Gaming content developer Quickspin has announced a strengthening of its Maltese office, with the Swedish firm bringing aboard former XCaliber commercial director Thomas Rhys Jones to head up the company’s account management team.

Following acquisition by Playtech in March 2016 Quickspin is striving to establish itself as “a leading development studio for real money and social casino gaming,” with Jones set to be charged with continuing to grow the organisations presence in regulated and emerging markets around the world.

Speaking of his new role, Jones commented: “I am excited by the new challenge. Quickspin has already established itself as one of the market’s top suppliers, and I’m looking forward to taking their business to the next level. It’s an exciting time for the firm, and I’m thrilled to be a part of it.”

Bringing in excess of a decade of account management experience within the casino industry, three years at XCaliber followed a year as general manager of Tivoli, in addition to two years as head of affiliate marketing at Cherry.

Jones, who will oversee Quickspin’s account management team, will be based at the slot supplier’s St Julian’s office, and will report directly to chief commercial officer Paul Myatt.

Welcoming Jones to the Quickspin team, Myatt added: “At Quickspin we are dedicated to attracting the best talent the industry can offer.

“We are delighted to have brought Thomas on board. His extensive experience, knowledge, and enthusiasm will ensure our clients receive an unmatched level of service.”

Recent moves have seen Quickspin release a number of new titles, the latest of which, Tiger’s Glory, intends to bring Ancient Rome’s Colosseum to life.

Speaking at the time of release, Daniel Lindberg, chief executive officer of Quickspin, stated: “We are delighted to unveil our latest slot, Tiger’s Glory. Its immersive setting and pulsating gameplay make it one of our most engaging titles to date.

“With an exciting and rewarding free spins mode, players must battle their way to big victories in the arena of the greats!”
