The bookmaker is satisfied with the way business is going and has reported a 52% net daily income from nationally and/or taxed markets. Bwins mobile betting site is still on the rise, bringing in 25% of the daily net revenue.

Launching a new poker client and entering the newly open New Jersey online gambling market have also proven to be great for business. Company representatives say the New Jersey investment cost between $9.6million and $13.7 million, but these products should bring in great earnings.
