Stourbridge online casino company Intouch Games, which has been named among Britain's most inspirational companies by London Stock Exchange Group, is recruiting up to 60 new staff over the next 12 months.

The company in Bradley Road, best known for its mFortune and Pocketwin casino brands, was selected for inclusion in the LSE's annual '1,000 Companies to Inspire Britain' publication which celebrates innovative and dynamic companies over the past financial year.

Intouch Games passed the four qualifying factors used to determine a company's inclusion: the business must have revenue between £6 million and £250m, be privately owned and UK registered. In addition, they must avoid a low credit score and have been operating for over three years.

Managing director Simon Wilson said: "This is a real achievement for the company. We are Black Country based and are really proud to have achieved such success when quite recently there has not been much good news for businesses in the Black Country.

"Its shows the hard work and dedication of all the team employed by Intouch Games and illustrates the tremendous growth of the company and the potential we are yet to fulfil."

Mr Wilson hopes it will also encourage people to join his burgeoning business. "We are currently on a recruitment drive based on hiring great game developers and designers. I am sure this recognition will be noticed by all potential new employees as an indication that Intouch Games is an ambitious and successful company to work for and that tech isn't only a success in London."

He is seeking to take on 30 'high end' programmers, 10 graphic designers, 10 call centre agents and 10 apprentices over the next year. Intouch Games has two online and mobile casinos, mFortune and PocketWin, and has won numerous industry awards. Intouch has been trading for nine years as one of the only privately owned gaming companies in the UK.

It employs 100 in total including about 60 at its head office in Stourbridge and has European offices in Budapest and Bucharest.
