CEO Per Norman reported on the company's plans to launch a sportsbook in 2016 to leverage the cross-marketing opportunities with the company's casino players.
“The online casino Mr Green increased its game win by 20.3 percent in 2015 and experienced growth at more than double the rate prevailing on the market," Norman said.
"The Board of Mr Green Ltd has resolved to broaden Mr Green’s offering through the launch of a sportsbook during 2016. This is a natural expansion of our offering since a large number of our current casino customers also play some form of sports betting.”
