GVC B2B skyrockets; Betsson brings live casino to Italy; Tivoli goes live in Denmark

TAGs: Betsson, Denmark, GVC Holdings, Italy, Play'n Go, tivoli

news in brief 200x141GVC Holdings are hailing the performance of their B2B unit after it posted significant growth in the first half of the year. Revenues for the entire division were up from €7.7k per day to €164.2k per day. Much of this was down to the service agreement it signed with East Pioneer Corp – the company that bought Sportingbet’s Turkish brand. That meant sports wagers rose to €1.3 million per day as opposed to just €80k this time last year.

Their B2C business posted modest growth with revenues up 4 percent to €106k per day and revenues from the company’s South American Betboo brand were up 32 percent to €28k per day. CasinoClub saw a decline of 4 percent to €78k, something that GVC put down to “ongoing consumer uncertainty in Germany.”

Italian casino consumers can say buon giorno to a new live casino after Betsson took their offering online. Right off the bat StarCasino.it will have Evolution Gaming’s Venezia Roulette and Ventuno live tables with a dedicated live blackjack offering on the way in the near future. Fabio Bufalini, general manager Betsson Italy stated: “Betsson Group has already achieved international success with Evolution Live Casino. In Italy we were also aware of Evolution’s localised solutions and their dedicated tables, which we see as the way forward in this market. Evolution was therefore the natural choice as StarCasino’s Live Casino partner for Italy.”

Land-based casino Tivoli has gone live with a complete iGaming solution for the Danish market. Tivoli’s online casino, built in association with Play’n GO, will be at www.tivolicasino.dk, and extend into the mobile market at some point in the near future. Lars Dam-Johnson, head of gaming at Tivoli, revealed that they chose their partner after testing out eight others, and he added: “Their flexible and high quality back-end system plus the group of people involved made us sign with Play’n GO. We expect a great partnership, we expect to create long time value for both companies and are pleased with the solution delivered”.
