Microgaming Hits Milestone With 400th Casino Game

The day has finally come - Microgaming has officially surpassed the 400 mark. No, I'm not referring to their stock listing, although that could be. What I am referring to is Microgaming's ever expanding portfolio of online casino games. Undoubtedly the most prolific online gambling software developer in business today, not to mention a pioneering founder of the online gambling industry itself, Microgaming has kept bettors on their toes since day one.

Receiving the honors of being Microgaming's 400th online casino game is the video slot, The Great Galaxy Grab. Characteristic with all of Microgaming's other powerhouse video slots, Great Galaxy Grab features eye-popping CGI 3-D graphics, a unique theme with fun entertainment value, and a myriad of bonuses and features. These include a chance to win 10 free spins with 3x multipliers on winnings and six different ongoing bonuses as game play progresses.

Another outstanding feature of this video slot, which seems to be the norm these days for many of Microgaming's bonus video slots, are the number of playing levels offered. Keeping game play from getting old, Great Galaxy Grab remembers each level where players leave off, thus unfolding like a video game with changing backgrounds and scenery. Largely thanks to rival developers at Rival Gaming Software (no pun intended), whose innovative iSlot is more like an animated feature film than a slot machine, the traditional online slot is evolving by leaps and bounds.

In terms of quantity, no other online casino software developer has more slots than Microgaming. One only need do the math to see that considering there are only so many table games and video poker machines available in the largest of online casinos, to deduce that Microgaming has hundreds of video slot titles under their belt. And as Microgaming likes to throw out at their chief competitors - Cryptologic and Playtech - most of their new games are original titles, rather than branded versions of pop culture items and brick 'n mortar casino games.

And since we're talking about Microgaming, now is as good a time as any to relay the news that two poker players participating in a Microgaming Network poker room were awarded with a $120,000 bad beat jackpot. Not a bad turnaround for a losing streak, eh? Well, in actuality, there was no losing streak. A rare occurrence, but one that occurs nonetheless, a bad beat jackpot is awarded when a very good hand of poker is still beat out by another hand. In this case, both players tied with a four-of-a-kind. Since they were at a designated bad-beat table, the jackpot was awarded.
