At GiG, we’re constantly innovating to provide unparalleled experiences for online casino operators and their users. Our Game Recommendation Engine (GRE) harnesses the power of AI-driven technology to revolutionize game configuration, akin to the personalised experiences offered by leading media streaming platforms.

Working seamlessly with Frontend interfaces, Content Management Systems, and CRM solutions, GiG’s GRE streamlines content selection, eliminating manual processes through advanced algorithms and filtering systems. By leveraging game, user, and market data, it generates tailored game lists, predicting optimal rankings and preferences for individual users or user groups. The GRE is a self-learning autonomous solution that continuously refines its recommendations through real-time feedback, adapting to evolving player profiles and behaviors.

What you’ll be doing

  • Scraping Mechanism Enhancement: Upgrade the GRE’s scraping mechanism with modern frameworks for better data collection.
  • Data Integration: Integrate public data with internal databases using fuzzy-logic and machine learning algorithms.
  • Recommendation Algorithm Development: Contribute to designing and implementing a new recommendation algorithm based on game metadata similarities.

What’s in it for you?

  • Research and Learning: Explore modern scraping frameworks and algorithms relevant to the project.
  • Development and Implementation: Code, test, and deploy updates to improve the GRE’s scraping mechanism.
  • Data Analysis and Integration: Analyze data, identify patterns, and assist in integrating datasets effectively.
  • Algorithm Design and Testing: Prototype, test, and refine recommendation algorithms, ensuring performance and relevance.
  • Documentation and Reporting: Maintain clear documentation, contribute to project reports, and communicate progress effectively.


The skills required for the intern to successfully contribute to the project include:

  • Programming Proficiency: Strong programming skills in languages such as Python, and familiarity with libraries/frameworks for web scraping, data manipulation (e.g., BeautifulSoup, Scrapy, pandas), and machine learning (e.g., scikit-learn, TensorFlow, PyTorch).
