Hot Five

Gender pay gap revealed, moving on from Sparcade to WorldWinner, and Gameloft's ads strategy

Gender pay gap revealed, moving on from Sparcade to WorldWinner, and Gameloft's ads strategy

One of the last week’s biggest stories in the industry at large has been the gender pay gap reveal from UK-based games companies.

Firms with more than 250 staff were required to reveal the pay gap between male and female employees or face a potential fine. Results showed an alarming disparity with 78 per cent of companies paying men more than women, according to the BBC, with none of the games companies we looked at paying women more than men on average.

Second on our Hot Five was our chat with GSN Games’ SVP and GM Jeremy Shea about competitive mobile gaming network WorldWinner and how its steady rise to success was helped, in part, by lessons learnt from Sparcade's cancellation.

Advertising solutions, illegal gambling and Clash Royale

Elsewhere, we caught up with Gameloft VP for advertising and brand partnerships Alexandre Tan to chat about how Gameloft Advertising Solutions division generated €37 million ($46 million) in 2017.

Also on our Hot Five was the US federal appeals court ruling that Big Fish Casino constituted “illegal gambling”, and how Supercell’s Clash Royale League is shaping up.
