Unibet Delivers Another Strong Performance

Unibet's Q2 earnings up 38 percent to GBP 16.7 million on the back of revenues of GBP 77.1 million

The Unibet online gambling group has delivered another sterling set of results for Q2-2014, reporting:
* Earnings up 38 percent to GBP 16.7 million
* Revenue up 24 percent to GBP 77.1 million.
* Active customers up more than 33 percent quarter-on-quarter at 610,000.
* World Cup football betting made up GBP 16 million of the company's GBP 31.9 million Q2 overall sports betting revenues.
* Mobile wagering contributed 47 percent of overall sportsbook revenue, and live betting delivered 64.6 percent of turnover.
* Continued success in Western Europe, which provided GBP 16.2 million, or over half sports betting revenues – almost doubling in terms of y-o-y growth.
* Nordic activity rising – up 22 percent to GBP 12.2 million.
* On the negative side, Central, Eastern and Southern European markets declined 21 percent to just GBP 2.6 million.
* Gaming business (including online casino and poker) increased by 15 percent to GBP 45.2 million, but the poker element lagged, declining 45 percent y-o-y to GBP 1.7 million, a situation the company hopes to reverse with a new standalone poker offering designed strongly for the recreational player.
Current trading reported by the company shows an increase in revenue of 7 percent over the second quarter average despite a massive Mega Fortune win of Euro 5.8 million on early in July (see previous InfoPowa reports).

Infopowa

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.
