Software Developer Microgaming Releases First Ever Casino App For Windows Phone Users

The Isle of Man based software developer Microgaming has continued to break new ground with their announcement of the first ever casino app developed specifically for Microsoft Windows smart phone users.

With the Windows phone operating system playing second fiddle to both the Android and Apple iOS systems ever since the advent of mobile casino gaming, online casino content for Windows phones has been non-existent, with developers preferring to concentrate on the more popular outlets for any new releases.

Historically this had the effect of leaving BlackBerry and Windows phone preferred gamers out of the loop, as they were unable to access the majority of online mobile casino content.

This has been somewhat corrected in recent times though with the appearance of a number of HTML5 based online sites, which gamers have been able to access through web browsers installed on their phones.

Welcome Aboard Windows Phone Users

In November the developer Microgaming launched the first ever mobile casino app with a specific focus on phones that function using the Microsoft Windows operating system, and positive reports of its use are beginning to filter through now they app has had a few weeks to bed down in the online gaming community.

At time of writing, the new app carries over 35 of Microgaming’s most popular titles from the progressive slots, table games and video poker categories.

Microsoft smart phone users can now access some of Microgaming’s biggest slots titles including Agent Jane Blonde, Mega Moolah, Thunderstruck, Tomb Raider and Treasure Nile.

With a new product comes new expectations, and as such users of the app have been promised on-going software upgrades, improvement in functionality, and additions to the gaming options and titles that are currently on offer.

App Availability And Operating Requirements

At present the new app can only be found online at JackpotCity, though this is likely to change in 2015 as Microgaming looks to push this pioneering software out into the marketplace in order to reach more Microsoft smart phone users.

With no previous software to work with Microgaming had to develop the entirety of the app software from scratch, with their own in-house people undertaking the required coding.

Users of Microsoft smart phones wishing to utilise the new app will need their phones to be operating on a Windows system release of either 8.0 or 8.1.
