“Geographical and product balance delivers operational strength”


“Unibet’s performance in the third quarter demonstrates the operational strength of our geographical and product balance. We have continued to grow our business, especially in Southern and Eastern Europe.”
“The roll-out of bingo across Europe has continued and we have added Travnet Live Racing to our product portfolio.”
“Live betting showed a continued growth and gave an important addition to the sports book and is now counted as an important key differentiator in our offering.”
“Given the strong growth still in the online gambling market it is at the end of October still difficult to determine what impact the actual financial situation in the world has on our business model,”
says Petter Nylander, CEO of Unibet.
