Stakelogic appoints Richard Walker as head of live casino

Stakelogic has appointed industry veteran Richard Walker to the role of head of live casino.

Having over 25 years of experience in the industry, Walker has held roles at both operators and suppliers, having worked previously with Evolution Gaming, Rank Group, Ceasars Entertainment and Pragmatic Play.

Most recently he also worked with high profile gambling organisations as a consultant.

In his new role, he will be taking responsibility for studios, products, commercial content and operations within Stakelogic. He will be working alongside Anthony Sammut, head of studios, and Sanita Gabriel, head of operations.

Stephan van den Oetelaar, CEO at Stakelogic, said: “I am thrilled to welcome Richard to the team and for Stakelogic Live to benefit from his unrivalled experience and knowledge.”

“Stakelogic Live has achieved a great deal in a short space of time but under Richard’s leadership we will undoubtedly be able to hit our goal of becoming the number one provider of live casino content in markets across Europe and beyond.”

“I have been particularly impressed with Richard’s passion and dedication, and am looking forward to working with him closely over the coming months and years.”

On his new appointment, Walker stated: “I’m delighted to have joined a company with significant desire to grow and disrupt the live casino vertical. Stakelogic Live may be the new kid on the block but we are aiming to be amongst the best in the business.”

Stakelogic is set to roll out in a number of jurisdictions in 2022, having expanded into live casino and opening a studio in Birkikara, Malta late last year.

The company also received a licence from the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) earlier this month, which will allow it to operate in the Netherlands– a country that has gained significant traction since its regulated online gambling market opened in October last year.
