Wizard Games, a subsidiary of NeoGames, has announced the appointment of Benedict McDonagh as Managing Director in a move to “take the studio to the next level”.

OneTouch is looking to drive forward its content capabilities, after confirming the appointment of Andre Villandberg as the group’s head of games.

Villandberg, who has a varied background as a professional poker player and online casino bonus hunter, has spent the last three years at Coingaming Group after initially joining the company as a casino manager.

He was subsequently promoted to head of casino, and is praised as playing a significant role in the rapid growth of Sportsbet.io by developing the sportsbook’s casino offering. Prior to joining Coingaming, Villandberg provided insight and advice in his job as gambling expert at Relax Gaming.

“Andre has impressed everyone at Coingaming with his drive and expertise and has been a big part of the company’s growth and success in recent years,” commented Petra Maria Poola, head of business development and operations at OneTouch.

“As mobile gaming continues to explode in popularity globally, Andre will be at the forefront of OneTouch’s efforts to serve players with on-the-go slots and table games of unparalleled quality.”

Based in Tallinn, Villandberg will be tasked with overseeing OneTouch’s content strategy as it continues to expand globally with a portfolio of mobile-first slots and table games.

Villandberg added: “OneTouch has been making waves in regulated markets worldwide thanks to a mobile-first games portfolio that is renowned for its premium quality.

“Having witnessed its rapid progress during the last three years I have spent with Coingaming, the chance to take a leading role in the delivery of innovative content is one that I highly relish.”
