2 minutes read
Australian casino games developer ReelPlay has appointed its former chief commercial officer, David Johnson, as its new chief executive.

Johnson joined the business as chief commercial officer after successful periods in senior roles at Cryptologic, game design studio NextGen Gaming and B2B gaming supplier NYX Gaming.

ReelPlay’s former chief executive, Scott Smith, who joined the supplier alongside Johnson in 2018, remains with the business in a board and advisory capacity overseeing the ReelPlay group studios.

The supplier said it has experienced significant growth since both Johnson and Smith arrived, after the pair implemented the transition of the business from Chance Interactive to ReelPlay, as well as reaching a number of commercial milestones.

“I’m delighted to be given the opportunity to continue to drive the business forward as CEO,” said Johnson.

“With great credit to Scott, the founders and the team at ReelPlay HQ, the business is perfectly positioned to capitalise on the solid foundations we’ve placed over the last couple of years.

“We look forward to continuing to build on ReelPlay’s solid existing partnerships whilst focussing on expanding into new markets and verticals.”

ReelPlay games are now available to customers in New Jersey and Michigan via the company’s partnership with SG Digital.

In Europe, the supplier continues in core markets with distribution partners SG Digital, Relax Gaming Yggdrasil and Playzido, while a new licensing arm drives value from distributing ReelPlay content to partners.
