Microgaming was founded back in 1994 and has always been at the forefront of online casino gaming. This company did for instance start launching casino games for mobile play back in the early 2000’s when a smart phone still was a rare thing to see in the hands of an ordinary consumer. Back then, Microgaming’s mobile games used “primitive” technology like WAP.
Examples of well-known Microgaming slots are Thunderstruck II, Avalon II, The Dark Knight, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Jurassic Park, Immortal Romance, and Game of Thrones.
Microgaming’s portfolio includes well over 600 titles and features slots, table games, video poker, scratch cards, race games, keno games, and more.

Yggdrasil Gaming is a newcomer in business. Launched in 2013, this Swedish software developer initially eschewed the crowded slots niche in favor of lottery games and scratch cards – two categories that aren’t getting much love from big developers like NetEnt and Microgaming. With Yggdrasil, we got a much needed revamp of dusty old games. Yggdrasil did for instance take the single-player keno game and launched four advanced 3D versions of it: Medusa Eyes of Fire, Beaming Canines, Precious Anuran, and Siamese Serpents. All four of them are loaded with special features and interesting details.
Since then, Yggdrasil Gaming has also ventured into the field of slots, with titles such as Jokerizer, Dark Joker Rizes, Fruitoids, Pyrons, Magic Mushrooms, Robotnik, and Winterberries.
Yggdrasil has no downloadable casino client. All games are for browser play. Most games can be played on mobile devices (both Android, Windows and iOS) since they are HTML5 games.
Thunderkick is a small Swedish game developer with a slots-focus. Examples of slots from Thunderkick are Esqueleto Explosivo, Toki Time, Barber Shop, Turning Totems, 1429 Uncharted Seas, Magicious, and Børk the Berzerker.
All games are available for browser play. There is no downloadable client.
Thunderkick takes pride in the creation of innovative slot games that differs from the crowd. This is for instance visible when it comes to paylines – when was the last time you found an 11 payline or 17 payline game that didn’t come from Thunderkick? Thunderkick is also fond of trying out alternatives to the standard spinning reels. There is for instance the slot Esqueleto Explosivo, where the reels have been replaced with five mariachi playing skeletons and falling craniums.

Play ‘n GO makes most of their games in HTML5. This means that they work on traditional computers as well as on smart phones and tablets.
