Mark Frissora to lead search for new AGA headReading Time: 1 minute

Mark Frissora, the chief of the casino major Caesars Entertainment, has been chosen as the lead of the committee that would find a new head of the American Gaming Association (AGA).

AGA’s long-serving CEO Geoff Freeman left the association in June. A committee was formed for finding a new long-term boss. The role was offered to Stacy Papadopoulos, the SVP and General Counsel of Industry Services for the AGA.  But she refused it saying she is not “pursuing the CEO job long-term” she said she is “honoured to help lead during this period of transition and every confidence the search committee will identify the right candidate.”

She was appointed as interim CEO of the association, but that is just until the permanent successor is named. Papadopoulos told media that she is “focused on working closely with the talented team at the AGA to drive our strategic priorities as well as capitalise on opportunities like the legalisation of sports betting across the US, supporting the search committee of the board as they move through the process of identifying our next CEO, and continuing to serve our members with excellence.”

Tim Wilmott, Chairman of the AGA’s board said, “The gaming industry is widely recognised as among the most popular of consumer entertainment experiences and we take seriously our role in providing this experience safely and responsibly.”

Buzz Bingo and Playtech launch groundbreaking platformReading Time: 4 minutes

 

Leading gambling technology specialist Playtech has partnered with Buzz Bingo to deliver a ground-breaking content delivery and CRM solution across both Bingo and Casino, integrating their award-winning IMS player management platform.

Playtech has collaborated closely with Buzz Bingo since the brand’s high-profile launch earlier this year, offering players a range of Bingo variants and a wide selection of Playtech Casino content. Backed by the industry-leading IMS platform, the solution includes a comprehensive CRM toolset, with Playtech’s new Engagement 360 platform giving Buzz Bingo the power to design and fully optimise end-to-end player journeys.

Additionally, integration with the Playtech Open Platform (POP) gives Buzz Bingo access to an exceptional range of original and third-party game content. With several major content providers on board from day one and many others launching soon, Buzz Bingo players can choose from one of the industry’s widest selections of Bingo variants and Casino slot games.

The next stage of the project is the synchronisation of Buzz Bingo’s retail and online offerings to create a true omni-channel experience, including a full retail player account base migration to IMS. The move will allow players to use their retail accounts to play online, and vice versa, using a single wallet for all channels, whilst also creating a single customer management and CRM activity view for Buzz Bingo.

A huge amount of work has gone into delivering a comprehensive ‘day one’ experience, including a rich third-party games offering, from both a Bingo and Casino perspective. With further technical enhancements to come and with a series of major third-party content providers already on board, we’re confident that this is the beginning of a long and fruitful relationship with Buzz Bingo’.

Chris Matthews, CEO at Buzz Bingo, adds: ‘It’s fantastic to see all the amazing work that has gone into this project come to fruition. Our collaboration with Playtech allows us to offer one of the widest selections of Bingo games and slots in the market, as well as delivering an enhanced player journey across our physical venues and online.

‘Delivering and implementing the new platform has been a major undertaking, but the commitment and professionalism of the Playtech team has made it a smooth experience – and we’re delighted with the results. The wider Buzz Bingo team and I are looking forward to continuing to work with Playtech as we take the platform to the next stage’.
