Despite being a huge fan of IGT slots, if you'd asked me I'd have said that Microgaming casinos were streets ahead of other online casinos using different software when it comes down to games choice, playability and even expected returns. The software has over 400 casino games of which well over half are slots alongside a big range of video pokers and plenty of traditional casino games in multiple formats. You really are spoilt for choice. When it comes to the slot games, the graphics and sounds have always lead the way, although I would say that some of the newer slots at Playtech casinos like Gladiator and the Fantastic 4 blow just about everything out the water for WOW factor.

Nonetheless, I still play at Microgaming casinos on a weekly basis - far more than I play at IGT casinos because the quality of game is so much better. As a result, there are a lot of online casinos using Microgaming software out there. On the whole, they are all safe and many have very good reputations. this is because Microgaming are alittle more fussy about who licences their games, they have tighter restrictions in place (for example, all Microgaming casinos must have a reserve fund put aside, a large amount that must remain untouched) plus, they are a lot more expensive! Consequently you tend to get serious companies using their software platform.

A number of the slot games you can find here at OnlineCasinos Vegas are part of Microgaming's suite and are available in the download and the Instant Play versions of each online casino I recommend below. This includes Cashapilla, Kathmandu, Thunderstruck and Tombraider of course. The download version of a Microgaming casino can take a while to install because there are so many games, but IMO is well worth it. If you are less patient, all of the slots mentioned - and more - are available in the Instant Play option also.

I've lost count of the number of Microgaming casinos I have played at over the last decade, but what I do know is that a handful are still on my hard drive and I still play them regularly. I have listed these below and explained what sets them apart from the others and why they were never uninstalled by my twitchy, trigger-happy index finger! Oh, and before I go on, once again I'm afraid that USA residents are not accepted at any Microgaming casino - not just those listed here. Check out the list of safe RTG casinos that do accept Americans as an alternative.


32Red Online Casino 32Red Casino

The benchmark. And I just don't mean for Microgaming casinos but for all online casinos! It wins award after award and alhough bonuses are fairly irregular, service, game fairness, promotions and the general treatment of a player as an individual rather than a number is what every online casino shold be looking to achieve, but few get close. If you are going to download one Microgaming casino, download ths one...it was the second ever casino I signed onto all those many years ago and it is the first one I visit when I want to play some Microgming slots. They also have daily Slots and BJ tournaments.

Ladbrokes Casino Ladbrokes Casino

I'm guessing that pretty much everyone will have heard of Ladbrokes who are famous for their sportsbook primarily. But they have also done an excellent job with their online casino too. They have all the Microgaming games of course, and a really nicely laid out Instant Play casino too. Very few bonuses to go around, but cashouts are ultra-fast: Neteller cashouts arrive the same day, sometimes within minutes, and bank transfers are within 48 hours (UK) on most occasions. You can also tarnsfer funds between sports, casino, poker and bingo at the click of a button and playin a variety of slot tournaments and Blackjack tournaments. A top notch casino but be aware you will feel like a number rather than a name, simply because they are so big. But everything runs like clockwork.

Roxy Palace Casino Roxy Palace Casino

Although a leser known name, Roxy are in here for one reason: their VIP scheme is the best I have come across to date. There bet limits aren't as high as at Laddies or 32Rd (above), but the more you play you start to appreciate the loyalty rewards. At one time, I was getting 3 bonuses a week, no deposit required! Of course all bonuses have wagering requirements, but with their tournaments and promotions I was always getting stuck in. It probably helps that over a 2 year period I came out up on the slots, but hey, I still rate them highly as an operation. Never got any hassle, payouts were prompt (although not as fast as those above) and service friendly.

Jackpot City Casino Jackpot City Casino

Jackpot City casino is part of the big Belle Rock Entertainment group who run several Microgaming casinos, all of which I have tried and all of which are relatively similar. I stuck with Jackpot City because I won $45,000 on a $10 bet on one of their slots (ISIS) and they were excellent. Cahsout arrived in 3 days, they even sent me a bluetooth speaker set as a congratulations present. Just one of those casinos that you get a warm, fuzzy feeling about but they have always had a very good reputation anyway. There are a few monthly bonuses floating around, some very good promotions and prizes and regular slots tournaments - several every day along with the standard Microgaming network-wide ones.
