Canadian players were quick to fall in love with the Nordic Nasdaq-listed enterprise LeoVegas Group, most specifically with their mobile-first online casino facility, which has achieved global fame in a short period of time.

Boasting an impressive selection of completely instant-play slots and other casino games, Nordic operator Leo Vegas has been making huge steps to prominence which has subsequently resulted in fine financial results which have recorded an increase in the first quarter of 2017 year-on-year.

Company’s revenue amounted to $48 million which is a whopping 49% up on the amount generated in the corresponding period last year. Leo Vegas has attributed its recent Denmark launch with one of the key driving aspects behind the increase which made it significant part with 3% of the overall revenue figure.

Chief executive and co-founder of the company states that with stable results are just another step towards LeoVegas’ financial target set at $330 million in revenues by 2018.

We continue to actively evaluate acquisition opportunities, and with a cash position of more than €60 million, we have resources to carry out additional strategic acquisitions going forward.”, he said.
