Expressing that live casino is “in my blood”, Marcelino comes into Digitain with over 10 years of experience within the land-based sector having worked at various Mayfair Casinos in London. 

Additionally, he has also worked in the online vertical for more than five years through numerous live casino operators and suppliers including Pragmatic Play and NetEnt

“Live casino is in my blood, and I am incredibly excited to join such a great company as Digitain shortly before the launch of this great, new product,” stated Marcelino. “I am surrounded by passion and talent and Yerevan is a vibrant capital city where the founder has built the best igaming office in the world.”

Built in-house by Digitain’s own development team, the firm has emphasised that its live casino division is an “exciting addition” to the company’s suite of content, with Marcelino noting its potential for scale is “enormous” and will be launched at ICE in April. 

The solidifying of its live casino sector follows on from Digitain’s appointment of Matthew Charlesworth as its Managing Director of its live division at the start of the year. 

On Marcelino’s hiring, Charlesworth commented: “As our live casino moves ever closer to a trading-ready position, we sought to bring on board someone with live casino passion and expertise combined with solid igaming commercial experience – and Jason ticks those boxes and many more. 

“We are truly delighted to welcome Jason to the Digitain live casino family.
