Every month, thousands of online casino gamers face an abundance of new games. Specialized gaming pages, such as Total Casino, add new releases as soon as they hit the shelves, ready to provide high-class entertainment and attract players on the hunt for better, and more rewarding games. It is a true jungle out there, not many players can successfully cross.

Mainstream brands, niche gaming studios, titles with features of all sorts… It is easy to lose track and get lost. Still, that doesn’t have to be the case. Anna Rosak, digital marketing specialist and online gaming expert (read her bio here), says that players don’t have to know all studios or play all games, but rather focus on a curated selection of top-notch providers.

“Big gaming studios are no longer simple suppliers, but content aggregating platforms. This means they serve as a starting point for smaller companies. In addition to their own releases, they also make sure to collaborate with amazing niche studios and serve their titles as well”, explains Rosak. And what are the hottest studios out there? Anna knows the answer!


Established in 1994, Microgaming was the first to introduce novelties such as branded games and mobile slot machines. Nowadays, it is famous for its global progressive jackpots, such as Mega Moolah and WowPot! series that start at millions and millions of dollars.

“Each time a player spins reels on these games, a small percentage of the bet goes into the pot. The progressive feature makes Microgaming’s progressive bigger and more rewarding than any other jackpot on the market”, reveals Anna.

Yet, this gaming giant is not all about progressives. It also has a stellar selection of slot machines of all sorts, including blockbusters such as Immortal Romance and Jungle Jim El Dorado. It is a true pioneer in the world of gaming, and brand players can always count on.

Pragmatic Play

Pragmatic Play built an incredible reputation thanks to its vibrant and vivid slot machines. Releases such as Wolf Gold and Chilli Heat are not only highly entertaining, but also more rewarding than your average slot online.

“Pragmatic Play is a software provider that knows how to build tension and suspension within a game of any kind. Its bonus features are mesmerizing, and take the entire experience to a whole new level”, says Anna, whose favorite Pragmatic Play game is the cult classic The Dog House.

Recently, the company also took a shot with live gaming, by introducing Pragmatic Play Live. It goes without saying its live tables were an instant success!


NetEnt is a gaming studio with more blockbusters under its belt than Steven Spielberg. Established in 1998, it was one of the first online gaming companies to make a major impact and set standards for the industry.

“Gonzo’s Quest, Starburst, Divine Fortune, Guns N’ Roses… there are more successful games than you can count! The most impressive thing about them is that they are a gift that keeps on giving. Netent has the ability to create slot machines that will keep you engaged for a long time”, adds Anna.

NoLimit City

No Limit City is a relatively new online gaming brand, certified by all respected online gaming authorities. Even so, they might not be up to everyone’s alley. According to the expert, NoLimit City titles have an added level of grittiness and gore that tends to leave players puzzled and perplexed, perhaps even offended.

“NoLimit City literally has no limits. Some themes its slots feature include mental institutions, cannibalism, prisons of all sorts, toxic waste, waste in general – they definitely target quite peculiar audiences”, explains Rosak.

Despite flirting with bad taste, NoLimit City slot machines have a loyal following, due to massive payouts and attractive features that promise great wins on a single spin. Like it or not, it takes courage to step away from leprechauns, pirates, and cute candies. It takes a lot of courage to do so!


Founded in 2006 in Sweden, Evolution (formerly known as Evolution Gaming) is the biggest, boldest and maybe even the best live gaming studio in the industry. In addition to beloved classics such as baccarat, roulette and blackjack, its portfolio also holds sic bo, teen patti, casino poker, dragon tiger and a plethora of game shows. The list goes on and on and seems to be never-ending, as the company frequently releases new and unique live casino games.

“Game shows are one of the main assets that sets Evolution apart from its competitors. Other brands have also tried to create gaming shows, but Evolution does it better on every level”, claims Anna, “The right mix of genres, bonus features, special mini-games, massive payouts, and themed studios proved to be Evolution’s recipe for success.”
