Gamesys Group has announced a pre-close trading update for FY2020.

After a continued strong performance in Q4, the Board is confident that the Group will report FY 2020 Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA at, or above, the upper end of current market expectations for the period.

Lee Fenton, CEO of Gamesys Group, commented: “Gamesys has delivered a tremendous performance during 2020. Our strong growth is the result of excellent execution against our strategy, a deep understanding of our player base, and our commitment to always putting players at the heart of everything that we do. Against the backdrop of a global pandemic, our relentless focus on the sustainability of our revenue streams, coupled with ensuring player and staff wellbeing, has positioned us well to carry our considerable forward-momentum into 2021. We maintained strong and sustainable growth during 2020; a period in which we completed the integration of our enlarged Group, entertained record numbers of active players, and significantly enhanced our propositions and technology platforms. During the year, we also delivered a maiden dividend and as we enter 2021, we are in a strong position to continue to deliver growth in the business and create value for our shareholders.”

Dutch Online Gaming Launch Delayed Once Again

Dutch Online Gaming Launch Delayed Once Again
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

The Dutch Remote Gambling Act (KOA) has been delayed yet again, with Minister for Legal Protection Sander Dekker pushing the date the law comes into effect back to 1 April 2021, and the date the market opens back to 1 October.

Responding to a series of questions from legislators, Dekker announced that the latest delay was necessary as the Government had realised a slower implementation of the laws may create a stronger environment of regulation.

“Earlier I informed you that we are aiming for entry into force on 1 March 2021. Although the implementation is proceeding energetically, it has now become clear to all involved that careful implementation takes a little more time,” Dekker said.

“For this reason, we shall postpone the entry into force of the Koa Act by one month until 1 April, 2021, so that De Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) and the gambling sector have sufficient opportunity for complete preparation. The opening of the market will then take place on 1 October 2021,” Dekker added.

Initially, KOA was scheduled to enter into law on 1 July 2020, with the market to open six months later at the start of 2021. However, in November 2019, the act’s start date was pushed back six months, meaning the market would open on 1 July 2021.

In September 2020, the launch was pushed back again, with the date the act was set to come into effect moved to 1 March 2021, after preparations to launch had been disrupted by the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

The latest delay is the third, and means the law is now set to come into force nine months later than originally planned.

Black Spins Relaunches on 888 Network

Casy Digital has completed the migration of their Black Spins site from the Nektan network to the 888 casino network.

Migrating to another network is not uncommon in the case of online casinos. However, Black Spins is different in the sense that they will not be accepting players from the UK, unlike all the other casino sites on the 888 casino network. This certainly does seem to indicate a potential change of focus for this particular network as they seek to reduce reliance on the UK market.

“In teaming up with 888, not only do we have a quality platform and gaming option, we are also with a company who is committed to excellence and share our vision for growing in key markets outside of the UK,” Tommy Dawson, CEO of Casy Digital, said.
