LeoVegas Group is making several changes to its Group Management with the aim to optimise work on driving the Company’s strategic agenda for sustainability and the ongoing journey of growth, with a further intensified focus on responsible gaming and LeoSafePlay.
New COO in Malta
Richard Woodbridge has been recruited as LeoVegas’ new Chief Operating Officer (COO) and will have overarching responsibility for operations at LeoVegas’ offices in Malta. Richard will assume his new role by 7 January 2019 at the latest and will be a member of LeoVegas’ Group Management.
“LeoVegas is the leading GameTech company in the industry, and I have a passion for working with fast-growing tech companies,” says Richard Woodbridge. “I am looking forward to being part of LeoVegas’ continued journey of growth and optimising LeoVegas’ operations, with sustainability as a guiding principle.”
Richard Woodbridge joins LeoVegas from his role as COO of Ellos Group, and prior to this he held a corresponding position at the fast-growing e-commerce company Nelly.com.
Gustaf Hagman, Group CEO, comments: “Richard’s background and personality are a perfect fit for LeoVegas as we continue to focus on growth and sustainability. Overarching responsibility for operations is growing increasingly important now that we have some 750 employees, of whom 400 are based in Malta. LeoVegas is a data-driven company in which we use a number of key metrics to further improve ourselves and increase our productivity. This has become even more crucial as we have begun acquiring companies and working with multiple brands. With his experience and capacity Richard will make a major contribution to our growth going forward.”
LeoVegas’ current COO, Marcus Nylén, will continue serving in that role in Malta through autumn 2018 until Richard takes office. Due to Marcus and Louise Nyléns relationship as closely related persons, Marcus will leave the Group Management when Richard joins to focus entirely on his role as head of LeoVegas’ global expansion.
New Deputy CEO
Louise Nylén will assume the newly created role of Deputy CEO of LeoVegas Mobile Gaming Group, stationed in Stockholm. Louise was formerly Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) of LeoVegas. In her role as Deputy CEO she will work side by side Group CEO Gustaf Hagman with strategic issues such as sustainability and value-creating projects, among other things. Louise will assume her new position in the Company today the 10th of July.
“In my new role as Deputy CEO I will have a broader platform to work from, which will enable me to promote sustainability, growth and value for the Company,” comments Louise Nylén. “I am very excited to have this trust and opportunity to continue contributing to LeoVegas’ rapid development.”
“Louise has been with LeoVegas and based in Malta since 2013, holding the position as CMO since 2015,” continues Gustaf Hagman, Group CEO of LeoVegas Mobile Gaming Group. “In that role she has built up a data-driven and effective market team that is responsible for LeoVegas’ customer acquisition and global brand-building. Much of the approach in this work can be used across a broader front in the Company. Louise has also played a key role in building our company culture and driving sustainability, and I look forward to work with Louise and all other employees to achieve our financial targets for 2020 of at least EUR 600m in revenue and at least EUR 100m in EBITDA.
Louise’s former role as CMO will be broken up into several roles in Malta and will thereby be phased out.
LeoSafePlay – new business unit for next generation responsible gaming system
Rikard Ljungman is leaving his position as Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) as well as LeoVegas’ Group Management to focus entirely on responsible gaming and LeoSafePlay. LeoSafePlay will be run as a separate business unit in order to create the best conditions for the next generation responsible gaming system based on machine learning. Richard Woodbridge will take over Rikard Ljungman’s CCO-related duties in Malta.
“Rikard was one of the initiative-takers behind LeoSafePlay, and with his strong product background, including as CPO for the software company Episerver, he has the exact right expertise to take the next step to make LeoVegas the leader in responsible gaming technology and strengthen our position as a GameTech company,” comments Gustaf Hagman, Group CEO.

Casino Hacks– the world’s first Casino Bonus & News TV!
New online casino affiliate combines the successes of MTV, Top Gear and Late-Night Talk Shows with casino games entertainment
Online casino fans now have the perfect platform for their interests in slot machines, blackjack, baccarat and roulette. Casino Hacks.comis launching the world’s first TV show for online casino players.
