Following notice of the departure of a key appointment.

The market's negative reaction to Ainsworth Game Technology's announcement on the departure of its group manager of strategy and development, Scott Clarebrough, has prompted a response from chief executive Danny Gladstone who said "the market had over-reacted".

Concerns over Ainsworth's new games pipeline were dismissed by Gladstone who told Fairfax Media: "To use a football analogy, he's been coaching for the last five or six years and he's got some very good people who he has acted as a mentor to. There is a solid plan for the rollout of games and we have a 45-strong design team who are working on that."

Following his retirement, Clarebrough will remain with Ainsworth Game Technology for another 12 months, Gladstone noted, and may also be used in an advisory role following his official departure.

Clarebrough is considered to be the leading force behind many of Ainsworth's most popular content and was integral in the development of the company's Showgirls and The Sound of Music games.

Several popular Ainsworth games such as Mustang Money and Roaming Reels are currently translated for online by GAN (formerly Game Account Network) and available at their B2C facing Moneygaming brand (See the casino directory for more details) and are rumoured to be distributed via Playtech's mobile game platform to a number of Playtech casino licencees in 2016.
