Microgaming Lends Support for Education Bursaries Initiative


Microgaming Lends Support for Education Bursaries InitiativeMicrogaming has been recognized throughout the years for innovative development of some of the top online slot games in the industry. The Isle of Man technology leader recently has shown in addition to the development of its online casino gaming content its involvement as a sponsor to raise funds for the Isle of Man Hyperbaric Chamber.

Early this month the announcement of the 2014 Soapbox Race Event to be held 11-13th of September for the Isle of Man Hyperbaric Medical Facility and the Friends of the Hyperbaric Chamber was made. All proceeds will go to further the research and progression of the facility.

“We enjoy getting involved in fun, team-building, local events and this one really stood out! Elliott has done a great job in pulling it all together and we can’t wait to get stuck in and make it an event to remember!” – Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming

The Microgaming Soap Box Race is also being supported by More Music 3FM, who have come on board as the official media partner for the event.

In between releasing one of the summer’s hottest new branded slots, Jurassic Park™, Microgaming has also announced the Education Bursaries Initiative that will allow students to progress further in their academic studies by providing financial stability.

Through the award program, Microgaming will provide an annual funding for accommodations and essential living costs (excluding course fees) up to £6,000. Microgaming stated the reason for their participation is to further support the youth of the Island and to develop the growth of the students.

Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming, explains: “It is essential that we provide them with the tools to reach their potential and that’s why we created this initiative. We are incredibly passionate about Corporate Social Responsibility and are proud of the contribution we make to the Island. We are well-known for providing support to local charities, health projects, events and sports clubs; our new education initiative complements the work we already do on the island. We want to see the Isle of Man thrive.”

Management of the bursaries and distribution will be met by the Department of Education and Children (DEC).
