Safer gambling charities receive Microgaming boost



Reading Time: 2 minutes


Pioneering platform provider shines a light on the incredible work being done by safer gambling charities

Microgaming is acknowledging and spotlighting the incredible responsible gambling and safer gaming charities that it works with.

The leading platform provider has fostered strong partnerships with a number of safer gambling charities building these vital relationships over the last three-plus years.


Microgaming works closely with each charity to understand the projects that will have the greatest impact on service users, providing donations to support a wide range of meaningful projects.

Activities range from expanding the services offered, to producing educational videos as well as improving websites and digital infrastructure.

Here is a list of some of the safer gaming charities that have received support from Microgaming throughout the year:

  • Ygam
  • Gordon Moody
  • Beacon Counselling Trust
  • Betknowmore UK
  • Motiv8 Addiction Services

Ygam used its Microgaming donation toward plans to expand its educational training with faith and community leaders, while Gordon Moody used its donation to boost its comfort fund which supports family members affected by those going through gambling addiction treatment.

Betknowmore UK has worked with Microgaming for more than three years and this year significantly improved its digital and website infrastructure. Its donation was put to modernising the charity’s website to include more safer gambling content.

It was also used for the development of digital self-help materials and tools, and for the creation of more interactive media materials to support the organisation’s work.


Beacon’s donation will help fund an animated video used to support its work as a mental health service provider within vulnerable communities with a particular focus on Paul’s Place, its suicide bereavement service.

Motiv8 IOM will use its donation to top up its cost of living fund to help those who need it most.

Microgaming is also a huge supporter of Safer Gambling Week with several initiatives planned to include compulsory training for staff, compliance sessions and webinars with gambling addiction specialists such as Dr Mark Griffiths (Nottingham Trent University) and eCOGRA.

Sarah Campbell, Director of Compliance at Microgaming, said: “Safer gaming and responsible gambling is in our DNA. We take huge pride in working with and supporting a range of charities that are doing truly great work in this area.

“Through our support, these organisations are able to reach more at-risk persons than ever before and provide them with the tools, support and treatment they need. We are genuinely pleased with the projects and relationships we’ve formed with our charitable partners over the years.


Together, we can create a safer and more responsible gambling environment for all.”

RAW iGaming teams up with Digitain



Reading Time: 2 minutes

Pioneering online casino content provider boosts distribution by partnering with major platform provider

RAW iGaming, the developer that takes a “Stand Out or Stand Down” approach to its online slots, has joined forces with Digitain in a deal that significantly increases the distribution and reach of its titles.

Operators powered by the cutting-edge Digitain platform can now offer their players some of the most in-demand content in the market, with each of RAW’s games having been designed to put players on the edge of their seats with every spin.

This is achieved through RAW’s unique approach to game development which combines innovative, trademarked mechanics and bonus features with striking design, big sound, and characters and narratives that draw players in.


Digitain now has access to RAW iGaming’s full portfolio with leading games including Ave Caesar, Raging Super2Ways and the latest release Twisted Toy TalesTM.

These titles include RAW’s flagship innovations such as SuperSlice®, SuperTracks® and SuperSymbolsTM.

SuperSlice uses wheels instead of reels while SuperTracks uses pathways or tracks to determine wins. SuperSymbols is another RAW innovation and sees adjacent matching symbols combine – the bigger the SuperSymbol, the bigger the win potential.

Digitain’s commitment to innovation aligns with RAW iGaming’s development philosophy, making this a strong partnership between two companies that believe in pushing boundaries and trying new things.

Tom Wood, Founder and CEO of RAW iGaming, said the provider has hit the market with players by daring to be different while still ensuring its mechanics and games are easy to understand.


“Players like to try new things, but they are not willing to spend time and money learning something entirely new. They want to play, and they want to be entertained, and we ensure that’s the case when they engage with any one of our titles.

“This partnership with Digitain is a big step forward as it significantly increases the reach of our games among prestigious operators as well as challenger brands looking for something new.”
