New York, NY, Oct. 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Newgioco Group, Inc. (“Newgioco” or the “Company”) (NWGI), a global gaming technology company providing fully integrated software solutions to regulated online and land-based sports betting and gaming operators, is pleased to announce the engagement of U.S. bookmaker Kevin Slicker to lead the Company’s U.S. sports betting operations and business development plan.
Kevin Slicker spent over 30 years in the sports betting industry and advisor in the U.S. sports betting market. For the past 10 years has been a consultant to sportsbooks, casinos, Daily Fantasy Sports providers and is currently working with several U.S. Tribes in preparation for the legalization of sports betting. In addition, he is the sports betting consultant for the Arena Football League, providing advice on strategy, marketing, partnerships and potential new revenue streams.
As product consultant to Newgioco, Kevin will direct the American design and infrastructure of our leading-edge ELYS betting platform and lead the Newgioco operations team build-out from his base in Oklahoma. He will work directly with our developers in Europe to seek to create a unique online and land-based U.S. facing sports betting solution for state lottery, casino and route operators, as well as private operators that will combine the broad expertise and history of our European roots with the unique nuances of American sports betting players.
“We are very pleased to have Kevin join our team in the U.S. Our strategic plan for developing our business in the rapidly growing regulated U.S. sports betting market considered each state’s unique set of rules, regulations and framework requiring a comprehensive multi-faceted team. Bringing Kevin on board should help enable Newgioco to execute on both our multi-pronged strategy and our reach throughout the extensive and dynamic U.S. sports betting market,” commented Newgioco CEO Michele (Mike) Ciavarella. “Kevin is a highly recognized expert in the U.S. bookmaking industry. We further expect that having a true bookmaker as a part of the U.S. strategic operations plan combined with his extensive industry experience could be a significant advantage over our competition.”
