New Gaming Mergers & Acquisitions

This is an important loss for the Swedish company, yet is not something cry for as their betting software seems to be one of the most complete, with features and management tools hard to be found with other providers. Besides, their B2B teams is hard at work signing new deals and keeping current clients like 888sports competitive.

On the other side, some other companies are still looking for an organic growth, investing in their own projects and developing new services and products for their clients. One such case is NovaCorp Net which has just pushed new services live like a soccer prediction tool, offered free of charge, and based on an advanced algorithm learning from various stats and past results.

As the market evolves, new mergers and acquisition transform the industry, making the changes from the past 20 years hard to imagine. Many of these are due to market maturity and also cost of operations and new technological advancements which are required to keep pace with the trends.
