888 Ceo Bullish On Company's Online Sports Betting Product

"Sport continues to provide a big opportunity for 888," says Mattingley

888 Holdings chief executive Brian Mattingley remains bullish on the prospects for his company's online sports betting venture 888Sports, telling reporters in a conference call Wednesday that his company's Emerging Offering division, which includes the sportsbook product, generated $7 million in revenues – up 15 percent – in Q2-2014.
"Our Sports betting offer once again performed well during quarter two, in line with our ambitious goals and expectations," Mattingley said.
"Sport continues to provide a big opportunity for 888, both in terms of revenue and market share growth and we are continually looking at ways to further improve our offer."
Elaborating on the company's sports betting plans, chief operating officer Itai Frieberger, said that efforts would continue to improve the product in order to make it ever more competitive in a saturated European market. He also disclosed that further licensing in more recently emerging European regulatory jurisdictions was being considered.
"We see a lot of opportunities in the sports betting market and this is just the beginning of our product," Freiberger said. "I think there is much opportunity here for 888Sports to take advantage of market conditions. We are opening up more territories and allowing more people to find what they're looking for when it comes to Sport, and we're ramping up marketing spend on the vertical."

Brian Cullingworth

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
