Ivo Doroteia Steps in as New CEO at Playbook Engineering
Playbook Engineering, a prominent global betting platform provider, has named Ivo Doroteia as its incoming CEO.
Bringing an extensive background in the iGaming sector, Doroteia previously served as CEO at Sportingtech and Betomall before assuming the role of Chief Strategy Officer at iGaming Platform in May 2022.
Doroteia’s appointment is set to augment Playbook’s standing as a significant international entity in the sportsbook and casino realms. The firm’s successful track record with top-tier operators and white labels has fostered a reliable platform, consistently delivering robust results and displaying adaptability. Over the years, Playbook has continued to advance, developing innovative features to remain compliant and competitive, all while ensuring optimal user experiences.
Playbook has established a solid foothold in the UK market, renowned for supplying top-tier operators with a robust platform characterized by efficient onboarding and minimal downtime. Moving forward, the company aims to augment its presence in the UK while exploring opportunities in new jurisdictions, with Latin America, specifically Brazil, and the US markets being key areas of interest.
Building on its successful trajectory in the UK, Playbook is poised to emerge as the leading platform provider in regulated markets. Anticipating regulatory changes in markets such as Brazil, Playbook has been actively collaborating with local authorities, gaming labs such as GLI, and operators for the past two years. Upon regulation, Playbook is prepared to extend its platform to the Brazilian market, bringing its considerable expertise and knowledge to the region. This strategic move aims to position Playbook as a licensed alternative to existing platform providers.

Additionally, he will participate in a panel discussion on June 15th, addressing global expectations for the Brazilian iGaming market.
