Stakelogic, a prominent online games developer, has named industry expert Edgars Isajevs as the new head of live casino. In his new role, Isajevs will be responsible for spearheading the development of live casino content at Stakelogic and overseeing the release of new games into the market. Additionally, he will join the Stakelogic management team, bringing with him over a decade of experience in the iGaming sector.

Isajevs previously held positions at major content developers, including Evolution Gaming, where he served as both operations manager and operations team lead for four-and-a-half years. He also worked as head of operations at Pragmatic Play and as chief operations officer at Winfinity. In light of his appointment, Isajevs expressed his enthusiasm for joining Stakelogic Live, citing the company as the most innovative game supplier in the industry.

Stakelogic CEO Stephan van den Oetelaar expressed his pleasure at Isajevs’ appointment, describing him as the ideal candidate for the role. According to van den Oetelaar, Isajevs’ passion for the industry and extensive knowledge of live casino operations make him a valuable addition to the management team.

Isajevs’ appointment comes amidst a series of other senior moves within the gambling sector at the start of the year. 888 recently appointed Ian Gallagher as its chief product officer, while Allwyn named Steve Parkinson as brand and marketing director for Allwyn UK. Meanwhile, Oskar Mühlbach stepped down from his role as CEO of Raketech, and Caroline Ackroyd is leaving her position as CFO of affiliate rival XLMedia. Additionally, several major operators have announced changes to their boards, including the addition of Michael Marchetti to the Light & Wonder board and the forthcoming departure of Richard Flint from the Flutter board.

Moreover, Brigid Simmonds is set to step down as chair of the Betting and Gaming Council in April, with current chief executive Michael Dugher taking on the role. These personnel changes reflect a period of transition and growth within the gambling industry.
