Caesars snaps up igaming executive Sunderland from BetMGM


Caesars Entertainment has appointed Matt Sunderland to the role of senior vice president of igaming.

Sunderland has more than 20 years experience in the online gaming industry, including his most recent role as vice president of gaming at BetMGM.

Before this, Sunderland was an igaming consultant for GVC – which is now known as Entain – and MGM Resorts. The two businesses partnered to create the US-facing online BetMGM joint venture.

“This is an exciting time to be in igaming and at Caesars Entertainment, and I am so pleased to join the Caesars team,” said Sunderland. “As the industry continues to grow, I’m looking forward to identifying new potential for our igaming business while continuing to bring top-notch service to our customers.”

Sunderland’s new role will take effect on 1 October.

“We’re thrilled to have Matt join the Caesars team,” said Eric Hession, president of Caesars Digital. “His deep experience and successful track record will be a tremendous asset as we continue to grow our igaming and sports betting business.”

“We’re looking forward to what we can accomplish together with Caesars Sportsbook and Casino.”
