Newgioco, the betting technology supplier has appointed industry veteran, Kevin Slicker to a position which will see him lead its sports betting operations and business development plan.

In his new position, Slicker will be directing the US design and infrastructure of the supplier’s ELYS betting platform while also leading the Newgioco operations team build-out from his base in Oklahoma.

He will be working directly with developers in Europe to create a unique and land-based, US-facing sports betting solution for state lottery, casino, route operators and private operators.
