Global Games Completes Acquisition of Quickfire
Leading iGaming developer Microgaming has announced the completion of the sale of its Quickfire online games portfolio and distribution business to Games Global Limited.
The deal, which was first announced in November 2021, will see Games Global take complete ownership of Quickfire’s suite of gaming content and extensive customer network across more than 900 gaming brands.
Relatively new in the industry, Games Global was founded as a private capital-backed company in 2021. It’s led by CEO Walter Bugno and CFO Tim Mickley. The two individuals are highly experienced in the iGaming industry, having worked for A-list companies like IGT and Lottomatica and Safecharge and Playtech, respectively.
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 organization all the best in its next chapter.
With Quickfire out of its control, Microgaming plans to focus more on supplying platform systems and services to leading gaming brands like Games Global and its players.
The company will also continue to offer its sports betting software to leading sportsbook operator, Betway.
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.
