Microgaming Adds Three More HTML5 Mobile Games

Forecasts estimate that the gaming industry will generate more than $85 billion by 2016, and mobile gaming will account for close to $9 billion, or 9.4 percent, of that market. A recent report from Juniper Research (NewsAlert) says smart phone and tablets will be the preferred hardware for gamers, with 64.1 billion downloads of game apps for these devices in 2017, which is more than 43 billion greater than the 2012 total of 21 billion downloads. The numbers are full of potential, and more companies are introducing games for mobile platforms to capture a share of the market and make their brand more recognizable. Microgaming, a software provider to the online gambling industry, is adding three new HTML5 mobile games to its line of more than 600 unique game titles this month.

Microgaming is increasingly using the HTML5 platform for its mobile games because it delivers the look and feel of native applications. As HTML5 becomes the new Web standard, more software developers will be creating applications designed to take advantage of this platform.

The new releases are casino based games designed to take advantage of the increasing capability of mobile devices:

  • Break da Bank –a three reel, five pay-line slot which has a wild and multiplier symbol to boost player winnings. It also has a first for a HTML5 game, a new coin fountain animation on big wins.
  • Big Top –a circus themed a five reel, nine pay-line video slot that includes wilds and scatters. It provides the gamer with rich graphics filling the slots with many different bright and exciting images.
  • Lion’s Pride – a five reel, 100 pay-line video slot with an African safari theme. The game offers up to 25 free spins and multiple winning opportunities with wilds, scatters and a free spins.

"We are releasing new mobile games on a monthly basis; this highlights our commitment to produce the most comprehensive mobile gaming solution for our operators. We will continue to develop our suite of HTML5 games to ensure we retain our competitive edge in the marketplace," said Neill Whyte, head of Product Channels at Microgaming,
