New Microgaming HQ Honored By Cool Award

When Microgaming opened the doors to its new offices on the Isle of Man in July this year, it was very proud of these innovative headquarters. The headquarters garnered a lot of attention, not only for its excellent design, but also for the fact that employees are treated to the highest of standards in a work environment, and that the building is environmentally friendly.

Now comes the news that Microgaming's new headquarters have been named in the list of Ten Coolest Offices of 2017 in the United Kingdom.

The online casino software group is very proud of this achievement and took the liberty of bragging about it in a press release.

"To feature in the list of the 10 Coolest Offices of 2017, standing alongside some of the biggest consumer brands in the UK, is a fantastic achievement," said John Coleman, the CFO of Microgaming. "A lot of time and effort went into designing and creating a building that was not only fit for purpose from a business perspective, but allows employees to thrive and feel empowered."

"I am proud of what we have created," he added.
