Thomas Rhys Jones Becomes CEO of Yolted Games Studio
Yolted, the young games developer backed by Hero Gaming and with a stated ambition of electrifying the industry, has announced the appointment of Thomas Rhys Jones as its new CEO.
Jones has spent more than 15 years working in the iGaming industry and brings with him detailed knowledge of agencies, operators, games and technology providers, including Quickspin, Cherry Group and Amaya. He has also spent a significant amount of time managing international teams and running key business initiatives.
In his new role, Jones will be responsible for driving the company’s strategy, cementing its position in present markets, and expanding its portfolio with the aim of achieving future growth.
I’m incredibly honoured to be given the opportunity to bring Yolted’s games into the wider iGaming market. There’s been an astonishing amount of work done in the background over the last 18 months, with demonstrable cutting-edge technology, innovative games and unique features created with our partners. We’ve experienced significant growth in player numbers and revenues throughout 2021, and plan to continue in this vein by bringing Yolted into the wider marketplace. Our goal is to ‘create, advance and electrify’ within iGaming and our upcoming slots and commercial plans put us in an advantageous place to continue to capture market share.

He explained that Jones has “proven leadership” skills and a “passion for game development”. Westin explained that they believe Jones is the right person to help Yolted strengthen its presence in target markets and enter new markets. He added, “Together with the rest of Yolted’s talented team, Tom will help us drive our strategy to ensure top-class games and to steer the business to further success.”
