888’s Remains Committed to Global Growth Strategy  

While 888 has long been a leading European brand, company CEO Itai Pazner has confirmed that the company is looking to drive steadier inroads in the US market. Recently, 888 offered to buy up some of William Hill’s international assets.

Pazner acknowledged that the company hasn’t been able to complete all tasks at hand, but it has driven significant growth in key verticals, such as casino poker and sports betting, and specifically in Europe.

He acknowledged that 888 is still in a better position in the US in terms of iGaming than of sports betting. That is something the company would seek to fix now, securing a high-profile partnership with Sportradar to boost integrity.

888 also recently became an official partner for the National Football League (NFL) back in the United Kingdom. Moving forward, the company will pivot towards US sports betting while bolstering its operations elsewhere.
