Bet-at-home Delivers Impressive Fy2013 Earnings

Despite no significant sporting events and continued impact of sports betting tax

Betclic Everest Group-owned online sports betting and gaming operator Bet-At-Home has reported what it describes as "continued success" reporting a 600 percent increase in full year 2013 earnings.

– Gaming volume amounted to Euro 1,834.8 million (2012: Euro 2,039.8 million), 10.0 percent below 2012 due to the higher volume during the European Football Championship in Poland and the Ukraine.

– Sports betting tax introduced in Germany in July 2012 increased to Euro 11 million (2012: Euro 9.9 million) having an impact on net gaming revenue which amounted to Euro 74.7 million (2012: Euro 75.5 million).
