OPAP Q3 bounce back hurt by continued lottery declines

Greek leisure approval sees OPAP return to full capacity

Athens-listed gambling group OPAP SA has returned to full operational capacity after reopening its ‘PLAY’ gaming hall venues across Greece.

OPAP has reopened its gaming venues following last week’s approval by the Greek government to allow all leisure enterprises (hotels, restaurants, entertainment venues, etc) to return to business after it eased COVID-19 lockdown restrictions.

The decision has allowed OPAP to return its entire retail portfolio to full operational capacity, having been granted permission by the Greek government to reopen its 3,750 betting shop units and lottery sales points on 14 May.

Updating stakeholders, OPAP detailed that it will reopen all PLAY venues in accordance with Greek public health hygiene and social distancing requirements.

“OPAP remains steadily committed to safeguarding the health and safety of its partners, customers and employees across its stores’ network,” OPAP management explained in its statement.

“In this framework, the company adopts comprehensive preventive measures against the spread of the COVID-19 virus, which fully comply with the operating rules established by the competent authorities.”
