Microgaming, a leading force in the iGaming industry, has been a key player in fostering responsible gambling practices through its sustained partnerships with numerous charities over the last three years. Here we take a closer look on the safer gambling charities it supports as it goes beyond just gaming.
The company’s dedication is reflected in its diverse support initiatives, which have funded a broad spectrum of projects. These range from the development of educational videos to enhancements in digital infrastructure, all aimed at promoting safer gambling.
Key collaborations this year include support for Ygam, which has channeled Microgaming’s funding into educational programs for faith and community leaders. Gordon Moody has applied its funds towards a comfort fund, providing relief for families grappling with gambling addiction. For over three years, Betknowmore UK has worked with Microgaming, using this year’s donation to revamp its website with fresh, safer gambling content.
Beacon Counselling Trust is directing its contribution towards an animated video to support mental health services in vulnerable communities, focusing on bereavement support. Meanwhile, Motiv8 Addiction Services is using its funds to bolster its cost of living support for those most in need.
Moreover, Microgaming’s advocacy goes beyond individual charities, with a strong presence during Safer Gambling Week. The company organizes mandatory training for its staff, runs compliance sessions, and hosts webinars featuring experts like Dr. Mark Griffiths from Nottingham Trent University and representatives from eCOGRA.
Sarah Campbell, Microgaming’s Director of Compliance, emphasizes the company’s ethos: “Safer gaming and responsible gambling are fundamental to us. We take great pride in our work with charities making a real difference in this sphere. Our collaborative efforts have enabled us to support more vulnerable individuals, offering crucial tools, support, and care. We’re committed to creating a safer, more responsible gambling environment together.”
