He continued, “We recognise the importance of developing games with cross-platform capability; our achievement with Thunderstruck II signifies the start of things to come.” The next game to be released on mobile was a pokie called Reel Thunder. This game became Microgaming’s 40th mobile casino game.

We have spent years perfecting the art of creating graphically appealing, immersive and compelling games for PC, so why would we give the mobile player a different experience?
