Greek gambling operator OPAP has announced its consolidated financial results for the period ended December 31, 2020.

OPAP reported revenues in FY 2020 stood at €1129.8m lower by 30.3% y-o-y. GGR came in at €230.9m decreased by 48.3% y-o-y as a result of the imposed lockdowns on retail venues. Net Profit in FY 2020 increased 1.5% to €205.3m (FY 2019: €202.4m).

Q4 2020 net profit reached €132.1m versus net profit of €61.8m in Q4 2019, while on an l-f-l basis Q4 2020 net profit dropped by 74.3%. Net profit has been positively affected by the recognition in Q4 of a €142.7m gain related to the re-measurement of the 36.75% stake held by Kaizen Gaming’s Greek and Cypriot operations.

Jan Karas, CEO of OPAP, said: “Although Q4 was yet another quarter disrupted by Covid-19, with retail closure and restrictions imposed for tackling the pandemic, OPAP has once again demonstrated substantial operational and financial readiness to mitigate the impact, through its diversified portfolio.

On the operational front, online growth contributed significantly to our topline, with both our revenues and our customer base reaching all-time high levels. At the same time, our investment in Kaizen Gaming, which operates the leading Stoiximan brand, has been concluded, our games portfolio has been further enhanced and our retail network partners have been supported efficiently.

Looking forward and having successfully preserved our solid financial position and cash reserves, we continue – despite the still prevailing exceptional conditions – to build on what we have already accomplished. With confidence, we are pursuing the successful execution of OPAP’s new business strategy, the Fast Forward strategy, in order to deliver even better Gaming Entertainment to our customers.”

Apex Live Gaming has launched a new device named “ChipperX” for the casinos.

Designed and manufactured by Apex, ChipperX is a dedicated chip management device. It automatically sorts chips by value or colour into one of 12 designated chip tracks. Each chip track is configured to sort and store a defined number of chip types.

“Apex Live Gaming is made up of people who understand and have experience working in land-based casinos. That’s why we make equipment that helps casino staff do their jobs faster, better, more comfortably and easier,” the company said.

ChipperX has the computing power to quickly and accurately count, sort and distribute up to 500 chips per minute. It produces game statistics with a minute-by-minute display stored in the device’s memory for one year.

Easy operation is guaranteed by remote control and diagnostics. Through remote access to ChipperX settings and management, Apex’s team of technicians can help customers control the device remotely in real time. This reduces operating costs and service time.
