Videoslots Welcomes Klas Winberg as CCO, Strengthening iGaming Expertise
Online casino operator Videoslots has bolstered its leadership team with the appointment of Klas Winberg as Chief Commercial Officer (CCO). With over two decades of experience in the iGaming sector, Winberg’s impressive career includes roles at renowned firms such as Betfair, Catena, Raketech, and Expekt.
Klas Winberg’s New Role
In his previous role as CEO of Play North, Winberg played a pivotal role in the company’s growth journey. He oversaw expansion efforts, implemented departmental structures, and spearheaded brand development initiatives. This appointment closely follows the announcement of Anna Komemi as Chief Operating Officer (COO) at Videoslots.
Ulle Skottling, Deputy CEO of Videoslots, expressed their enthusiasm, stating, “We are thrilled to have someone of such caliber join our ranks. His proven success in the iGaming industry will undoubtedly elevate our team’s strategic vision and drive future accomplishments even further.”
In response to his new role, Winberg added, “Videoslots is a company I have always had my eye on and followed with admiration in terms of being a leader in games offering, industry expertise, and customer engagement. I am very excited to join this team brimming with know-how and who has great and exciting plans for growth in the pipeline.”
Recent Developments and Partnerships
Videoslots has been actively expanding its reach and offerings in the iGaming market. This appointment follows the operator’s recent collaborations, including partnerships with Games Global and Mr. Vegas. Games Global will provide live casino content to the Mr. Vegas online casino platform through its studio, OnAir Entertainment, thereby enriching the gaming options available to players.
Regulatory Challenges and Compliance
It’s worth noting that Videoslots faced regulatory challenges in 2023. The Swedish Gambling Authority granted the operator a five-year extension, but imposed a SEK 9 million ($810,000) penalty due to anti-money laundering (AML) protocol failures. This decision followed a £2 million ($2.5 million) settlement with the UK’s Gambling Commission in June 2023, which addressed lapses in social responsibility and AML compliance.
Despite these challenges, Videoslots’ strategic appointments and partnerships indicate its commitment to maintaining a strong presence in the iGaming industry and addressing compliance issues proactively. With the addition of Klas Winberg as CCO, Videoslots aims to continue its growth trajectory and enhance player experiences.
