Mr Bengtsson is currently the Chief Executive Officer at William Hill. He joined in 2018 as Chief Digital Officer and during 2019 he led the GBP 240M acquisition of Mr Green.

Ulrik has a bachelor’s degree in management from Dalhouisie University in Canada.

Tobias Persson Rosenqvist, Chairman of the nomination committee, commented: “I wish to express my warmest thanks to Mr Lundberg for his hard work with regards to creating a well-balanced mix between entrepreneurial creativity and well-functioning governance and structure. I am with that said also very excited about Mr Bengtsson as the new suggested chairman of the board. With his profound knowledge, connections and experience from the global scene of iGaming combined with first-hand experience from large scale international transactions, he is perfect for the job to further accelerate our growth.”

“When I was appointed as Chairman of the Board in 2017, I had a clear mission. This was to lead the work with creating structure and processes to ensure Raketech would successfully be able to operate in a listed environment, on Stockholm Nasdaq First North. Looking back, I am proud and happy to be able to conclude that Raketech now is a stable listed company with a strong and confident management in place, guided by a clear strategy. My mission is thereby done, and it is time for me to hand over to someone else who can take Raketech to the next level. I look very much forward to following the company from the sideline, watching the CEO Oskar Mühlbach and his management team together with the board of directors, deliver on Raketech’s ambitious growth and expansion goals”, said Christian Lundberg, Chairman of the Board in Raketech.

The nomination committee furthermore proposes the re-election of Fredrik Svederman, Annika Billberg, Johan Svensson, Erik Skarp as well as the new election of Magnus Gottås. The nomination committee’s complete proposal and motivational statement will be presented in connection with the notice convening the Annual General Meeting.

Unity, the world’s leading platform for creating and operating real-time 3D (RT3D) content, has announced the beta launch of Unity Gaming Services – a new platform experience that unifies Unity’s existing Operate Solutions for games and introduces new tools and services that simplify any developer’s ability to launch cross-platform, multiplayer games.

With just a few clicks right from the Unity Editor, Unity Gaming Services instantly brings multiplayer games online through seamless integration with Unity Netcode and Transport. The platform also includes everything developers need for live game operations no matter their size, including providing them the ability to sync their game logic with Unity’s backend services without going through a heavy platform release process. With a single dashboard and visibility into all data streams, developers get a 360-degree view of their game’s performance and gain actionable insights in one place. Unity Gaming Services is free to start, and developers only pay as they scale with transparent pricing.

“Our mission is to enable success for our developers, who today are managing an increasingly complex new reality that needs to meet growing player demand for cross-platform multiplayer games and at the same time requires tremendous cloud networking expertise and presents technical and operational challenges far beyond game design itself. With the growing player demand for cross-platform multiplayer games, Unity Gaming Services reduces the barrier to entry for developers to launch more multiplayer games that collectively will expand the size of the industry, and titles available for play,” said Ingrid Lestiyo, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Operate Solutions, Unity.

Dutch gambling regulator Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) has announced that it will conduct a round of checks on land-based slots during this month and the next. It will inspect machines throughout the country to check they comply with new registration requirements.

As of October 1, when the Netherlands’ new licensed online gambling market launched, land-based slot machines must record players’ visiting frequency. Rules were already in force requiring slots to record data on excessive play, a requirement introduced in April.

“The new registration obligations are an important condition for analysing player behaviour. The law not only legalises the online gambling market, but also imposes new requirements on country-specific providers in the field of addiction prevention and advertising,” KSA said.

Innovative live casino provider launches major recruitment drive as it looks to add more than one hundred game presenters to its fast-growing team in Malta

Stakelogic Live, the live casino division of popular online casino content provider, Stakelogic, has kick-started a massive recruitment drive in Malta where it is looking to add more than 100 game presenters to its fast-growing team.

Stakelogic announced the launch of its live casino arm earlier in the year, and now it is scaling the business with more tables and more highly trained dealers as part of efforts to become the number one live casino content provider in the market.

All Stakelogic Live games have been designed and developed in-house and are streamed from a state-of-the-art studio in Birkirkara, Malta, which also includes high-definition cameras, powerful microphones and the latest broadcast technologies to deliver a superior player experience.

Stakelogic Live currently offers multiple tables across roulette, blackjack, game shows and baccarat with plans to rapidly scale its operation over the coming months. Each table is set against a glamourous and opulent background and is run by a highly trained dealer.

Dealers host the game and interact with players to create an authentic, real-world casino environment but with the convenience of online play. Stakelogic Live is calling on game presenters interested in joining its team to get in touch.

The launch of the recruitment comes shortly after Stakelogic Live debuted a brand-new corporate website as part of wider efforts to capture the company’s transition from a B2B slot studio to a provider of casino content for all stakeholders including players.

Anthony Sammut, Head of Stakelogic Live, said: “This is a massive recruitment drive and showcases our commitment to the live casino vertical where we plan to take the market by storm in the exact same way as we have done with our modern video slot and classic slot games.

“We believe that the quality of our game presenters is a major factor in what sets our live casino content apart from our rivals and that is why we are looking to work with the absolute best dealers in the business. If you think you fit the bill, then please do get in touch.”
