London-listed gaming operator GVC Holdings has announced the acquisition of Portuguese online gambling operator Bet.pt, on the day the group upgraded its earnings guidance for the full year.

GVC saw its overall net gaming revenue rise by 12% in Q3, year-on-year, with online NGR up 26%. UK and European retail revenues are within 10% of those seen prior to enforced closures, while online sports wagers are “well ahead” of those seen in 2019. BetMGM, the sports betting and gaming platform of Roar Digital, GVC’s joint venture with MGM Resorts, is now live in eight states taking 17% of market share.

Shay Segev, CEO of GVC, said: “This has been another strong period for GVC. We have delivered our 19th consecutive quarter of double-digit online growth, along with market share gains in all our major territories. The momentum that we are seeing across the group is a clear testament to the resilience of our highly diversified business model, the attractiveness of our brands and products, the power of our proprietary technology platform, and the hard work and dedication of our teams around the world.

“GVC is primed for further growth. In the US, BetMGM continues to go from strength to strength as we roll out into new states, integrate further with our partners’ customer propositions and deliver innovative products and features. With a market share of approximately 17 per cent across our live markets, we are making great progress towards being the leading operator in the US.

“The acquisition of Bet.pt that we are announcing today is consistent with our strategy of expanding into new markets that are either regulated or regulating, in order to support our international growth ambitions.

“While the risk of further restrictions as a result of Covid-19 mean that we remain cautious on the short-term outlook, in the longer term we are confident of being able to continue delivering sustainable growth for all our stakeholders.”

2 more shortlists in the SBC Awards bring King Billy’s total award tally to 11

It looks like there is no shortage of news from King Billy in the Award Front. After landing Best Casino in the 2020 AskGamblers Awards and getting a shortlist in the 2020 EGR “Oscars” of the gaming world, King Billy Casino nicely wraps up the season with two more nominations, this time for the coveted SBC Awards.

King Billy has been shortlisted in two categories: Rising Star in Casino and Affiliate Program. Do the two awards interrelate? And what do they mean for King Billy, now holders, as we are told, of 11 awards and distinctions in only 3 years of operations? Volodymyr Harkusha, King Billy CEO has the answers.

“These awards and actually all the awards we have gotten so far mean so much to us! Deposits may be our bread and butter but awards are our pride, joy and recognition that we are doing something really special. Mind you, we have been getting awards both from the industry pundits and the players, which shows the power of King Billy in both worlds. As further proof of the above, let me also mention the Casinomeister accreditation our casino got a few days ago.

Are the Rising Star and the Affiliate Program shortlists interrelated? Yes, they are! There is no compartmentalization in the Kingdom and one department’s success is all departments’ reason to celebrate. We push each other to become better and better, just like players in a winning team do”.

Well, there is no doubt that the “King’s 11” are certainly a winning team.
