Parimatch Holding, the global betting and technology company, today announces that it has appointed Dmitry Sergeev as CEO of Parimatch’s newly created CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) division. Sergeev’s appointment forms part of Parimatch’s plans for further expansion in its main markets.

Sergeev will lead Parimatch’s CIS business with the support of a team of Parimatch professionals, to consolidate Parimatch’s position as the market leader in the CIS and deliver on Parimatch’s corporate strategy, as the business looks to deepen and broaden its technology offering and expertise.

Through this updated corporate structure, the focus will be on maximizing interaction between all company divisions across the Asian and Eastern European markets where the Parimatch brand is represented. With this new model of close collaboration, the Parimatch network will be more closely aligned through the sharing of best practice and successful initiatives across R&D, communications, digital, product development and other areas.

Sergeev joined Parimatch Russia* in 2019 as CEO. Under his management the company quadrupled its growth, and the team also carried out a number of outstanding brand activations. Sergeev is a well-known media manager with over 15 years of experience in marketing, business development and commerce. In 2005, he founded the sports portal “Championship”, which has become one of the largest sports media companies in Russia and the CIS.

From 2016 to 2019, Sergeev was also the CEO of bwin in Russia, responsible for establishing the company as the first international player in Russia. In 2019, he took one of the top spots in the Annual Top 1000 Russian Managers rating, compiled by the Association of Managers with the support of Kommersant Publishing House. At the end of 2019, Sergeev earned Parimatch a “Discovery of the Year” award at the international award “Bispo Awards”.

With Sergeev taking on the role of CEO of Parimatch CIS, Ruslan Medved, currently Deputy CEO of Parimatch Russia*, who joined the brand in April this year, will take on the position of Managing Director of Parimatch Russia.

Dmitry Sergeev, CEO of Parimatch CIS: “Many thanks to the entire Parimatch team in Russia. Together we have made a huge breakthrough, becoming one of the most prominent betting companies in the country. New challenges await, because our ambition to become one of the top three operators in the CIS region is now being put on the fast track!

As CEO of Parimatch CIS I will be focusing on strengthening brand presence, developing and implementing new technical solutions, and ensuring the company’s number one priority is innovation. We must stay one step ahead and set new trends to excite and entertain our customers.”

Sergey Portnov, CEO of Parimatch Holding: “Parimatch is defined as a business by its bold ambitions, and we are set on becoming the leading betting provider in all the markets in which we operate. The CIS is a key region for us, and I know from his success in heading up Parimatch Russia, that Dmitry will provide strong leadership for Parimatch CIS at what is a truly exciting time for the wider business – as we invest in our technology capabilities to deliver innovative and seamless experiences to our two million strong customer base.”

Spain’s National Commission to Combat the Manipulation of Sports Competitions and Betting Fraud (CONFAD) has published its action plan for 2020/2021, outlining 21 directives to safeguard the integrity of Spanish sports.

Supporting CONFAD directives, Spain’s Consumer Affairs Ministry states that the action plan will be implemented by the DGOJ and further coordinated with Spain’s National Sports Council, federal police force and Guardia Civil.

CONFAD and government counterparts will work together to improve all Spanish professional sports understanding of integrity threats and competition fraud related to betting. Initiatives include developing a training programme for athletes, coaches and further stakeholders on identifying integrity risks and criminal activities.

The action plan further aims to improve all core disciplines related to integrity monitoring and reporting of suspicious events, improving data transfer and cooperation frameworks between sports clubs, betting operators, government departments and police agencies.

As a final objective, CONFAD and its government counterparts will work to ensure that Spain’s legal framework is “accurately adjusted” to help prosecute sports integrity criminal cases.

BetConstruct has enhanced its live casino offering by launching Hi-Lo game. Hi-Lo is an adaptation of The Higher Lower, which was once a viral web game.

Hi-Lo is perhaps the most straightforward game within BetConstruct’s portfolio. However, the simplicity of the rules in no way diminishes the game’s appeal to players or decreases the profitability for operators.
