3rd June 2021 - EveryMatrix is pleased to announce its first iGaming development investment in the United States. Armadillo Studios will be part of EveryMatrix Group and based at the company’s headquarters in Miami, Florida.
Armadillo Studios is set to develop online casino games based on the U.S. market-specific game logic and player preferences. Managed by Razvan Haiduc as Chief Executive Officer and David Stoveld as Chief Operations Officer, Armadillo Studios is currently starting an extensive recruitment process for key roles in product development and design.
Razvan Haiduc joined EveryMatrix’s payments division in 2019 after a 5-year stint in iSoftBet and has since occupied several management roles across EveryMatrix.
David Stoveld is a well-known casino games producer with an impressive track record in established companies such as Scientific Games, NetEnt, Yggdrasil and Kalamba Games.
Ebbe Groes, Group CEO of EveryMatrix, says: “We’re more than happy to contribute to U.S. gaming culture with a wide portfolio of casino games which will be managed entirely by our team in Miami. Having Razvan and Dave in the studio’s management team brings us confidence that we can be a leading casino supplier in the U.S. market by 2023.”
Erik Nyman, President Americas at EveryMatrix, says: “I have seen the need for American focused games for years, and I am happy that EveryMatrix responds to the market’s call. I am very excited that David Stoveld, who I worked with in the past will be the creative lead and Razvan managing these efforts. It is a great pleasure having them here in our U.S. Headquarters close to our customers.”
Razvan Haiduc, CEO of Armadillo Studios, adds: “The U.S. market holds a lot of promises, and I am sure that investing in this direction is the right move for us. Armadillo’s games will bring loads of excitement and entertainment to casino aficionados across states. Dave and I will be building the American Dream together along with Erik and the rest of the team at our U.S. headquarters in Miami later this summer.”
After launching Spearhead Studios and RGS Matrix in 2020 and investing in Lady Luck Games earlier this year, a company set to list on NASDAQ First North Growth Market on June 23, 2021, Armadillo Studios is EveryMatrix’s third significant investment in games development.
