Microgaming’s High Points So Far In 2016
Date Added: February 4, 2016
Let’s start by taking a quick look at some of the new games that Microgaming released on Wednesday 3rd February, 2016. One of these new games was a brand new mobile pokie called Lucky Zodiac and the other new games included Dragon Dance and Bikini Party, both of which are now available on desktop at sites like Crazy Vegas Casino, Jackpot City Casino, Royal Vegas Casino, Casino Mate and Golden Riviera Casino.
The manager and spokesperson for Golden Riviera Casino, Max Stern, commented on these new games saying, “We want to ensure that our players have endless entertainment; and by adding another three games to our collection, we’re sure that our players will never get bored as they have access to a vast array of games.” You can play on these new games either instantly in your web browser or from within Microgaming’s award winning casino download client, plus they are all available in the real money mode and in the free play demo mode.
Microgaming’s very latest award was handed to them at IGA 2016 (the International Gaming Awards). The 9th International Gaming Awards took place this year on Monday 1st February at The Savoy Hotel London. Microgaming’s VR Roulette ensured that they picked up the ‘Innovator of the Year’ award. Surprisingly this is not the first time that VR Roulette has helped Microgaming win an award. This leading software provider also picked up the ‘Digital Gaming Innovation’ award back in September 2015 at the Global Gaming Awards.
“…This award, the second of its kind in recent months, further cements our status as the creative force in our industry. It really is a fantastic achievement – well done to all involved,” said the Microgaming CEO, Roger Raatgever. These comments came directly from the Microgaming press desk where you can read the comments in full.
The other top story that involved Microgaming occurred at ICE Totally Gaming on Tuesday 2nd February. Microgaming, along with Betway Casino and UK player Jonathon Heywood, were all presented with official certificates from a Guinness World Records adjudicator, recognising the huge win that occurred at Betway Casino on October 6th, 2015.
“It was fantastic to welcome Jon to our stand at ICE for the official Guinness World Records certificate handover,” said the CEO. Mega Moolah ended up receiving the title for ‘Largest Jackpot Payout in an Online Slot Machine Game’. “Having spent some time with him today, I can honestly say it couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy. We’re proud to share the world record and look forward to creating our next jackpot millionaire,” added the CEO. 26-year-old Jonathon Heywood, from Cheshire, England, won a total of €17,879,645.12 from a £0.25p bet.
Also in February, Microgaming announced that it will be developing a new online pokie called Jurassic World after signing the necessary licensing agreement with Universal Brand Development. This new pokie should arrive all of our top-rated NZ online casinos at some point in late 2016.
