Market Policies of Group Plc Group Plc actively targets regulated online gambling markets. As a result, the Group has a the highest portion of its sales from regulated markets of all of the large performance marketing companies within the industry.

Last updated: July 10th 2018

In addition to targeting already regulated markets, the Group will target markets where a clear path to regulation has been communicated by the relevant authorities. As of October 2017, the Group derives approximately 75% of its sales from fully regulated markets and another 20% from Sweden, a market which will be fully regulated as of January 1st, 2019. As a result, virtually all of the Group's revenue is from either regulated or soon to be regulated markets.

When a market is regulated locally, the Group makes every effort to work with the locally licensed gambling operators and to not promote any operators licensed outside of the target jurisdiction.
