Having already established themselves as one of Europe’s fastest growing companies, online lottery betting leaders Lottoland are now making their mark in the tech investor scene.
From just a handful of employees in May 2013, the Gibraltar based business now has over 230 staff and is predicting revenues that will beat the £100m achieved in 2015 by more than 150%.
2016 has proved to be a landmark year for the company, with the launch of new markets in Australia and the Republic of Ireland, a raft of new product launches and sustained marketing campaigns, both above and below the line, in territories including the UK, Germany and Sweden accelerating growth to unprecedented levels. Australia, in particular, proved to be a staggering success, with 250,000 new customers joining just 48 hours after launch.
Such impressive growth has seen the investor community sit up and take notice, with Lottoland now being a highly sought-after attendee at the world’s leading start up and tech conferences.
Having already taken centre stage at the renowned Bits & Pretzels Founders Festival in Munich and November’s prestigious JP Morgan European Growth Stars Internet Media and Tech Conference, Lottoland were at it again last Friday (November 11th) with CEO Nigel Birrell and Chief Strategy Officer Elicia Bravo grabbing the limelight at London’s NOAH Conference.
According to Bravo, Lottoland’s star turn at Noah – Europe’s preeminent event bringing together internet CEO’s, investors and leading execs in search of the latest proven concepts – highlights the excitement that is building around the company.
“We are actively disrupting a $300 billion dollar industry and it’s great to see that there is real excitement growing in the investor community in regard to our offering.
“In less than 3 months we have presented at 3 different, exclusive events, to hundreds of investors and start-ups. Our message has been simple and the response has been very positive.
“Both the tech and investor community are very excited by what Lottoland has to offer and our growth to date.
“We have a proven model for success that has driven our business forward to the point that in just over 3 years we’re rubbing shoulders with Europe’s leading start-ups.
“It’s an honour for us to be part of such a select clique, but as far as we are concerned it’s just the beginning. We’ve got a talented, creative and ingenious team that have brought us this far and I’m very excited to see where the next few years will take us.”
