Gift of Giving

The Four Winners

The winning charities for 2018 were Heroes on the Water (Isle of Man), Teenage Cancer Trust (UK and Europe), Save the Rhino International (Africa), and Medecins Sans Frontiers (Rest of the World).

Microgaming Manager Speaks

Outlook

The leadership role Microgaming is taking in diverting iGaming revenues to charitable efforts should be not only commended, but the model emulated by other iGaming companies in other regions.
