Slicker has spent the past decade as a consultant to sportsbooks, casinos, and daily fantasy sports providers. He currently serves as the sports betting consultant for the Arena Football League, and he’s working with US Tribes to help them prepare for sports betting legalization.
All in all, he brings more than 30 years of industry experience.
At Newgioco, Slicker will oversee the design and infrastructure of the company’s ELYS betting platform. He’ll take charge of the operations team build-out from his base in Oklahoma, the company said. Newgioco is based in New York.
“We are very pleased to have Kevin join our team in the US,” CEO Mike Ciavarella said in a statement. Kevin is a highly recognized expert in the US bookmaking industry. We further expect that having a true bookmaker as a part of the U.S. strategic operations plan combined with his extensive industry experience could be a significant advantage over our competition.”
The plan is for Slicker to work with Newgioco’s developers in Europe to build an online and land-based US sports betting platform for state lottery, casino and route operators, as well as private operators.
