Online gambling software company EveryMatrix this week announced its first online casino games development investment in the United States with the opening of its first studio in the country.
Armadillo Studios will operate as part of EveryMatrix Group and will be based in the larger company’s US headquarters in Miami, Florida.
The young online casino studio will develop iGaming content based on the market-specific game logic and player preference in the US. Armadillo Studios will be managed by Razvan Haiduc, serving as its Chief Executive Officer, and David Stoveld, serving as its Chief Operations Officer.
EveryMatrix said that an extensive recruitment process for key roles in product development and design for its new studio is currently under way.
Mr. Haiduc joined the gambling software group in 2019 after working at iGaming content maker and provider iSoftBet for five years. He first became part of EveryMatrix’s payments division and has since occupied several management roles across the company.
As for Mr. Stoveld, he has an impressive track record in casino games production across leading companies in the field such as Scientific Games, NetEnt, Yggdrasil, and Kalamba Games.
The establishment of its new Miami-based game development studio will further help EveryMatrix in its effort to become a leading provider of software and content in the regulated US market.
Happy to Contribute to US Gaming Culture
Commenting on the launch of Armadillo Studios, EveryMatrix Group CEO Ebbe Groes said that they are more than happy to be able to contribute to the US gaming culture with a wide portfolio of titles that will be managed entirely by their team in Miami.
Mr. Groes went on to say that having Mr. Haiduc and Mr. Stoveld “brings us confidence that we can be a leading casino supplier in the US market by 2023.”
EveryMatrix President Americas Erik Nyman added that he has seen the need for American-focused online casino games for years and that he is happy EveryMatrix responds to that market’s call.
Mr. Haiduc said that the US iGaming market “holds a lot of promises” and that he is sure investing in that direction is the right move for them.
EveryMatrix first ventured in the US last year when it announced that it has applied for regulatory approval with the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement to offer its products in that state. In April, the company said that it has received Completed Application status from the local regulator and now awaits transactional waiver to enter its regulated market.
News about EveryMatrix launching a US-based and focused development studio emerged shortly after the company announced strategic investment into Swedish online casino content creator Lady Luck Games, which is said to list on NASDAQ First North Growth Market on June 23.
