Muscat’s visit to Betsson later this morning: Betsson to stay

Published: June 6, 2017 at 9:25am

An email circulated to Betsson employees early this morning reassures them that Betsson will stay on in Malta despite escalating rumours of plans to pull out, which have caused consternation.

The email says: “As Malta’s largest iGaming company, rumours about us are always going to be around in one way or another. The latest one is that Betsson Group intends to leave Malta, which is absolutely untrue. Betsson has been in Malta since 2004, we have recently celebrated the joining of the 1,000th employee and we have opened a second office in Malta, the Betsson E2 Hub.”
It continues:  “We have grown into a successful international company, but our base is in Malta and we aim to stay. I know for a fact that our CEO and President Ulrik Bengtsson will make that clear to Prime Minister Muscat in today’s meeting.”
Well, that’s a relief.
