Gauselmann XTiP acquires Albers Wettboerse
Albers Wettboerse GmbH is one of Germany’s best-known bookmakers and can look back on a traditional company history. After more than 60 years of parallel operation as a betting provider and operator of wettshops, the family company now decides to continue the operation of the well-established wettshops. In the future, the Albers betting team will work exclusively with the well-known sports competition brand XTiP. As a subsidiary of the family-run Gauselmann Group, XTiP can also draw on the know-how of the internationally operating group and thus further advance its strategic expansion in the sports betting sector.
“With XTiP, we have selected a betting provider whose long-term offer of betting can permanently meet the technological developments and regulatory requirements of the industry”, explain Eiken and Nils Albers, Managing Director of Albers Wettboerse GmbH. They had already been able to convince themselves of the efficiency of the XTiP brand during the very professional conversion phase of the shops.
Thomas Fitzner, Managing Director of XTiP Sportwetten Vertrieb GmbH, is also impressed by the successful cooperation. “With an experienced operator such as Albers Wettboerse GmbH, we have found a partner with whom we can share important experiences and visions together and contribute them to our product in the long term,” says Thomas Fitzner.
The acquisition of Albers Wettboerse GmbH pays for the rapid expansion strategy of the XTiP franchise model. In 2016, the sports betting area of the Gauselmann Group has relaunched, offering with XTiP a sports betting offer of the latest generation, combined with the great emotions of the sports betting. The new XTiP stores impress with their bright, transparent and open design. Guests can watch live sports and latest betting on big screens and their bets on Counter or terminals directly to the shop and beyond via Internet and app ( www.XTiP.de place). In its own shops as well as among the franchise partners, XTiP also employs highly trained and well-informed staff.
