"The acquisition of Hattrick Sports Group is a key milestone in Fortuna Entertainment Group's plans of becoming 'The No.1 licensed multichannel betting and gaming operator in Central and Eastern Europe' as well as a testament for our value creation strategy.
"Our intention is to retain the Fortuna and Casa Pariurilor brands in Romania as well as PSK and Hattrick in Croatia. On a regional level, we will combine the best of both companies with the aim to create more exciting offers for our customers, better opportunities for our employees and business partners, thus increasing value for our shareholders".
