Microgaming was founded on the Isle of Man, and in 1994 launched the world's first online casino. Today their software is the backbone of more than 120 online casinos, and they've proven themselves as a pioneer and a trendsetter in the online gambling sector.

The year after their groundbreaking casino launch, the company developed and released a set of tools that allowed their clients to manage an online casino and to track the behaviour and usage of their players. The quality of their tools meant that they quickly became one of the most preferred system providers to a growing number of online casino operators.

But their influence doesn't end simply at software design. In 1997 Microgaming became the founding member of the Interactive Gaming Council, a forum for the online gambling industry to meet and discuss issues affecting them.

Later they were also a founding member of the eCommerce and Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance (eCOGRA) organisation, a significant body that defines standards of honesty, fairness and transparency for its certified members, and provides an interface for players to voice any disputes that may arise.

Microgaming's most famous piece of software is called Viper, and can be downloaded from any casino that runs the Microgaming platform. Viper provides the interface through which players interact with a Microgaming enabled casino. It provides realistic graphics and sounds that give players as close to a real casino experience as is possible.

Viper also allows players to configure their level of skill so that the games they play will be enjoyable for them. The range of games available is dazzling – the average casino powered by Viper has around 300 titles available to their players, including now classic casino games like 10-Player Power Poker, Bonus Blackjack and video slots, and more arcade style titles like their licensed Tomb Raider series.

Microgaming also provides a great deal of software in the web-based arena. For this type of game, a player doesn't download software to their computers, but instead plays games directly inside their web browsers. They load very quickly, allowing players to get going as soon as they log into the casino.

Beyond automated games, Microgaming have also developed a system that leverages a real casino dealer to play card games with online players. Dubbed LiveDealer, the system allows online players to view the dealer and their hands via live streaming video broadcast from webcams.

Microgaming is also famous for running some of the richest networked progressive jackpots in history, and is estimated to have paid out in excess of $200,000,000 in winnings so far. Some of their more famous jackpots include Roulette Royale, Major Millions, Poker Ride and Mega Moolah.

Staying on the cutting edge, the company is currently throwing its weight behind gambling platforms for mobile devices such as cellphones and PDAs, which many perceive as the future of remote gambling.
