NeoGames S.A subsidiary Wizard Games has appointed Benedict McDonagh as its new managing director, as the studio aims to turbo-charge its progress towards becoming one of the industry’s biggest names.

Benedict, who has 18 years’ experience in the online gambling industry, joins Wizard Games from Green Jade Group, the game development company he co-founded five years ago and at which he was CEO.

Having held roles previously with Mr Green, PokerStars and Betfair, McDonagh links up with Wizard Games as part of the management team headed by Pariplay’s MD, Adrian Bailey, as it continues to deliver the most value-driven iGaming experiences to operators.

Benedict takes the helm at Wizard Games at an important stage of the ambitious studio’s growth journey. As the latest senior hire, his appointment follows on from those of Simon Jagdhar as Director of Game Studio and Yoganand Aiyadurai as Director of Game Technology.

Commenting on the appointment, Adrian said: “Our studio division Wizard Games continues to make great strides in regulated markets all over the world and this progress is down to the quality of people we are able to bring into the business. Benedict’s vast industry experience will provide great benefits for Wizard Games and we believe he will be a superb addition to the team.”

On his part, Benedict remarked: “Wizard Games has ambitions to make a major splash in regulated markets around the world and I’m delighted to get the chance to be a part of that story. I aim to use all the know-how I have accumulated in my career to take the studio to the next level, so that we can make a real impact with operators and players globally.”
