Henry Dimech is a 2-decade veteran of the iGaming industry during which he has accumulated extensive experience in the Operational, Regulatory and Corporate spheres.
Highly passionate about sports and betting since early age, he entered the industry back in 2001 joining Unibet. There he took responsibility for the production of the sportsbook offering, connecting the dots on the wide variety of areas related to it.
His first regulatory foray came in 2006 following the introduction of the Italian betting regulation, handling the first sportsbook transition from a “.com” environment to “.country”. Through this experience he also began writing Terms and Conditions where for the next 15 years he supported the exponential growth in the offering through conceiving, authoring, and maintaining the Sportsbook’s House Rules covering over 100 sports approved in over 50 jurisdictions worldwide.
Following Kambi’s branching out to develop its B2B business in 2010, he entered the corporate sphere through his appointment as Director for the organization’s Malta operations and subsidiaries, General Manager for the corporate HQs, as well as MGA Key Official and MLRO. The highlight of this experience came in August 2018 when he and the organization were licensed and took the first legal online bet in the US post-PASPA. As the US business increasingly evolved, and after setting up the Operational Regulatory team, Henry started to take more of an advisory role within operations, taking care of special projects and being appointed as Head of Internal Audit in 2019. In the meantime, his involvement in the corporate sphere deepened as he was eventually appointed as Key Licensee in 17 US states, Canada, and various other jurisdictions.
Henry takes pride and is motivated in finding ways to create new betting opportunities in a regulatory compliant way. Through his love for statistics, he also developed a data-driven approach that introduced to market concepts amalgamating sports, TV/entertainment, and gambling.
He now focuses his efforts through Consiulenza, where he is a Founder and Managing Director.
