Global Gaming has appointed Nigel Balcarres as the company’s new head of compliance for its expanding Malta operations. Balcarres has more than 30 years’ experience in the betting and gaming industry, where he has been involved in all aspects of jurisdictional solutions to create and maintain sustainable relationships with operators.

He joins Global Gaming from NetEnt, where he previously held the position of compliance officer for more than three years. He played a pivotal role in securing the company’s first UK licence, and was responsible for managing compliance with the jurisdiction, in addition for the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA), Curacao and its Asian operations.

Balcarres will be responsible for overseeing the group’s licensing applications, as well as preparing the future expansion plans for its leading B2C brand Ninja Casino and the company’s B2B operations.

"Nigel brings with him the experience we need to secure and successfully operate licences in new markets, along with the vital skills required for us to continue to offer innovative services that are fully compliant," said Mark Wadsworth, director of the group’s companies in Malta. “His understanding of gaming and regulatory frameworks around the world is of significant advantage for us, and we look forward to his contribution to the business.”
