Microgaming Looks To The Future With Time Capsule

Online gambling giant celebrates its first year in new Isle of Man headquarters

Microgaming marked its Isle of Man HQ’s first anniversary with the burial of a time capsule this week, scheduled to be reopened thirty years on

CEO John Coleman celebrated the milestone alongside staff at the software giant’s Isle of Man campus on Wednesday 1 August by placing a time capsule underneath the building’s entrance.

To be opened in 30 years, the capsule contains unique mementos curated from suggestions by staff to commemorate significant events for the company. Vacuum sealed and specially treated to prevent the items tarnishing, the metal capsule included a series of photographs showcasing company highlights, such as staff volunteer days, awards and the first group photo taken at the new offices when the building opened in July 2017.

It also includes a PlayItForward volunteer’s shirt in honour of the company’s CSR initiative, plus various local and international articles from the past year, including Sixty Two being named in a list of “The 10 Coolest offices of 2017” which was published on The Telegraph.

Built with staff in mind, the second office on the island allows for the rapid expansion of Microgaming and Derivco Isle of Man. The 5-storey office now houses over 300 employees, growing from 231 since it opened in 2017.

John Coleman observed: “It is incredibly important for us to mark our first year at Sixty Two. This time capsule captures a snapshot of our campus, our staff and the amazing culture we have fostered here on the Isle of Man for future generations to look back on. Most importantly, this moment serves as a reminder to our future selves of our unique heritage and the people who have made this building more than just a place to work – it is truly a campus to be proud of.”

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
