Trafficology meets the managers of Campeon Gaming Partners: Theo Tsimpogiannis (Head of Operations), Antonis Voerakos (Head of Customer Retention & Lifecycle) and Amard Vila (Head of Design and Development), in a pleasant interview for October’s issue!

Amard Vila – Head of design and development:

How did you get into gaming and end up at Campeon Gaming?

I joined the industry of gaming by chance. I was looking for a job as a designer after I graduated and was recruited by a casino operator. I was fascinated with all the graphic work of casino games and its vibrant colors, so creating my first banners was fun and creative. Things started to snowball from there, working hard, my passion for design while meeting the right people, led me to the Campeon Gaming Partners co-founders.

What is your day-to-day role with the company?

My role revolves around design and development of brands, projects and technologies, from their concept creation to its foundations up to the daily operation. I run a team of designers, developers, partners and together with other departments such as marketing and affiliates, we provide users with unique designs, optimal usability, and enhanced gaming experience.

What would you like to see more of in the gaming industry?

I would like to see some innovation in the casino area, maybe using modern technologies such as AR/VR to make games more immersive. I’d also like to see enhanced slots with better graphics, animations, music and sounds to give the gaming experience a feel of a triple-A video game. In addition, providers could also add within slots multiplayer capabilities where friends may spin and bet together in the same session.

Describe the person you are. What do you get up to outside work? I like to have fun in creative ways and I like to learn new things. I’m also curious about how things work and how they can be improved. To recharge my batteries, I play PC games, hang out with friends, go to the gym, and travel to new places when I’m in the mood. Other than that you’ll normally find me on my couch watching TV and movies.

Antonis Voerakos – Head of retention and customer lifecycle

How did you get into gaming and end up at Campeon Gaming?

As a young man I was clueless about what I wanted to do for a living, and with my life in general. That, inevitably, led me to some experimentation and after switching career paths twice, I was given the opportunity to get my first marketing job at a casino-sportbook operator. From there, I had the pleasure to collaborate with some CGP colleagues on some online gaming projects, so as soon as the opportunity arose, I was happy to make my move and joined the team.

What is your day-to-day role with the company?

I am responsible for marketing and retention activities across our brands. Following a multi-brand strategy can be challenging at times. However, it’s always fun and rewarding. It gives us the flexibility to experiment with different marketing mixes, models and tactics.

What would you like to see more of in the gaming industry?

From a player’s perspective, I would love to see more transparency and less bureaucracy and complexity. Playing should more accessible and overall player access to information should be made easier. As a professional, I would love to see more meaningful product innovation and more of core differentiation.

Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you get up to outside work?

Well, outside my Elvis Presley impersonator side-job, I love spending time with my two baby boys. I also love music, psychology, fighting sports and RPG video games. And as you can tell, I like to add some humor here and there.

Theo Tsimpogiannis – Head of operations

How did you get into gaming and end up at Campeon Gaming?

My excitement about the online gaming industry was always there. Although I tried different industries throughout my business career, I realised that online gaming is the one that gives me thrills every single day. As I tend to say, in this industry everyone needs to have of mixture of three main ingredients: determination, effort and luck. These three brought me to where I am today.

What is your day-to-day role with the company?

As head of brand operations, my eyes are constantly on multiple areas within Campeon Gaming Partners. The target is pretty straightforward: maximise productivity and minimise operation costs while constantly working on improving our products. What makes this more exciting and at the same time more challenging is the fact that we have to do this effectively on multiple brands.

What would you like to see more of in the gaming industry?

I would like to see more esports team tournaments and cups. On sports it would be interesting to see in football or basketball where each player controls only one player within the game. It exists out there but not on a global scale like LoL (League of Legends) tournaments or Dota2. Also, I’m a huge fan of animations within slot games, so I’m eager to see more games with breathtaking graphics and iconic sound effects.

Describe what kind of person you are. What do you get up to outside work?

I like to feel fit, mentally as well as physically. I spend a lot of hours educating myself on new concepts about self-development and overall wellness. I also always enjoy time with friends and family (nowadays, with some social-distancing, of course).
