Better Collective establishes leading position in German speaking markets with acquisition of Bola Webinformation GmbH (wettbasis.com)

Monday 2nd July, 2018 – Better Collective has completed the acquisition of all shares in Austrian based Bola Webinformation GmbH, including its flagship product Wettbasis.com.

On a proforma basis, the company’s annual revenue in 2017 was approximately 9million EUR and EBITA was approximately 6.5million EUR. The purchase price has been agreed at 36.3million EUR to be paid in cash.

Better Collective, the world’s leading developer of digital platforms for bookmaker information, iGaming communities, and betting tips, has today acquired Bola Webinformation GmbH. This eleventh acquisition is so far the largest acquisition for Better Collective.

Better Collective becomes the leading sports betting affiliate in German speaking markets

Bola Webinformation GmbH, founded in 2008, owns strong brands focused on sports betting, including the flagship product Wettbasis.com, which is the leading affiliate website in the German sports betting market.

On a proforma basis, and after adjustment for certain non-core assets of the business that were divested before completion, the company generated revenues of approximately EUR 9 million and EUR 6.5 million in operating earnings (EBITA) in 2017.

Last year, Better Collective acquired Sportfreunde GmbH, including websites sportwettentest.net and wettfreunde.net, both large sports betting affiliate websites also targeting the German speaking markets. When combined with the portfolio from Bola Webinformation GmbH and Better Collective’s other websites (including bettingexpert.com), Better Collective is now positioned as the market leader in the German speaking markets.

With the recent establishment of a new office in the center of Vienna to house Better Collective’s employees in Austria, the team from Bola Webinformation GbmH will join the existing “Better Collective Vienna” team in these new facilities. A close collaboration with Better Collective’s headquarter in Copenhagen will be established to ensure that synergies are realised successfully and quickly.

The purchase price has been agreed to 36.3 million EUR whereof 30.8 million has been paid in cash upon closing and the remaining part will be paid in cash after 12 months.

Jesper Søgaard, CEO of Better Collective, said:We are truly excited about having reached an agreement with Bola Webinformation GbmH. This is the largest acquisition we have completed, and it is a great first step after our IPO earlier in June, where we raised funds to continue our acquisition strategy. With the acquisition of Bola, we are very pleased that we now take the position as the leading sports betting affiliate in the German speaking markets, a market where we see high growth potential.

Florian Körner, Founder of Bola Webinformation, added: “Speaking on behalf of the founders of Bola Webinformation GmbH, we are very excited that we have been able to conclude the sale of our company to Better Collective, a company we have known well for a long time. We are very proud of the company we have built over the years, and we are happy to see our employees and our products continue in a well-managed company where values and quality are priorities.

Casino Guru and AffPapa join forces to launch a new course on iGaming affiliate management

 

Casino Guru, the leading information source and online casino database, has recently joined forces with AffPapa, the ultimate iGaming directory connecting affiliates and operators, to deliver a brand-new free professional course on affiliate management. The course, titled iGaming Affiliate Management Essentials, is the latest addition to the Casino Guru Academy and aims to contribute to a broader understanding of affiliate management while sharing best practices with the rest of the industry. Designed for everyone looking to enhance their knowledge of the iGaming affiliate landscape, the course caters to both aspiring affiliate managers and seasoned professionals.

With over 6,200 online casinos in its extensive database, Casino Guru is no stranger to affiliate management. Combined with AffPapa’s role as a facilitator in connecting operators and affiliate websites for a fruitful partnership, the course seamlessly combines the expertise of two prominent figures in the iGaming affiliation sector. In as little as 90 minutes, participants of the course can receive a certificate that not only backs up their knowledge of affiliate management essentials but also showcases their commitment to cultivating affiliate management best practices.

The course is structured into three chapters. While the first chapter aims to explain the fundamental principles of affiliate management, the second one incorporates insights from AffPapa, the ultimate iGaming directory, who drew inspiration from the expertise of their seasoned affiliate managers operating affiliate program management services for casinos. The third and final chapter offers a snapshot of activities related to affiliate management from the perspective of affiliate websites. This includes a detailed overview of how Casino Guru approaches affiliate business, including the company’s philosophy, values, and strategic vision when it comes to building and maintaining relationships with affiliates.