Targeting millions of online casino fans worldwide, and having already partnered with some of the major online casino operators and casino games suppliers, Swedish-owned Casino Hacks has been created by a tight team of former gaming operators, producers, marketing & SEO experts, including former executives at MTV, Mr Green, Bethard, Raketech, Pokerstars and Metal Casino who are also passionate online casino lovers.
Casino Hacks Founder Clas Dahlén was named ‘Sweden’s Best Marketer’ in 2014 when heading up Mr Green in Sweden, and is also the former Founder and Brand Strategist behind Metal Casino. The host of the show, Jonas Lutteman, who worked in the editing rooms of MTV in London will lead the entertainment and competitions in the CASINO HACKS show as well as manage Casino Hacks’ Twitch Program.
Even before the launch, Casino Hacks has already contracted major online casino operators and casino games suppliers to partner up on the affiliate platform and sponsor the TV show. It is a perfect platform to reach casino players and high rollers in a confined online casino games channel. Only a selection of online casinos will be partnered initially, as Casino Hacks only will work with the best online casinos offering the best casino bonuses as a trade off to a new, more beneficial, business model for the partnered online casino.
Clas Dahlén, the CEO, or ‘The Sales Guy’, as he would rather be referred to, says:
“Casino Hacks is here because we believe that online casino players, across the world deserve a higher standard of live entertainment. Looking for tips, hacks and great casinos and the best bonuses should not be like going through the Yellow Pages! We believe this part of the casino experience should reflect all the fun and action one can expect from an online casino today.
“It’s now my mission to market and sell this amazing website. I’ll be a sales-focused CEO who will introduce our outstanding service to casino players and make sure the content is entertaining. That is my full-time job for now!
“Coming from the operator side we felt it was time to do something new in the affiliate sector, creating new energy and with great design, broadcasting and all the fun entertainment that the online casino experience truly is about.
“The Show will reveal the latest online casino news, broadcasting casino reviews, new slots and interviews with interesting industry people such as the best Twitchers. The daily show will naturally run fun and rewarding competitions continuously.”
Casino Hacks is set for an international launch this week in Canada and New Zealand, followed by Australia, Iceland and six other territories in 2020.
Clas Dahlén describes their pioneering approach:
“Casino Hacks speaks out loud. We are the new kid on the block, and we don’t give a damn about our competitors’ conventional marketing or offers. Keeping our language real, trustworthy and staying true to our beliefs is something most people strive for. Few live up to it. Our members can count on us. As our brand platform describes, we are creative, honest and passionate in our communication with our members.
“We are Casino Hacks and we deliver winning Entertainment!”
AskGamblers to Divert €50,000 Through Catena Operations Ltd to Help Fight COVID-19
Out of the original sum of €66,900 raised during AskGamblers Charity Night back in January 2020, AskGamblers will be diverting €50,000 through Catena Media to help fight COVID-19. AskGamblers’s Charity Night took place in Belgrade, in January 2020, which is when we managed to raise €66,900 thanks to our dear partners who participated in the auction. With the situation the world is currently in, we have decided to divert €50,000 out of the original sum to UNICEF and, by doing so, help fight COVID-19. Although no amount of money is enough when health is involved, we do hope this donation will make at least a bit of a difference when it comes to fighting the coronavirus pandemic.
The money AskGamblers Charity event managed to raise is solely thanks to our casino partners who took part in the event, and now recognised the importance of our cause willing to contribute. Namely, Max Affiliates, Campeonbet Casino, SlotWolf Casino, Mr.Play Casino, Ivy Affiliates, EnergyCasino, Platincasino, Gunsbet Casino, BitStarz Casino, are the ones who made this all possible and we would once again like to thank them.
“We’re all aware of the fact that the battle between humanity and coronavirus pandemic is going to be a long journey, but we truly believe it is our responsibility to help protect the most vulnerable ones who are fighting this dangerous disease,” said Nikola Teofilovic, AskGamblers Vice President. “We have decided to divert €50,000 to support our local hospitals with the necessary resources to save lives in the fight against COVID-19.”
