British online gambling group bet365 has turned in an impressive performance through 2012, reports the publication ‘This is Staffordshire', noting that the internet gambling firm saw customers wager a record GBP12 billion in bets, boosting pre-tax profits by 22 percent to GBP 116.5 million.
The total amount wagered by customers in bets increased by 45 percent from GBP 8.54 billion to GBP 12.4 billion as sports gamblers increasingly used the online and mobile channels to place bets.
The company paid out GBP 40 million in dividends, with owners and founders Denise Coates and her father Peter collecting GBP 23.1 million of that.
Profits were reduced slightly by the company's share of Stoke City FC's losses which totalled GBP 5.8 million – down from GBP 7.2 million a year earlier.
