Bethard granted gaming licence in Ireland
Less than a week after obtaining its Swedish gaming licence, Bethard is announcing yet another national licence.
The Irish Revenue Department has granted Bethard Group a remote bookmaker’s licence. Bethard has thus secured five national gaming licences in Europe. The company is expecting further licences in 2019.
”We are moving forward at an exceptional speed, and I think we have managed to demonstrate our sincerity in our ambition to create Europe’s leading betting company” says Erik Skarp, founder and CEO for Bethard Group. “When I look back at 2018 and what we have managed to achieve in a very short period of time, I am exceptionally proud of the company. In house, we work under the devise “Winners dare more”. I feel that we proof this every day, every month. In less than one year, we have moved from being a small Swedish niche player, to a force that is to be reckon with in a much larger arena. And this is just the beginning.”
Bethard.com is based in Malta and Sweden. The company is currently licensed in Malta, Denmark, the UK, Sweden and now Ireland. Work on a licence for a state licence in Schleswig-Holstein in Germany and Spain has been initiated. The company is actively seeking licences in several other markets and expects to have a licensed presence in most key European markets already by 2020.
It is Bethard’s intention to launch on the Irish’ market after the New Year.
