iGaming platform provider and game content developer, Jogo Global, has announced the addition of Simon Collins as the company’s Executive Chairman and Patrick Southon as a Non-Executive Director.
Both Collins and Southon bring an unmatched entrepreneurial acumen in the online gaming sector. Their joint venture, Cashcade, gave rise to the leading UK online bingo brand, Foxy Bingo, and saw a successful sale for £96m in 2009.
Following this, the dynamic duo founded Gaming Realms, the company behind the successful mobile-centric content, Slingo, which ingeniously merges the gaming formats of slots and bingo.
Jogo Global provides a plethora of high-performing, bespoke fast games, encompassing a variety of genres from Crash content to Mines. Recently, Jogo has observed notable growth in the US land-based sector, with a heightened demand for the company’s technology and service solutions, reflecting its steady expansion in the iGaming industry.
