NetEnt or Microgaming: what slot to choose?
Beginners are usually worried by the question – what slot to choose, as they know that their win depends on their decision of slot. Skilled gamblers have their own strategy – set of slots or providers, as they know the behaviour of these slots.
In our previous article “How to choose a slot for gambling” we have already told about choosing a slot for your first gambling. In this article, we will tell you about the most popular providers of slots – NetEnt and Microgaming.
Microgaming company was established in 1994 and became one of the first online slot providers. It’s a well-known and trusted slots provider among slot players. There are a lot of Microgaming slots in online casinos. Unfortunately, most of them have low-quality graphics, similar bonuses and low winnings. However, there are around a dozen slots like “Playboy”, “Terminator 2”, “Jurassic Park” which are very popular.
Nowadays Microgaming regularly releases new slots, but none of them becomes popular. That refers for example to Sun Tide, Dragon Dance, Lucky Twins and etc.
The NetEnt company was established in 1996, but it became a slot provider much later, so it considers being a newcomer for the online gambling market. Despite this fact, NetEnt reached huge market share (around 40%) for a short period of time. This success is based on the difference between NetEnt slots and all other: NetEnt has nonstandard game mechanics and bonuses. However, NetEnt has the same amount of popular slots as Microgaming – around a dozen. NetEnt slots are good in keeping game balance, which can be helpful for clearing casino bonus.
NetEnt slot graphics is the other thing, which we would like to note – is graphics, which make slots pleasant to play. Now NetEnt team includes skilled marketers, psychologists, developers and designers, and this team clearly understands gamblers.
Comparison of winnings amount
Both providers have high variance slots with a chance to have 3000x bet multiplier during the free spins. Furthermore, both providers nowadays tend to make new slots with low variance, frequent free spins and bonuses – more fun, but less win.
