Online casino games provider and operator Glitnor Group announced today the acquisition of KaFe Rocks, an iGaming affiliate company, for an undisclosed sum.
Entering the Lead Generation Space
The acquisition of KaFe Rocks, a gambling affiliate business operating out of Malta, announced the entry of Glitnor Group into the online gambling lead generation space and is expected to contribute to the future growth of the group.
Commenting on the announcement, Glitnor Group chief executive officer David Flynn did not hide the ambition of the company he leads to “become a leading iGaming group,” with the acquisition of KaFe Rocks as the proof of the group’s strong intent to establish its presence in lead generation.
“In KaFe Rocks we have an established business being run by an incredibly talented team that owns and operates a network of successful, reputable affiliate assets that will drive growth for the wider group.”

Glitnor Group’s acquisition of KaFe Rocks complements the group’s business that is currently running B2C online casino brands Lucky Casino and Gambola, as well as B2B casino content supplier Swintt.

Following the acquisition of KaFe Rocks, certain personnel at the affiliation company will join the ranks of Glitnor Group: co-founder Feda Mecan will join the board of directors at Glitnor, while chief executive officer Simon Pilkington will become part of the executive management team.
“I’ve been hugely impressed with the leadership team at Glitnor and am massively excited for what the future holds for both KaFe Rocks and the Glitnor Group,” Pilkington said, outlining that “both companies share a vision for growth, … value the people driving it” and believe the culture they create allows people to thrive.
“The trust that they are showing in us to continue being KaFe Rocks is gratefully received and I’m extremely driven to deliver the results that will help the new group achieve its goals.”
