Interwetten governance were pleased to announce a further consecutive year of growth for its operations, despite having to withdraw its business from the markets of the UK, Hungary, Portugal and Bulgaria due to unfavourable market conditions.

Werner Becher CEO of Interwetten noted that operator’s strong performance in Greece, a betting market it had re-entered in 2015

“The return to Greece helped Interwetten to diversify its market structure and pushed our revenue growth additionally.”

Becher also pointed to the operator’s stabilised market share in Spain with casino revenues for up by 68 per cent in the fourth quarter of 2015.

“Although the Spanish market is very competitive, and although Interwetten is not investing as much money into marketing as some of its competitors do, Interwetten successfully defended its top-10 market position [in Spain] in 2015.

“As there are not too many regulated markets in Europe offering economically reasonable conditions for online gaming providers, we pursue a long-term strategy in Spain being part of our core markets
