Live Roulette Specialist Authentic Gaming Welcomes Oliver Reid As New COO
Vast Experience In The Industry
Reid has over twenty years of experience in the industry, at different times holding senior positions at Asper Group and Evolution Gaming, where he was in charge of the opening of Vancouver and New Jersey studios, as well as of the company’s growth into both markets. Before reinforcing the management team of Authentic, he was Group Analytics Director at the Olympic Entertainment Group.
Reid’s role at Genting-owned AG…
… comes as a natural consequence of his rich career in the gaming industry. During the past two decades, he has been active in different sectors, bringing to AG plenty of experience in online, land-based, live dealer verticals, as well as in business intelligence and product development. As expected, the new Chief Operating Officer will secure the further enhancement of the customer onboarding process, high-class service, and expansion of the studio.
Commenting on Reid’s appointment, Jonas Delin, CEO of Authentic, said:
“I’m very pleased to bolster what is already an incredibly strong management team. Authentic Gaming has a “player first” mentality and this, coupled with Oliver’s 20 years’ experience in Land-Based and Online live table gaming operations, we will be ideally placed to further enhance, and optimise the overall player experience.”
Extensive Client Base
AG was created by LeoVegas, which sold the brand last October to the Genting Group for €15 million. Famous for the unique approach to the idea of live dealer entertainment, AG can brag of an impressive base of online operators including Betsson, Mr Green, and 1xBet. At the end of June, the company signed a deal with 888Holdings, meaning 888Casino players can take advantage of 24/7 Roulette, Grand Roulette, and Blaze Roulette streamed from the state-of-the-art Arena studio.
New COO, Reid, said:
“I’m excited to be returning to the live casino sector with Authentic Gaming. The company has a great team and has always found a way to differentiate and lead the market in creating the most authentic experience for retail to online play.
“Operators and players are appreciating the entertainment experience live casino has to offer and I’m looking forward to supporting the growth strategies of online gaming for all of our partners.”
