Description

EGR Global (eGaming Review) is the world’s leading B2B publisher and membership networking group for the online gaming industry, featuring consistent exclusive news, interviews, and comment from the most influential people in the sector.

EGR has a strong track record of breaking exclusive industry stories, and the news editor will be expected to ensure EGR’s online content improves even further.
