Microgaming: Playing it Forward for a Great CausePublished November 29, 2014 by Sol FH
Microgaming unveils new PlayitForward initiatives as part of their corporate social (CRS) responsibility program.
Many brands in the online gambling industry give to a wide variety of charitable causes, but few are as extensive in their philanthropic work as are Microgaming. Branded “PlayitForward”, Microgaming’s comprehensive CSR program, which covers numerous activities in community, health, education, sport and charity, is their way of spearheading their support of local programs.
One of the flagship CSR programs, the ambassador initiative supports local UK sports teams, events and has recently released its scholarship project. In addition, the Microgaming Health & Care Trust will continue to facilitate its Manx-registered non-profits and social care projects, but will now reside as an independent body under the umbrella of PlayitForward.
Microgaming has shown its support for their local community with contributions totaling over £800,000 to date, including over ninety individual local donations.
Never Stop Giving
Always striving to grow, Microgaming’s CSR program may soon be found enabling projects outside the UK, proof that they are dedicated to making their social responsibility known. Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming, related: “We’ve been supporting our local community for over a decade, but we’ve often done so in the shadows. Stepping into the spotlight, Microgaming PlayItForward will allow us to combine all of our efforts and resources for the greater good.”
Microgaming is a household name in the world of online gambling and cutting-edge software. True pioneers of the online casino, Microgaming first developed an online offering in 1994. They are leaders in the industry and its software can be found powering many of the most popular brands. In addition to its award-winning line of slots, table games, poker variations and more, Microgaming also has the largest Progressive Jackpot Network available anywhere.
Microgaming’s charitable giving is like a breath of fresh air and it is heartwarming just to know that there are online gambling operators and developers with a vision to make their community a better place to live.
