Previous Experience

The addition of Rotem to the executive ranks at IGT brings nearly 20 years of industry experience to the technology and solutions provider, some of which gained at 888 and bet365, where his responsibilities included strategic planning at board level and operations, as well as delivering growth and product optimizations.

Rotem’s most recent work as an independent consultant for an online sports betting company saw him spearhead the development and delivery of dozens of exclusive game titles for the company’s proprietary online gaming and jackpot platform.

The appointment of Rotem is the latest high-profile figure that joined the ranks at IGT, following in the footsteps of the appointment of bookmaking industry veteran Joe Asher as President of Sports Betting last month to help further propel IGT PlaySports across North American markets.

IGT also signed a strategic partnership deal with Puerto Rico-based WinIn brand that would see the company’s PlaySports power any future online and retail sportsbook operations of the brand.
