EveryMatrix has completed its debut igaming development investment in the United States courtesy of a deal with the Armadillo Studios game studio, which will be based at the company’s Miami headquarters.
Armadillo Studios plans to develop online casino games based on US market-specific game logic and player preferences.
Managed by CEO Razvan Haiduc and COO David Stoveld, the studio is currently embarking on an extensive recruitment process to fill key roles in product development and design.
Haiduc joined EveryMatrix’s payments division in 2019 after a five-year stint with iSoftBet and has since occupied several management roles across EveryMatrix.
Stoveld is a well-known casino games producer with an impressive track record in established companies such as Scientific Games, NetEnt, Yggdrasil and Kalamba Games.
Ebbe Groes, Group CEO of EveryMatrix, commented: “We’re more than happy to contribute to US gaming culture with a wide portfolio of casino games which will be managed entirely by our team in Miami. Having Razvan and Dave in the studio’s management team brings us confidence that we can be a leading casino supplier in the US market by 2023.”
Erik Nyman, President Americas at EveryMatrix, stated: “I have seen the need for American focused games for years, and I am happy that EveryMatrix responds to the market’s call. I am very excited that David Stoveld, who I worked with in the past will be the creative lead and Razvan managing these efforts. It is a great pleasure having them here in our US headquarters close to our customers.”
Haiduc added: “The US market holds a lot of promises, and I am sure that investing in this direction is the right move for us. Armadillo’s games will bring loads of excitement and entertainment to casino aficionados across states. Dave and I will be building the American Dream together along with Erik and the rest of the team at our US headquarters in Miami later this summer.”
After launching Spearhead Studios and RGS Matrix in 2020 and investing in Lady Luck Games earlier this year – a company set to list on NASDAQ First North Growth Market on June 23 2021 – Armadillo Studios represents EveryMatrix’s third significant investment in games development.
