Gaming Intelligence (www.gamingintelligence.com) revealed recently the first Gaming Intelligence Hot 50, a celebration of the most talented, innovative and inspiring individuals working in online gambling, an industry that continues to prosper while many others struggle.
We are proud to announce that Ólafur Andri Ragnarsson, Betware´s co-founder and Chief Software Arcitect was on the list under the category „Rising Stars & Tech Wisards“. The following is stated about Ólafur Andri in Gaming Intelligence´s recent review.
„Ólafur Andri Ragnarsson – Chief software architect, Betware
Betware is a small Icelandic company but it has created a gaming platform designed to lottery standard, which never falls over. Ragnarsson can take much of the credit for this. A seemingly quiet figure, when it comes time to getting his point across he has the uncanny knack of making people sit up and listen. His words carry weight. In his spare time, Ragnarsson is a lecturer in software and programming at Reykjavik University. He does it because he wants to give something back to Iceland. Betware’s platform has been selected by some of the most innovative national and state lotteries in Europe and North America because its software is second to none. Danske Spil, CIRSA, British Columbia Lottery Corporation and Íslensk Getspá all rely on Ragnarsson’s technology. As more and more lotteries (not normally the most dynamic of organisations) realise the benefits of online technology, Betware is sure to be in the mix.“
