Betsson profits grow, bigger workforce needed

Betsson, whose Malta-base employs a strong 750+ workforce, saw revenue rise by almost 25% in the last quarter of 2014, a new quarterly record of €86 Million. 2014 overall figures leaped forward in part thanks to last February’s acquisition of the Oranje and Kroon Casino brands. Poker profits, in contrast, fell by 20% due to Poker’s declining popularity in Betsson-friendly markets, specifically Scandinavian.

In light of this steady growth, Ulrik Bengtsson (Betsson CEO) argued that the gaming sector in Malta was finding it difficult to hire suitable candidates with the right talent. As a result, with the support from the University of Malta, this summer, paid internships will be offered to University students reading degrees in statistics, computing and data sciences.

Bengtsson went on to elaborate, “We have found it very hard to recruit in this field and can easily absorb those who are qualified. The interesting thing is that many of the students do not realise that these skills are required for i-gaming. It is not intuitive that we also require statisticians and data scientists.”

Internship applications will be open until the 20th February, 2015. The outcome will be announced by March same year. Further information may be collected by emailing Betsson at [email protected]
