This page will help you navigate through the diverse range of leading and up and coming software manufacturers, what games they design, and where you can access their innovative and immersive titles.
Online casinos with best game software
A host of reputable and respected digital gaming software providers exist within the online gambling industry, and it is their job to produce and maintain quality casino and other games which are marketed and offered at numerous different licensed online and mobile casino sites.
With brands competing against one another to better the graphical and technological advances of their games, we (the player) are provided with a competitive market of visually and audio-rich titles – so the more development companies fighting to release the most appealing and attractive game, the better it is for us as keen punters.
Leading iGaming software designers
With the online gambling industry constantly changing, it would be naive to suggest there will only ever be a few chief players in the software designing sect of the industry. As of 2015 though, Microgaming, Net Entertainment and BetSoft are probably leading the way in terms of game output and quality, but theses companies are being heeded by some very promising and rising newcomers to the scene, and it is with great anticipation that we wait to see what designs the new organisations have in store for us.
Microgaming – Having designed the first ever first fully functional gambling software way back in 1994, which led to the opening of the very first online casino, Microgaming has had its hands in the online gaming business from day one, and has built a brilliant reputation which will be very hard to beat.
Microgaming has secured partnerships with some major entertainment companies such as Playboy, TriStar Pictures, Universal Studios (also known as Universal Pictures), Warner Bros. Productions and HBO to produce instant classic pokies games like Game of Thrones, Jurassic Park, Terminator II, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises. Extending its brand name to high quality and numerous unique variations of other casino games such as blackjack, roulette, baccarat, poker, video poker, keno, bingo and more, Microgaming continues to push boundaries and look for new ways to enthral its customer base.
Microgaming’s partnership with Playboy has also seen it develop one of the hottest live dealer gaming studios online, with sexy and minimally-dressed real human croupiers in control of your games, and streamed directly to your screens.
Net Entertainment – A world leader supplier of digital casino game, NetEnt games feature some truly innovative features such as first person shooter mode gaming styles, along with some of the most advanced and immersive graphics, animations and sounds you will find on the Internet. Born in 1996 from one of Scandinavia’s leading land based casinos, Net Entertainment has an international industry presence and is one of the most active companies when it comes to releasing new games.
Net Entertainment has also established some long-lasting partnerships with some big name companies in the entertainment industry, having created recognised and interactive slot games such as Aliens (20th Century Fox), South Park and South Park: Reel Chaos (South Park Studios), Creatures From The Black Lagoon (Universal), Scarface (Universal) and The Invisible Man (Universal).
BetSoft – Considered the ‘innovator and leader in true cinematic 3D gaming’, BetSoft produces state-of-the-art three-dimensional pokies games which feature sublime graphics, compelling audio and sounds, gameplay that keep players coming back for more. BetSoft’s ‘Slots3′ brand incorporates all of the company’s ambitious and popular pokies games, including some of our favourites such as The True Sheriff, At The Copa, Safari Sam, Rook’s Revenge, Miles Bellhouse And His Curious Machine, At The Movies, Slots Angels, Lost, Mr. Vegas, Aztec Treasures, Rockstar, Heist, The Slotfather, Gladiator and The Glam Life.
But BetSoft doesn’t stop at slots. It has its very own line of video poker, roulette, blackjack, lottery and keno games, as well as what we deem to be its finest creation: the one of a kind, fully 3D Poker3 title (Texas hold’em played against the computer using advanced three dimensional graphics).
Playtech – Established in 1999, Playtech provides software for not just online casinos, but also online poker rooms, online bingo rooms, Internet scratch games, online sports bookies, mobile and live dealer gaming.
Playtech secured the rights to produce the highly addictive and engaging Sopranos slots game based on the HBO TV series, and has also developed other popular titles like Little Britain, Gladiator, Kong The Eigtht Wonder Of The World, Chippendales, Britain’s Got Talent, Around The World and Top Trumps: Football Legends.
NextGen and NYX Gaming – The NYX Gaming and NextGen Gaming Groups (NextGen is the Australian based games studio of NYX) make the cut as established software producing platforms, as together they possess over 150 unique and compelling slot titles, along with an additional catalogue of bingo, lottery, and tables games. The two gaming branches also partner with third party companies such as Aristocrat, Amaya, Elk, Thunderkick, iGaming2Go and 1×2 Gaming.
Several of the top-rated software developers can be followed on Twitter for regular updates on new game releases and promotions.
Up and coming respected software providers
Below are some relatively newer companies which are providing fresh reasons to browse through the games available within online and mobile casinos:
Rabcat – Headquartered in Vienna and established in 2001, Rabcat has fast become known as a highly respected and quality manufacturer of casino games for the Internet gambling industry. With software built for slots, video poker, table games as well as trademarked three dimensional titles, Rabcat has quickly expanded its catalogue of games to capture the attention of gamers all around the globe. Some of its most played slots titles include Forsaken Kingdom, Castle Builder, River Of Riches and Dragons Myth, all of which stray from the typical video slot game by incorporating new and impressive features like player activity and involvement and state of the art animations.
iSoftBet – A gaming company with an emphasis on combining simplicity with visually stunning, easy to understand and engaging games, iSoftBet has already developed some widely known titles based on iconic films and TV shows such as Platoon, Basic Instinct, Rambo, 24 (starring Jack Bauer), The Love Guru, Jackpot Rango and Beverly Hills 90210.
Mantle Games – It seems Mantle Games has just the one chief game available to play at G’Day Casino (links listed above and below), but it’s such an entertaining and addictive title we thought it best to include this designer company in our list. 3D Video Poker, otherwise known as TV Poker, is a three dimensional Texas Hold’em betting game which allows us (the player) to wager on four computer players facing off against one another. We can also bet on what the best final hand will be, and odds are automatically updated following every round (i.e. pre-flop, where all odds are equal, after the flop, then after the turn, and then all bets placed are settled following the river card). Play 3D Video Poker at G’day Casino and grab a free slab of beer on your first deposit.
Leander Games – A niche market with only a small category of slots, we can expect Leander Games to be releasing more and more casino titles to compliment its current collection, having already released some fresh titles not too long ago. Megadeth, Alibaba, Dragon Slot, Castaway and Zombie Rush are some notable pokies, while the studio also owns a roulette and poker game.
