Betsson CEO Pontus Lindwall said that the company is shifting to meet the changing landscape due to the Covid-19 pandemic, focusing on other products to help revenues. "However, we now see a shift to sports such as table tennis and esports, it is an interesting increase in breadth which could be long term positive," Lindwall said. "We have added further events to our offering and believe that when sporting events gradually re-enter the betting market, our sportsbook offering will be even more powerful than before."
