April 18, 2017 | Sarah Blackburn

Pioneering online casino software developer Red Tiger Gaming has strengthened its management team by appointing former Paddy Power Betfair Director of Gaming, Gavin Hamilton, as its new Managing Director.

Hamilton has been tasked with spearheading the supplier’s ambitious expansion plans across regulated European markets, which includes applying for licences across the continent.

Hamilton, who will start in May, joins Red Tiger Gaming following a six-year stint at Paddy Power Betfair, where he held senior roles including Director of Gaming, Head of eGaming and several senior M&A positions in the operator’s corporate development team.

Before entering the online gambling sector, Hamilton qualified as a chartered accountant with KPMG and worked in corporate finance and venture capital in Dublin prior to joining Paddy Power in 2011.

Commenting on his appointment, Gavin Hamilton said: “I am delighted to be joining Red Tiger Gaming at such an exciting time for the business. The company has fiercely ambitious expansion plans across regulated European markets and I am thrilled to have been tasked with driving those efforts forwards.

The company has built a reputation for designing, developing and delivering innovative casino products that push the boundaries when it comes to theme, math, jackpots and bonusing. I am looking forward to working alongside such an impressive team.

Red Tiger has enjoyed great early success, but I believe it has only just scratched the surface of what it can achieve.”

Red Tiger Gaming is undoubtedly the fastest growing casino games company in the industry. From a standing start two years ago, the company has signed deals with most of the top 50 online casinos in Europe, many in Asia and has numerous new operators waiting to launch in Africa.

All of its games are available with innovative Daily Jackpots and Ceiling Jackpots, which pay out before set times of the day, or prior to a predetermined limit. The Red Tiger Smart Spins application provides in game targets and incentives that motivate players through and added layer of gamification.
