A Swedish-owned gambling company that began in the slot machine business as early as 1963, Betsson’s online gaming empire is based out of Malta. Betsson CEO and President Pontus Lindwall described the venture as a cautious first step to get their feet wet in the burgeoning USA market and establish a presence for their company within the country.
“We have followed the development in the US closely since the possibility of a repeal of the PASPA and have carefully considered ways to enter the market,” Lindwall said in a news release.
“The whole country has a strong culture of gambling and is now experiencing online penetration at (an) accelerated pace, where consumers are transitioning from traditional retail outlets to also now bet on their mobile devices.”
Indications from Betsson are that they will look to enter the market sometime early in 2021. Though new to the American market, Betsson has a well-established reputation in Europe.
