In 2008 Microgaming announced that none of their casinos would accept US players. Since then I've let my Microgaming review get stale, because all their casinos were blocking US players. Recently I got a proxy server out of the UK and gave them a fresh look.

So, please have a look at my updated Microgaming review. This is perhaps the longest single page I have ever written. I've been working on it off and on for about three weeks.

As always, I welcome all comments, questions, and corrections.

I dropped into Ladbrokes, a place I used to play demo-slots a few years ago (2011-12). back then it worked well for us in the US. Now, not so nice. In fairness, their security will not allow a "forbidden state/country" from cash-play, but I was a bit dissapointed that demo-play is now included. Laddy's had/has a fine selection of slots, and a version of Baltimore Drop, and Pachinko. It has been the rule there that no jackpot games or table games could be played as demo from the US. Now its the entire casino as demo.
Some people need to reimagine their thinking.

302 slots? Seriously? THREE HUNDRED and TWO slots!!!

Yes, I realize that there are probably only 20 actual "engines". Even so - if faced with the requirement to make a choice from such a huge array of options, I would either exit the arena, or my brain would explode.

Check out DragonPlay's (Android) "Slot City." They currently have about 5 math models and about 60 slots. People love them their skins.

I confess that I'm kind of anal about that. We currently have 15 slots - 12 deployed, and 3 in the pipe. And for those 15 slots, we have 15 math models.

At the moment anyway I just can't conceive of deploying more than 30 or so slots. If we can get away with it, I'd like to have 30 "themes" and 30 "engines". If a "theme" is tanking, then change it. If an "engine" isn't working, then change it.

As I said, I'm kind of anal about that. It may prove to be impractical - "voice of the customer" and all that.

Yep. And that is just the Flash casino. Chances are they have a lot fewer actual designs and re-skin them.

Graphical designers are much cheaper than mathematicians.

And far, far more plentiful, on the order of many orders of magnitude. The last major gaming effort I was part of had dozens of in-house artists plus contracts with several outsourced art shops. But I was the sole mathematician.

Word of that has gotten around, apparently, and I'm currently in talks to do it again.
