Microgaming Adding More Progressive Slots in September
The world of online gambling is a fast-moving one, with new casinos and game development studios opening all the time. However, a select few companies have been around since the very start and they keep going strong despite the competition.
Microgaming is one name near the very top of that list. Launched back in 1994, they’ve built a name for themselves as one of the leading slots’ developers and the go-to provider for those looking for real money action. Even those that currently play free video poker games may want to keep them in mind in case they decide to venture over to the real money games.
Although the company has a very rich portfolio of popular titles, it’s their progressive jackpot games that really helped them stand out from the rest. The ball really started rolling with their Mega Moolah slot, which was launched back in 2012, and has since made dozens of lucky millionaires.
But Microgaming hasn’t been resting on its laurels. Lately, the company has been working hard to expand the range of slots included in their global progressive network resulting in several brand new releases in 2020. They don’t seem to be done yet, though, as there are two more progressive slots that should hit the virtual shelves of online casinos in September.
New Mega Moolah Slot
The first of the two is the latest addition to the Mega Moolah progressive network, schedule to go live on September 22. Called Fortunium Gold: Mega Moolah, the slot is being developed by the same studio behind the original Fortunium title, Stormcraft Studios.
Players will once again be able to immerse themselves into a steampunk adventure featuring familiar characters named Victoria and Maximillian. Symbols on the reels represents various mechanical marvels of this fantasy world and the exciting background music adds to the overall atmosphere.
In addition to featuring 40 paylines across five reels alongside Mystery Reels, Win Boosters, and other special features, the game also offers a possibility of winning one of four Mega Moolah jackpots. To trigger the jackpot reel, players need to land mystery reels and have them reveal the jackpot symbols.
Fortunium Gold: Mega Moolah features a mobile-friendly design allowing players to enjoy the game the way they prefer – on their home computers or while on the go.
Win up to 5,000x with Noble Sky
The final release for this month will go live on September 29. It is the slot called Noble Sky developed by Neon Valley Studios, another one of Microgaming’s partners. While the game won’t be part of any of the major progressive networks, it will feature an attractive jackpot of 5,000 times the stake.
Noble Sky features top-quality graphics and a number of entertaining features to keep the players’ busy. The jackpot feature is triggered randomly and it features a pick-and-click screen. The goal is to match three gems of the same color to win the corresponding bonus. Finding three yellow gems will award the Grand Jackpot, which is always 5,000 times the stake.
A Game-rich Month
So far in September, Microgaming has already released two new games created by their partner studios. Book of Atem: WowPot was developed by All41Studios and went live at the start of the month. This was the second new game to feature the WowPot progressive jackpot.
The jackpot network was soon boosted by yet another game, this time coming from the Tripe Edge Studios’ workshop. Entitled Sisters of Oz: WowPot, the game was initially launched as an exclusive on the Betsson brand and was well-received by the players.
For some companies, this would be more than enough for a month but not for Microgaming. The developer has been really pushing forward to further secure its market position and creating new jackpot titles seems to be their way of doing it.
In addition to bolstering their jackpot offering, Microgaming has also launched a few regular slots during September. Games such as Almighty Aztec, Stellar Portals, and Spectre Estate were all launched during the month and they were all developed by partner studios.
More Big Wins & More Diversity
In the last couple of years, Microgaming has been focusing on diversifying their portfolio and one of the main ways of doing so was partnering up with smaller game development studios. With Microgaming providing technical and other kinds of support on one side and these studios bringing their creativity and imagination on the other, these partnerships have been largely successful.
Thanks to a great number of these deals in the recent period, the company has been able to add a lot of color to their gaming library, launching games with top-notch graphics, unique features, and, of course, big jackpots.
With three months still to go in 2020, this is not the last we’ll see from Microgaming. By the end of the year, the company will likely further boost its portfolio with more new titles keeping both the players and the casino operators on their toes.
