Unibet expanding in Europe
Stronger position in the British online industry
Unibet has been looking to increase its share of the United Kingdom’s online gambling market for some time so with the acquisition of Stan James’ online casino and sports betting business it can finally do this. The United Kingdom’s online gambling market is believed to be worth about 2.7 billion pounds this year. Stan James represents a good opportunity for Unibet to expand within a regulated market and even with the imposition of the United Kingdom’s point of consumption tax Stan James’ position is strong so far in 2015. It had been feared in the online gambling industry that the British government’s introduction of the point of consumption tax would have a detrimental effect on investment in the online casino sector. The tax is payable on online gambling transactions no matter where the player is physically present.
