Online slots developer Octoplay has appointed industry leader Gavin Hamilton as Chairman, pending regulatory approval.

Hamilton, former CEO of Red Tiger, returns to the B2B sector after his tenure at Evolution, post its acquisition of Netent in 2019, which included Red Tiger.

Octoplay CEO Carl Ejlertsson said: "As we embark on a transformative journey in 2024, Octoplay is poised for a pivotal year. Gavin’s invaluable experience in navigating the intricacies of scaling a business into diverse regulated markets will undoubtedly expedite our development."

Hamilton commented: "I am thrilled to be joining Octoplay as Chairman. I am impressed by what they have achieved in such a short period and am excited to be part of the delivery of the strategy going forward.”

Octoplay recently secured a supplier permit from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO). This permit allows Octoplay to access the Ontario market, enabling licensed operators in the jurisdiction to feature its suite of slot machine games.

Previously, Octoplay had obtained licences from regulatory bodies such as the Gambling Commission of Great Britain, the Malta Gaming Authority and the Swedish Gaming Authority.

Moreover, Octoplay's expansion efforts extend to the Romanian market, facilitated by a direct integration with Superbet, an operator in the region. The collaboration introduced a variety of online slot titles, including Pearly Shores and Star Kingdom, into Superbet's gaming portfolio.
