Pokerist dev KamaGames expands with new London office, hires Daniel Kashti and Sam Forrest

Russian social casino developer KamaGames is expanding.

Best known for its Pokerist game, which has been downloaded more than 80 million times, KamaGames has announced the opening of an office in London, UK.

As part of the move, the company has hired Daniel Kashti from PokerStars as chief marketing officer, while industry veteran Sam Forrest (ex-THQ, Jagex and Team17) joins as director of global PR.

Good for growth

"We are seeing significant and very rapid growth across the social gaming sector, in particular across the social casino space on mobile and so we felt it was the right time to really focus on growing the player-base across our portfolio of games with the setting up of a UK service company," commented Kashti.

"We have a number of releases in 2016 starting with 3D BlackJack in the next few weeks as well as the Pokerist's 6th birthday celebrations and so expect to hear more from KamaGames in the near future."
