|Julie Sidwell made it her goal to champion fair gaming, and she did this with a driving passion, tempered by a cheerful and open approach. Julie's sincerity and integrity, and unerring sense of fairness, won her the respect of player and operator alike.|
Although Gambling Grumbles and eCOGRA were the organisations that she worked through, Julie dealt with a wide range of persons and companies, and Microgaming was fortunate to work with her a number of times. Whatever task Julie undertook, either with us or for the industry, it was always accompanied with confidence, a passion for the industry, and an optimism about everything that she did.
Julie's legacy to this industry will be the uncompromising standards that she set in her pursuit of fair play. But Julie will also be remembered for her warmth and friendliness, and the courage in adversity that characterised the way she dealt with all around her, and with life.
Her passing is a great loss to the industry and to those who knew her. Our thoughts are with Julie's family during this difficult time, and we would like them all to know that she will be remembered also as a special and valued friend.
