Microgaming to Assist Students Facing Financial Difficulties

Microgaming to Assist Students Facing Financial Difficulties Microgaming has developed a tertiary education bursary scheme as a means to support to Isle of Man with their education when facing financial difficulties.

The company will pay for accommodations and living costs up to GBP 6,000 per year.

Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming, said, “The youth of the Island are our future - this generation will shape the growth of the Isle of Man. It is essential that we provide them with the tools to reach their potential and that’s why we created this initiative.

"We are passionate about corporate social responsibility and are proud of the contribution we make to the Island. We are well-known for providing support to local charities, health projects, events and sports clubs; our new education initiative complements the work we already do on the island. We want to see the Isle of Man thrive.”

John Gill, Head of Legal and Administrative Services at the DEC, said, “This initiative from Microgaming will be life-changing to several local students. With A-level results announced this week, I encourage anyone who believes they meet the bursary criteria to apply now.”
  • In the US, money from state lotteries fund education on all levels. The monies are generated from the sale of the various types of lottery tickets. These revenues are a godsend to education. Microgaming is not just providing students at Isle of Man with financial assistance, you can also say that they are looking out for their own future in technology by increasing the numbers of educated individuals that might not be able to go down that road otherwise. We can fill the colleges or fill the prisons, our choice.......
  • I am glad with that decision from microgaming. I am always happy to see how big companies from online gambling help to some people who really need this. It is not the secret that this industry have a lot of money, and their willing to share some profit is really awesome. Hat off for microgaming.
  • You don't understand what I mean. For example, If I am the owner of a big company and decide to donate a large sum of money for whatever it is, I will do everything possible, interested people from this donation to hear about it. But I'm not going to say that I made a donation.
  • MerengueBG, if the public aren't notified about things like this then many, many fewer students will ever know about it in order to receive it - advertising is an essential step in proving you are committed to an incentive like this and I think your being overly cynical by making a negative out of what is clearly an overwhelmingly good thing.
  • Well done Microgaming, but this is a cheap advertising. I always thought that charity and good generous actions, do not need to be notified to the public.
  • Very well done for them , big respect for this .
