2013 has been a big year for Microgaming, particularly in the mobile space. They declared early on that mobile was at the centre of their efforts and would continue to be for the foreseeable future and if you’ve been keeping up with all of the latest news here at MobileCasino.net, then we’re sure that you’ll agree with us that they have certainly lived up to expectations. The year has seen at least one new mobile gaming release every single month and now, with the addition of Reel Thunder to their mobile platform, the number of games has reached the magic forty.
Reel Thunder itself is by no means the newest game on the block, but a significant number of the games to hit mobile screens over the last year have been conversions of popular online titles and the combination of hogs and bikers has always proven to be a big hit with players. The nine line betting layout is perfect for mobile screens and the inclusion of scatters and wilds without the complication of free spins or a bonus round have ensured that the action comes thick and fast. The 10,000 coin top prize is certainly nothing to sniff at either!
Neil Whyte, Head of Product Channels at Microgaming, summed up the company’s mobile successes for the year, commenting: “We are very proud of our mobile achievements in 2013; we’ve released 21 HTML5 games, all of which are designed meticulously to provide the best possible mobile experience. We have spent years perfecting the art of creating graphically appealing, immersive and compelling games for PC, so why would we give the mobile player a different experience? Our commitment to our mobile product will continue in 2014 with a more aggressive rollout of games, as well as the release of some exciting features designed to maximise the player experience.”
The last part is particularly noteworthy for us as we have certainly enjoyed commenting on the latest releases from the company and one a month was already good going. Players can clearly expect even more from Microgaming next year and you can certainly rest assured that we will always be on hand to bring you the biggest and most important news as it happens.
Another notable recent development is that Microgaming has perfected the technology that allows them to release games not only through a mobile web interface but also their mobile download platform at the same time. This means that branded casino apps will have all of the latest titles as soon as they hit the casinos themselves, giving players the kind of choice that simply cannot be beaten. Such gaming opportunities have already started, with the likes of Big Top, Halloweenies and Pure Platinum all successfully launching across all of the company’s mobile products at the same time.
The developer is of course also helped by the fact that it is partnered with some of the biggest name casinos around. If you want to get in on all of this great mobile gaming action right now, not to mention being fully prepared for a huge number of new releases next year, then we’d certainly encourage you to check out our coverage of All Slots Mobile and Royal Vegas Mobile, two of the biggest and best mobile casinos around and home to all forty of the existing HTML5 casino slots.
