Microgaming Casinos

Microgaming developed their first online casino software in 1994. Since then, Microgaming has continued to be a leader in the field of online software. Microgaming software powers over 120 casinos and 40 poker rooms. Microgaming is based in the Isle of Man.

In 2002, Microgaming casinos set the world record for the largest online jackpot win with $1,500,000 on the Major Millions. That same year, they were named Best System Provider by Gaming Express Magazine, and Microgaming also won Gambling Online Magazineís Players Choice Award. In 2003, Microgaming won Gambling Online Magazineís Top Casino Software Award. They won the same award in 2004, and also added the Editorís Pick Award to the list.

In 2006, Microgaming's progressive jackpot total exceeded $200,000,000 with over 5,675 winners. And online slots jackpots is what Microgaming casinos have become known for, more than anything else.

In 2007, all Microgaming casinos were closed to residents of Nevada, as well as any other state which specifically prohibited Internet gambling. (There are 11 states total which have this restriction.) This was a direct result of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act being passed by Congress.

As of January 2011, Microgaming is still not open to US players. Find reviews of Microgaming casinos and a online gambling software comparisons chart at onlinecasino.net
