We have got some exciting news for you today - We’re going live with more than 270 games from Microgaming and their partner development studios such as Slingshot Studios, Just for the Win, Rabcat and many more.
Microgaming needs no introduction to the world of Online Gambling, they literally built it. In 1994, they developed the world’s first true online casino software and a decade later, the world’s first mobile casino software. As a founding member of eCOGRA (e-Commerce Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance), they set the standard in fair gaming and they lead the way for other operators with their work in trying to promote healthy and responsible gambling.
They hold the Guinness World Record’s title for the largest ever jackpot paid out in an online slot from when a player won the equivalent of €18,915,872.81 from a 75 cent spin on Mega Moolah. Their progressive jackpot network has paid out over €1 billion in jackpot winnings. That is indeed some seriously mega moolah.
Sufficient to say, they are an integral part of Online Casino history, and now they are part of Scatters History too.
We asked around the team to pick their favourite Microgaming slot, to give you a good taste of what they have to offer. Here’s the list, enjoy!
Thunderstruck II is to Microgaming what Gonzo’s Quest is to Netent, arguably one of the most iconic slots in their games portfolio. This Norse mythos was one of the first online slots which offered the player a choice of free spins feature. Features were unlocked the more you played the game, although many agree that the Valkyrie Free Spins, which is your first option, is the best anyway.
It was so popular in fact, that Microgaming made a skin of the game - Immortal Romance. Amazingly enough, Immortal Romance grew to be on par with the original in popularity.
This is a Microgaming Classic with a capital C. This 9-line video slot was, for a long time, one of the most volatile slots you could play online. Just try googling the slot and you’ll be met by videos proclaiming “INSANE WIN”, “HUGE WIN” or “AMAZING HIT”. Now that you know this slot can pay, how about taking a shot at breaking the bank?
Tap your heels together three times and say “There’s no mechanic like Special Expanding Symbols”. After seeing the success of Book of Dead from PlaynGo and the launch of many other similar titles from studios, Microgaming finally released their first “Book of” slot, with the powerful and loved feature, in December 2018. It took off right away and was a smash hit for Microgaming. What’s unique about Book of Oz you ask? Well, the option to respin just one wheel to hit that third Book or that line of Magicians is pretty sweet.
Heck, this slot was so popular for Microgaming that they already came out with a Sequel. Book of Oz - Lock n Spin!
Our inhouse Italian chose Terminator 2 as his favourite slot. We’re wondering if this is because this is the only slot from Microgaming he knows. One thing is true, if you love the Austrian-American and everything he has done, then this is the game for you. Give it a spin and we’re sure you’ll be shouting “I’ll be Back!” and not “Get to the Choppah!”.
The Guinness world record slot was picked by our MD, because of it’s amazing, life-changing potential. Of course, the chances of hitting that Mega Moolah are very, very low. Let’s put it like this: we’ll put ten million dollars in a mailbox in the United States, for 10 cents, you get to guess the address! Would you do it? Probably not. Would you do it if it was 20 million? What about 30 million? See… this is how Jackpots work. Everyone has a number.
We’re absolutely delighted to have Microgaming on board and available for our players. Hope you enjoy their games as much as we do!
So go on, check out our amazing selection of Microgaming Slot Games.
Remember, slots are more fun with Scatters!
