Livespins is undoubtedly one of the most exciting and innovative brands in the online gambling industry, and I’m delighted to be given the opportunity to add my commercial leadership experience to what is already a highly-skilled team. I’ve been an early believer in creating social casino experiences, and the Livespins™ product has really cracked the code and is creating a completely new category in the casino space. The simplicity of the bet-behind mechanic mixed with the unparalleled engagement only live streaming can offer will drive significant value for all stakeholders, and we look forward to establishing partnerships with the most innovative operators and game providers of our industry in the near future.
