We don’t bring you too much news that often from our online casino sites as things tend to tick along relatively sedately on these sites, but last week saw some huge news for BGO Casino customers that just begs to be known far and wide.
The great news for them is that BGO Casino have agreed a deal with one of the biggest names in online slot gaming, the Isle of Man-based Microgaming, to offer a massive selection of Microgaming slots and casino games at BGO Casino and other affiliated casinos owned by the BGO group, with almost immediate effect.
With a huge back catalogue and being the company that were amongst the first to develop an online casino back in the early 1990s, Microgaming have become one of the biggest names in online casino software development over the years. They have been responsible for some of the biggest and most popularly played slot games in the history of the Internet and their deal with BGO is a real coup for both, allowing BGO to offer a wide selection of top quality games and slots, while Microgaming can now allow BGO customers to enjoy their extensive range of games.

Let’s now learn a little more about Microgaming software and the types of games you can expect to play once you are a member at BGO Casino.
Who are Microgaming?
Microgaming were one of the pioneers of online casino gaming when the Internet first began to gain in popularity in the 1990s. It was responsible for the first true online casino software in 1994 and also the first ever mobile casino software which came ten years later in 2004.
The company is responsible for more than just games by also offering Live Casino, poker, bingo and sports betting services online as well as being present in a number of land-based casinos too.
The company also boasts that its progressive jackpot network of games is the largest in the world and across the 16 different progressive jackpot games available, it has paid out over a billion in Euros to players all over the world.
Currently, the Guinness Book of World Record recognises that the largest ever online progressive jackpot payout came from a Microgaming slot called Mega Moolah, which saw one player based in the UK land a jackpot prize of over £13.2 million back in October 2015. Since then, Mega Moolah has also seen winners of over €18.9 million and a Canadian Dollar jackpot prize of over CA$20 million paid out at the beginning of 2019.
After many years of producing its own slot and casino games in-house, Microgaming has altered strategy in the past two years to partner up with a number of different development studios, who will now produce a range of different slots and games exclusively for Microgaming, who will then distribute them into a growing number of casino outlets, similar to the way the company has agreed a deal with BGO to carry its games.
This change in strategy has diversified the type and style of games released by the company within the past 12 months in particular and has ushered in an exciting new era for fans of the company and the slot games it produces.
So with Microgaming products now available at BGO, what are some of the games available there that you should definitely put on your play list?
What are the best Microgaming games available at BGO?
- Thunderstruck II
The original Thunderstruck slot is a very good game and it too is available at BGO Casino right now, but there is no doubting that the sequel to that original, Thunderstruck II is without doubt one of the best games Microgaming have ever released. Still hugely popular with players to this very day, the slot boasts a huge jackpot prize and a number of outstanding bonus features including the Great Hall of Spins bonus round, where you can play through a number of different bonuses, unlocking each one. This is an incredible slot and one that showcases just what Microgaming are capable of.
- Immortal Romance
If you like the Thunderstruck II slot then you will also very much love the Immortal Romance slot, and that is because this Vampire love-story themed slot is based essentially on the same game engine as the Thunderstruck II slot, only this game boasts an even larger jackpot prize of over 4 million coins. Add to that great bonus features, engaging game play and an unusual theme and it is easy to see why this game is another of Microgaming’s true classics.
One of the first slots to be developed for Microgaming by a partner studio, Fortunium was one of the big releases that the company made in 2018 and its steampunk inspired look and style, together with engaging and unusual game play and features, made it a huge success story. This is an unusual slot which has a great deal of depth and which offers excellent gameplay to players of all sizes of bankrolls.
Are Microgaming games available at BGO Casino yet?
The great news is that once the deal between BGO and Microgaming had been announced at the end of June 2019, a large number of Microgaming slots and casino games were immediately available to play both in the online and mobile versions of BGO Casino.
So yes, you can play a number of top Microgaming games, including many of the brand new releases and historic classics from the company, right now at BGO Casino.
