SiGMA Group has acquired a majority stake in iGaming Academy, the industry’s leading training provider, for an undisclosed figure.

This acquisition is set to greatly complement our portfolio, by embedding various forms of industry education throughout SiGMA’s global event schedule and online network.

In the words of Eman Pulis, SiGMA Group founder, “The acquisition comes at a perfect time for us. We’ve been working closely with iGaming Academy for many years now. I love what Jaime and the Conexus Group have built and look forward to supporting this growth with new initiatives and a wider offering of educational programs globally. The industry is crying out for more talent and regulatory insight, with new markets continuing to regulate. As a result, we want to be very active in this business.”

In the words of Robert Dowling from Conexus Group, “Conexus will remain actively involved in the iGaming Academy and our clients will continue to receive the outstanding training they expect from this brand,” said Rob Dowling, CEO of The Conexus Group. “We are confident that this strategic acquisition by SiGMA will allow the iGaming Academy to expand and improve its services offering to better serve the evolving training needs of the iGaming industry.”

Jaime Debono went on to elaborate, “This acquisition marks a major milestone for iGaming Academy – our mission has also been to educate the industry – both on key regulatory compliance topics as well as vocational training for existing and new markets. With the support of SiGMA Group, we will be able to accelerate this strategy through their global event calendar, enrich both training and event content and reach a much wider audience than ever before”

“The acquisition of IGA is another important milestone for SiGMA’s vision. IGA’s extensive training library rounds up our offer of services for the igaming industry by allowing us to be at the forefront of educational and regulatory tools for the market. We have strong confidence in Jaime and his team and are thrilled about the next chapters,” added Vinicius Moraes de Carvalho, Investment Partner at Ikigai Ventures.

We will continue to work in our current organisational structure with Jaime Debono remaining as company CEO and continuing to work alongside our team.

The management here at iGaming Academy will remain at the helm, with SiGMA’s corporate governance and marketing arm supporting the business to go from strength to strength.

Following the acquisition, we will be setting up an office in Cyprus to continue to build our online offering and content development. In addition, revenue streams will also be bolstered through new affiliate partner deals. More courses will also be made available in multiple languages, thus meeting the global demand for training.
