Online lottery platform Lottery.com has appointed Katie Lever as its first Chief Legal Officer, who will be further supported on the board of advisors by gaming compliance experts Mark Lipparelli and Ron Hopkinson.
Lever previously served as General Counsel to some of the gaming industry’s largest global suppliers, including through the mergers of SHFL entertainment, Inc, Bally Technologies, Inc, Scientific Games Corp and, most recently, as Chief Legal Counsel to Drew Las Vegas, a planned $4bn integrated resort and casino on the Las Vegas Strip.
She is a recognised gaming law specialist and an expert in compliance and government relations, as well as a board member of Global Gaming Women and a Director and Audit Chair of Bank of George. She also served as the first Executive Vice President and General Counsel for Everi Holdings Inc.
CEO Tony DiMatteo said: “Katie is a seasoned expert in our highly regulated field and brings broad strategic leadership and experience to our team. We look forward to Katie’s guidance as we begin a new chapter as a public company and expand both domestically and internationally.
“I speak for the whole team when I say that we are thrilled to have her setting the course for the regulatory future of our industry.”
As CLO, Lever will drive Lottery.com’s expansion as a public company in the gaming industry, leading the charge on the company’s legal, compliance, and regulatory requirements.
She said on her appointment: “I am very excited to join the Lottery.com team at this exciting phase of the company’s growth. I am looking forward to leading our legal and compliance efforts as the company continues to build on its success in a variety of new and innovative ways.”
Earlier this year, Lottery.com entered into a definitive agreement with Trident Acquisitions Corp for a business combination that would result in the company becoming publicly listed.
