Microgaming is often the preferred choice of online gaming software provider for players residing outside the United States. Two years ago Microgaming had withdrawn from the American market. Microgaming offers the maximum number of online casino games and adds more new games every year than any other software provider. Also there are more online casinos powered by Microgaming than by any other software provider. This however leads to the problem of plenty. How does one choose from the several Microgaming online casinos?
One of the most important criteria is language. There are many online gamblers whose native language is not English. Even if they would understand English they would definitely feel more comfortable wagering at an online casino that has the software in their own language. Many Microgaming online casinos are multilingual and some cover most European languages. For example, Blackjack Ballroom online casino offers software in French, German, Danish, Spanish and Italian. Players should try and locate a Microgaming online in their language and wager there, other things being equal.
The second critical issue is currency. Almost all Microgaming online casinos offer wagering in Euros, British Pounds and American Dollars. Players from the United Kingdom and those from countries with Euro as the currency can easily wager in their own currencies. But under normal circumstances other players will have to wager in American Dollars. This leads to currency exchange and the attendant losses due to bank commissions and rate differences. There are some Microgaming online casinos that offer wagering in Scandinavian, South African, Canadian and Australian currencies. Spin Palace online casino offers wagering in Canadian Dollars. Players should try to select a Microgaming online casino that allows wagering in their currency, but not at the expense of the required due diligence.
One of the attractions of Microgaming online casinos is the offer of new games every month. Usually all the casinos release the new games simultaneously towards the end of the first week of the month. However there could be some Microgaming online casinos where the release of the games is delayed. Signing up as real money players at such online casinos is not worthwhile. Whether or not a particular Microgaming online casino releases new games on time or not can be ascertained by posting at online casino forums or in the worst case by signing up with the online casino as a free money player.
Though Microgaming is an excellent software provider, due diligence of the operator needs to be done. The online casino player obviously is not equipped to carry out the due diligence on his own and has to depend on the evaluation of a third party. eCOGRA has an excellent reputation for auditing the operations of online casinos. Though Microgaming was one of the founders of eCOGRA, eCOGRA's independence and integrity is beyond question. A large number of Microgaming online casinos carry the Safe & Fair seal and it does not make sense to wager at a Microgaming online casino that is not approved by eCOGRA.
Microgaming online casinos can really be differentiated on the basis of the bonus and promotions they offer. How much weight one would like to give to promotions and how much to core wagering is a personal choice. But those players who look for large bonuses or mega promotions should select Microgaming online casinos that offer these benefits. The online casinos of the Fortune Lounge group would fall in this category.
