Microgaming Finalizes Quickfire Sale

This story was published more than 2 years ago.

Online betting pioneer Microgaming has announced that the sale of its Quickfire business has been completed, with Games Global Limited taking on the business.

We first reported on the agreement last year, and there has been some speculation as to whether or not Microgaming was simply spinning off to another company, but it appears this may not be the case. Instead, Games Global has brought on former IGT employee Walter Bugno to run the firm, while former Playtech employee Tim Mickley will be the group's new CFO.

Microgaming will now focus on providing platform services to online betting operators, while also offering sportsbetting services to operator Betway. Without a doubt, it appears the company's future is going to be a bit different from it's past.

Commenting on the deal Microgaming CEO Andrew Clucas said, "It is an exciting milestone for both Microgaming and Games Global, and is the culmination of months of hard work and dedication from teams on both sides. The online gaming industry will undoubtedly present a wealth of opportunities for Games Global, and we wish them the very best for their journey ahead."

Games Global Limited CEO Walter Bugno added: "We are excited for the full operational launch of Games Global and welcoming a new era in iGaming. Microgaming's historical legacy and impact on the industry has been significant, and we wish the organisation all the best in its next chapter."
