GLOBAL GAMING BUSINESS PODCAST: Michael Silberling, CEO, Metropolitan Gaming

In a market as mature as the U.K., it can be hard to be a disruptor, especially on the brick-and-mortar side. However, Metropolitan Gaming and CEO Michael Silberling (l.) are looking to do just that. In just a few short years, Metropolitan has revamped its retail properties, built a new loyalty program and launched a new online gaming platform.

Few gaming executives in the world today have had a wider range of commercial, tribal, domestic and international experiences than Michael Silberling, CEO of Metropolitan Gaming. In 2021, when Silver Point Capital took over Caesars’ European, Middle Eastern and African operations to form Metropolitan, Silberling was tapped to take the reins, and he and his team are looking to take Metro to the top of a U.K. market that finds itself very much in flux. He spoke to GGB Managing Editor Jess Marquez from his London office in July.
