Microgaming’s New HQ Open for Business


MicrogamingISLE OF MAN – Microgaming’s new purpose built HQ on the Isle of Man, adjacent to its existing office, officially opened on 31 July 2017.

Construction began on the new office in April 2015, and just over two years later the company’s building, named Sixty Two, has opened. The 5-storey office houses over 100 employees, with a unique sky bridge joining the new and existing building, creating a campus for the company. All guests will be welcomed in the beautiful reception area that celebrates Microgaming’s product (with a demo wall to showcase games and awards), its employees (with a legends wall honouring the longest-serving members of the team) and its home (with a periscope showing a 360-degree view of Douglas, Isle of Man).

Designed with employees front of mind, the office environment fosters a culture of collaboration and communication. There are 16 meeting rooms, hot desks, and phone booths, as well as plenty of break-out areas on every floor. The entire fourth floor of the building is a communal area, featuring a canteen and coffee shop (with an exclusive Microgaming coffee blend!) to keep employees fuelled, as well as a darts board, pool tables, a poker table, table tennis table and a library for staff to take time out, away from their desks. A high emphasis has been placed on staff wellbeing with the provision of an in-house gym, a treatment room and a spacious studio to host weekly fitness classes, in addition to a rooftop garden offering stunning views of the island.

“Following a number of years of hard work and commitment, it’s incredibly satisfying to see Sixty Two open. A lot of time was spent understanding the needs and wants of our employees so that a building could be designed specifically with them in mind. All involved, including staff and suppliers, should be incredibly proud of what they have achieved – I can’t thank them enough.” John Coleman, CFO of Microgaming

Ensuring the building is as environmentally friendly as possible, Microgaming has worked closely with BREEAM, the world’s foremost environmental assessment method and rating system for buildings. The 45,000 square feet office is one of the first on the Isle of Man to achieve the BREEAM rating of Excellent, reflecting the company’s strong commitment to sustainability.

Key features have been built in to ensure efficient energy and waste management, including smart lighting that automatically dims to reduce consumption, air quality and temperature monitoring, as well as centralised recycling facilities on each floor. In addition, coffees and smoothies at the café are served in reusable cups and the materials used during construction have been repurposed to build new furniture, such as the scaffolding planks which have been turned into a table for the breakout area.

The second office on the island allows for the rapid expansion of Microgaming and Derivco Isle of Man, with overall staff numbers sitting at 231 to date.

“It’s incredible to think that when we set up Microgaming on the island back in 2001 there were just six staff. Now we are 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.” Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming

Microgaming was intent on using Manx-based businesses and workforce wherever possible, including Auldyn Construction Limited, Bell Burton Associates, Curtins, March Consultants Limited and SMS (IOM) Ltd. In addition, local architects, Savage & Chadwick took the lead role in the design of the building.

Interior furnishings were curated by Claire Coleman, who also designed bespoke installations such as the reception desk, the scaffold table, Legends Wall, bar front, library and external building sign. These installations, with the exception of the reception table, have all been manufactured locally by Macro Metal. Internal graphics throughout the building, including the Culture Ambassadors wall, illuminated signage, in addition to the bubble gum machine were produced by The Hive and installed by Vivid Ltd.—sixty-two

Microgaming Rolled Out EmotiCoins Slot


MicrogamingISLE OF MAN – Microgaming is buzzing with excitement with the launch of EmotiCoins, an online slot developed through a staff-powered innovation initiative.

Based on the hugely popular emoticon phenomenon, EmotiCoins is a five reel, 30 payline online slot born from an idea pitched by two members of staff, Anna McChesney and Rob Mercer, at the Microgaming Idea Factory, a staff-powered innovation initiative which won The Spark Award 2017.

“As a marketer, to me the use of emoticons in social media and communication is fascinating; they have essentially become a universal language! 92% of the world’s online population use emoticons, so developing a themed game would automatically target the demographic of our operators’ players.” Anna McChesney, PR Manager for Microgaming

First submitted to the Idea Factory contest in June 2016, Anna and Rob highlighted the use of emoticons in today’s world. For example, including emoticons in Facebook posts can increase the number of likes by 57% and Face with Tears of Joy is the most tweeted emoticon with over 16.5 billion tweets to date*.

The themed slot idea gained the sponsorship of the Business Intelligence team from an early stage, helping the duo refine EmotiCoins by suggesting game features that were most likely to be successful, based on the typical emoticon user. Using these insights, Anna and Rob pitched a unique set of emoticons alongside the feature sets to complement the game’s theme at their final pitch to the Decision Panel (a selection of senior executives) in November.

EmotiCoins was subsequently announced at the staff Christmas party in December 2016 as one of five winning ideas out of the 27 put forward, and its journey from prototype to reality was kick started. Just one month later, one of Microgaming’s game development teams fully embraced the game and began to bring the online slot to life.

It was amazing to see what they did with the research and background we developed. We really love the completed game!” Rob Mercer, Enterprise Solutions Team

Fast forward to August and EmotiCoins is ready to delight players with a mixture of vibrant graphics, upbeat soundtrack and exciting wilds, brought to life by a crew of cheerful emoticons including favourites such as Tears of Joy, Kiss and Winking Face.

EmotiCoins boasts not just one, but two brand new wild features in both the base game and free spins: Wild Blast™ and Wild Stickers™. Players can trigger Wild Blast™ on any spin to grant them five extra Wilds and award a guaranteed win, and landing three scatters in the base game will trigger 10 free spins with Wild Stickers™.

EmotiCoins is sure to have players laughing out loud with wins of up to 92,000 coins and a minimum bet of 0.30.

The game is live with Microgaming and Quickfire operators on desktop and mobile

“We are super excited to be taking live the first game concept driven from the Idea Factory by staff members who would ordinarily not be involved in game conception. And it’s a great game to be our first – the game studio did a fantastic job.” Lydia Barbara, Head of Innovation Strategy at Microgaming
