Fortuna’s accepted bets up to EUR 411.9m in H1 2015

Fortuna Entertainment Group reported accepted bets totalling EUR 411.9m in H1 2015, up 23.6% y/y. Gross prizes grew 1.9% to EUR 67.1m. EBITDA decreased by 39.1% to EUR 9m and net profit grew 46.9% to EUR 4.8m. Fortuna Entertainment Group’s CEO and baord of directors member Petr Widerstrom has stated that the achieved results were influenced primarily by high demand for online bets and the cancelation of the manipulation fee in Slovakia. According to Mr. Widerstorm, y/y comparisons are influenced by lack of big sport events in 2015.
