Nowadays the choice is overwhelming where to play online, there are literally thousands of different casinos to play at, each casino offering software from different vendors such as Microgaming and Playtech.
So what do each software vendor offer which others may not and how do you choose between them. To start off with or give you a brief history of how these vendors came about.
Microgaming is the oldest casino vendor out there it was first established around 20 years ago and has since grown to power some of the biggest casinos in the world including Ladbrokes and 32 red. Playtech is the other big player, they power almost every single UK casino and sports book including William Hill, Ladbrokes, betfred, Bet365 and Coral.
Playtech also part of William Hill’s online operation. They have a huge range of slot games as well as blackjack, roulette and video poker, they power some of the most recognisable casino games out there. Some Playtech games include ‘great blue’ and ‘luck of the Irish’.
NetEnt are a relatively new company from Sweden. But they offer some of the most popular casino games around. These games rely heavily on really impressive graphics and innovative gameplay. If you read reviews of NetEnt online you will see lots of good reviews and impressed players. One of the most popular NetEnt games is ‘dead or alive’ a superhigh variance slot game which has been known to pay up between 10 and 15,000 times your bet.with a max bet of €90 per spin this slot is responsible some of the biggest payouts around. NetEnt is available to play at bet365 and Ladbrokes. NetEnt also offer many other casino games including blackjack, roulette and video poker. Personally, I prefer slot games over anything else as the table games don’t offer anything that Microgaming or Playtech don’t offer.
Some casinos such as Mr Green offer over 10 different casino game vendor’s including NetEnt, Playtech and Microgaming. In fact they offer over 2000 different casino games with everything from your basic 3 armed bandits to complex 243 line 3-D graphics slots