Šimon Vincze, Casino Guru’s Head of Sustainable & Safer Gambling, expressed his enthusiasm over the latest release of Casino Guru Academy: “I’m thrilled to announce the launch of this course and finally get it out there! Working with AffPapa has been a fantastic experience, and I’m glad we were able to bring their expertise with affiliate programs into the mix and offer yet another unique point of view. I’m confident that as individuals engage with the content, they’ll not only gain essential insights but also discover innovative approaches that can significantly impact their affiliate path in the future.”

Levon Nikoghosyan, AffPapa’s CEO & Co-Founder, commented: “We are thrilled to announce our collaboration with Casino Guru for the launch of their latest course on iGaming Affiliate Management. The kickoff of our affiliate management service last year was driven by the growing demand from our registered operators, leveraging our expertise in the field. Casino Guru’s commitment to educating the iGaming industry aligns seamlessly with our vision, and we are delighted to contribute our extensive knowledge in affiliate management to enhance this initiative.”

An exciting update accompanies the launch of the course – a brand new look featuring a completely redesigned system that enhances interactivity and flexibility across various devices. This marks a unique opportunity to witness the difference firsthand, as the revamped design will soon be applied to older courses as well. With the latest course now available online, Casino Guru Academy invites participants to uncover the world of iGaming affiliate management through the combined lens of Casino Guru and AffPapa.

Catena Media launches online sports betting affiliation in Vermont

 

Catena Media, one of North America’s largest sports betting affiliates, launches online sports betting affiliation in Vermont as the north-eastern state opens for licensed sports wagering.

Vermont’s Department of Liquor and Lottery selected three operators to go live on 11 January.

All Catena Media’s national brands are carrying strong Vermont content to coincide with the launch. Complementing this coverage is content published by the group’s media partners, which include NJ.com and TheSportingNews.com.

Vermont, a small state with an adult population of 0.5 million, is the last of the New England states to allow online sports betting and is the first new market to open in North America in 2024. The next slated state is North Carolina, which is expected to launch legal sports betting in the coming months.

Ryan Harper, Catena Media’s Vice President for North America, said: “Initial interest from both the industry and sports bettors in Vermont is strong. Vermonters have enjoyed online daily fantasy sports products and horse-race wagering so are no strangers to the online market.”

Vermont expands Catena Media’s operational footprint in North America to more than 28 US states and Canadian provinces.

iGB Affiliate announce One Hundred Shoreditch as new HQ Hotel

 

The organising team responsible for iGB Affiliate has announced One Hundred Shoreditch as its new HQ Hotel for February’s event (6-9 February, ExCeL London).

Located in a prominent position on fashionable Shoreditch High Street, One Hundred Shoreditch is an acclaimed independent 258 room hotel offering a choice of places to eat and drink including Seed Library, an attractive rooftop bar and terrace offering panoramic views of the London skyline, a coffee shop, and the Lobby Bar which hosts a curated programme of weekly DJs alongside £10 cocktails. The venue offers five meeting and event spaces including the floor-to-ceiling glass One Hundred Room.

Announcing the new HQ Hotel, iGB Affiliate’s Naomi Barton said: “We were looking for a hotel close to ExCeL and that would connect with the unique personality of the Affiliate community.

“I have to say that One Hundred Shoreditch could have been designed with affiliates in mind! It’s as sassy as hell with great facilities, a roof top bar with amazing views of East London and it’s situated in the social heart of the vibrant East End. The bedrooms and suites provide headspace and calm in contrast to the energy of the ultra-cool hotel bars.

“I am confident One Hundred Shoreditch will resonate with show attendees – it will allow guests to socialise, network and hang out together, continuing the unique iGB Affiliate experience.  We have secured 150 rooms which will be allocated on a first come, first served basis, so book now and don’t miss out on the chance to be with your peers and friends!”

She added: “The 2024 edition of iGB Affiliate will be the last held in London prior to our relocation to Barcelona the following year. As a consequence, there will be an iGB Affiliate ‘Farewell to London’ party like no other and we will be celebrating alongside our sister show ICE to ensure that we deliver something exceptional. The farewell party, iGB Affiliate Awards and our new Hotel HQ are all part of the social and networking opportunities which are pivotal to the show experience and make iGB Affiliate so special”.
