Microgaming Makes Big Purchase for Children's Hospital

Date Published: July 1, 2013

Gambling overall isn't treated like a legitimate profession in a lot of areas of the world. Many religions have regulations or rules against certain types of gambling, and the lack of regulation in the gambling world in the past has led to a bad reputation that is, for the most part, unfair when applied to today's gambling environment. The establishments are much safer, games are made fairer with better payout percentages, and business practices are audited and tested on a regular basis. In short, the reputation that the gambling industry has now is more of a result of past mistakes than the current condition of the business.

With that being said, it's very important for the major companies in the present-day gambling community to give back and help out others while rebuilding the reputation of the industry. Microgaming is one of the top two online casino software providers in the world, and they are known for their charity. Recently, they made a pretty big purchase for Noble's Hospital in the form of a VeinViewer. A VeinViewer lights up a person's veins using infrared light to make it easier to find veins in children. It's often hard to find veins in many young people, and this results in them being stuck with needles over and over again. In short, this is going to allow for much more comfortable and less painful treatment.

The Microgaming Health & Care Trust is the portion of the giant company that made this purchase for Noble's Hospital, and it's an expense that costs several thousand dollars. They support a lot of different charities and healthcare centers, and this earned them the 2012 Isle of Man Award for Excellence for Corporate Social Responsibility. They provide equipment, donations and other help with many important projects.

Microgaming is an absolute juggernaut in the online gambling world. By showing that they are willing to put in a serious amount of effort in giving back to people who are in need, it reflects very positively on the gambling community as a whole. Projects like this and the Microgaming Health & Care Trust are a critical part of reforming the reputation of gambling companies as being predatory, and it also helps to show that the overall gambling industry is much cleaner and people-focused than it used to be. Overall, it's a great thing for a lot of kids that Noble's Hospital has received this new equipment.
