News UK Betting and Gaming Director Steps Down

News UK betting and gaming MD, Simon Collins has decided to step down after less than two years in the role.

Collins co-founded Cashcade in 2001, and later developed the bingo site and flagship brand FoxyBingo, which was sold for £96 m ($123.9 m) in 2009 to PartyGaming.

He co-founded Gaming Realms in 2018, which focuses on offering mobile real-money gaming opportunities.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at News UK,” said Collins. “It’s been a pleasure to work with such a talented team to develop some of the most popular gaming products in the UK environment – from Dream Team to Sun Bingo. That said, my roots – and my heart – lay in the start up space, and the lure of the new opportunities there was just too strong.”

“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Simon for his hard work and entrepreneurialism over the last year,” Scott Taunton, CEO of Wireless’s parent company said: “Simon has led the Betting & Gaming team during an important phase, focusing on new product development alongside driving strong revenues in this space.”
