During his time as CEO, Maimon led the company to substantial global expansion. Currently, Aspire Global operates in 31 regulated markets around the world, including the US, UK, Netherlands, Denmark, Portugal, Spain, Ireland, Nigeria, Colombia and Mexico.
The company purchased game aggregator Pariplay in 2019 for $13.46m and later acquired BtoBet in 2020.
Maimon also oversaw the acquisition of NeoGames, an iLottery supplier. NeoGames acquired Aspire Global in the summer of 2022.
Maimon commented about the transaction in a social media post and focused on commending the company’s leadership team for its hard work during the transition period.
He said: “I want to take this opportunity and thank my team. It's us who did it. With hard work day and night! Also, our great board gave us the frame and guidance to do it. And of course, our partners that go with us a long way. From strength to strength.”
At the Global Gaming Awards 2022, NeoGames subsidiary Pariplay jointly won the Casino Product of the year award with Oryx Gaming, via its Fusion platform.
Before joining Aspire Global, Maimon worked as a Sales Manager for DSNR from 2008 to 2009. After leaving DSNR, he joined The Nation Traffic and served as its Sales Manager for the next four years.
In 2013, Maimon joined Aspire Global and took a position as the company’s CEO.
Under his leadership, Aspire Global’s Wizard Games has taken its content live in the newly regulated Ontario market. The company gained approval from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) and has worked with operators 888casino and BetMGM to release its games to players in the region.
Wizard Games has also achieved integration through provider and aggregator Pariplay, which is known for its Fusion platform.
