|Graz, Austria, 12/09/2002 - gamebookers.com, one of the leading international online bookmakers, based in Antigua, has successfully entered the Austrian market by founding a subsidiary based in Graz and applying for an Austrian betting licence. The licence was granted by the Government of Styria.|
While the majority of Austrian bookmakers “emigrate” to tax havens such as Cyprus or Gibraltar, gamebookers.com has chosen to move its business onshore in Austria to guarantee its clients a maximum of reliability and seriousness.
Up until now, the central point of gamebookers' international corporate strategy was the achievement and maintenance of product leadership in online betting. A strategy that clearly helped to push gamebookers.com into the Premier League of worldwide operating online bookmakers. The group has a current betting turnover of more than EUR 10m per month and over 60,000 customers after just 2 years of online operation. The group's Austrian unit,
Gamebookers GmbH, targets at market share of least 20% in Austria in the mid term.
gamebookers.com represents an 'one stop shop' concept for bettors, covering a huge range of bets on every major sporting event worldwide, as well as on the latest political and social issues, combined with an in-depth
information source. Betting services are provided in 18 currencies and 3 languages - English, German and Spanish. Based and licensed in Austria and Antigua & Barbuda (W.I.), the company enjoys a betting tax-free status. The
group has over 60,000 customers worldwide and handles annually over 8m bets. Gamebookers Ltd. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Gatcombe Park Ventures, London.
