With over 1,200 employees, 330 of whom are based at the head office in Liège, and a revenue of approximately 250 million euros in 2019, the Gaming1 Group is leader on the Belgian gaming market (casinos, sports betting and poker) – both land-based and online. They aim to become a global reference in the regulated online gaming market by doubling their activity every five years.

They want to offer their customers and employees a smooth, fun and innovative multichannel experience. Their  mission is therefore to offer the best responsible gaming experience, geared to regulated online markets, while leveraging our technology and a local land-based or affiliate network.

In parallel, each partner – Belgian or international – establishes their own responsible gaming policy and tools.
