Kimsey will be moving to BinkBet from BetBull, where he worked as Sportsbook Manager from September 2020 to July 2022.

Previously, Kimsey worked with financial trading company Risq, serving as Betting and Gaming Analyst from April 2017 to September 2020, and Product Lead from November 2018 to September 2020.

Kimsey said: “After a couple of incredible years with BetBull, I am hugely excited to announce that I will be joining BinkBet as the CEO: A new sports betting and gaming operator. Looking forward to a whole world of new challenges, experiences, and hopefully success!”

BinkBet is the latest in a long line of emerging new operators, a testament to the current strength and future potential of the gaming and sports betting industry. But, at the same time, a sign of potential overcrowding?

In June 2022, BetBull confirmed that it would cease all gambling operations by 3 July.

In a statement published on its website, BetBull disclosed the "difficult decision" before providing information on customer accounts, balance withdrawals and customer support details.

BetBull, which had a 22.5% stake in the company purchased by Wynn Resorts in October 2018, had focused on a new marketing campaign over the past year, and worked to promote the company's social gambling ethos.

It would seem, however, that these efforts were in vain. BetBull, which held a UK licence, has now ceased operations, with both the company’s Facebook and Twitter accounts now deactivated.
