Betsson Perch Investments AB, a subsidiary of Betsson AB, has acquired 50 percent of the shares in the software development company JDP Tech Ltd, which owns a proprietary technology platform for handling of LatAm payments. The consideration payable for the shares amounts to €8.8 million (£7.6 million/US $10.6 million). This allows Betsson to secure customer payment flows for the continued expansion in Latin America.

Furthermore, Betsson is in the process of obtaining a license for both the Province and City of Buenos Aires.
“LatAm is a strategically important region for Betsson and we see great future potential for the company there. With this strategic investment Betsson is well-positioned to further expand our business in the LatAm iGaming market”, comments Pontus Lindwall, CEO of Betsson AB.
