wider margin on jackpot slots than ordinary slots. For you as player, this is useful information since you now know you get a better deal on ordinary slots than jackpot slots.
