Online Gambling Operator 888 Appoints New CEO

888 Holdings appoints deputy chairman Brian Mattingley as permanent chief executive.

Online gambling operator 888 put speculation to rest this week when it appointed deputy chairman and interim CEO Brian Mattingley as the company's new chief executive with immediate effect.

Mattingley Appointed

Mattingley had been deputy chairman since March 2006, and a member of the board since August 2005. He took over the position of interim CEO following the surprise departure of company stalwart Gigi Levy last April.

888 has enjoyed some exceptional results over the past year, something with chairman Richard Kilsby credited to Mattingley and his team. Kilsby said the renewed focus on core competencies had been instilled through the business, adding that 888 was in an excellent position to capitalise on upcoming opportunities - particularly in the United States.

New Platform and Big Wins

888Casino outdid all its competitors earlier this month when it launched a new platform which allows players to customise and personalise their user experience. Thanks to the new design, players can switch between their favorite and recent games with a simple click of their mouse. Games of interest can be viewed by using the filtering link.

Just over 20 different 888 online casino players won more than $100,000 in prizes last year, and nearly 1,900 won more than $10,000. Huge prizes were paid out on a diverse range of games, from online video slots with massive progressive jackpots to all the classic table and card games - including roulette and blackjack.

Last year's biggest payout came in February, when one lucky customer won $257,000 on Caribbean Poker. This game beat roulette for most valuable, rewarding 20 players with five-figure prizes during 2011. Roulette's biggest payout was $230k, while the biggest slot win was $220k.
