The evening of 30th January saw the opening of the new Betsson building in Ta' Xbiex named the Betsson Experience Centre.
The event hosted by Betsson Group CEO Ulrik Bengtsson, was marked by an evening of celebrations organised at the Betsson building itself and later spilling over into a marquee built purposely for the event, across the road from the building on Ta Xbiex Seafront.
The new Betsson oﬃces were christened in style as a number of dignitaries attended the event including Finance Minister, Hon. Dr. Edward Zammit Lewis and Education & Employment Minister,
Hon. Mr Evarist Bartolo. Pontus Lindwall one of the original founders of Betsson, now Chairman at Betsson AB, Magnus Silverberg CEO of Betsson AB and representatives from the Lotteries & Gaming Authority were also present.
The Betsson Experience Centre is an important landmark in the journey of Betsson Group; the investment and planning behind the beautiful spaces of this new 8 storey building are a testimony to the Company's commitment to its employees, to the island of Malta and also to the strong Company Culture that is in constant evolution.
The employees and the management at Betsson later joined the party in the marquee which turned out to be an entertaining evening including a special appearance by pop band Icona Pop; ﬂown to Malta purposely to enhance the celebration of a new chapter in the Betsson story.
The Group has invested heavily in its Malta presence and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future; the building cost approximately 5.5 Million Euros to complete. Before embarking on the project to construct the Betsson building, the team was spread over 3 oﬃces, all of which are now working from this new building overlooking the beautiful ta' Xbiex marina where the views are breathtaking.
Betsson is today the largest iGaming company in Malta. It has seen rapid growth since opening its ﬁrst Malta oﬃce in 2005 with only 30 employees. Today Betsson employs almost 600 people in Malta, making a total of 1000 employees in its oﬃces around the world. The new building has plenty of room for growth and has been built with the team's future requirements in mind.
