Annual EBITDA surged to €60m for the full year, up 155% compared to 2022 and €20m for the quarter, up 194% YoY driven by strong sports trading margins and significant growth across its casino segment.
2023 – YEAR OF TIER-1 DELIVERY

Both brands went live with the supplier’s turnkey platform and sportsbook solutions at the end of 2023 and are delivering impressive results.
