Cashcade and Gaming Realms co-founder joins ambitious platform provider and content developer

 Jogo Global, a platform provider and casino content developer, has appointed industry veteran Simon Collins as the company’s new Chairman.

Jogo Global provides a wide range of products and services to the mobile, online and land based casino industry. The company’s offering includes gaming platforms, premium mobile, online and land based content as well as services including bespoke software development and a gamification platform.

The addition of Collins to its senior management team is a major coup for Jogo Global and signals the company’s strong ambitions to grow the business internationally.

Collins has a strong track record in building new gaming ventures and his unrivalled experience will be highly beneficial to Jogo Global. He co-founded Cashcade, the successful online bingo business behind the leading UK brand Foxy Bingo that was sold for £96m in 2009, as well as Gaming Realms, the developer of mobile focused content including Slingo, the hugely popular game that combines elements of slots and bingo.

Collins most recently served as Managing Director of Betting & Gaming at News UK, overseeing the organisation’s brands including fantasy football league Dream Team, Sun Bingo, and Sun Racing.

David Marcus, CEO of Jogo Global, said: “Bringing Simon’s superior expertise and wide range of contacts to Jogo Global is hugely important for the company’s future development and we couldn’t be happier.

We’re an ambitious young company and truly believe that our innovative and advanced products will drive business growth for the world’s leading operators. With Simon on board, we’re now ready to take the next step and push Jogo Global forward to new heights.”

Simon Collins, Chairman of Jogo Global, said: “I’ve been hugely impressed with the quality of Jogo Global’s products, as well as the company’s vision to bring positive changes to the casino industry.

“In my new role, I’m very much looking forward to supporting David and his team in building a successful business that is operational across all key gaming markets.”
