Leading online slots developer, Malta-based Raw iGaming, has appointed two new figures to its senior leadership team – in the form of Ricardo Ruiz and Henrik Fagerlund.

Mr Ruiz, formerly of Videoslots, joins as chief technology officer (CTO) after 10 years of industry experience, including most recently as CTO of the company, when he helped to launch the operator in several regulated markets. 

He also formerly held the position of CTO at both Native Sevilla and M-Bet Tanzania. 

Aside from his prior experience, he also brings a strong academic background in computer science, which he is expected to use to further develop and improve the architectural and technical foundation of the business.

Commenting on his appointment, he said: “I am super passionate about technology, gaming and product innovation and with RAW I get all my boxes checked.

“It’s such a great time to jump on board, with so much achieved already but still with everything in front of us. I look forward to building new technology, culture and a new team that’s going to disrupt the industry in the most spectacular way.”

Mr Fagerlund will serve as chief operating officer, in a position which will see him manage Raw’s reliability and industry standards. 

His prior experience includes a stint as managing director of Malta at NetEnt, till the company’s acquisition by Evolution. He was then appointed director of product innovation at the acquiring company. He has also served at GTech and Paf.

He reflected on his decision to join Raw, referring to a meeting with founder Tom Wood, where they discussed a new casino system – SuperSlice.

“When I met Tom and he showed me the SuperSlice concept and the other stuff he is cooking up I felt like real innovation was here and something I wanted to be a part of.

“Tom explained this is what Raw is about, shaking things up, innovating, and truly avoiding the sea of sameness,” he said.
