MicrogamingAward-winning online gaming software provider and leader in the iGaming and gambling industry, Microgaming, have announced that there are exciting developments ahead. John Coleman, who has been the company’s Chief Financial Officer up until now, has been appointed as the brand’s new Chief Executive in charge.

The company recently released a statement, making the news official, and saying that Coleman had been serving the enterprise in recent years by playing a central role in company operations and the general efficient running of the business activities.

Exciting Times Ahead

Coleman is very obviously happy to accept his new appointment and has said that he is honoured to be serving the company at such a crucial time for the business. Coleman said that there were exciting opportunities ahead and that he was in a fortunate position to be at the core of the developments and overall growth.

Diversifying Avenues

On the software development end of business, Microgaming has named Roger Raatgever as the new Executive Chairman for Apricot Systems. Raatgever has been acting in the capacity of Chief Executive for the brand’s Software Systems (now re-named Apricot Investments) for the past 17 years.

Commenting on its newest appointment, Apricot Investments has said in a statement that going forward, it will hold a wide variety of public as well as private assets, and will continue to focus on the interactive gaming and gambling landscape. The company also revealed that it will act as an investment vehicle and will begin to widen its scope of services in the iGaming and gaming industry. The purpose of the re-branding is, in essence, to enable the company to act as an investment company.

It certainly has been a month to remember for them, as they have also recently released their new games development vehicle, named Stormcraft Studios. The new development enterprise will be developing content specifically for Microgaming and has released its first 5-reel and 40 paylines video slot named Fortunium.

Microgaming Software Systems (now Apricot Investments) has released a statement saying that Stormcraft Studios will be driven by the same creative team responsible for legendary hits like Mega Moolah and Immortal Romance and that the team will continue in the same fashion that it has been performing during previous decades.

The only difference will be that Stormcraft Studios will not be making available its content to other enterprises, but will be developing content exclusively for Microgaming
