On June 27 this year, the famous developer announced that Microgaming Software Systems Limited will now be called Apricot Investments. The company will focus on investments, adhering to the gambling industry. The press release indicates that the company will pursue broader interests.
However, the Microgaming brand will not disappear. Oakwood Limited, which was owned by Microgaming Software Systems Limited, will now be called Quickfire Limited and will operate under the Microgaming brand.
Apricot Investments will be headed by Roger Raatgever, who served as CEO of Microgaming for 17 years. But Quickfire Limited will be managed by John Coleman, who also held a position at Microgaming, but only as a CFO.
In general, for the players, I think everything remains the same. Games under the Microgaming brand will be produced as before. Moreover, now the developer himself practically does not release his games, but rather promotes the products of new studios under his own brand.
