Microgaming is opening its own live casino!



The company will launch its own live casino in 2022. Following Evolution Gaming’s acquisition of NetEnt, the number of live providers has been significantly reduced. Microgaming decides to jump in this breach and develop its own live casino.

From the first quarter of 2022, live games are expected to go live. From this moment you will see them in all online casinos where Microgaming is present. These are quite a few online casinos where you will soon find live games.

Microgaming has taken over former NetEnt staff

At the end of December, it was announced that Evolution Gaming was definitely taking over NetEnt. With this step, all NetEnt live casino games were immediately closed. NetEnt employees have been kicked out because of this.

Microgaming has decided to lend a hand and hire these people. But now there appears to be an underlying plan. The company wants to start its own live casino. With the folks at NetEnt, they immediately gain a lot of knowledge about live games.

Cooperation with On Air Entertainment

Acquiring former NetEnt employees is just the first step. In January, it was already known that Microgaming had entered into a partnership with One Air Entertainment. They specialize in the technology involved in a live casino.

Because Microgaming now has enough knowledge in-house, they can start setting up their live games. On Air Entertainment is headquartered in Malta and has several live casino studios. The studios are located in Latvia and Estonia.

It appears that from Latvia and Estonia, On Air Entertainment’s live casino games will be released soon. Over the coming year, Microgaming will be working hard behind the scenes to develop its own live casino games.

Microgaming sees great potential in live casino

It’s no surprise that Microgaming is entering the live casino space. For years the company has been one of the market leaders in the world of online casinos. But a nice selection with table games or live casino games was missing so far.

Microgaming also states that there is a lot of potential in the live casino. More and more players are consciously choosing to play live. With On Air Entertainment, they hope to build a good portfolio.

Microgaming can’t wait to see what the future holds. They really hope to compete with Evolution Gaming. This will of course be a challenge as the company has been stabilizing the market for years. Especially after the acquisition of NetEnt in 2020.

Microgaming is currently mainly known for its jackpot games.

If Microgaming is known for anything, it is of course the jackpot games. Mega Moolah and the Wowpot jackpot all come from this company. The portfolio consists of over 800 different games in total.

By the way, Microgaming doesn’t make most of the games itself. They are mainly a kind of publisher who assigns the games to the different online casinos. For example, the company has a partnership with Neon Valley Studios and Gambburger. These small studios have a platform to launch their games thanks to Microgaming.
