In this role, she will be responsible for overseeing the day-to-day operations of the socially engaged casino games provider, and with ensuring that players, operators, streamers and game studios receive the “best possible experience” on the site.
Ms Tsyganova celebrated her appointment, saying: “Livespins will revolutionise the online gambling space by bringing shared socially-charged experiences to the market for the first time and I am honoured to be given the opportunity to be a part of what will undoubtedly be one of the industry’s success stories.
