“It is not about offering British customers something they’ve already got – its about offering international customers what they’ve
never had.” Mark Blandford, founder.
Our strategy is to attract customers who gamble for leisure and recreation. People who enjoy a flutter. Unlike high-rolling
professionals, our customers bet for entertainment and the excitement of beating the odds. They do not bet to provide an income.
Our systems deliberately limit both individual bet sizes and the total amount bet on any particular sporting event. Our average
bet size is £50. We are a mass-market operator. Our vision is that any customer, anywhere in the world, should be able to bet
via our websites or call-centres without any barrier.
As the world’s leading online sports betting company, both by number of customers and number of transactions, we have
clearly made a good start in achieving this vision. However, in market share terms, there is everything to play for.
With an estimated share of less than one per cent of the world market, we have major opportunities to extend our international
coverage and scale.
The potential market is estimated at 1% of world wide GDP, although clearly this will vary from country to country.
