The Microgaming platform is most definitely one that splits opinion, because whilst the casino side of the operation is impressive, the bingo side of the business struggles for fans. Nevertheless it is the preferred software provider for a number of well-known and successful brands including Butlers Bingo, Dream Bingo, Glossy Bingo and Rehab Bingo to name but a few, so they must be doing something right!
In terms of bingo, they are limited with just 75 and 90 ball variations available. Thanks to their experience in the casino industry though, they have made sure there is an abundance of slots and instant games and they are all of the highest quality, packed full of features and come complete with larger than average jackpots.
The Microgaming software comes with very few options compared to the competition and you can’t even mark your own cards as everything is automated, so a lot of the time you will find yourself just staring at the screen and not part of the action. They are home to a few unique features such as the audio pre-sets in the chat rooms, but before too long they become irritating so you just turn them off anyway!
All of the Microgaming powered brands are licensed in Malta and offer a free, no deposit bonus to get you started. When you do come to make a deposit though, they offer a large number of methods including some not found at other sites such as Click2Pay, Entropay and Click and Buy.
