Apart from being one of the leaders in the online casino business, Isle of Man-based Microgaming is known for its community-oriented programs and projects.

The company is setting a shining example for the entire industry and continues to offer its help and support whenever and wherever they are needed.

Play It Forward

The company’s Play It Forward initiative was introduced four years ago, with the main goal of helping the local community, and offering assistance and full support to outstanding individuals in pursuit of their dreams.

Since 2013, the initiative has achieved outstanding results, but the work never stops.

Microgaming is proud to announce its latest Ambassador Para athlete Ben Grainger. Grainger is one of the most talented Para swimmers, who is expected to achieve great results at the 2020 Paralympics in Tokyo.

Play It Forward has been a sponsor of Isle of Man Para-swimming team since 2015, providing talented individuals the chance to compete in the sport.

Grainger will join triathlete Joseph Ricciardi and swimmer Laura Kinley, and they all will be backed by the online casino company with one long-term goal – to reach Tokyo in three years’ time.

Fourteen-year-old Grainger will soon begin his term at Mount Kelly School, where he will have the opportunity to train with leading coaching professionals.

Blood Drive

Another company’s initiative is Blood Drive, which has recently managed to raise funds for the Joey Dunlop Foundation. The foundation was established in 2001 on the Isle of Man and its main goal is to create special-purpose accommodation that will open up the Island to visitors with a disability.

Microgaming staff raised £725 on World Blood Donor Day, with all 29 employees giving a pint of blood each.

Claire Coleman, Head of Microgaming Play It Forward initiative said the company was happy to support the Joey Dunlop Foundation. She commended the work of the foundation, adding that Microgaming was very proud to offer its full support to projects like this.
