Microgaming Online Instant Play Casino Games Menu

August 27, 2016


Today, instant play casino platforms are dominant for desktop wagering. The best Australian online casinos display all the games offered on the web site. You locate the game you want to play and click on it. As the game loads you will be asked to log in and once you do that you are ready to play. Most Microgaming online casinos, like Royal Vegas and Platinum Play, have a similar games menu layout and this article will help you to navigate through that.

The different games categories are shown as tabs or listed in a frame. The home page usually displays the Featured Games, which are the games that the online casino sees as the more popular ones at that time. There is usually a provision to create a list of your favourite games.

The category with the largest games is Pokies. This has three categories: Arcade Pokies, Reel Pokies and Video Pokies. Arcade Pokies are online casino games based on video games found in arcade parlours. Microgaming offers two titles in this category: Max Damage and Germinator. Reel Pokies are the classic three reels pokies and Video Pokies are the five reels pokies. If you are familiar with the Microgaming download casino platform, you will realise that there are sub classifications in the Reel Pokies and Video Pokies, which have not been incorporated in the instant play platform. All pokies are also displayed together under the main Pokies listing.

The Table Games category includes Blackjack, Roulette, Poker, Baccarat and Others. Again sub classifications have been left out. For example, single hand and multi-hand online blackjack variants are not separated. The Poker Category lists online casino games that are based on poker hand rankings like 3 Card Poker, Hold’em Poker and Poker Pursuit. The Others category has Craps and Red Dog. The instant play platform also gives Australian players access to live dealer games. These are not listed separately, but included in the main Table Games list.

There are no categories within Video Poker. The single hand and multi-hand Power Poker games are in one listing. The Power Poker hands are all played with four hands. The progressive jackpot games, whether pokies, video poker or casino poker, are listed under Progressive. There is a Scratch Cards category and a Casual Games category, which includes keno.

The best part of the Microgaming instant play casino games menu is the dynamic search engine. You need not know the exact name of the game you want to ply. As you enter the letters, the matching games will be displayed on the screen. As more letters are entered, games that no longer match are removed. You can zero in on your game much before entering the complete name.
