Lindwall Summarized Betsson’s Q3 Achievements

Pontus Lindwall, Betsson’s president and chief executive officer, commented on the results, highlighting the high customer activity, strong financial development and investments in product and new markets.

Linwall praised the increased metrics, noting that the Q3 revenue and EBIT are the highest Betsson has ever recorded. He noted that the figures include the acquisition of betFIRST.

Lindwall added that the Nordics was the only major region that failed to reflect Betsson’s high growth. In the meantime, the company continued to expand its presence, acquiring betFIRST in Belgium, launching in Serbia and obtaining a sports betting license in France.

The executive highlighted the importance of B2B to his company’s growth strategy and said that his team will continue to strengthen the B2B offering. He noted that in September Betsson supplied Bethard with its sportsbook solution.

Q3 was also an important period for the company as it saw it launch its first-ever global advertising campaign.

The theme “A bet makes the difference” focuses on the excitement and entertainment that comes from placing a bet, on sports or casino, rather than the chances of winning. The campaign is part of the marketing strategy to establish Betsson as the Group’s global main brand, aiming to achieve economies of scale and competitive advantages for the business in the long run.
