The three operations have a total of 122,000 registered players and a network of around 400 affiliates, and boasts net revenue in the last 12 months of Euro 350,000, with assets worth Euro 4.2 million – Euro 2 million in cash.
Announcing the agreement, Play Hippos CEO Christian Bönnelyche said:
“The group will now have three new casinos that have a good selection of games. We have brands that provide positive cash flow directly and give us a great opportunity to cross-sell as Play Hippos database is inactive.
Nevi-owned subsidiary B18 Invest is selling its 72 percent stake in FGG but wants to play an active role in Play Hippo and get involved in the company’s future development
