The Pantheon Of Gambling Software Vendors
More recently, just 3-4 years ago, gambling solutions development market was represented by a dozen of companies. However, over the last couple of years, the names and manufacturers in charge of interesting products started popping up just like mushrooms after the rain. Their games are actively used by a growing number of online institutions, while their huge army of fans keeps on steadily growing. In this regard, we believe there is no point in overviewing various digital products, so let us share a breakdown of the providers in the conventional groups with very similar characteristics.
Playtech, Microgaming, Net Entertainment all the players mentioned are the undisputed leaders of the industry. These brands are well known even to an average rookie gamblers or aspiring online casino owner. These trustworthy brands are valued and respected. Game software delivered by these manufacturers boasts impeccable quality and reliability.
All of the above companies have distinctive features. For example, the total number of casinos exceeded a couple of thousands long time ago (Microgaming owns the leadership position here). The giant of the industry keeps on pleasing their fans with the new content and products on a monthly basis; with a total number of products exceeding several hundreds, the customer-oriented business is still focused on conquering new heights.
In addition, each company mentioned boasts a truly wide selection of games with progressive jackpots, phenomenal amounts of prizes. The fact should be underlined these jackpots are played quite regularly. All the companies are registered and have compliance licenses. They undergo regular audits, work actively in countries with legislation in the field of online gambling regulation and pay close attention to security aspects.
These companies are involved in software development business for over 10 years, but for various reasons they are moderately popular among gamblers. Some developers promote their product rather passively, some are too focused on individual markets, others concentrate their effort on particular regions only.
Bossmedia, Cryptologic, Novomatic, 888/DragonFish have few casino customers. Each of them partners with approximately 10 casinos (monosoft cooperation), Cryptologic has only two partners. However, these games developers can often be seen as part of the software on other platforms. Furthermore, Novomatic and DragonFish have started to nourish interest in various markets just 2-3 years ago, so if they manage to carry out a competent policy, they will inevitably strengthen their positions.
The main sphere of interest for RealTimeGaming (RTG), WGS Technology (HCV Technology), TopGame and BetonSoft are still the audiences from the U.S. and Western Europe. In fact, some companies do business in US half-legally, working remotely and bypassing local laws and prohibitions. The products by the companies mentioned primarily attract advanced gamblers. The companies bribe seasoned players with good math games; RTG and VegasTechnology have sections with regular tournaments.
As for the aspiring companies, e.g. Betsoft, Neogames, NextGen – their products can often be found on multi-soft online casino games in the neighborhood with the leaders, Playtech or Microgaming. Moreover, they are highly appreciated by gamblers for fresh implementation approaches and truly captivating gameplay.
