It sure feels like Microgaming (MG) didn’t take a break this summer. In fact, nowadays, the company keeps on inking deals with emerging game studios. If you remember, less than a month ago, MG signed Gameburger as a trusted partner.
And today we’re learning that MG inked yet another deal with one more independent game studio, Neon Valley. The new agreement with Neon Valley marks the 9th signing this year alone. And so as content aggregators sign new brands, MG remains competitive too.
But the new deal with Neon Valley is quite different from the other ones. Indeed, this studio’s mission is to bring the spirit of Vegas outside the US borders. And that sounds promising if you ask us.

But they’re also a lot of benefits for studios to team up with MG. In fact, their partner network is impressive. And it’s certainly something that Neon Valley hopes to capitalise on with their first game release Aurora Wilds video slot.
On first glance, Aurora Wilds video slot seems to have everything to appeal to players. In fact, the new 5 reels, 3 rows game has 4 jackpots, a bonus wheel, expanding wilds, Re-Spins and even offer a win both ways pay structure. And that’s pretty impressive for a game that only has 10 paylines if we may say.
When the news of the agreement between MG and Neon Valley went public. John Coleman, CEO at MG described the game developer as having its “own distinctive style and personality”. But actually, this statement made a few eyebrows rise in the iGaming community, especially after Aurora Wilds video slot went live.
In fact, on first glance, the new game appears to be yet another remake of Starburst by NetEnt given its mechanics. But who knows, maybe the progressive jackpots with bonus wheel will be enough to dethrone Starburst who’s been dominating the 10 paylines, win both ways, expanding wilds with Re-Spin genre for years now.
