Find a list of casino software from all the software makers Here. You know how every now and then there’s that one boy who gets to be teacher’s pet? All the others may hate him for his blatant swagger and an undisguised sense of superiority, but he’s the one that gets all the top grades. And deep down you know there’s likely a reason the teacher likes him so much: hard work, dedication, and innate intelligence. No-one ever voices that, even though it’s true.
It’s exactly the same with casino software makers. Everyone likes you-know-who the most. We think Playtech is also way out there, especially after the Marvel deal. However, the deeper you dive into the wild and wonderful world of online gaming, the more knowledge and experience you gather about different companies – and then people start picking personal favorites.
Maybe one company provides something no-one else does. Maybe it doesn’t do something that everyone’s doing (thank God!). Either way, everyone has a favorite, at least for the time being, which is why we sort our games according to their casino software makers below so you can stay on the right track (sorted by level of deliciousness).
Top Casino Software Companies
Let’s pick a few software makers you may or may not know, and go through them in detail (those are teacher’s pets of ours). If you’re new, we can help you make this unique world yours, and, if not, you may still discover something new and exciting here that you haven’t seen.
Obviously, Microgaming is our first choice. Known for its mesmerizing graphics, fantastic crispy sound, and immense levels of work put into slots, this is one of the awesomest brands around (most say most awesome). In simpler terms, you only have to go to the website and take a look at the graphics to get completely submerged into a breathtaking Avatar-style world of fluorescent lights, wild creatures, and hopping gold coins. Their motto, if nothing else convinced you, is the last drop.
Microgaming is a laboratory based on the Isle of Man, contained within a private territory, and no-one knows what goes on in there. They have officially created the first online casino in 1994, and the rest of the industry followed suit. It is famous for a bunch of things, like having its own video poker network, a dazzling array of games, Quickfire, Oculus Rift, and a bunch of other exciting and sometimes amazing things.
We think it would also be great investment material because you can be sure that companies like that, as well as Google and Microsoft, are extremely unlikely to suffer from share price drops. Overall, as you can probably tell already, we think Microgaming is brilliant in all respects.
Playtech probably comes in second in terms of shock and awe. But a very close second. Apparently, Playtech is an heir to the Microgaming’s throne, but we are very doubtful about that. Long live the king! Playtech is famous most of all for making a deal with Marvel so it can create Marvel-themed slots, which have been quite popular of late.
It’s been around for some time, since just a little before the start of the new century, which is a good sign, because we always say that, licenses and scalability aside, reputation is the top parameter by which you are to measure a company’s success. We’re not talking PR here, but rather a company’s ability to stay on the market for this long, all the while providing great content. That is also why we are more fond of Microgaming, who are Payetch’s bigger and older brother (5 years older).
Playtech also has HQ in the Isle of Man (we think we see a copycat!), with a revenue of about 700 000 000 Euros, which pretty much says it has enough capital to pay out your winnings. With over 5 000 employees, it is one of the most influential companies on the market, which is why we think it is a great choice for arcade games, live dealer games, sports betting, and obviously online casinos.
You’ll be also glad to know this is a casino software developer that was founded by those slow-speaking, slow-moving Estonian guys, which means meticulous attention to details and general niceness. Playtech develops, licenses, and regulates games all over the world, and is affiliated with some of the most elite companies ever. We say!
Whoever said you can’t spit these days without hitting a NetENt game was right. NetEnt is one of the most popular companies in the world in terms of ratings and fame. There is a good reason why. NetEnt (Net Entertainment, by the way) is known for technologically advanced, original slots with pretty generous bonus features.
While it is true that some slots are better than others, and you may find a few angry reviews on the Net complaining about NetENt’s lack of attention or that or another slot, in general it provides interesting slots, reasonably high payouts, and decenter service. This stoic Bronze Medal holder (in our estimation) is one of the most eagerly sought after software providers in the world.
While we are on the subject of quality, we would also like to remind you about one more casino software. NextGen is still out there setting the bar pretty high for the average casino software provider. NextGen is known for their intricate understanding of the client, reliability, and a long uptime (since 1999).
You may remember NYX and NextGen merging in 2011. They are also one of the most establishes players on the casino software market, and the go-to guys for assured, guaranteed no-hassle fun.
