The iGaming industry is home to dozens of software brands. Each creates games across one or more genre — video slots, table classics, video poker, live-dealer options etc.

Which are the most popular gaming software providers on the market today? Let’s take a look at the top 5 brands you’ll see again and again at the biggest online casinos.


Microgaming is ubiquitous, to say the least. Most online casinos feature an assortment of games from Microgaming’s talented team.

Microgaming’s portfolio of titles includes a combination of successful original concepts (Lost Vegas, Thunder Struck, Jungle Jim: El Dorado) as well as video slots based on blockbuster properties like Terminator 2, Battlestar Galactica, Halloween, and Jurassic Park.

Fascinating fact: Microgaming claims to have created the first ‘true’ online casino software back in 1994, followed by the first mobile casino software a decade later. No small feat!


If an online casino features games by Microgaming, it’s a pretty safe bet you’ll see some from NetEnt on there too.

NetEnt has some impressive stats: its gaming systems handled more than 41 billion transactions in 2017 alone, and it works with over 200 of the biggest online casino operators in the world.

NetEnt’s games collection is made up of some of the finest, most popular titles: Gonzo’s Quest, Starburst, Aloha! Cluster Pays, Berry Burst and Twin Spin Deluxe. Its licensed games include Planet of the Apes and Universal Monsters: The Phantom’s Curse.


Yggdrasil launched in 2013 and has gone on to become recognized as a major player in the iGaming industry.

This popular gaming software provider has scooped multiple high-profile awards, including the 2018 EGR B2B Award for Innovation in RNG Casino Software, the 2018 International Gaming Award for Innovator of the Year and more.

Yggdrasil’s games include Baron Samedi, Dark Vortex, Vikings go to Hell, Vikings Go Wild, Incinerator and lots more.


Playtech was established on the last day of the 20th century and launched its first casino two years later. It took a serious approach to build the best team through its Playtech Academy (based in Estonia) and has worked with some of the biggest names in the world of betting.

Playtech has created more than 600 games so far, including such big-name titles as Superman, The Dark Knight, Justice League, The Matrix, RoboCop, Gladiator, Jackpot GIant, Age of the Gods and hundreds more.

You can expect stunning visuals, smooth performance and great design with Playtech’s games (as with all the other popular gaming software providers on this list).

Scientific Games

Last but by no means least, we have the mighty Scientific Games.

Scientific Games produces games in multiple categories and across different channels, catering to online casinos along with brick-and-mortar companies too. Its four divisions cover Gaming, Lottery, Digital and Social, maintained by almost 10,000 employees around the world.

Scientific Games’ portfolio includes King’s Honour, Legend of Fortune, Soldier of Rome, Monopoly Big Money Reels, Rainbow Riches: Drops of Gold, Wonder Woman, Ultimate Texas Hold ‘Em and many more.
