The company was founded in 1994. At present, it is one of the oldest online casino software developers known for its undisputed leadership on the market. Microgamingis loved by fans for its myriad games (most of all slot machines), handsome bonuses, nicely-looking and straightforward software. Unfortunately, casinos operating on Microgaming software stopped accepting US players after UIEGA became effective.
Playtech is a Holland-based company with Israeli capital and Estonian developers. It came on the market later than its competitors – in 1999. Playtech casinos offer twice as little games as Microgaming, but we believe that those it does release are the most vivid and colourful of all. UIEGA concerns Playtech, too: it is open for non-US citizens only.

RTG software is both famous and well-received by the public. Yes, its games are not as numerous as in Microgaming and not as vivid as in Playtech. However, it has a very substantial advantage over the above developers – it accepts players from the States despite UIEGA. Online casinos working under RTG software maintain that they are excluded from the UIEGA jurisdiction (although the US government holds otherwise) and continue to accept US citizens.
The total number of games and slots operating on Rival software is quite modest, not exceeding one hundred. Despite that, Rival offers a nice option for its players, namely, iSlots – interactive slot machines. What differs them from conventional slots is that your win depends not exclusively on your luck, but on your skills, too. As a rule, Rival casinos accept US players, except those few establishments that are owned by firms incorporated in the States.
