Microgaming Software Continues to Improve the World of Online Gambling
If there’s one thing you need to know about Microgaming Software Systems, Ltd. and its long list of available software programs it’s the fact that this is a highly respected and experienced business that you can trust. The company has been around since 1994 and is one of the largest suppliers of casino systems to online casinos. In the world of online gambling the most important aspect of any company is its honesty and reliability and Microgaming receives top marks in both categories from everyone familiar with the industry.
Having confirmed that you will be dealing with a trusted supplier, it’s now time to consider the depth, excitement and potential payouts of the company’s offerings. Since the odds of winning at a particular game are extremely important to all gamblers, Microgaming provides regular payout reports on its sites mpo tiktok slot . These reports are developed independently by PriceWaterhouseCoopers, the world’s largest accounting and business consulting firm. It is this openness and transparency on the part of Microgaming that has given industry leaders throughout the world the confidence to offer the firm’s games throughout their online casinos.
In general, Microgaming software is well known for providing large jackpot prizes, and a lot of them. Individual jackpots can reach more than $1 million, and total payouts are said to have topped the $200 million mark. And since every gambler loves to get a free bonus for playing, most casinos using the Microgaming software are known for the generous bonuses offered to first time players. As is common throughout the industry, most of these bonuses do require certain minimum wagering amounts.
A clear picture of the company’s commitment to providing enviable payouts to its players can be seen in the February 2009 addition of Ladbrokes Poker to the Microgaming software community. Not only will this addition expand the number and quality of games available at Ladbrokes but the two companies have joined together to offer a promotion that will pay out $1 million every month to the 3,000 leading players at the site.
Next to generous payouts, players are always interested in seeing new exciting games with improved features. One of the most heartening aspects of Microgaming is its commitment to constantly improve and expand the depth of its programming. Not only does the company offer more games than any other provider, with as many as 400 different game titles available in a typical Microgaming casino, it also relentlessly offers up new games on a regular basis.
To this end, Microgaming has been introducing around four unique and innovative new games each month. One of the most exciting elements of the company’s games is a nifty item known as the Viper, an interface that allows players to set the skill level of the games they play so that they are always competitive.
Binary Options are the hottest new game in online trading. No experience necessary, step right up and place your wager! A quick Google search reveals thousands of ‘brokers’ offering hundreds of dollars in sign up bonuses and promises of 70%-85% returns in minutes! If this sounds familiar, you may be remembering the explosion of offshore online casinos that sprung up all over the net a few years back before the federal government began enforcing the UIGEA (Unlawful Internet Gaming Enforcement Act) in 2010.
Being an avid sports bettor and market enthusiast, I couldn’t ignore the correlation that binary options has with gambling. In this form of trading you are given two options to choose from: up or down. Is the particular security, currency, or commodity going to move up or down in the respective time period that you have chosen. Kind of like: are the Patriots going to win by 3 or not? Is the score going to be higher or lower than 43? You can see where this is going right?
Most legitimate brokers I have spoken with consider binary options to be a straight gamble, but still a legitimate trading vehicle. The problem with binary options that are being offered online right now isn’t with the system itself, it is with the ‘brokers’ that are offering it. As one trader put it: “they are straight snakes. Who offers 100% match bonuses with a trading account?” In full disclosure, legitimate brokerage houses do offer bonuses to new customers of up to $2500 (for a million dollar deposit), and most binary options sites have a limit as to the bonuses, but some do not. So how do these options houses stay in business?
To answer that question, we need only look at their ads and do some real math. These sites offer 70%-85% and sometimes higher returns on your investments, so you automatically assume that for every dollar you invest, you will get $1.85 in return. And this is true, if you win every option that you place. That would be perfect if these sites were in Fantasy Land, but we all know that you are not going to win every time. The small print tells you that you will lose 100% of your investment when that option doesn’t come in. In essence you are risking $1 for $0.85 on what is essentially a 50/50 proposition. Those my friends are terrible odds.
