Ulrik Bengtsson, the CEO at Betsson (one of the casinos with a lot of Mega Fortune winners in the past) came to a decision with its Board of Directors to leave the position as President & CEO with immediate effect.
The Board of Directors then appointed Pontus Lindwall (which is at the board of NetEnt as well – the maker of Mega Fortune) in his place for the interim period till a new CEO is appointed. During this time, Pontus Lindwall’s position as the Chairman will be taken up by Patrick Svensk, another Board member.
The Board also initiated the process of finding a new CEO right away. Jesper Svensson, CCO, BML Group, was appointed as the acting CEO of Betsson’s operational subsidiary which runs out of Malta in the mean time as well. Let’s hope their online casino business doesn’t suffer because of this.
Now Ulrik Bengtsson has joined William Hill and shortly after they put a hefty bid on public gambling operator MrGreen Casino.
