Bet.Works has announced that former Scientific Games executive Quinton Singleton has joined the US-based igaming and sportsbook technology platform supplier as chief operating officer.

Coming complete with in excess of 12 years of industry experience, in the new role Singleton is to be charged with managing the operations of Bet.Works with a focus on go-to-market strategy and operations, in addition to the delivery of the company’s omni-channel sports betting and igaming platform into existing and newly regulated jurisdictions across America.

David Wang, Bet.Works’ founder and chief executive officer, said of the new appointment: “Bet.Works is very pleased to have Quinton join our management team. He has been at the forefront of the US gaming industry for many years and significantly involved, specifically, in the legalisation and expansion of sports betting in the U.S.  

“Quinton’s experience will be tremendously valuable in accelerating the growth of Bet.Works into multiple existing and emerging regulated states.”  

Amongst previous executive experience across both operators and suppliers, is the development and implementation of Scientific Games’ strategic US sports betting roll out.

Furthermore, Singleton has also worked alongside legislators, regulators and trade associations to expand legalised sports wagering and igaming in the country, whilst also having professional experience as a certified public accountant and attorney, formerly with Deloitte and Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie.

Singleton added: “Bet.Works is building an industry leading team to complement its market-leading technology and targeted rapid US expansion. Obtaining the first dual certification of GLI 19 and 33 standards was a key step to establishing our readiness for the US market, and we are looking forward to going live with theScore in New Jersey in 2019.”

This follows Bet.Works appointing ex-Sportradar US deputy president Laila Mintas as chairwoman of the company’s Advisory Board, stating that it’s “uniquely positioned to capitalise on the growth of the US sports betting industry”.
