Revenues in Greece’s online gambling business have fallen by 405 during the first 5 months of the year as the COVID-19 pandemic halted all major sports around the world.
The Hellenic Gaming Commission (HGC) released figures show that in the first five months of 2020 revenues generated stood at €150 million, showing a 40% drop compared to the same period in 2019.
All the major online operators saw falls in their revenues during that period such as Stoixman, Bet365 and Sportingbet.
However smaller capital share operators did rather well as they offered other gambling opportunities to players such as NetBet, but the big winner was PokerStars as players took to playing poker and casino games while sporting events were all closed down. PokerStars actually doubled their revenues in the 5 months of the year compared to 2019.
