We’re all, no doubt, in the final stages of preparation for ICE 2023. Travel organised, meetings planned and comfy shoes bought – there’s only a few more days to go, so what better way to count down to the conference than by chatting to some of the industry about their plans.

In the spotlight for today’s ICE preview is Alice Timson, Head of Account Management at Realistic Games

Timson sat down with CasinoBeats to tell us why she believes the betting and gaming industry is now in a better position to innovate, before highlighting some of the slots that we can expect to see at Realistic Games’ stand in a few days time.

CasinoBeats: With the event returning to its full size and February slot following last year’s slightly muted April affair, what are you looking forward to most at this year’s ICE?

AT: ICE always provides an excellent opportunity to network and catch up with both new and existing partners, we’re also looking forward to showcasing our upcoming new product offering to a wider audience. 

Last year, Realistic underwent a transitional period during which we reviewed our potential content roadmap and made some changes as an organisation. This year mirroring the scaling back up of the event itself, we will be reintroducing ourselves with our new team members, innovative game styles and product features. ICE London is the perfect stage for this.

CasinoBeats: Do you think the industry is in better shape now because of the challenges previously faced?

AT: Within the industry, people have now become far more comfortable jumping on a call to work together which makes collaboration in a global industry much easier and in turn, naturally encourages innovation. 

This evolution of work practices has seen companies re-evaluating their spend at events like ICE with some scaling back and others seizing the gap caused by this to boost their presence. However, meeting new and existing partners in person will always be of value, in both the iGaming industry and beyond.

CasinoBeats: What do you intend to showcase at ICE London 2023?

AT: Realistic Games will be showcasing slots from our 2023 roadmap that will provide a clear understanding of the diversification we will be achieving when compared to how people may have considered us previously – testament to this is our most recent release, Chilli Master. 

In addition to our products, we will also be sharing our plans for expansion into new territories and markets, while bolstering those we are already prominent in. Reflecting our plans for expansion, we also have multiple new members of the team that we will be introducing to our partners during the event, so we will have much to shout about when we welcome visitors to South Gallery Room 23.
