Red Tiger Gaming is emerging as one of the industry's most exciting new suppliers, with its rapid integrations, soaring client base and ability to crank out quality content winning it praise. Under new chief executive Gavin Hamilton plans are in place for an ambitious global expansion drive in 2018.
The casino supplier space has remained one of the most fluid in online gaming, with any developer capable of creating high quality content able to carve out a niche in the market. Despite this few, if any, have come close to breaking into the top tier of the sector to rub shoulders with the likes of Playtech, Microgaming and NetEnt.
This makes Red Tiger Gaming all the more intriguing. It was founded by Nick Maughan, fresh from the sale of his previous company Cayetano Gaming to Paddy Power, and is enjoying a beginning that few start-up CEOs would dare to dream of.
In three years its headcount has jumped from five employees to more than two hundred. Revenue grew by almost 800 per cent in 2017, and it expects to triple this sum in 2018. A recent deal with Ladbrokes Coral Group saw it tick off just about the only leading iGaming operator that was not yet a client. It aims to complete as many as 50 client integrations this year.
This is underpinned by some of the most innovative new titles in the industry. Games are developed and released at a dizzying rate, while clients can support revenue growth with the Smart Spins marketing application and daily jackpots feature.
Not bad for a business only just past its third birthday – and one without a chief executive. Founder Maughan has been the de-facto chief in all but name. He has now entrusted managing director Gavin Hamilton to take the business forward as group CEO.
