When considering which casino you should frequent, one of the top things to factor into the equation is who provides their games. Finding the best casino software is important, and we've outlined what some of the industry's biggest hitters provide to UK casinos.
This Swedish studio has a fondness for adventure, with a series of slots starring the tomb-raiding Egyptologist Rich Wilde. Book of Dead has 5 reels and 10 paylines, and sees the aforementioned archaeologist come face-to-face with the gods Osiris and Anubis. And if the explorer's adventures whet your appetite, you can go on to try other games with Rich Wilde in the leading role.
One of the firm's more recent games is Rainforest Magic, a 5 reel and 25 payline video slots game. Exotic animals and vibrant scenery bring the rainforest to life, and the Mystery Symbols are always something good to help increase your chances of winning.
Casino Software from NetEnt
NetEnt is a big hitter in the casino industry, ranking alongside Microgaming (see below). It's also created one of the best slots games for newcomers to online gambling: Starburst. The game has 5 reels and 10 paylines, but the reason it's ideal for beginners is that it's relatively straightforward and avoids getting bogged down in the complexity that bedevils/enhances (as you like) some other games. And the potential prizes are still pretty good.
If RTP (return to player) is your main concern then NetEnt has a great game in Blood Suckers. This vampiric slots game has an RTP of 98% and low volatility, which also makes it ideal if you need to hit a bonus wagering requirement but want to keep hold of your profits. With 5 reels and 25 lines, there are also wilds and free spins and, as we said, a stellar RTP.
Casino Software from Microgaming
Undoubtedly one of the top providers, Microgaming's slots games are extremely popular both at single supplier and multi-developer sites. They've been creating games for a long time, giving them a broad product range, and have a number of fan favourites. Two of the biggest would be Mega Moolah and Thunderstruck II. Mega Moolah features a progressive jackpot, meaning it goes up every time someone spins but doesn't win, and this has yielded numerous multi-million pound jackpots over the years. If you're in the United Kingdom but prefer slots
to the lottery, then this could be the game for you.
Thunderstruck II is a 243 ways to win slot meaning, as you may have surmised, there are far more opportunities to win on a single spin. This means the game has a non-progressive but nevertheless hefty jackpot.
These are just a few of the best casino software developers contributing games to sites in the United Kingdom and overseas, but there are plenty more. When choosing a casino, always check it has the games you're after, and if the site has games from multiple developers then all the better.
