The Microgaming Software Structure

Microgaming is the pioneer in online casino software. Right from the time it launched Gaming Club online casino it has taken a lead role in shaping the online casino software industry. Today the industry is at a point where sweeping changes are being made, both in response to regulatory requirements and in the way online casinos are structuring their games. The new Microgaming web site indicates that it has restructured in response to these requirements and is ready to take the next leap. Microgaming software is available in 24 languages, with multi-currency options. Players have the ability to switch to an alternative language.

The "Our Technology" page of the web site indicates how the different elements of the software are linked. There are three elements. The first is the Viper software. This is the core software for Microgaming online casinos. It offers the largest portfolio of download games. The obvious flip side to this is a large hard drive memory requirement. The other drawback of the Viper software is that it is compatible with only Windows operating system.

The second element of the software structure is the Flash casino. This is compatible with both Windows and Mac operating systems and is thus able to cater to a much larger number of online casino players. The Microgaming Flash casino can also be used to target players with machines specifications at the lower end with lower memory, slower processors and lower bandwidth conditions. One reason is that the Flash casino is built using the latest technology. The second reason is that it offers a smaller selection of games but covers the blockbuster titles. Most dedicated Microgaming online casinos offer both the download Viper software and the no download Flash casino. Both these systems come with complete casino management tools and systems.

One of the changes in the online casino industry is the emergence of operators offering games from a number of software providers. This increases the competitive advantage of the operator many times over. Microgaming has realized that unless it addresses this issue its online casinos will be at a disadvantage and in the long run this may even lead to loss of business volumes. Therefore Microgaming has developed an Extended Third Party Interface (ETI) that allows game content developed for other software providers to be integrated with the Microgaming account system. Microgaming online casinos have just started receiving the best games from other software developers through ETI.

Simultaneously Microgaming has seen an opportunity in offering its premium games to online casino operators on other software platforms. For that it had developed the QuickFire platform many months ago. QuickFire has succeeded in reaching out the many leading online casino operators. Originally it offered a selection of games from Microgaming Flash casino to its clients. But now it has added content from ETI as well.

Another facet of its operations that Microgaming has chosen to highlight at its new web site is its ability to offer flexible and strategic partnerships in newly regulated markets. Because Microgaming has been in the first wave of entrants into newly regulated markets, it has the experience to develop fully compliant solutions that leverage its reputation for quality.
