Games Global promises new era following Microgaming acquisition


Introduced as “a new age in iGaming”, the official operational launch of Games Global has been announced, following the acquisition of Microgaming’s distribution business, game IP and progressive jackpot network, as well as its interests in a variety of game studios.

Established just last year, Games Global’s CEO is former IGT and Lottomatica man, Walter Bugno, with Tim Mickley, formerly with Playtech and SafeCharge, alongside him as CFO. The full leadership team delivers over 200 years of industry experience and with a total of more than 1,100 employees worldwide, Games Global truly lives up to its name and brand identity. And despite being a comparatively new arrival in iGaming, the company opens its account with 3,000+ games and jackpot titles in its portfolio, and a client list of more than 980 casino brands.

Games Global’s stated intent is a focus on both established international regulated and regulating markets, incorporating innovative technology capable of serving new and existing customers to the highest standards. Studio development will be core to the company’s success, giving each the freedom, platform, tools and distribution network to fully explore their creativity and inspire new developments that will enhance player experience and ultimately grow the industry in new directions.

Walter Bugno, CEO of Games Global commented: “It is with immense enthusiasm I proudly confirm the official ‘go live’ of Games Global. We’re incredibly excited for what we can achieve as we deliver industry-leading content, power continuous growth providing mutual success for Games Global and our partners. Games Global is ready to define the future, lead innovation and make a real difference in the industry.”
