(PRESS RELEASE) -- Respected industry veteran Roger Withers has been confirmed as the new Chairman of Live 5 Gaming, following the passing of previous Chairman Roy Howell last year.

Roger joined the board of rapidly expanding Live 5 on 1 January, this year and is looking forward to helping to guide the company alongside CEO Lloyd Butler.

Lloyd commented, ‘Roy was a fantastic mentor and Chairman over the last few years for Live 5 and will be deeply missed. Roger will help us grow to the next level through his vast experience of both the industry and big business. It has been a seamless transition since he joined us and we are very excited about working together, growing Live 5 and bringing ‘Live 5 Premium’ to the market through 2019.”

Roger Withers, as ex-Chairman of Playtech Plc, ex-Chairman of Sportech Plc, recently retired Director of Inspired Entertainment Inc, and current Chairman of SafeCharge, brings a wealth of industry experience to Live 5, yet relishes the challenge ahead. He commented: “It is a pleasure and a privilege to take on Roy’s mantle and join such a young, creative and ambitious team, ably led by Lloyd Butler, as they develop ground breaking online content. I feel sure we can develop Live 5 Gaming to become the pre-eminent designer in its field.”

Live 5 are planning an ambitious 2019 with a steady flow of 'Live 5 Premium' content.

The first of the premium content is an exclusive Premium Game ‘Fortune Lucky’, launched in January 2019 with Sky Vegas.
