MegaLotto announces Grant Williams as new CEO
iGaming veteran Grant Williams takes on the role of CEO of MegaLotto, launched later this year.
In January 2019, Optimizer Invest revealed that it had secured the premium domain Megalotto.com, with the goal of creating the world’s largest online lottery.
Since then, Optimizer has built up a new organization in Malta. As of April 1, Grant Williams will lead the organization when he takes the role of CEO of MegaLotto.
Grant Williams has great digital experience in a variety of industries, from both the corporate and startup sites, including the online gaming industry. Until recently, he was the Online Managing Director of William Hill, one of the UK’s largest iGaming companies. Williams holds an MBA from Imperial College Business School in London, UK.
Petter Moldenius, CEO of Optimizer Invest, comments: “We are pleased to welcome Grant Williams to our exciting new project and company – MegaLotto. We want to create a world-class interactive user experience for consumers online, and Grant is the perfect candidate to make it happen. He is known in our industry for his excellent achievements. With Grant on board, we can continue to create something unique and innovative in the market. ”
Grant Williams, future CEO of MegaLotto, comments: “I look forward to joining MegaLotto and getting the chance to work with the teams behind the Optimizer Invest and Gaming Innovation Group. There are great opportunities to create growth and innovation in this niche, and our goal is to build the world’s largest brand within online lottery games.
Our market is moving fast, and we are not here to deliver another product and testable ideas, but to explore ways to break new ground to develop the lottery experience, from start to final experience, all the way to the results.
Megalotto.com launched in the second half of 2019.
