Top 10 Microgaming slots. Best of the best. (2020 update)

Oct 17, 2017 Artyom Ustinov

Right from the start, Microgaming claimed to be the leader in the online gambling industry. In 1996 the company becomes a member of Interactive Gaming Council — a non-profit organization aimed to provide the highest possible level of fairness and transparency in the gambling industry. And in 2003 was among the founding members of eCOGRA — an international non-profit organization overseeing fair gaming, player protection, and responsible operator conduct.

In 2004 Microgaming develops the first mobile game and now the mobile portfolio contains about 350 games for smartphones, tablets, and smartwatches.

The supreme quality of Microgaming soft is well known both among the gamblers and operators (“all Microgaming” casinos is a common profitable practice). In the last 23 years, the company has received over 50 international awards and has managed to appear in the Guinness Book of Records for the “Largest jackpot payout in an online slot machine game” (13 213 838.68 pounds).

What’s so special?

  • There’s a significant difference between the “old school” and the “new school” slots (created after 2014). The old soft has 10-15 traditional paylines and the new versions contain up to 243. This is a gambling trend, a market requirement that was successfully implemented.
  • Microgaming creates the “long cycle” slots. It means that the gambler usually spends more time and money to get the winning combination, but at the end the cash amount is higher.
  • The volatility is higher, so the chances to win are higher as well.

The RTP of 9 Masks of Fire is set at 96.24% and is considered a medium variance slot.

Although the game has a low RTP percentage — only 88.12%, the 5×3 grid with 25 paylines and 4 different jackpots you can hit more than makes up for it.

2020 Update

Microgaming is undoubtedly one of the most prolific software producers in the business whose new releases quickly find their way to top slot charts. The year 2020 has started off amazingly for Microgaming, as they have already released a few new titles with many more yet to come.

On the other hand, the Double Lucky Line slot is an Asia-inspired slot with dragons and totems of good fortune as its symbols that will form wins based on a five-reel and 17-payline grid. The bonus features include Double Lucky Line special feature that makes sure double symbols land on the centre reel to increase the win potential, plus a variety of random Wilds, free spins, and Scatter symbols.

The African Quest slot game is the third and latest release by Microgaming and Triple Edge Studios and includes a safari-themed slot with 5 reels and 1,024 paylines. The sound of savanna and roaring lions will make you feel as if you were in a real African prairie. Apart from exquisite audio and visuals, players will enjoy the Hyperspins™ respin mechanic feature and up to a 64x multiplier. The game is set for release on January 21.

Last but not least is the Microgaming’s fourth exclusive release scheduled for January 28. Then, we will see The Incredible Balloon Machine™ slot take flight and soar to the skies to show and its innovative gaming features like WiNCREASE™, up to 10x multipliers, and more.
