Sports betting slump hinders Italian recovery, Stephen Carter at Casino Choice

Sports betting slump hinders Italian recovery, Stephen Carter at Casino Choice | Poker & eGaming News | Scoop.it

Revenue from gambling on poker, casino, bingo and sports and other products in Italy’s ringfenced online market fell 15% month-over-month during May to €57.5m, from €67.7m the previous month, due mainly to a massive fall in gross gaming revenue (GGR) from fixed-odds sports betting.

 

Hindered by a turnover tax and narrower choice of markets than those on offer from offshore sites, fixed odds sports revenue fell 56% month-over-month to €7.9m, from €18m in April. The regulator will soon allow licensed operators to offer bets on a wider range of events, as well as virtual bets and exchange betting, in an effort to boost the attractiveness of betting on regulated sites for Italian punters.

NTT Docomo buys Winga owner for £187m, Tom Victor EGR Magazine

NTT Docomo buys Winga owner for £187m, Tom Victor EGR Magazine | Poker & eGaming News | Scoop.it

Tokyo-listed mobile carrier NTT Docomo has issued a tender offer of ¥24bn (£187m) to acquire all shares of Winga.it owner Buongiorno.

 

Buongiorno is one of more than 60 companies to have applied for a licence to operate in the Spanish market, and could find out whether or not it has been successful as soon as 1 June following a recent announcement from the country’s egaming regulator.

 

Winga is using poker platform from Ongame and the casino platform from Playtech in both Italy and France.

 

The Winga.fr site launched in January 2011, while this year saw the company extend its French-facing offering to include poker.

 

As well as offering egaming under the Winga brand, mobile specialist Buongiorno offers music via the play.me brand and mobile payment services via cashlog.com.

 

According to TechCrunch, Buongiorno currently employs 848 people and in its last full-year results reported €228.6m in revenues and an operating profit of €7 million. NTT Docomo’s fourth-quarter results earlier this month revealed revenues of ¥69.3bn (£539m) for the three months ended 31 March.
