Microgaming offers more blackjack games than any other provider in the online casino gaming industry. The provider’s online blackjack software enjoys a lot of popularity because it comes in several varieties such as the classic version and the Gold Series. The latter comes with higher betting limits and is therefore attractive to high rollers.
The Microgaming blackjack software also includes multi-handed and single-handed variants of the same games. The former enjoy a great deal of popularity among enthusiastic players because it enables them to play as many as five hands simultaneously.
Here is a brief overview of some of the most exciting games in Microgaming’s blackjack portfolio:
