Microgaming expands Online Table Games Selection

Switch Studios installs new online European Blackjack and American Roulette at Microgaming casinos.

Microgaming adds New Online European Blackjack & American Roulette

One of Microgaming‘s most talented exclusive content partners, Switch Studios, is expanding the Quickfire platform once again. This latest installment is bringing the casino software brand’s countless players access to the culturally diverse games of European Blackjack and American Roulette.

Switch Studios is the supplier responsible for revamping the platform’s online table games selection. Microgaming announced their partnership with the software lab in November of 2018, right about the time their first table game, known simply as Roulette, went live. As that first installment clearly showed, the development team at Switch Studios has a knack for creating beautifully rendered, 3D-quality games with an immersive realism that’s hard to beat in the digital realm.

New Online European Blackjack Game

There’s not much you can do to make a blackjack game more classical than it already is – or at least, that’s what I thought prior to this release. Microgaming’s newest electronic dealer addition plays out on a brilliant felt of cerulean blue. The graphics are extremely crisp, giving it a realistic feel that’s bolstered by the tranquil sound of classical piano music reverberating in the background. The cherry on top is the sophisticated voice of a female dealer, commentating the game with an elegant European accent.

The game offers all of the usual elements of a European Blackjack table. Dealer stands on soft 17, player’s can split any two matching cards except 4s, 5s and 10s, which are strategically taboo anyway. Doubling down is permitted on hand totals of 9, 10 or 11 only, and can be placed following a split. The payout for a natural blackjack is a respectable 3:2.

Microgaming’s New American Roulette

I won’t spend too much time glorifying this new online table games selection. As any moderately experienced gambler knows, the American version of roulette is the worst option for fans of this famous wheel game – among the worst of all games in the casino. Due to the presence of the double zero (00), American roulette offers a house edge of 5.26%; nearly twice that of European roulette’s 2.7%, and almost four-times that of the even-money bets in French Roulette with the La Partage rule (1.35%).

With that being said, I can’t fault Switch Studios for its astoundingly pristine visual effects. The roulette wheel is stunningly realistic, endowed with a 3D quality rarely seen in today’s digital casino world. My only suggestion would be to skip the new American Roulette game and play the developer’s original release of (single-zero) Roulette. They are the exact same games, but with better odds in the original version.

Microgaming and Switch Studio Exchange Compliments

In a press release announcing the new additions last week, the games were referred to as providing the “ultimate online casino experience” on any device – desktop, laptop, smartphone or tablet. Here’s what the heads of each company’s gaming department had to say about them.

Switch Studios Tom David went first. “We’re delighted to release not one, but two new games under the Switch Studios brand, exclusively to Microgaming,” he said. “Both European Blackjack and American Roulette demonstrate our ambition to refresh the table-game market with exciting, modern and mobile-friendly gaming experiences.”

Next up was Microgaming’s Head of Games, Jagoda Barber. “Switch Studios has done it again, taking a fresh look at traditional table games and reigniting them for a new era of players,” commends Barber. “With immersive gameplay and customisable features complemented by stunning visuals, new and seasoned players can enjoy the thrill of European Blackjack and American Roulette both at home and on the go.”
