Isle of Man, 8th April 2009 – Microgaming the world’s largest provider of online gaming software, is proud to announce the launch of its 400th innovative new casino download game, ‘The Great Galaxy Grab’.

This flagship release demonstrates Microgaming’s pioneering dedication to delivering exceptional quality games that offer unrivalled graphics and player functionality in this remarkable and entertaining, rich-featured true video iSlot.

The Great Galaxy Grab features a host of enchanting characters presented in ultra-modern, CGI-style 3D graphics including the love struck Captain Bronzebeard and his robotic crew, who set off around the galaxy in search of Bronzebeard’s beautiful but scheming wife Scarlett and the precious heart she has stolen from his ship, the Galactic Galleon.

Players are invited across a tantalizing trek through the galaxy with each level offering a completely different and exciting gaming experience. The game’s cutting-edge technology means it remembers the player’s last location so that they may return to their position, if they have stopped playing the game and want to come back to it another time.

The Great Galaxy Grab background also changes inside the base game which evolves as the player progresses from one thrilling location to the next – helping to create a truly ‘out of this world’ player experience.

Interspersed with the unique trail of six different and diversely rewarding bonuses, players are offered numerous opportunities to claim up to ten Free Spins at a time, each with 3x multipliers and presenting an unsurpassed interactive player experience.

Microgaming has been the industry leader in innovative gaming solutions for over a decade. Recognised globally for its dedication to providing cutting edge, high-quality games and unique player experiences; the launch of its 400th game signals a momentous achievement for the esteemed company.

The release also demonstrates Microgaming’s ability to create its own market-leading brands, rather than relying on existing branded content for every game release, as many of its competitors do. This ensures that Microgaming drives the best possible payout and value for players.

Roger Raatgever, Microgaming CEO, says: "Microgaming strives to continuously deliver fresh innovative games, entertainment, excitement and big wins for players. Our 400th downloadable casino release ‘The Great Galaxy Grab’ has all of this and more. The advanced 3D graphics and captivating storyline demonstrate our ability to lead the industry into the future of innovative online gaming".
