Microgaming’s customers were the one who had the final say in choosing a charity from their region.

The voting in the company’s fifth Gift of Giving campaign was completed in December, with more than $200,000 donated so far.

The charities that split $42,000 are Women’s Refuge (Isle of Man), Teenage Cancer Trust (the UK and Europe), Save the Rhino International (Africa) and Médecins Sans Frontières (Rest of the World).

The Recipients

The Isle of Man-based charity Women’s Refuge has a 20-years experience in providing accommodation for women and families suffering from domestic abuse, while this donation will ensure the charity continues its operation.

The British Teenage Cancer Trust charity offers its support and helps to cancer patients aged from 13 to 24, helping them and their families to deal with many aspects of this disease. According to Vanessa Simmons, Head of West and Wales for Teenage Cancer Trust, with support from companies like Microgaming, the charity will continue change lives of young cancer patients.

Save the Rhino International has achieved a third consecutive win for the Africa region, receiving around $35,500 in total over the last three years. The goal of this charity is to help preserve endangered rhinos in Africa and Asia.

Médecins Sans Frontières receives the Microgaming donation for the third time, having won the Gift of Giving on two previous occasions, in 2014 and 2016.

Commenting on the donations, Microgaming’s Senior Internal Brand Manager Kate Moughtin said Gift of Giving had been running for five very successful years and added it was fantastic that Microgaming had donated more than $200,000 to a number of very worthy causes.
