BUSY AREA: The Isle of Man eas well represented at the ICE exhibition in London

THE island’s new head of eGaming is likely to be someone who is not a serving civil servant, says the current outgoing chief Tim Craine.

He retires from the island’s government at the end of March after a 34 year career in the civil service.

Speaking shortly after returning from a highly successful showing at the ICE Totally Gaming exhibition in London, Mr Craine told Business News: ‘The exact contractual arrangements are still to be finalised but it’s unlikely that it will be a serving civil servant [who gets the job]. It is more likely to be someone from the private sector, who has worked in industry and has the contacts and knowledge of the products and the structures.’
