EveryMatrix is thrilled to announce its first iGaming investment in the U.S. The Miami based Armadillo Studios will be part of the EveryMatrix group and will extend the company’s reach in the region’s online casino market.
Armadillo Studios is EveryMatrix’s third significant investment in games development, followed by the launch of Spearhead Studios and RGS Matrix in 2020 and investing in Lady Luck Games earlier this year.
The studio’s goal is to develop games based on the U.S. market-specific game logic and player preferences. Managed by Razvan Haiduc as Chief Executive Officer and David Stoveld as Chief Operations Officer, Armadillo Studios is currently starting an extensive recruitment process for key product development and design roles.
Razvan Haiduc joined EveryMatrix’s payment division in 2019, where he occupied several management roles in the company. Before joining EveryMatrix, he worked for five years under iSoftBet.
David Stoveld is a renowned casino games producer with an impressive track record working for established companies such as Scientific Games, NetEnt, Yggdrasil and Kalamba Games.
Ebbe Groes, Group CEO of EveryMatrix, comments: “We’re more than happy to contribute to U.S. 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 U.S. market by 2023.”
Erik Nyman, President Americas at EveryMatrix, says: “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 U.S. Headquarters close to our customers.”
Razvan Haiduc, CEO of Armadillo Studios, adds: “The U.S. 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 U.S. headquarters in Miami later this summer.”
