Online casino gaming has become increasingly popular, bringing the fun and excitement of gambling to the comfort of your home. But these games we play at our favourite online casinos don’t just pop out of the ether; they’re made by dozens of excellent game developers. These game devs work hard to innovate the world of casino gaming and bring us new original games to wager on.
We’ve picked out and spotlighted our favourite casino software producers from 2023. If you find a game made by one of these, you know you’re in for a good time.
Here are the top 10 best casino software providers in 2023:
Games Global is the company established to manage the selection of games and developers under the Microgaming umbrella. Microgaming has been a prominent name in the iGaming industry since its founding in 1994, and in 2022, it handed off its library with more than 1000 games to Games Global.
The Games Global gaming library has some of the most popular casino game titles of all time, including Immortal Romance, 9 Masks of Fire and Mega Moolah.
NetEnt is one of the oldest game developers on the market. Founded in 1996, it has since added more than 200 games to its library, which have found worldwide popularity. NetEnt has helped to shape the world of iGaming as a whole, even being the first developer to add ‘cascading reels’ to a slot game, which is now a staple of the form. Some of its top titles are Starburst, Gonzo’s Quest, and Divine Fortune.
Playtech is another big player in the industry, operating since 1999 and known for its high-quality, cross-platform focused games. Playtech has produced all sorts of games over the years, including slots, table games, bingo, betting software and even some live dealer titles. Among its standout titles are Age of the Gods, Gladiator, and Buffalo Blitz.
Evolution Gaming is a notable development company because it specialises in live dealer games. These games live stream a real dealer that players can interact with through the game software. It brings a bit of the action from live gambling back to online gaming. They also provide a unique range of live game show titles and first-person casino experiences.
Founded in 2015, Pragmatic Play has been a trailblazer for the short amount of time it's been on the market. They produce exciting, modern games and are producing games for all corners of the iGaming world. Check out its top titles like Big Bass Bonanza, Might of Ra and Spaceman.
Yggdrasil Gaming is another favourite of the iGaming industry, featuring a library of games with innovative and engaging mechanics for the optimum player experience. They’ve worked hard to bring its software to the global market and now have branches all across Europe. Some of its best titles are Pushy Cats, Hades Gigablox and Florageddon!
ELK Studios is a Swedish software provider that focuses on the use of complex mathematics and algorithms to bring a new level of excitement and randomness to its games. ELK Studios proudly announces that it values quality over quantity, committed to making its titles exciting and fun above all else. Some of its best games include Nitropolis 4, Wild Toro and Avalon Gold.
Quickspin is a company dedicated to making the high-quality games its founders wanted to see on the market. Since launching in 2011, Quickspin has continued to innovate, bringing fun and good-looking games to all of our favourite casinos. Its most popular games include Big Bad Wolf, Sakura Fortune, and Sticky Bandits.
Play’N GO was founded to answer what was, at the time, a gap in the market: mobile gaming. It was still early days, but the potential for gaming on the go was on the verge of taking off, and Play’N GO was there at ground zero. Its library specialises in being mobile-first, developed to work perfectly on mobile devices as well as desktops. The best titles in its library include Book of Dead, Moon Princess and Reactoonz.
Hacksaw is the youngest studio on our list but has already gone far to establish itself as a big player. Its library is small but full of top-tier games that pack a punch. Its top games include titles like Rotten, Itero and Toshi Video Club.
The online casino software providers mentioned above are just a few of the many out there. So many of them are excellent, and you never know when you’re going to find your next favourite developer. But with these top ten, you’ll know you’re in for a good time when you find a game from one of them.
Why are casino software providers important?
Most online casinos host games instead of making them, and without the fantastic developers out there, we wouldn’t have such a steady stream of excellent games to wager on. Not only this, but developers provide the very software casino websites run on, supporting our favourite table games, bingo and scratchcards too.
When you find a game that sucks you in, you have the development team behind it to thank. Keeping an eye on developers you like can help you consistently find games that speak to you. Not to mention that you can trust high-quality studios to be fair and run on true RNG.
