Playbook Fusion Appoints Jason Bradbury as Chief Product Officer

Playbook Fusion, the new studio spearheaded by Steve Rogers that combines the worlds of betting and video gaming, announced that Jason Bradbury will join its executive team as Chief Product Officer with immediate effect.

Industry Veteran Joins Playbook Fusion

Bradbury has over a decade of impressive experience in the gambling industry, with time spent at operator and supplier powerhouses including Entain/GVC, Light & Wonder, Inspired Entertainment, and ComeOn. As Chief Product Officer, he will play a key part in delivering Playbook Fusion’s ambitious product roadmap.

Bradbury’s remit will involve designing and overseeing the development of a new genre of content that will help operators offer a more engaging and persistent betting experience to their player base, especially those who already enjoy virtual sports, fantasy sports, and sports management titles. Each game will offer a deeper, more involved experience than current content in the market.

Playbook Fusion’s first game will be a football title, set to launch in early 2025, followed by games featuring other popular sports including cricket and basketball. This strategic rollout is aimed at capturing the interest of a diverse audience and establishing a strong foothold in the sports gaming market.

Strategic Leadership and Vision

Steve Rogers, Founder and CEO of Playbook Fusion, expressed his enthusiasm for Bradbury’s appointment: “Jason has a proven track record of driving product innovation and advancements at some of the biggest operators and suppliers in the industry, and his experience in launching products in the regulated betting markets is vital to our ambitious plans. Combining that experience with that of our Executive Creative Advisor, Santiago Jaramillo, from the video games industry, is going to develop some very unique concepts, particularly around gamification and persistence within our games.”

Rogers added, “He is perfectly placed to deliver our vision of combining betting and video gaming player attributes within our games, and I have full confidence in his abilities to design, develop, and deliver games and experiences that will revolutionize the industry.”

A Game-Changing Opportunity

Jason Bradbury, Chief Product Officer at Playbook Fusion, shared his excitement about joining the team: “I’m delighted to have the opportunity to work with Steve, Santiago and his impressive team to develop an innovative, never-before-seen product vertical that will bridge the gap between traditional sportsbook and video game players.”

“Our content will have mass market appeal to existing player bases, but it will absolutely help operators to engage with harder-to-reach Millennial and Gen Z audiences as well as the next generation of players. This is a game-changing concept, and I’m genuinely excited to join the team.”
