Microgaming Upgrade Rejected by Casino Rewards
13 January 2010
I am sure this came as a disappointment to Microgaming, but looking out for the players interests always comes first!
LAS VEGAS, Nevada — (PRESS RELEASE) — A planned upgrade by game software provider Microgaming has been rejected by CasinoRewards.com in an effort to maintain the best user experience across its 19 online casino brands.
The Microgaming upgrade aims to enhance game-play by increasing screen resolution, but instead has led to negative player feedback due to increased load times and distortion.
CasinoRewards.com has chosen to keep the current software to preserve the very best online gaming across its range of 19 online casinos and poker rooms. CasinoRewards.com stood firm on keeping the original software, featuring better graphics, game-play and stability and being the preferred choice of the player:
“It seems the vast majority of players prefer the pre-upgrade game software still on offer at Blackjack Ballroom, Captain Cooks Casino, Casino Classic and all our other Casino Rewards online casinos. The decision to reject the upgrade was an easy one – we let the players decide which software they prefer, and are happy to continue providing the best gaming experience.”
Veteran and new players alike who prefer the original Microgaming software can visit any of the CasinoRewards.com online casinos to download for free today. Each featured online casino has a generous sign up offer and in some cases a free hour to play the online casino games risk free using the bonus casino money. Indeed, in 2008 a novice gambler from Finland hit the $5.5 million Mega Moolah jackpot using money won during the trial hour using the free $500 casino bonus at http://www.blackjackballroom.com/.
