Microgaming has announced that they will close the bingo network they are currently running. This news is not a surprise as the famous casino software maker seeks to concentrate on casino games instead.
When Will Microgaming Bingo Close
As of now, there is no definitive date for the shutdown. However, Microgaming is playing their cards close to their chest and have not made this knowledge public. They are the smallest UK Bingo network with a handful of bingo sites running.
Current bingo sites include Butlers Bingo, 32Red Bingo and Danske Spil. Let’s make no mistake as to the cause of the shutdown. There were no dedicated bingo sites outside of the Butlers Bingo group. Instead, it was a case of Casino operators adding the bingo on as an add on.
The UK, the most extensive bingo market globally, is highly competitive, with numerous bingo rooms vying for players’ attention. Unfortunately, Microgaming has not sustained its player database despite having some fantastic games.
Some bingo variation games, including Immortal Romance Bingo, are fantastic experiences. It’s a pity that this will now fall by the wayside.
Microgaming got into the world of bingo by buying bingo software. It is feasible that this software might be resold to someone else and get relabelled.
An example of this was the sale of Cozy Games and its bingo software to GVC. The current software is now named Electracade and has some of the biggest names in bingo on the platform.
TIt is a sad day for bingo players as it does mean less choice. However, Microgaming Bingo sites have delivered some fantastic wins for bingo players in the past. It includes a £5.5 Million Jackpot win on the now-defunct Dark Knight Slot game.
What about Microgaming Slots
Luckily for bingo players, the most popular bingo network in the United Kingdom has recently added Microgaming Slots to their library of games.
It, of course, is the Dragonfish Bingo network which boasts some fantastic bingo games and now an even better selection of online slots. Luckily we will still have access to those games, including Mega Moolah, Thunderstruck 2 and Immortal Romance.
