New Home for Microgaming in Isle of ManThe online casino software provider, Microgaming, which supplies games to a number of top online casinos such as Roxy Palace Casino, has announced the opening of its new headquarters. The building was opened on the Isle of Man, adjacent to the company’s existing building. A stunning architectural achievement, a sky-bridge, joins the two.

It took four long years, from the time that Microgaming announced the need to expand in order to house its growing team of employees, and until last week when the new headquarters were finally opened officially.

The reason it took so long to build was the fact that Microgaming wanted to ensure that the HQ, named Sixty Two, serve every possible need of its employees. Microgaming is of the belief that happy, satisfied team workers produce better products. This translates into better games for Microgaming’s ever-growing portfolio and the player is the ultimate winner.

The five-storey office building is able to house around 100 employees. The first impression of the building is its welcoming reception room, adorned with multiple certificates and awards won by the group over the years in the online casino industry.

Other highlights of Sixty Two include:
• 16 meeting rooms
• Break out areas on every floor
• A communal area taking up the entire fourth floor, including a canteen and coffee shop, darts board, pool tables, poker table, table tennis table and fully stocked library.
• An in-house gym
• Treatment room
• Spacious studio for fitness classes
• Rooftop garden with stunning views of the Isle of Man

Commenting on the new building was the chief executive officer of Microgaming, Roger Raatgever, who said: “It’s incredible to think that when we set up Microgaming on the island back in 2001, there were just six staff. Now we have a campus in the heart of Douglas with two large offices, and best of all, they are connected by a sky bridge, which was a must for me! It’s an exciting new chapter for Microgaming and I’m immensely proud of what we achieved in our home.”

The CFO of Microgaming, John Coleman, said that it was immensely satisfying to finally see Sixty Two open its doors, considered to time spent understanding the needs and wants of the employees.
