Before online casinos came into the scene, Microgaming was the first company that built first fully functional gambling software. It was able to do so by using software that was developed by Cryptologic. This led to safe online transactions which later led to the development of the first online casino in 1994. It was at this time the Antigua and Barbuda passed the Free Trade and Processing Act that allowed operators to hold licenses for open online casinos.
Quickfire is a platform developed by Microgaming in a bid to boost browser-based play for online casinos. The platform w as developed in 2010 and at the time featured only games from Microgaming. However, in recent years, this has changed and other software companies are using the platform to offer games. Other software developers using the Quickfire software include Genesis Gaming, Sheriff Gaming, Quickspin and Nextgen.
Quickfire is considered to be a cost-effective solution for online gambling operators. The platform offers more than 500 popular casino games. The game catalog is upgraded on a monthly basis hence gamers can expect fresh content all year round.
