Digital gaming solutions provider Gamewise, recently launched by US hospitality firm Delaware North and Belgian gaming and sports betting partner GAMING1, has appointed John Worthington as General Manager.
Worthington brings a decade of operating and leadership experience in digital gaming to Gamewise. Most recently, he served as Senior Director of igaming and sports operations for Parx Casino near Philadelphia.
Prior to that he was vice president of operations for Penn Interactive, leading the creation and development of a new online gaming venture for Penn National Gaming.
Based in downtown Miami, where Gamewise is establishing its headquarters, Worthington joins the firm as it begins to use GAMING1’s proprietary sports betting and casino platform and product technologies to deliver turnkey digital gaming solutions to licensed operators in North America.
Delaware North will also offer its mobile igaming brand, Betly.com, exclusively through the partnership in new markets where it operates land-based casinos.
Luisa Woods, VP of Marketing for Delaware North’s gaming division, commented: “John Worthington has the depth of expertise and experience to accelerate the growth of Gamewise and launch and manage its operations both for Delaware North and for clients who seek access to a turnkey solution.
“Both Delaware North and GAMING1 are thrilled John has joined this venture to deliver a new kind of sports betting and igaming solution that operators are actively seeking.”
Said Worthington: “I’m very excited to join Gamewise and be a part of something very special that Delaware North and GAMING1 have conceived that fills a gap in the online gaming market. I think a lot of operators are going to see the benefits of this model so they can invest in their own brand and still be able to focus on their core business.”
