Bet-at-home H1 cost-cutting pushes earnings despite revenue decline

German-facing sports betting and igaming operator Bet-at-home.com announced the business’ cost-cutting measures has tripled the company’s EBITDA, despite an overall decline in revenue.

Bet-at-home’s gross gambling revenue stood at €24.2m in H1 2023. This was a 9.3% fall from the €26.7m the business achieved in the same period the previous year.

In particular, Bet-at-home highlighted the impact of the monthly betting limits Germany implemented from 1 July 2022.
