France Pari Doubles Revenues In First Half

World Cup helps boost growth at French online bookmaker

French online bookmaker France Pari has reported on a half year that has seen revenues double, thanks to a boost from World Cup football betting and increases in mobile usage.
In H1-2014 revenues doubled to Euro 9 million compared with the same period last year, with the World Cup football competition in Brazil generating an additional Euro 1.2 million for the group, enabling it to achieve net income of Euro 190,000 on margins of 20.2 percent over the half-year.
Expanded usage of the France Pari mobile channels also assisted in building revenues, with an increase of 30 percent in mobile wagering posted.
France Pari's B2B business appears to have flourished as well, with income from royalties and licensing fees rising from Euro 250,000 in H1-2013 to Euro 500,000 this year as three new clients launched on the platform – Zeturf.fr and .it, and Eurotierce in Belgium.
Mobile B2B activity is also progressing well, with clients like Genybet and Netbet reporting improved performances, and Android apps about to launch in the second half of 2014.

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.
