Gambling giants betting US moves will maintain profits | City & Business | Finance

Shareholders too will search for robustness as they await a White Paper which can add curbs to the sector. Each firms have shielded themselves somewhat from the shaky UK market with strong growth within the US where they benefited from looser betting laws in lots of states. Entain, which also owns Coral, said last month online gaming revenues dipped over the primary half of 2022. Charlie Williams, equity research assistant at Hargreaves Lansdown, said focus will turn to how profits for the period have fared, when it updates the market on Thursday.

He said: “The impact on profit should come to light next week. Attention will likely be focused on whether management consider the previous spending habits will remain intact.

“If not, online revenue could proceed to say no into the long run.”

Concerns over lower demand from punters means shares are about 30 percent lower over the past three months, despite a rebound in retail revenues following the reopening of outlets after pandemic curbs were lifted.

Investors may even be hopeful that a bumper sporting calendar for 2022, including the winter World Cup in Qatar, could provide a much-needed boost to sports betting.

Entain’s US arm BetMGM may even provide solace, with annual growth tipped at greater than 50 percent.

Flutter may even find reason for optimism in its Stateside operations, through its FanDuel sportsbook business.

The gambling firm is about to announce, on Friday, continued strong growth within the division which noted a forty five percent rise in the primary quarter.

It has continued with its heavy investment internationally, with about one billion dollars (£830million) being pumped into promotions, sales and marketing across the US business in the middle of last 12 months.

Flutter also said it has secured regulatory approval for its €1.9billion (£1.6billion) takeover of Italian gaming group Sisal.

That business saw 58 percent sales growth and a 51 percent earnings increase in the primary half of the 12 months.
