his is the second senior appointment made by Lottoland in recent weeks, following the recruitment of Glen Bullen as VP of the company's new B2B division, Lottoland Solutions.
Multani's online gaming career began in 1999 within 888's deposits teams before moving on to head up its fraud prevention and anti-money laundering processes over the following years. In 2011, he was promoted to VP of fraud and risk, and in March 2014, he became VP of risk management and regulatory operations that involved managing teams in New Jersey, Antigua and Gibraltar.
In his role as COO at Lottoland, Multani's primary responsibility will cover the fraud, payments, legal and compliance aspects of Lottoland's business and its operational performance. He will also be involved with the development of the technology strategy.
"Lottoland has achieved a great deal in a short space of time and opened up a new category of online gaming through an innovative approach to betting on lotteries," Multani said. "It has a great future ahead and I am really looking forward to helping to ensure that it remains at the top of this new fast-moving and exciting online gaming category."
"Lucky's vast experience and understanding of online gaming regulation will prove invaluable as we continue to quickly develop Lottoland, which is already the established market-leader in its field with 2 million registered customers in its first two years of operation," said Lottoland CEO Nigel Birrell.
