Jason Marcelino Joins Digitain’s Live Casino Leadership Team
Following the January appointment of Matthew Charlesworth as managing director of the new Live Casino, Digitain has chosen its new director of commercial operations in the person of Jason Marcelino. Pragmatic Play’s former business development manager will use his expertise to prepare the launch of the fresh Live Casino platform during the International Casino Exhibition in London this April.
Marcelino to Bring His Land and Online Casino Experience to Digitain’s Table
The leading global provider of sports betting software has decided to add Jason Marcelino to its Live Casino leadership crew for a number of reasons. For starters, Marcelino’s decade-old experience in the brick-and-mortar gambling industry, with special emphasis on his work at premium London-based Mayfair casinos. Secondly, his know-how in the online casino field where he offered his expertise to a number of top-tier live casino suppliers and operators over the course of five years.
The list includes names like Pragmatic Play where Marcelino took the business development manager role for 17 months, NetEnt where he spent more than two years as a commercial partner and business development manager, or William Hill where he spent two years and three months as gaming operations and bonus executive as well as Live Casino operations executive.
Marcelino’s career in the gambling world kicked off as dealer/inspector for the Crockfords Club in 2012, followed by a similar position for Les Ambassadeurs Casino. Digitain’s new live casino commercial director also worked as a surveillance operator for Sunbourn Casino and fulfilled his duties as a sales director for Geofence Proximity, which gives him a tremendous advantage in his new position.
Marcelino himself feels the new job will fit him like a glove. During a brief statement, he expressed his excitement upon joining the “great company” just before the important launch of their fresh product. He also added that he felt grateful for the passionate and talented team he will be responsible for while calling Digitain’s growth potential “enormous”.
Digitain’s Live Casino Product, a Natural Addition to Their Rich Offerings
The company’s Live Casino platform was created by the company’s own development team and it is a fresh product that will be added to its regular offerings. The current list consists of more than 10,000 slots from the hottest developers, complete turnkey sportsbook solutions that use Artificial Intelligence and machine learning, and unparalleled sports betting content covering over 100 sports.
Digitain works with state-of-the-art tools to deliver the most lucrative experiences and gaming options, ranging from award-winning titles to person-to-person games of skill, poker, fast games, and virtual sports. The company’s new Live Casino product will take the company closer to a “trading-ready position”, as managing director Matthew Charlesworth referred to the process.
Digitain’s passion for innovation and desire to work has always been driving factors for the company’s growth. Accordingly, Marcelino’s love and passion for Live Casino helped him tick all the boxes and land the job.
Last November, Digitain obtained a license issued by the Malta Gaming Authority that granted it access to brand new markets as well as hundreds of fresh operators. The company also plans to introduce its fast games at the ICE event in London, while launching its much-anticipated Live Casino platform.
