The 2022 FIFA World Cup, which accounted for 37.5% of all sports betting during the winter tournament, played a big role in attracting players. The average bet per tournament was 74 euros, and the most popular match was the final between Argentina and France. However, the most profitable in terms of betting was the match between Morocco and Spain.
GGR of the bookmaker increased by 485% compared to last year, the total number of bets increased by 795%, and the turnover – by 654%. These impressive numbers highlight that the betting platform opens up an important growth area for SOFTSWISS.
Alexander Kamenetskyi commented on the growth of the product: «We are thrilled that the Sportsbook is growing on all fronts: bets, turnover, profits, and of course, its functionality.
The flexible margin system mastered by our risk team has been a major contributing factor. Twenty new projects and three platforms have also helped us achieve this phenomenal growth. The launch of unique bonuses contributed to the attraction and retention of players in the projects, which also played a significant role.»
In particular, 2022 became a landmark year thanks to the integration with the SOFTSWISS gaming aggregator, which allowed operators to receive two high-quality products using one high-speed connection.
