Quotes:

Number one quality a CEO needs to have to run a social casino app?

(10:40-11:03) “I would say that you need to be able to work with all sorts of people, all types of people. And, you need to mediate them, balance them, look for proper people to join the team, sometimes make hard decisions when you need to split ways with somebody. So I would say number one thing would be working with people. That’s how I see it.” 

What kind of changes do you think we can expect to see in the social casino space in the next few years? 

(33:00-33:48) “I would say, number one thing, and it sounds like a cliche but that’s inevitable, we will see more consolidation in the space, and this is actually in both social casino and casual games. Then I would say to be successful, down the line there should be more than one game offered to a player to keep this player and to monetize the business efficiently. So I would say companies will expand their offering, one or another way by developing, partnering with somebody, but just introducing more new products within this genre.”
