Three New HTML5 Titles Hit Microgaming
September 11, 2013
In the mobile casino arms race, there is a big battle going on right now between two different platforms. On one side is Macromedia Flash, the platform that has been used for a very long time for a wide range of uses. On the other side is HTML5, a relative newcomer that has the ability to be faster and more efficient than Macromedia Flash for online gambling purposes. Recently, Microgaming has been adding a lot more HTML5-based games as a part of their focus on the future of mobile casino play. They now have 37 total HTML5 titles after the addition of these three new games.
The first new title is Couch Potato. This is a classic slot that uses three reels. As you would expect from a classic slot, there is a large 15,000x top jackpot. Video slot fans will like this game, however, because it includes some modern features. Not only does it include a wild symbol, but there are also special multipliers available that will really help you add up the winnings.
Next up is 5 Reel Drive, a popular game that has been moved over to HTML5. This is a well-known video slot that uses a format with five reels and nine paylines. This game is perfect for mobile players because its limited number of paylines makes it easy to keep up with all of the action on the screen of your cell phone or other mobile device while retaining all of the awesome features of video slots that players love.
Finally, we have Pure Platinum. This is a five-reel video slot that has 40 paylines, and this game coming to the HTML5 platform is really exciting because it's one of the most feature-packed slots to make that transition. There are free spins available with multipliers on top of wilds and scatters. It's a full-fledged video slot that has excellent gameplay.
Microgaming has always been successful because they have focused on their growth in the future, and that's exactly what they're doing with the mobile games that are now available with HTML5. Microgaming Product Channels Head Neill Whyte said, "The number of devices available to consumers is continually growing, therefore it is important that our mobile product evolves with this in mind. This is why we have successfully embarked on a monthly roll-out of new HTML5 mobile games." This quote confirms their strategy, and it's a strategy that will be sure to pay off.
