Microgaming welcomes American Slots from Gameburger

Microgaming inks exclusivity contract with all new Gameburger Studios. Earlier this week, Microgaming hailed the launch of Relic Seekers, a new fantasy adventure online slot machine from their exclusive content partners at Pulse 8 Studios. What sets that digital gaming lab apart from many of their others partners is its predilection and aptitude for building Asian themed games. Why this seemingly irrelevant detail stands out so much to me is that just one day later, Microgaming was lauding a new exclusivity contract with a very different kind of iGaming software company, Gameburger Studios. This latest partner is a perfect parallel, with a team that focuses its energy primarily on the development of distinctly American slots games. With diversity and rapid expansion being prominent goals for the owners of the Quickfire portfolio, I’d say Microgaming is doing a rather fantastic job lately. In fact, I think they’d got this business figured … Continue reading

Flash Casinos to Disappear by Late 2020

Gone in a Flash: HTML5 open web tech to power 100% iGaming in 2020. Anyone who’s browsed the web for ten years or more should be well aware of the impact Flash technology has had on the computer-verse. In the 1990s, it gave birth to a whole new realm of possibilities. Everything from animated graphics, to in-browser video games, to entire websites were built in Flash; all powered by the universal Adobe Flash plug-in. In 2017, Adobe announced an “end of life” for Flash to come in late 2020. At that point, updates to the multimedia software project were abandoned. In response, Google Chrome developers turned off Flash and disabled the ‘ask to run‘ option by default. Anyone wishing to run Flash, or even get a message asking to run it, would have to enable it manually in their browser – not just once, but every browsing session. Some called … Continue reading

Tiki Vikings Online Slot Defies Logic, Pays Dividends

Slots makers Microgaming and JFTW deliver a clash of themes in Tiki Vikings Slot. Some things go great together – peanut butter and jelly, ice cream and chocolate syrup, coffee and cinnamon rolls, Barney and Betty Rubble. Other things, well, not so much – milk and lemon juice, strawberries and mustard, water and circuit boards. But sometimes, things a clash of logical pairings may be just what the doctor ordered. In terms of digital slot machines, let’s face it – thematically speaking, everything that can be done, has been done. Or has it? All logical themes have been covered, sure, but what about the less logical variety? The idea of basing new games on a purposeful clash of themes opens the doors wide for a whole new barrage of never imagined online slots themes. Who better to tap into this volatile new concept than Microgaming‘s exclusive content partners at Just … Continue reading

The Real Deal on Max Betting Slot Machines

Tips for the Conservative Slots Lover: Do I have to bet max to win big? Having played, studied and documented my experiences in the online gambling community for well over a decade now, I get asked a lot of questions. Some are no-brainers. Others are far more complex. Over the weekend, I was asked a rather smart question that I believe deserves a thorough answer. The question was this… Do I really have to bet max to win big on the slots? Casinos would love for you to believe that betting max coins is the only way to produce a big win. After all, slot machines are their bread and butter. Land-based casinos devote the majority of their real estate to these games, knowing that players will flock to them, despite knowing these games are among the worst-paying amusements on the floor. Online casinos aren’t so bad. They have endless … Continue reading
