Isle of Man-based online gaming software developer Microgaming has scooped yet another major accolade. The company walked away with a win in the category of Mobile Product at this year’s International Gaming Awards, the 10th of its kind, which was held at the InterContinental London Park Lane on Monday 6 February.
Microgaming is known as one of the most prolific pioneers of mobile gaming, having developed the world’s first ever mobile casino software back in 2004. Since then, the company has gone on to develop a massive portfolio of mobile casino games, comprising over 350 game titles that have been optimised for play across 3,000 mobile devices.
New Microgaming mobile games also hit mobile casinos on a monthly basis at least. As well as classic 3 reel slots for iOS and other popular operating systems, the developer’s portfolio currently offers mobile video slots, mobile progressive slots, mobile Megaspin slots and a variety of mobile table games, including live dealer titles.
In August last year, Microgaming’s famed Mega Moolah progressive slot also made headlines in the mobile realm. The slot, which is known for its impressive payouts, generated the biggest ever jackpot win on mobile, paying out an immense €7,968,311.26 prize.
This has only boosted the popularity of Microgaming’s mobile gaming products, which are available at over 350 premium online casino brands. The win in the Mobile Product category has proven further that Microgaming’s mobile offerings are some of the best in the business, and will continue to attract discerning players from across the globe.
Microgaming CEO Roger Raatgever has expressed his excitement at his company’s latest accolade at the International Gaming Awards. He said that Microgaming is very proud to have won the award, and revealed that they had predicted that mobile gaming would soon become the future way back in 2004 when they developed the first casino software for mobile use.
He went on, saying that it is great for Microgaming to be receiving widespread recognition for its hard work and dedication, and also to be viewed by the iGaming industry as having a top-quality mobile product to offer.
