Microgaming announce 2016 Gift of Giving Winners

The Isle of Man-based software developer Microgaming is one of the leading companies in the gambling industry, but this casino products provider is much more than that.

A socially responsible company as it is, Microgaming takes great care of its local community and used every opportunity it gets to support its surroundings through charity.


It has been less than three years since Microgaming launched its program called PlayItForward, which is a community-driven initiative which puts focus on social pillars of health, charity, sport and education.

Through PlayItForward project, the Isle of Man based company has sponsored up-and-rising sports stars, aided the gifted people to gain formal education and raised a great deal of money for dozens of charities.

And that is exactly what the company did once more.

Gift of Giving

Microgaming decided to extend and prolong the Christmas spirit and holiday feeling by donating $37,000 to four global charities, which will split the money equally among them.

In an annual Gift of Giving campaign, Microgaming’s fourth in total, the company’s customers are giving the opportunity to vote for one of several charities in their region – Isle of Man, UK and Europe, Africa and Rest of the World.

December 2016 vote pushed through the Women’s Refuge from the Isle of Man, the UK and Europe’s Teenage Cancer Trust, whereas the Save the Rhino project was voted the charity of choice in Africa.

As for the Rest of the World, the Medicins Sans Frontieres was voted the 2016 winner, which is the second time in total that this independent medical humanitarian organization received a donation from Microgaming.

Interestingly enough, Save the Rhino organization which partners with organizations from Africa and Asia with a mission to save rhinos, scooped the win for a second year running.
