Our mission is to be the best gaming operator and games developer in the industry, building and providing games that players love.
From a handful of talented designers, developers and operators, to a multi award-winning team of over a thousand, we’ve come a long way since 2002.
Back then, Jackpotjoy was our only venture; now we operate some of the world’s biggest and best gaming sites and apps.
Through cutting-edge technology, we continue to fuel innovations in gaming. And through cutting the many cakes in our offices, we fuel ourselves to make games that thrill, surprise and delight our many millions of players!
Whether it be through the awards we've won for innovation in Bingo and Slots, our commitment to using cutting edge technology, or simply our passion to innovate, thrill, and surprise, Gamesys constantly pushes the boundaries to be the best in class.
Our culture is visible everywhere. Visit our reception in London - you’ll find sweets and a giant monkey, in the design team a giant red lamp and the latest quad core mac pros;
the breakout areas a Gamesys pool table and fridges full of beer, wine and soft drinks. In the meeting rooms you might find grass instead of carpet, in the summer you’ll meet all our families together for a celebration and in the winter, you can find Mexican wrestlers or circus acts roaming around.
Weekly social and sports events give you the opportunity to stretch both your mind and body, whether it be getting involved in a meetup or brownbag session, playing in the poker tournament or joining one of the many sports teams.
But our culture is not just in what you can see it's in everything we do, we're hard workers and we get stuck in.
