Former Chelsea midfielder Vinnie Jones has teamed up with slot provider Swintt to release his own branded suite of casino games for the iGaming market.
The ex-footballer, who won the FA Cup back in 1988 with the now defunct Wimbledon FC, is a regular contributor to Easyodds.com, an international sports betting odds and online casino comparison site, which will collaborate with Swintt on the development process.
“We’ve been working with Vinnie Jones all year and enjoyed sharing his unique perspective and personality with our users on Easyodds.com,” David da Silva, CEO at Easyodds, said. “It’s been a privilege to bring Vinnie together with Swintt to create unique casino games that will be great fun to play whilst supporting a fantastic good cause.”
The games are set to be Swintt’s first batch of brand titles which are said to focus on various elements of Vinnie Jones’ life and persona, with a percentage of the profits made from the game set to be donated to the Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals Charity.
CEO at Swintt, David Flynn, commented: “Vinnie is a true British icon and globally renowned actor, having been successful in both sports and cinema, and we’re thrilled to be able to produce a suite of content around his image. His dedication to charity and philanthropic work is inspiring, making him a perfect celebrity for Swintt to work with.”
After hanging up his boots, Jones went on to build a successful Hollywood career, starring in numerous blockbuster films, including the X-Men franchise, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and his latest movie release The Big Ugly.
The 55-year-old will make a special guest appearance at tomorrow’s SBC Awards 2020, which will be broadcast live from Stamford Bridge, hosted by goalkeeping legend Petr Cech and sports broadcaster Kirsty Gallacher.
