Microgaming Celebrates 20th Anniversary on the Isle of Man
One of the World's Leading Developers of Online Casino Gaming Content Microgaming is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its headquarters relocation to the Isle of Man. In honor of this momentous occasion, the company sent 20 separate charitable donations to various organizations established and operating on the Isle of Man. This territory has been the base and headquarters of the gaming giant since the brand moved its main development center there in 2001.
Microgaming CEO John Coleman also commented on this milestone: “A special year for all of us at Microgaming. I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate 20 years in Maine than to support 20 of the island's great causes. I am proud that we continue to expand our roots year after year by playing an active role in the community through the PlayItForward project.”
Through its PlayItForward CSR program launched in 2014, Microgaming supports twenty companies from different areas of business and social activities. In particular, the developer has already provided assistance to a Ramsey bowling alley, a local elementary school, a food bank, and a young man preparing to become a paramedic.
As part of this initiative, since the launch of the project, the developer has donated about 2 million pounds sterling for corporate initiatives, support for the arts and a wide range of community events in the Isle of Man. Since 2001, Microgaming has donated more than £3.5 million to charity.
"In celebration of Microgaming's 20 year stay on the Isle of Man, the company plans to create a 'microforest' in the region's rural areas that will benefit wildlife and biodiversity for years to come. Working with the Wildlife Trust, our staff will plant 1,500 native trees in the south of the island in October,” the developer’s official website reads.
As a reminder, Caesars completed its $4 billion acquisition of William Hill.
