Galaxsys, a games provider based in Armenia, has roped in experienced iGaming professional Gil Soffer as senior vice president of sales and business development. Soffer had held similar position at Skywind Group for three years, and before that in Pariplay (now part of NeoGames) and Playtech.

Galaxsys offers more than 15 titles including Fast Games such as Cash Show, Rocketon and Crash, and Skill Games such as Belote, Backgammon and Dominoes.

Soffer said on his appointment: “The developing teams are focused on continually improving both the range and variety of the in-house developed games to deliver a stream of fresh, entertaining, and engaging content to the partners and their customers.”

He added: “The market is turning to this kind of content as gamers, especially the new generations, are looking for exciting and thrilling experiences and entertainment that Galaxsys can offer. We intend to increase our capacity and produce one or two games per month. It is truly a turning point in Galaxsys’ short life span. I see our content adopted by all the major aggregators, platforms, and operators in all major markets, with me leading the company in product marketing, sales, and partner management. One thing is crystal clear to me; we have a great team and big ambitions. I will contribute my experience and industry knowledge and expect the same from the rest of my professional colleagues.”

French national lottery operator Française des Jeux (FDJ) has made a €1.26m donation to mark this year’s European Heritage Days.

Late last month, FDJ embarked on its fifth “Mission Patrimoine,” a scheme to raise money for protecting and restoring heritage sites.

Now, in the same vein, FDJ and French heritage foundation Fondation du Patrimoine have joined forces to help restore a piece of Parisian history.

The YMCA Paris, located at 14 Rue de Trévise, was inaugurated in 1893 and houses the world’s oldest basketball court.

In a bid to maintain this site, a registered historical monument “weakened by time,” FDJ and Fondation du Patrimoine have awarded the YMCA €1.26m.

“Contributing to the renovation of the YMCA site, weakened by time, and bringing it back to life is a source of great pride for FDJ, our Corporate Foundation and employees,” FDJ Chairman and CEO Stéphane Pallez said.

“The YMCA project allows us to combine our various societal commitments in the areas of heritage, sport and youth,” she added.

In August, FDJ launched the latest incarnation of its Mission Patrimoine. This involved a scratch card campaign and several Loto draws to raise money for Fondation du Patrimoine.

Célia Vérot, General Manager of Fondation du Patrimoine, said: “The YMCA Paris site proves that beyond its cultural or architectural interest, heritage can play a very useful social role.

“With the support of FDJ and the FDJ Foundation, Fondation du Patrimoine promotes the financing of heritage projects with an impact in terms of inclusion and integration.”
