Reading Time: 2 minutes


Parimatch Russia (a franchise-based partner of Parimatch Tech) has announced its latest move as it eyes further rapid expansion across the CIS and Eastern European (CEE) Regions, with the appointment of Dmitry Sergeev.

Formerly CEO of Parimatch CIS, Sergeev will be tasked with developing the brand in Russia, as well as taking charge of Parimatch Tech’s franchise implementation as Parimatch Russia separates from Parimatch CIS to develop independently, effective at the start of next year.

As part of its separation, Sergeev will also take charge of Parimatch Russia’s expansion across the CEE region based on local betting licences.

Parimatch CIS will now be headed by Yuliya Leshkova, current Deputy CEO Parimatch Belarus, a key veteran of the company for almost a decade, with her appointment following a track record of consistent outstanding quarterly growth across the Belarusian market.

Despite the changes, no additional structural transformations of the Russian based arm of the company are expected to be announced.

Led by its current CEO Ruslan Medved, Parimatch Russia will aim to continue to target its recent legacy of outstanding growth across multiple sectors. More specific development plans for the Eastern European regions will be announced later next year.

Commenting on his appointment, Dmitry Sergeev, who will be responsible for the development of Russia and new regions in Eastern Europe, said:

“Russia represents a huge potential for future growth, and our continued expansion across the region increasingly demands more and more from each of us on the team, which I’m delighted to be leading.

“Our franchise-based development in the Eastern Europe is a new direction and will prove a highly ambitious challenge massive that both myself and our team will relish. Always dedicated to delivering the best, we will do our utmost to deliver upon the expectations of our shareholders and raise brand awareness in Europe.

“I appreciate the cooperation on the part of the holding and stand proud of the achievements we have earned together. Each of our CIS regional markets have evolved into a strong business unit demonstrating great financial performance and exponential growth. I wish all the best to Yuliya in her new role and will support and help her in every way possible.”

Already considered an established figure at Parimatch, Sergeev was appointed to Parimatch CIS in May 2020 as part of the brand’s business development ambitions across its core markets – with his leadership proving integral to the company’s closing of 2021 with its key goals met.

Under Sergeev’s leadership, Parimatch CIS has recorded exponential growth across its core markets, while simultaneously tripling the base of active players across all CIS regions where the brand is live.

With extensive experience across marketing, business development, and commercial growth, Sergeev was the founder of “Championat” in 2005, which is now considered one of the major sports media platforms across Russia and the CIS region.

Between 2016 and 2019 Sergeev played a crucial role in establishing Parimatch as the first international betting player on the Russian market, having previously served as CEO for bwin Russia. In 2019 and 2020 Dmitry Sergeev was ranked among the leading top managers in the Top 1000 Russian Managers, a rating organised by the Association of Managers and Kommersant Publishing House.

Recipient of multiple additional accolades, the international Bispo Awards presented awarded Sergeev Discovery of the Year award for his work with Parimatch CIS in 2020, and later that year MarSpo Awards rated him one of the top 100 sports industry managers. In 2021 Sport Business Awards acknowledged him as Manager of the Year.

Popular studio’s classic and video slots now available to operator’s players in Romania

Players at in Romania should strap themselves in for an online slot thrill ride like no other after the popular operator put pen to paper on a deal with tier-one developer, Stakelogic.

The partnership will see add Stakelogic content to its game lobby for the very first time. This includes the studio’s traditional classic slots as well as its big-action video slots. The integration has been facilitated by the leading aggregator, EveryMatrix.

Stakelogic has enjoyed a meteoric rise to the top of the charts with its slots that have been designed to put players on the edge of their seats with every spin – whether classic or video. In fact, the provider’s classic slots are some of the most entertaining in the market.

A sense of nostalgia is stirred through the instantly-recognisable fruit (melons, cherries, grapes, oranges, etc), BAR, 7 and Bell symbols that land on the reels. But the gameplay is levelled up through features such as Wilds, Multipliers and even Free Spins, providing a classic slot experience like no other.

Classic titles include Multi6Player, Multi Player, Bonus Runner, Runner Runner Megaways and Big Runner Deluxe.

If it’s explosive gameplay that players are looking for, that is what they will find in Stakelogic’s video slots. Titles such as Money Track, Treasures of Ra, Spartans vs Zombies Megaways, Greedy Fox and soon-to-launch Money Track 2 combine striking visuals, booming sound and monster bonuses to get the adrenaline flowing as the potential for a mega win builds.

Stakelogic is committed to being at the cutting edge of online casino game development, and this is evident in features such as Super Stake and Spin to Win, both of which are now available to players in Romania.

Super Stake allows players to effectively double their bet to increase the chance of a bonus triggering and insane win combinations landing, while Spin to Win combines RNG gameplay with live dealer for the first time. It sees players spin a live prize wheel for the chance to potentially win big.

Danila Dzehs, Senior Sales Manager at Stakelogic, said: “Our games have been designed to provide unrivalled levels of fun, excitement and entertainment, and players can now experience this for themselves for the first time. Our classic and video slots have hit the mark with players across Europe, and it will be no different in Romania.

This is another important partnership for us, adding a player-favourite operator to our impressive roster of customers. We now look forward to seeing players enjoy the max entertainment our games have allowed us to build our reputation on.”

Secaci Matei, Promotional Manager at, added: “The addition of Stakelogic allows us to turbo-charge our game lobby with content that gets pulses racing with every spin. Classic or video, the developer’s slots are proven with players across Europe and they will absolutely be a big hit with ours in Romania.”
