Gaming Intelligence Hot 50
Nick Vuchev has become an industry legend after just five years in online gaming. One of those incredibly rare people whose name alone induces a smile on everyone’s face, he’s razor sharp, always noted for his kindness and has flown through the ranks.
Nick came to gaming after running a large online financial brokerage. Seeing that gaming was a much younger industry, he felt that the potential was greater and sought a way in. Back then Red Tiger was a start-up and he came across the owner in an Irish pub in his native Sofia. The rest is history as he boarded the next plane to Malta where he became Head of Account Management.
He remained with NetEnt for a time after the acquisition but missed the fast pace of the Red Tiger glory days. After taking some time to work with a few start-ups, he has now rejoined his former colleague Carl Ejlertsson as his right hand man at Octoplay. With these two at the helm, Octoplay is the hottest start-up to hit the industry since Big Time Gaming.
