Microgaming expands game selection

Just in time for Christmas, Microgaming has added some new titles to its already diverse and expansive collection. The company, which is located in the Isle of Man, is one of the longest-standing and most reputable gaming providers that works with hundreds of online casinos across the world.

The addition of new titles to its game selection is likely to be greeted with great anticipation and excitement by casino fans old and new.

Taking to the table

Microgaming recently added a number of new table games from Switch Studios, an independent studio that works exclusively for the gaming firm.

These six new table games are set to be immersive and high-quality, and perhaps most importantly, optimised for mobiles as well as desktops. In early December, Microgaming launched some variations of the classic Blackjack game: Atlantic City Blackjack, Vegas Strip Blackjack, Vegas Downtown Blackjack, and Classic Blackjack. On the 11th December, Vegas Single Blackjack will launch.

Each of these games contain the features the Standard Side Bets: Double Down, Insurance, and Split Hands, and aims to give players a smooth, trouble-free, and thrilling gaming experience.

A new Baccarat game will also launch alongside Vegas Single Blackjack, again with a new, sleek design that they hope players will love. It offers some exciting and unique features as players are able to peel, pull, rotate, and flip their cards. There is also a customisable Scorecard feature that players can tailor, Advanced Road Statistics and a Turbo Mode.

Innovation, style and the best selection of games

James Buchanan, Microgaming’s Director of Global Operations, said: “Each of the six creations realises Switch Studios’ ambition to refresh the table games market with exciting casino experiences. The suite of blackjack games, along with the new baccarat title, are sure to set the standard for a new breed of table gaming.”

Tom David, Head of Studio at Switch Studios followed with:

“Our latest blackjack and baccarat titles combine immersive gameplay with stunning visuals, to provide new and seasoned players with a thrilling, modern and enjoyable mobile-friendly gameplay experience both at home and on the go. Each game comes with a unique built-in feature allowing operators to put their own stamp on it, by applying their own branding to the felt colour, table logo stamp, card back colour and card back logo. We aim to bring innovation, style and the best selection of games to the online table gaming sector, and we look forward to creating more exclusive titles for Microgaming next year.”

Even more slots

It isn’t just the table games that are expanding over December, the slot selection is also growing. Microgaming recently released Ivory Citadel from Just For The Win, a slot set in the jungles of West Asia. This is in contrast to Hitman Slot or North Storm by Rabcat which is located deep in the snowy, forbidding mountains. These slots offer good visuals and enticing features that add more diversity to the collection of titles on offer.

Over the coming days and weeks, more titles are set to be released. Treasures of Lion City from Pulse 8 Studios is an adventurous slot that takes players to the seas of the East, while Foxium’s Stumpy McDoodles has an Irish party vibe with some fun and cheeky characters.

Addressing the expansion of their games, James Buchanan said:

“Microgaming continues to diversify its exclusive content offering this December, along with popular partner games. Each new release is packed with thrilling features, formats and unique themes, offering operators incredible choice. 2019 has been a particularly exciting and busy year for Microgaming, with more than 40 feature-rich exclusive new games released, including blockbuster branded titles such as the action-packed Lara Croft® Temples and Tombs™ and Village People® Macho Moves online slots. We’re looking forward to building on that momentum as we head into 2020, when we will be revealing another wave of exciting releases and announcements to shake up the new year.”
