Former founder of Grand Parade joins Senior Management team of free-to-play specialist

 

SportCaller, the free-to-play sports-game specialist, has hired former founder of Grand Parade, Andy Clerkson, to be the fast-growing company’s first chairman.

Clerkson founded leading content, design and technology agency Grand Parade in 2007 before selling to William Hill in 2016. Throughout 2018 he has been in New Jersey, helping William Hill expand into newly-regulated states in the US.

Prior to setting up Grand Parade, Clerkson published Maxim USA for Dennis Publishing, which became the largest mens’ magazine in the world, selling more than 2.5 million copies per month.

Having pioneered the model of a free-to-play jackpot games with Channel 4 and Sky Bet back in 2014, SportCaller has achieved outstanding growth in recent years.

It has significantly expanded its global footprint this year, working closely with GVC, Paddy Power Betfair and William Hill, and branching into 22 countries as diverse as Spain, France, Italy, Greece and the U.S., alongside a number of countries in Asia and Africa, with its easy-to-integrate product suite and contextual bet prompts.In a largely standardised market for sign-up promotions and bonuses, SportCaller are now offering a third way to market, allowing operators to acquire and retain repeat customers at a low cost but also to stay fully compliant within the tightening grip of global regulation.

Clerkson said: “The free-to-play market has exploded recently and SportCaller are driving the innovation in the sector, so it’s a great time to be joining as chairman.

“What is really exciting is the potential for further growth around the world, not least in the US following the repeal of PASPA.

“I look forward to working closely with Cillian and his team to continue developing the strategy, which is all about value creation for our partners and their players.”

SportCaller MD Cillian Barry added: “I’m thrilled that Andy is joining us. His experience as a founder, successfully steering Grand Parade from start-up to scale-up, is invaluable for us.

“I look forward to working with him on strategic direction, new product and the fun stuff like corporate governance as we extend our reach in different markets around the world.

“It’s been a particularly busy period for the company with the World Cup proving a huge success with unprecedented levels of engagement across our games.

“We have some really exciting plans in place for the next few months and are looking forward to bringing the most engaging free-to-play sports games to more players than ever before.”

Yggdrasil unearths another gem with Dwarf Mine
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Innovative gaming supplier Yggdrasil‘s latest casino slots gem, Dwarf Mine, tasks players to dig deep to discover hidden treasure and potentially massive wins.

Throughout the game players are accompanied by a determined dwarf digger who uses his tunnelling machine to uncover underground valuables.

His work is made simpler by drill-shaped Bonus symbols, which expand the reel set by revealing additional rows of symbols. Hitting three Bonus symbols during a single spin grows the reel set from 5×4 to 5×7 symbols and starts a Free Spins round with the enlarged reel set.

In addition to more ways to win, Bonus symbols can also unearth special collectible crystals. Filling any of the four collections starts a special Free Spins mode with the collected crystal added to the reels as super high pay symbols.

Jonas Strandman, Senior Product Strategist at Yggdrasil, said: “With Dwarf Mine we’re especially proud of the way we’ve managed to create a gameplay experience where the mechanics and visuals work in perfect synergy.

“Add to that the fact you can win more than 1000x your bet size from a single spin, we are sure we’ve got ourselves a game that will go down well with both casual players and seasoned slot fans.”

Dwarf Mine is built on proprietary HTML5 client framework, iSENSE2.0+, which allows for seamless gameplay on mobile and desktop. As with all Yggdrasil titles, the game comes complete with the collection of in-game promotional tools, BOOST®.
