Online and mobile casino software provider iSoftBet has continued the acceleration of its recruitment drive, unveiling Mark Claxton as its new head of games.

Coming complete with in excess of 17 years experience, the “slots enthusiast” is credited with creating “some of the industry’s best performing real-money and casual gaming titles,” for a variety of global brands.

Claxton joins iSoftBet from IGT, where he occupied the role of head of content for UK and European markets, before which he spent seven years at Ash Gaming and subsequently Playtech following its acquisition.

Of the new role, Claxton commented: “I’m delighted to join iSoftBet, a young and energetic company that has come a long way in a short space of time.

“The management team has huge growth ambitions due to the strength of its games, and the power of its game aggregation platform.

“I want to give our customers’ players an experience they won’t forget when they play our games and, judging by the road map we have in place, they won’t be disappointed.

“There is huge potential in the talent here at iSoftbet so watch this space for some amazing, innovative titles coming in the new year.”

In the new position Claxton is to “manage an expanding team of senior content developers and specialists,” as iSoftBet looks to build on a positive 2018 which saw a “huge increase” in year-on-year revenues.

Michael Probert, chief commercial officer, iSoftBet, added: “Mark is well known in the industry as one of the biggest talents in game design, development and delivery and we’re thrilled to have him here at iSoftBet.

“Like all of the content team here he is a slots player, and passionate about creating the best games for our customers across a wide variety of regulated markets. His input and guidance will be invaluable as we embark on our biggest year yet.”
