Collins joins Jogo after stepping down as managing director of betting and gaming at media giant News UK in February, a role in which he oversaw brands such as the Dream Team fantasy football league, Sun Bingo and Sun Racing.
At the time, Collins, who joined News UK in November 2019, said he was looking to pursue a new start-up opportunity.
As well as helping to launch Gaming Realms, Collins also co-founded founded Cashcade, the online bingo business behind the leading UK brand Foxy Bingo.
“I’ve been hugely impressed with the quality of Jogo Global’s products, as well as the company’s vision to bring positive changes to the casino industry,” Collins said. “In my new role, I’m very much looking forward to supporting the team in building a successful business that is operational across all key gaming markets.”
Jogo Global chief executive David Marcus added: “Bringing Simon’s superior expertise and wide range of contacts to Jogo Global is hugely important for the company’s future development and we couldn’t be happier.
“We’re an ambitious young company and truly believe that our innovative and advanced products will drive business growth for the world’s leading operators. With Simon on board, we’re now ready to take the next step and push Jogo Global forward to new heights.”
