It's easy to see that Pragmatic Play is clearly a talented studio with some of the greatest online slots under its belt such as Day of Dead, Cash Elevator and the roughish John Hunter series.

Pragmatic Play has decided to expand its team for 2022 with a new chief operating officer named Irina Cornides. She has over a decade of experience in the iGaming industry and held the position of chief commercial officer for Asia at Gamesys.

Who is Pragmatic Play?

For those of you that haven't heard of the slot developer, Pragmatic Play is one of the leading developers within the iGaming industry releasing up to five new online slots each month. Alongside this, they also deliver live casino games and fantastic bingo games.

In addition to the companies successes, the company also devotes time and effort to helping communities near them with the studio donating €20K to the Blondie Association last November.

“Guide the company to new heights,” says Pragmatic Play

“We created this role as part of the next phase in our expansion journey and sought out Irina for her impressive growth track record,” says Julian Jarvis the chief executive officer at Pragmatic Play.
