Fortuna To Acquire Gaming Systems Provider

Gambling operator has not revealed consideration agreed for acquisition of Hattrick Sports Group

Central European online and land gambling group Fortuna Entertainment has announced an acquisition deal that will see it take over gaming systems provider Hattrick Sports for an undisclosed consideration.
Fortuna management said in a statement Thursday that the acquisition will boost its position as one of the largest licensed multi-channel operators in the European region, and includes Hattrick's Romanian betting subsidiary Casa Pariurilor.
Other subsidiaries enabling expansion into Croatia and Spain include bookmaker Prva Sportska Kladionica PSK and an interest in Spain's Luckia gambling enterprise.
Commenting on the deal, Fortuna CEO Per Widerström, said:
"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".

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.
