In recent news, Microgaming (MG) released a report for its 2018 PlayItForward charity giveaway program. And the provider announced they had given away a total of £30,000 to four charity groups! The move is part of the Gift of Giving campaign, which they do every year.
All and all, Gift of Giving provides MG’s important clients and contacts with a chance to vote for many different charities in the world. So, instead of Christmas gifts, MG’s contacts can decide who’ll receive a share of £30,000. And this year the money will go to organisations in the UK, Europe, Isle of Man, Africa and Switzerland.
The annual Microgaming donation initiative is now entering its seventh year. To receive the money, charities need to win the popular internal vote. Since 2012, MG gave away over £180,000 to several different charity groups. And according to reports the 2018 campaign was a clear success too!
In fact, Teenage Cancer Trust in the UK received the highest numbers of votes. Plus, Heroes on the Water, Save the Rhino International, and Doctors Without Borders also got top votes. As for the Teenage Cancer Trust and Heroes on the Water, this is the first time either charity received money. However, it’s the fourth time Save the Rhino International wins the heart of the voters. And surely a sizable donation by MG will go a long way in saving the animals. Not to mention, they’re celebrating their 25th anniversary this month!
Doctors Without Borders expressed gratitude when receiving the donation. A company representative said “We’re thankful to receive the Gift of Giving’s vote for the fourth time in a row. It’s wonderful to continue our valued partnership with MG”.
Also, a representative from Teenage Cancer Trust said. “Wow, this is fantastic news to start the year. Teenage Cancer Trust wants to support every young person fighting cancer and allow them to continue living their life to the fullest”. Plus, Save the Rhino International had this to say, “We’re incredibly grateful to MG and everyone who voted for us this year”.
Finally, a Chairman at Hero’s on the Water said, “We’d like to send a big thank you to MG for including our charity in the Gift of Giving campaign for 2018. Also, we’d like to thank all the amazing people involved who voted for us”. Each charity received an amazing £7,500.
