Although it was a while ago, we didn’t get a chance to report on Microgaming’s latest online slot machine, which was a Christmas themed slot called Secret Santa. This new slot was launched towards the beginning of the month, on December 6th, and it is now widely available.

“Secret Santa is the perfect game for the festive season; it has a traditional theme impeccably illustrated through hand-painted drawings and a fitting soundtrack,” said the head of Casino at Microgaming, Mike Hebden.

He finished by saying, “This nostalgic design has been coupled with a powerful maths engine which has been created to deliver fast-paced gameplay and frequent rewards to players. Through Secret Santa we’ve delivered the ideal gift to our operators and their players.”

On December 11th, Microgaming unveiled its latest mobile casino game, a mobile slot machine called Reel Thunder. This latest edition to Microgaming’s HTML5 portfolio of games became the company’s 40th mobile casino game. In 2013 alone, Microgaming has managed to unveil a total of 21 new mobile casino games.

On December 12th, a stylish new online casino launched called Thrills.com and it is using Microgaming’s Quickfire software. This new online casino is owned by a company called the Betit Group and in addition to Quickfire software, it will also be using games supplied by other top software providers such as NetEntertainment (NetEnt), Play ’n Go and SkillOnNet.

“As a start-up company it was essential for us to partner with the best and most experienced of game providers; Quickfire certainly ticked all of the boxes in terms of what we required. From signing to integration, testing and then go-live, Quickfire hasn’t let us down; our decision to work with Quickfire, powered by Microgaming, was a good one,” said the COO of Betit, Henric Anderson.

Microgaming fans were also pleased to learn on December 13th that the company has spent the last two years working hard on a new online slot called Avalon ll: Quest for the Grail, although it will no doubt end up simply being called Avalon 2 by many players. This new online slot will make an appearance at ICE Totally Gaming 2014 in London.

Avalon 2: Quest for the Grail looks like it will be a sure hit with players and it looks far more advanced than the prequel. You can even view a video of this slot in the making right here.

The other story that we couldn’t forget to mention was about the lucky female gamer called Rachael who was playing at Spin Palace Mobile Casino when she landed the Progressive Jackpot which was worth just over €1.08 million on a slot called Mega Moolah.

“Two mega mobile jackpot wins on our HTML5 client in just four months truly indicates the growth of mobile gaming. So far this year, Mega Moolah has paid out over €171 million on mobile devices; that’s an astonishing amount! No doubt this number will increase year-on-year as more and more players look to play their favourite games on their mobile and tablet devices,” said the Head of Product Channels at Microgaming, Neill Whyte.
