Mega Moolah now available to play at 888 Casino
In big news for slots fans in the UK, one of the country's leading gambling sites, 888 Casino, has announced that it has signed an agreement with Microgaming to carry a wide range of slots and other casino games from the Isle of Man-based provider on its UK sites.
The deal could well be a match made in heaven, with 888 already having a strong selection of sites available in the UK including casino, poker and sports betting and the company has been performing well, posting revenue of $317.6 million in 2018 alone. Microgaming's recent moves have seen then sign partnerships with a number of companies, including several partnerships with development houses to produce exclusive slots for the company, and with casino providers to offer Microgaming products in various territories across the globe.
Who are 888?
888 are one of the biggest names in online gaming in the UK and they offer a wide range of different sites to customers. Their poker, casino and sports betting sites in particular are very popular with UK customers and they are known for slick graphics, good odds and giving the end user a very positive and enjoyable experience with their software.
Unlike many online bookmakers that were first high street bookmakers, 888 was developed solely for online gambling and it was one of the first along with the likes of bet365, to realise the full potential of the gaming industry. Since those early days, the company has developed to become one of the leading operators both in the UK and within other countries in Europe, notably in Scandinavia.
While 888 has already signed deals in the past with the likes of Net Entertainment and Evolution Gaming, this is the first deal that the company has struck with a different iGaming developer and in Microgaming they have landed the jackpot, partnering up with a company that is responsible for some of the most popular modern slots of our times including Thunderstruck II, Mega Moolah and Game of Thrones.
What are 888's plans?
888 has revealed that it plans to offer a wide range of Microgaming slots and other games across its UK platforms initially and that process has indeed already started. However, beyond that, it is also looking to offer Microgaming products in other markets where 888 has a strong presence including Denmark, Sweden and then potentially into the Mediterranean markets of Italy and Spain.
The profile of 888 fits nicely in with Microgaming which itself is looking to expand and broaden its horizons in the coming years. The company has already teamed up with betting provider Tipsport to offer its slots and casino games within the Czech Republic and the company has also agreed similar deals to bring Microgaming slots and games to players in Sweden, Denmark, Colombia and Bulgaria in recent months.
Microgaming Chief Executive John Coleman stated about the partnership:
"We are thrilled to welcome 888 Casino, a major player in the industry, to our ever-growing customer base."
What does this mean for UK players?
Essentially, this means that in addition to the games that were previously available at 888 Casino, all the customers of that site (plus the others that are customers at any of the sister 888 sites, such as 888 Sports or 888 Poker) can now access the full range of Microgaming slots and casino games online at 888.
For the first time, 888 customers can now play games such as Mega Moolah slot, Major Millions, Jurassic World, Agent Jane Blonde Returns and the new generation table games that Microgaming has relaunched such as European Roulette and European Blackjack at 888 Casino, without having to log out and load up another site to try any of their favourite Microgaming games.
With a huge customer base in the UK it is also good news for Microgaming, as it means that their products are now reaching an even wider base of players in the UK and with plans to expand into other countries already in place, the numbers of customers now having access to Microgaming slots will only increase in the coming years.
Where else can I play Microgaming slots in the UK?
In addition to playing Microgaming slots in the UK at 888 Casino, you can also play at a number of our recommended casinos on the Microgaming network.
Other companies that carry Microgaming games include bet365 and in total, there are over 60 different operators in the UK that carry Microgaming products, meaning that Microgaming's home nation is still the best supported in terms of the sheer number of companies carrying Microgaming software.
What will be the most popular Microgaming slots at 888 Casino?
If the customer base at 888 Casino is similar to the other customer bases across the UK and around the world, then they will certainly enjoy a wide range of Microgaming slots, with new releases coming every month or so too to freshen up the content and offer customers a wide range of new games to play.
Among the most popular new games will be the Reel Splitter slot, which was released just recently by Microgaming, while a brand new version of the casino game Roulette has also just been released, the first in a series of brand new and updated popular casino games.
Other slots that will prove popular no doubt will be the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot slot, which has the huge attraction of a massive progressive jackpot prize, which at the time of writing is around the 5 million mark. TV and Movie licensed slots also prove popular such as Highlander slot and the Phantom of the Opera. There's also a host of old classics available for 888 customers to play!
