I'm a bit shocked that sportsbetting is not the main recourse for 888...always have been knowing them as one off the decent bookies but obviously they're more in to their casino business now.

To be honest, I'm quite surprised that they're doing that well. I was never a big fan of theirs, their product didn't speak to me. But I think they're doing well in the regulated markets which is probably a big factor for their revenue.

Yeah I guess you're right blck, I don't think 888 are eligible in too many European countries anyway which could explain the fact that their revenues just in UK are almost equal to that in the rest of the continent, certainly that shouldn't be the case even if we accept the UK's market is by far the largest one.
