Betsson rolls out flagship brand in Italy

Betsson Group has set out plans to expand its presence in Italy with the launch of its flagship Betsson brand in the country.

The Italy-facing Betsson will feature an online casino offering including slots, table games and live casino. Players will also have access to sports betting on the new website.

The group has been active in Italy for more than a decade via its StarCasinò. This brand will continue to operate alongside the new Betsson website.

Betsson said the launch forms part of its ongoing strategy to expand its flagship offering into new markets. This includes expansion in Latin America, where it holds licences in Argentina and Colombia, with plans in place to build on this.

“Italy has grown significantly in importance for Betsson,” chief commercial officer Ronni Hartvig said. “We believe this is an opportune moment to introduce our flagship brand, Betsson, to the market.

“By consolidating our operations under the unified Betsson brand, we aim to harness the power of sc..

Betsson CEO Lindwall celebrates “record year for the group” and outlines 2024 plans

A record 2023 saw Betsson post higher revenues and EBITDA than ever before. With further global expansion on the cards, Betsson chief executive Pontus Lindwall believes it’s the company’s localised approach that will help them achieve further growth.

Revenues shot up by 22% to a record €948.2m (£811.3m/$1bn) for Betsson’s 2023 financial year. EBITDA also skyrocketed 52% to €262.7m from €172.4m in 2022. The year-end results were aided by a surge in Q4, one that saw group revenue hike by 14%.

Quite the set of results then for Betsson. According to Lindwall, the positive outlook for the company looks set to continue, both short- and long-term. The CEO is delighted with the group’s performance, comparing the operator to a well-oiled machine.

“Of course, we’re very happy with the outcome of 2023,” Lindwall told iGB. “It’s a record year by far for the group. It’s nice to finish off so strongly with the record quarter as well.

“I think we have a strategy that has played us well as we are ..

GiG reveals Betsson as first Colombia sportsbook partner

Gaming Innovation Group (GiG) has revealed Betsson Group as its first sportsbook partner in Colombia, after only initially releasing partial details of the deal.

In June, GiG said its Sportnco subsidiary had signed its first Colombia-facing sportsbook deal with an unnamed ‘tier-one’ operator.

GiG has now revealed it has been working with Betsson in Colombia for the past year, with the country the third regulated market in which GiG provides both software and services to this client.

The deal, GiG said, ratifies a partnership that was initiated more than 12 months ago when Betsson completed the takeover of regional operator Colbet.co in June 2021, shortly after which it agreed to migrate onto GiG’s Sportnco’s platform.

Betsson, which operates both online and via retail in Colombia, said that its presence in the country increased significantly over the past year as a result of using GAN’s player account manager.

“As part of our rebranding in Colombia, we migrated to GiG’s platform ..

LatAm now Betsson’s largest market amid European decline in Q2

Betsson disclosed revenue of €186.3m (£158.9m/$189.5m) from its second quarter results, which saw Latin America become its largest market – while revenue in western Europe fell by almost 40%..

Pontus Lindwall, CEO at Betsson [pictured above] said the business saw progress in most areas throughout the quarter, and spoke highly of its sportsbook progress.

“Betsson’s second quarter featured continued good growth with all-time high revenue and further investments to support our expansion,” said Lindwall. “The group’s organic growth was 13%, mainly driven by Latin America, Central and Eastern Europe and Central Asia, where we see long-term growth potential as these markets still have a low share of online gaming.”

“The sportsbook business showed a strong development in the quarter – gross turnover increased by 20% and the margin was 8.3% (8.5%) – leading to all-time high revenue.”

Latin America is now Betsson’s largest market. In Q2, it accumulated revenue of €45.7m, up significantly by..
