Ex-Rank Digital Dept Head Defects to Pragmatic Play

The world-leading online bingo, slots and casino game developer, Pragmatic Play, has announced a new senior member of staff in the form of Bhotesh Maheshwari.

39-year-old Maheshwari previously worked for Rank Digital where he was Head of Gaming Product, and his latest move will see him take on the role of Vice President of Commercial Strategy and Operations. He has held a variety of industry jobs over the past 15 years which should stand him in good stead for his latest venture, beginning his career with William Hill where he worked as a retail manager.

The new VP will work alongside a team of three executives based at the company’s Gibraltar office which serves gambling operators based in the UK, Portugal, Spain and Germany.

His key responsibilities as Vice President of Commercial Strategy and Operations include building closer partnerships with European gambling operators, overseeing commercial operations, and helping Pragmatic Play to expand its footprint in newly regulated territories around the world.

Pragmatic’s Chief Executive Officer, Julian Jarvis, says that Maheshwari’s “impressive industry experience” gained from his previous roles “bode very well for his future with us” while Bhotesh himself says that he’s looking forward to helping implement the company’s “hugely exciting expansion plans” within new product verticals and regulated regions.

Pragmatic Play was founded in 2015 and today it creates around five new slot games per month. Its multi-product portfolio also includes bingo games and live casino games.

The company launched its mobile-first bingo product at the beginning of 2018, and in April 2020, it launched its newest online bingo variant, Bingo Blast which is 3 to 4 times fast than the average 90-ball bingo game.

Last week, Pragmatic Play unveiled its latest live casino game, Mega Roulette, along with a brand-new video slot called Gates of Olympus.
