Expanding upon an already strong gaming development team, Slingo has appointed games industry veteran Coray Seifert as its new director of product development. Seifert will be responsible for expanding the company’s online, mobile, console, and casino presence, as well as bringing one of the most recognizable casual games brands to new and emerging platforms.

Seifert said he is “very excited at the opportunity to work with the billion-dollar Slingo brand and do so across such a large range of platforms and devices. The opportunity to develop innovative content on a global scale is significant, and I am eager to begin working on achieving that vision.”

Most recently, Seifert was a designer and writer for THQ’s Kaos Studios – creators of critically acclaimed first-person shooters Homefront and Frontlines: Fuel of War – and has held a variety of key development positions within the casual, hardcore and social games sectors.

Seifert holds a degree in communication studies with a focus in film & television production from The College of New Jersey, and has taught game design at Bloomfield College and the Stevens Institute of Technology.

Established in 1996, Slingo, Inc. currently develops and licenses the intellectual property for the Slingo brand of games, to include casual and social games; casino slot machines and table games; lottery tickets and TV programming.
