KaFe Rocks CEO Simon Pilkington has stepped down as CEO and will leave his position before the end of 2022.

Pilkington has been CEO at KaFe Rocks for five years, and the company says he has taken KaFe Rocks forward with his leadership and contributions.

Pilkington said: “I’ve spoken often about my passion and love for KaFe Rocks, including as recently as the RocketFest Reunion in October and as I look back and reflect on my time here, it’s clear to me that this passion and love is as strong now as it ever was and I will remain the biggest supporter and cheerleader of the company from the outside.

“However, regardless of this passion, I’ve always believed that you’ve got to know when it’s the right time to let go, and I’ve always said from day one that when the right time comes for someone else to take this company forward, then I will stand out of the way because it’s the best thing for the company.

“It’s also the right time and the right thing to do for me – this role is extremely involved, and I’ve always endeavoured to give everything I can to make it a great place to work, but also a successful place of work too.”

Pilkington will fully vacate his position on December 31, and KaFe Rocks has begun to prepare for his departure by advertising for CEO applicants.

Bragg to utilise the power of affiliate marketing to access First Look Games’ network of over 800 publishers

The First Look Games platform is delighted to welcome power player, iGaming technology and content provider, Bragg Gaming. Bragg has engaged First Look Games for the purpose of affiliate and B2C game promotion for both its in-house and partner studios.

Bragg Gaming is a one-stop-shop for operators, offering technology solutions and support services as well as a packed portfolio of content from its owned and third-party providers.

The deal with First Look Games will allow the iGaming provider to distribute information and assets for the purpose of gaining B2C traction and visibility on game launches from its in-house studios, including Atomic Slot Lab and Indigo Magic, as well as selected powered by Bragg partners. All of whom gain access to more than 800 approved affiliates and publishers around the world.

As a First Look Games partner, Bragg Gaming can upload game sheets, logos, images, videos and even demo games for each of its slot titles to a dedicated library. These assets can then be downloaded by First Look Games-approved affiliates, either individually or in bulk.

Publishers use this information to create game reviews and other traffic-generating content about the studio and its game portfolio, which are then published across a combined global audience of more than 20 million players.

First Look Games puts the power in the studio’s hands, allowing it to manage all information and assets via its Studio Management Centre. Here, developers can highlight any operator exclusivity agreements and even add or remove jurisdictions for each game.

Bragg can also decide what information it shares with affiliates and when that information is made available to them. Compliance is ensured via a suite of tools, including a free age-gate for relevant markets and the automatic accuracy monitoring of published content.

Tom Galanis, Founder of First Look Games, said: “Bragg Gaming is a major iGaming content provider, and we’re thrilled to be helping to ramp up the promotion of games developed on its Remote Gaming Server via our network of 800+ approved publishers.

“Affiliates present a massive opportunity for studios to drive awareness of their titles among huge audiences of engaged online casino players around the world. First Look Games does much of the heavy lifting, allowing the likes of Bragg to engage this significant audience easily and cost-effectively.”

Niklas Mravlje, Director of Product Marketing at Bragg Gaming, added: “This is an important step for Bragg Studios and for our studio partners from the Powered by Bragg range, allowing us to ramp up the visibility of our rapidly expanding games portfolio to an even bigger audience.

“Competition for player attention is incredibly fierce among studios, and First Look Games will help us to be heard above the noise being made by our rivals and to drive awareness of the Bragg name, our collection of studios and the thrilling titles that we produce.”

Slots Temple Launches Real-Money Slots Tournaments

Slots Temple Launches Real-Money Slots Tournaments

Slots Temple is the only affiliate site offering tournaments for cash prizes in the UK

Leading free online slots platform and affiliate marketing site Slots Temple has begun offering paid-for slots tournaments to complement its existing range of free-to-play competitions with cash prizes.

Now, for small, affordable buy-ins, players can compete against each other to climb a live leaderboard based on wins,
consecutive wins/losses and hitting big win multipliers.

There will also be spot prizes for lower positions to ensure the excitement lasts right to the end of the tournament.

The paid-for tournaments will allow Slots Temple to offer bigger prize pools and deeper payout structures, but there is no obligation to buy in. Fans of free-to-play tournaments will still be able to enjoy the same range of free games boasting big cash prize pots for absolutely no outlay whatsoever.  

Slots Temple became the first UK affiliate marketing site to offer cash prizes for free tournaments last year, after it was awarded a license to do so by the UK Gambling Commission. With these competitions proving to be wildly popular, the new buy-in tournaments were the next logical step on the roadmap, says Fraser Linkleter, CMO at Slots Temple.

“Bigger prize pools add even more stickiness to the site and attract new players, which should swell the prize pools even further. So, it’s about adding an extra layer of excitement. But at our core, we remain the go-to destination for fun free slots play,” Linkleter said.

Slots Temple enables slot aficionados to try the latest and best slots content. The site has built a burgeoning community of slots players who can chat, leave reviews, and exchange opinions about their favourite games.
