Reseller deal sees leading provider entrust its portfolio to an emerging force in retail and online gaming
RPM Gaming, the rising star of online and retail betting and gaming, has announced a major new deal with Design Works Gaming (DWG) to bolster its progressive portfolio, bringing the best games to market across global territories.
Under the terms of this global distribution agreement, RPM Gaming will help DWG broaden the distribution of its top-performing games and promotional tools, across international markets, both mature and emerging, with leading igaming platforms and operators. Leveraging RPM’s global contact portfolio, the deal promises to deliver significant value to both parties.
RPM Gaming is fronted by Richard Thorp, Peter Watson and Ben Rushall. The team’s collective experience in business development, strategy implementation and scale-up success has enabled them to deliver hundreds of gaming solutions to top-tier operators worldwide over the past 20 years.
With the confidence of its past successes propelling it forward, DWG has blazed into the online real-money gaming market this year. As a recognised leader in game development, DWG has supplied content to the likes of Novomatic, Aristocrat, IGT and Scientific Games. DWG has also developed several leading social casinos – offering hundreds of proprietary slots, scratchers and promotional tools to millions of players around the globe.
Richard Thorp, Director of RPM Gaming, said: “We’re thrilled to have signed this reseller partnership with DWG. I’ve known Andy for years and have been particularly impressed by the multi-faceted games his team have developed at DWG. Their product development is led by superior modelling and data science. In keeping with this innovative new relationship, we look forward to delivering some creative deal structures.”
Andy Harris, UK CEO of Design Works Gaming, said: “RPM’s combined gaming experience and understanding is second to none, not to mention their black book of global contacts. So, this reseller agreement was a no-brainer. Initially, we are approaching targets in Europe and South America where we’re already exploring some promising leads. We can’t wait to see how our games perform across markets which, in some cases, break new ground for our product portfolio.”
Skycity Appoints David Attenborough as Non-Executive Director
Skycity Entertainment Group has announced its intention to appoint former Tabcorp Managing Director and CEO David Attenborough as a non-executive director, pending regulatory approvals.
In a Friday morning filing, Skycity said Attenborough would join the Board of Directors in an advisory capacity with 1 March 2023 touted as his likely start date.
“David has extensive gambling industry and corporate governance and sustainability experience which will bring considerable expertise to the Skycity board,” Julian Cook, Chairman of Skycity, said.
Based in Sydney, Attenborough stepped down from his role at Tabcorp last year following the completion of a demerger from its lotteries business. He had led Tabcorp for 12 years, having taken on the top job in 2019.
888 Suspends VIP Activities in Middle East; CEO Steps Down
888 Holdings announced the departure of its chief executive on Monday, as it said it was suspending some VIP accounts in the Middle East pending the outcome of an internal compliance investigation.
Just weeks after announcing that chief financial officer Yariv Dafna had “mutually agreed” to step down from the business, 888 announced that CEO Itai Pazner is stepping down with immediate effect.
888 had said in January that Dafna was stepping down at the end of March, but the company has now said he will remain in his job until the end of the year.
Non-executive chair Lord Mendelsohn is assuming the position of executive chair on an interim basis while the company searches for a permanent CEO.
The news came alongside a separate statement in which the company said that an internal compliance review had revealed that “certain best practices” had not been followed in regard to “know your client” and anti-money laundering processes for 888 VIP customers in the Middle East region.
As a result, VIP activities in certain of its .com markets have been suspended pending the outcome of the investigation.
“While further internal investigations are underway, the board has taken the decision to suspend VIP customer accounts in the region, effective immediately. The board currently estimates that the impact is less than 3% of group revenues, should the suspensions remain in place,” 888 said.
888 said its current understanding is that the process deficiencies identified are isolated to the Middle East only.
Mendelsohn said: “The board and I take the group’s compliance responsibilities incredibly seriously. When we were alerted to issues with some of 888’s VIP customers, the board took decisive actions.
“We will be uncompromising in our approach to compliance as we build a strong and sustainable business.”
