Future Anthem, the pioneering AI and data science powerhouse, has continued its expansion plans with the double hire of Julie Haddon and Ian Tibot.

Haddon joins Future Anthem as a non-executive member of the Board of Directors, bringing substantial experience having worked in top-level management at a host of world-renowned US companies.

She most recently served as Senior Vice President, Global Brand and Consumer Marketing at the National Football League (NFL). In addition to her five years at the NFL, Haddon has held high-level positions and consulting stints at PayPal, Twitter, eBay, DreamWorks, SoFi and Zynga.

Haddon strengthens the Future Anthem board that includes founder and CEO Leigh Nissim and non-executive Oliver Hansard, former Dunnhumby and Liberty Global executive.

“This is an exciting time to be part of a fast-growing AI and data business,” said Haddon. “Future Anthem is built on firm foundations with a standout executive team and is on an impressive growth trajectory having eclipsed many business milestones. I look forward to helping Leigh and the team double down on that rapid progress to help Future Anthem scale as it enters North America”

Also joining Future Anthem is Ian Tibot, who moves into the role of Chief Product Officer. He arrives with notable pedigree, having built a strong reputation at William Hill, where he spent nine years.

At William Hill Tibot was responsible for the bookmaker’s sportsbook platform as Head of Product and previously international product development for gaming and sports, working across multiple regulated markets, leading over 100 team members in three European locations.

“The combination of Future Anthem’s achievements to date, alongside its vision and future ambitions made it an easy decision to join,” said Tibot. “Future Anthem’s must-have, market-leading solutions will allow us to shake up the sports vertical and capitalise on the success in gaming.”

Future Anthem CEO Nissim said: “Bringing Julie and Ian into the business is a real statement of intent. They are transformational appointments that will enhance our ways of working and are key to realising our expansion plans following our recent investment.

“Julie’s invaluable Brand and Marketing leadership experience at blue-chip international technology, media and sports organisations will significantly accelerate our roll-out in North America and we now a have a fantastic, well-balanced board with hugely relevant knowledge in a number of key areas.

“Ian’s background fuels our momentum in sports betting – with his addition allowing Future Anthem to lead the charge in personalisation in this area, as we make additional R&D investment to capitalise on the opportunity in sport.

“We continue to proactively identify and bring in the best talent across the business. We have several hires planned, including a General Manager, Americas, and multiple roles in our product team. Meanwhile, our rolling intern programme goes from strength to strength.”

The appointments come just weeks after Future Anthem closed a Series A round of financing led by Bettor Capital. The funding allows the company to build continued momentum across existing products and customers, establish a US-based headquarters, and build a local team of sales, product, data, and delivery specialists to service the rapidly expanding North and Latin American markets.

The funding will also allow Future Anthem to significantly scale its machine learning models and AI products, expand its leadership position in online casino, and expand further into sports betting and other verticals.

BINGOTON: PADDY POWER PRESENTS A DRAMA…WITH BALLS

Published

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Mischievous betting brand Paddy Power presents an eyebrow raising ‘drama with balls’ after teaming up with creative agency Octagon for their latest ad campaign. 

“Bingoton” was formally rolled out in a fashion befitting the brand’s proverbial bingo debutante today (23rd September).  

Written and art directed by Jonny Watson, Dan Harrison and Neil Richardson of Octagon UK, and directed by Jim Gilchrist of Outsider, the 30-second TVC will get its first showing on ITV this evening during Coronation Street.  

The commercial takes viewers back to the early 19th century, with Miss Bingoton and her lady-in-waiting assessing a selection of ‘gentlemen callers’, cleverly creating a humorous parallel with the perils of modern-day dating.  

According to Josh Green, Executive Director at Octagon, this was the ideal comical conduit to convey the Paddy Power Bingoproposition:  

“In the simplest terms, bingo is drama with balls. That’s how the idea of Bingoton was born.” 

Tom Muldowney, Head of Gaming Marketing with Paddy Power adds:   

“We wanted to make a ballsy ad and Miss Bingoton felt like the perfect leading lady to convey our ‘more chances’ message. That’s with the exception of the Suitor who sent her (Charles) Dickens pix. He remains on the cutting room floor.”    

The advert opens with stunning views of high society types gathering at the palatial grounds of Bingoton Manor. Centre stage is Miss Bingoton, who is joined by her lady-in-waiting and Master of Ceremonies, all of whom eagerly anticipate a parade of potential suitors for her viewing pleasure.   

Suitor Number 10 gets the (bingo) balls rolling. But he’s quickly dismissed by Miss Bingoton who instructs her footmen to “swipe left” on her behalf.   

  Suitor Number 3 is quickly dispatched in an equally decisive manner, having been judged by Miss B to be “catfishing again” after she takes in his dated and unrecognizable profile painting.  

Trying his luck next is Suitor Number 66, a handsome gentleman from Essex who only has eyes for his own reflection.   

“The only way is EXIT,” she giggles under her breath to her lady-in-waiting.  

Paddy Power’s latest campaign comes with all the easter eggs punters have come to expect from the mischievous brand, who manages to marry drama (and balls) to make it a perfect match.

Turbo Mode in the Game ‘Mines’ is On – Fasten the Seat Belts

Published

on

Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Classics are eternal, but classics with new improvements are captivating. One of the first
Turbo games has undergone visual and functional changes and has transformed into one
more game Turbo Mines.

The Head of Product at Turbo Games says:

“Visually, this is the successor to the super hit of our classic Mines. We are a young
progressive team that improves our product regularly, but not just observes what works
well. There is no limit to perfection, especially when you can change quickly and
qualitatively to open an even wider potential of Turbo hit.”

What does it mean for the players?

The rules remain the same as in Mines, but some additional features modify the perception
of the interface and the game pace.

Firstly, it is possible to change the game field size: to 3*3, 5*5, 7*7, and 9*9. Such
modification gives a player a chance to work on their strategy and choose the risk rate. So
to say, every round can be absolutely different from all points of view.

Secondly, those players who enjoy speed can experience it in Turbo Mines too. Such a
function enables a player to choose the same pattern for opening the blocks for many
rounds in a row. If a player sticks to the strategy that they believe in, they will win for sure
because dripping water wears away a stone not with its strength but with its constancy.
But there is no need to wait, do it in Turbo mode with Turbo Mines.
