LeoVegas has released its app in the Swedish, Danish and Spanish Google Play Store, becoming the first operator to pass the approval process and go live via the digital distribution service in these markets.
This comes after Gustaf Hagman, president and CEO, LeoVegas, last month noted that “on the tailwinds of a strong 2020, we are now looking forward to a year with many exciting growth initiatives and an even stronger customer offering.”
As a result, this latest move ensures that players of the online gambling operator in Sweden, Denmark, and Spain, that have an Android device, will be able to download the group’s app and utilise its igaming offering.
Furthermore, the firm also states that this opens up new possibilities for players that are using Android, with these devices making up roughly 45 per cent of the mobile operating system’s market share in Sweden, 38 per cent in Denmark and 90 per cent in Spain.
“Once again, we have positioned ourselves as leaders in our industry and make it easier for our customers to get a superior mobile product and this will enhance the customer experience” commented Mattias Wedar, chief product and technology officer at LeoVegas.
“It was a tight deadline as Google only announced this possibility officially in late January, but with a great effort of all teams involved we were able to make it happen not only on time, but ahead of competitors”.
Last month, LeoVegas’ reported full year revenue growth of nine per cent to €387.4m (2019: €356m), gross profit increased to €262.3m (2019: €237.1m,) and EBITDA finished up at €51.8m (2019: €49.5m). Preliminary revenue in January amounted to €32.5m (2020: €29.9m), representing growth of nine per cent.
