Gaming Intelligence Hot 50 2021
Niccolo De Masi
Chief executive officer
dMY Technology Group
Niccolo De Masi has masterminded the $1.5bn listing of Genius Sports Group, following a combination with Rush Street Interactive, which has quietly become the leading online casino operator in the US market.
De Masi’s entrance into the iGaming and sports betting market has been bold. Together with former Oracle and Accenture CFO Harry You, he forms a formidable team.
The chairman and former CEO of freeplay gaming company Glu Mobile has a keen eye for a deal, with over 30 M&A deals behind him. And he is far from done.
dMY Technology Group III raised $275m in November. While he has two years to find a target, he likes to strike while the iron is hot. And it most definitely is hot. Expect more from De Masi in 2021.
