10/09/2012 :  MICROGAMING EXCLUSIVE ONLINE PARTNER TO THE HIPPODROME
 
Landmark terrestrial venue to be developed online by experienced online gaming firm
 
Microgaming has become the London-situated, newly launched, terrestrial casino The Hippodrome's exclusive online partner.
 
The iconic venue in London's Leicester Square, whose history spans over a century, recently underwent a multi-million Pound Sterling casino and entertainment complex re-vamp.  The venue formerly served as a theatre, circus and nightclub.
 
The Hippodrome re-opened its newly designed casino doors in July 2012 replete with 200 electronic gaming terminals, 30 tables, 20 true slots and a poker area across its three levels.
 
The Hippodrome has selected Microgaming as the exclusive developer and provider of its online offering at Hippodrome Casino.com along with the supply of a full suite of games and mobile gaming applications.
 
Microgaming will work alongside Betway, which will be responsible for back office support, including customer loyalty programmes.
 
Roger Raatgever, chief executive officer of Microgaming, said: “Microgaming is proud to have been selected as the exclusive provider of online gaming software to the iconic London brand The Hippodrome. The convergence of offline and online gaming is a trend that Microgaming has been at the forefront of for some time now and we are delighted to be able to provide a bespoke online casino to The Hippodrome, giving their players a first class cross-platform gaming experience.”
