Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

Unibet owners, the Kindred Group, have thanked their teams all around the world as they have outlined why they have had an excellent year, despite it having been rather challenging at times.

Indeed, they shared that whilst teamwork was an important factor and the reason as to why they were able to be as successful as they were, they were also able to continue to meet and exceed the ambitious objectives that they had set out for themselves as a group, whilst also sharing how they had managed to achieve what they did over the course of the financial year.

Here is a rundown of what their company statement mentioned and how it impacted the Kindred Group as a whole:

Continued development in the US Market

Of course, the US iGaming market represents one of the biggest opportunities for businesses within the industry and sector, something that the Kindred Group were keen to explore and establish themselves in as soon as they physically could.

Having seen their operations in the US market start back in 2019 with business in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, the Kindred Group saw that they had managed to grow at rates that they deemed acceptable, with a 4.2% market share in Pennsylvania already having been acquired in their first full year, whilst New Jersey continued to grow at a steady rate.

In 2020, they launched their Unibet Indiana operation, whilst 2021 saw them announce a partnership that would help them to enter the western markets of the US, with market access in California and Arizona being agreed, with the first port of call to build a loyal and stable customer base to help them achieve the results they desire.

The Kindred Group remains focused on continuing to expand in the US market by focusing on specific states that will allow them to be successful, with plans to launch in Illinois and Iowa with partnerships with Penn National Gaming and Caesars Entertainment, respectively.

Teamwork

As mentioned, the Kindred Group were of the opinion that the main reason for being able to achieve everything they had set out to do so was down to the foundations that their team had placed.

The team of employees that the group has worked hard to keep their focus on their customers and the business as a whole by adapting the way that they worked, whilst also adjusting the cost base in a way they deemed would have been “impossible” a year ago.

Continued market share gains

As already highlighted, market share in the US market had continued to grow, however the Kindred Group also revealed that they had positive market share growth in other markets, as well.

Improved results were found in Sweden after they adapted their business, whilst Australia continues to show large forms of growth as they continue to go from “strength to strength” in that market as activity continues to grow.

What can be expected in the future for the Kindred Group?

It would seem that the future is already really bright for the Kindred Group, as they have outlined that there are a number of different factors that they may look to follow and exploit further to ensure they keep growing and solidify their place as a market leader in various locations.

One such way that they may do this is by looking to accelerate the changes that they make to their company structure, as it is evident that online casinos are the way forward, with the company now of the belief that this could be the way forward for bettors in the future.

Further changes expected include conforming to locally regulated markets despite the continued uncertainties that these may prevent in the short-term, whilst also continuing to review their strategic direction and working hard to reach their ambitious goal of obtaining zero revenue from harmful gambling in 2023, as they look to make gambling a safer experience for everyone.

Galaxy Racer (GXR), the biggest esports, gaming and lifestyle organisation, headquartered in Dubai, is pleased to announce that its content creator, AboFlah, has successfully raised over US$11M in a charity stream for The World’s Coolest Winter campaign. Whilst completing the stream, AboFlah also officially broke two GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ titles for the “Longest live-stream (video)”, recording live for 268 hours 14 mins 20 seconds and “Most viewers for a charity donation live stream on YouTube”, attracting 698,000 peak concurrent views.

The World’s Coolest Winter campaign, celebrates the UAE’s most beautiful tourism destinations, extended it’s humanitarian support to more than 100,000 refugees and people in need through a new humanitarian initiative called Warm Winter. The campaign aims to support hundreds of thousands of refugees and families in need in Africa and the Arab world by providing food, winter clothing, blankets, mattresses and critical aid to help displaced men, women and children prepare for harsh winter conditions. The campaign is being held in partnership with Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (MBRGI) and Galaxy Racer. The essential aid will be distributed with the support of the UN refugee agency, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the Food Banking Regional Network.

As part of the campaign, AboFlah lived in a glass room in Downtown Dubai, near the Burj Khalifa and streamed continuously for 268 hours until the target of US$10 million was raised. While in the room, AboFlah encouraged people to donate and spent the majority of his time in front of his computer interacting with fans and those donating to the cause. The stream also attracted global attention and donations from celebrities and influencers including the likes of actress Kristin Davies, actor Amr Maskoun as well as content creators Noor Stars and Omar Farooq.

Launching his YouTube channel in 2017, AboFlah began posting gaming content of him playing FIFA17 before creating content on Fall Guys and Fortnite. His YouTube channel is one of the fastest-growing YouTube channels in the world, with over 23 million subscribers and over 3 billion views. He is followed by millions of fans who avidly watch his vlogs, comedy shorts and formatted shows covering video games and popular culture. AboFlah went on to join Galaxy Racer’s content creator team in 2020, which already boasts some of the biggest content creators in the MENA and Southeast Asia region including fellow YouTube sensation Noor Stars. The organisation now carries over 100 content creators, with a total reach of over 500 million followers across all platforms and more than 2.5 billion monthly views.

Galaxy Racer launched in 2019 and has already become one of the biggest esports, gaming, and lifestyle organisations globally. The organisation has five separate business offerings; Content Creators, Esports Teams, Tournament Management, Merchandising and Lifestyle and GXR Records, a newly established record label that already carries two signed artists from the MENA region and are looking to expand globally.

Galaxy Racer content creator and YouTube sensation, Hassan Suleiman “AboFlah” said: “Warmth in winter for those facing harsh winter conditions is no less important than food and water. There are millions of refugees and displaced people who need all the support they can get. I am proud and thrilled we achieved our goal and raised over US$11 million and brought warmth to the lives of those who are deprived of it. Thank you to everyone who generously donated!

We have proven that Arab youth are capable of changing reality, even with small deeds, and reaching a bright future. “People for People.” This sentence is not a metaphorical slogan, but it was manifested by the huge numbers of donors who felt compassion toward the suffering of refugees and displaced people. This reflects the huge impact this campaign had, which drove viewers’ enthusiasm for participation.

The societal role depends on everyone’s participation, believing in the importance of upholding our human values, and the solidarity in supporting the ones in need. Everyone of us has a role to play in creating the desired positive impact. UAE is the homeland of virtues, and the humanitarian moral actions in this blessed country transcend borders and can’t be stopped by obstacles, such deeds present the community with moral values that our Arab region is in dire need for.”

Galaxy Racer Founder and CEO, Paul Roy said: “We are amazed and grateful by the immense generosity shown by the fans, community and the general public. Raising over US$11 million is no easy task and we’re glad to be part of this humanitarian initiative which will positively impact the affected 100,000 refugees. Smashing two GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ titles is impressive and a testament to the resilience shown by AboFlah, the Galaxy Racer team, together with our partners MBRGI, UNHCR and the Food Banking Regional Network. We thank you everyone for participating in this record-breaking charity initiative and we look forward to more positive impact initiatives.”
