Bwin shrugs off Eurozone turmoil

Bwin.party Digital, the world's biggest listed online gaming company, shrugged off economic worries to post a rise in third-quarter revenue, helped by the launch of new games in Italy and strong growth in its casino division. The Gibraltar-based company, whose brands include bwin, PartyPoker.com, PartyCasino.com and Foxy Bingo, said total revenues grew three per cent to €201.1m (£172.4m) in the third quarter. The company, which offers up to 30,000 bets daily across more than 90 sports, said it had also benefited from a bar on US website Full Tilt Poker in April following charges of illegal gambling. Bwin.party said current trading was robust and in line with management's expectations.
