Check the listing of casual games available in Microgaming casinos.
As the old saying goes, “You pays your money and you takes your choice.” In games of keno and bingo, a great deal of the fun lies in the act of choice – that is, choosing and / or marking your lucky numbers. Of course, there is also a sense of anticipation, knowing that at any moment someone will win, determined only by the results of the RNG (Random Number Generator). Bingo has the added fun and sociability of the in game chat room. It is a game that has become very popular online where it can be enjoyed by people from all over the world.
Although not associated with land based casinos, bingo has become a very popular form of gambling online, usually as the main event at dedicated bingo sites. Bingo tends to be quite affordable for those with limited gaming budgets. Players can wager small amounts, with cards that may cost only pennies each. Most of the Microgaming bingo sites also offer at least a few free games. Internet bingo, like its land based counterpart, is a very sociable event. Chat hosts encourage player interaction and come up with lighthearted games to keep the mood upbeat.
Established in 1994 as a casino games software developer, Microgaming expanded into the bingo business in 2006 with a stand alone, pay to play network launched by Bingo Tek. Its first bingo licensee was Crazy Vegas, which, interestingly, was motivated by a desire to drive more traffic to its casino games. Over the years Microgaming has continued to improve its bingo software. Its network of bingo rooms now comprises approximately one dozen sites.
Microgaming offers British style 90 Ball Bingo and its American cousin, 75 Ball Bingo. A great selection of Microgaming bingo games are available, namely Standard, Promo, Super Promos, High Rollers, Square Deal, and Cash Blitz. Progressive jackpots, those excitingly huge payouts that most gamers are so fond of, are a part of some of MGS’s bingo games.
Microgaming’s bingo software has a number of key features. The bingo games are instant play and do not involve any downloads. Graphics combine technical excellence with player appeal. Players can choose their preference from a large number of languages. Professional moderated bingo room chat and customer support are accessible 24/7.
Enjoy the excitement of a full on horse race at any time you wish – day or night. You don’t even have to like horses to love this awesome game. Whether galloping or trotting, the four legged equine heroes shine in Microgaming’s racing games. Games are complete with such authentic details as a virtual weather report and amusingly distinguished sounding names for the thoroughbreds, such as Runny Prawn or Terrific Tornado. The games do not include actual smells of stables so they are truly enjoyable by all!
There is a whole range of games that could be called “other.” These Microgaming casual games can’t be fitted into one specific category. They may draw on popular non-gambling Internet games, newly customized for the casino scene, like Triangulation. Or their roots may be in old time carnival games, such as Pick ‘n’ switch. Whatever their origins, these games are a lot of fun and a refreshing change when you want something a bit out of the ordinary run of casino amusements.
Last but not least are the skill games. While the majority of Microgaming’s novelty games are totally random and based on sheer luck, the skill games call for a combination of both luck and expertise on the part of the player. This adds even more to the fun and excitement factor.
