      • Live 5 WELCOMES THE MAGNIFICENT 7

      One of the fastest-growing game development houses, Live 5 Gaming will have welcomed seven new games developers and graphic artists within a 12-month period.
      The new recruits, who range from apprentice to senior levels, will join the existing Live 5 Gaming team and constitute a significant expansion for the Wolverhampton-based company.
      "It has been a phenomenal 12 months for Live 5 Gaming," says Lloyd Butler, CEO. "Following the success of Live 5's first title; 'The Sky's the Limit' which was such a hit with Sky VEGAS players, we have consolidated our position with Stairway to Heaven and demand has been so incredible, that we are now expanding." Live 5's signature style of feature-rich, pub-style games has resonated with the player base and led to a succession of high-profile orders. To date, Stairway to Heaven has been taken up by Sky Vegas and Rank Group PLC among others. In addition, the company has been awarded its Alderney Gambling Commission Licence. "Such is the demand for our titles among blue-chip clients that we have had to increase our development schedule to meet the demand," adds Chairman Roy Howell. "These new appointments reflect a new era for Live 5 Gaming."
