UnPhiltered: The iGaming Winners and Losers of 2020
It is fair to say that our Phil Pearson is an outspoken personality in the iGaming industry, and has a bit of a feisty reputation – (especially on LinkedIn). In an industry that is sometimes a bit bland, we support such remarks because this can generate change or bring the reality around certain stories to attention.
One such story from 2020 was the takeover of NetEnt by Evolution Gaming and the loss of 300 jobs at NetEnt close to the Christmas period. From the official channels of the companies, this was an amicable and beneficial takeover. However, in reality, it was much more controversial.
In the podcast (watch the full podcast here), Phil goes on to discuss the following items with host Pierre Lindh:
- The winners and losers in the iGaming industry in 2020
- The rise and fall of NetEnt
- iGaming and the Covid-19 pandemic
