West Midlands gaming company Intouch Games is set to bring around 150 jobs to the area in the next year following a record 12 months.

Best known for developing exclusive slots and casino games in-house, the company has grown into one of the UK’s leading games developers.

It is the parent company behind iGaming and Bingo brands mFortune, PocketWin, Mr Spin and Dr Slot.

The recruitment drive comes as part of a growth plan that sees the firm expand into international markets and renovate its studio in Fountain House, Halesowen.

The company has turned unused office space into a state-of-the-art gym, studio and canteen.

The team will look to fill new roles across the company within the next six to 12 months in its design, game development, customer support, marketing, mathematics, IT and finance teams.

"Our ongoing success comes from our ability to cover everything in-house, while constantly adapting to the challenges and opportunities our industry offers," said head of recruitment Matt Evans.

Intouch Games has already recruited 120 new team members since moving to its current premises two-and-a-half years ago.

The company, which recruited 39 in the six weeks to the start of May, has more than two million players across its brands.

It also supports a number of charities in the West Midlands, nationally and internationally.
