£600,000 - The amount that one fortunate punter scooped after winning the jackpot on Playtech’s Age of the Gods Live Roulette. It means that the omni-channel title has now paid out over £1m in prizes since its launch just two weeks ago.

£20,000 - The costs that Current world snooker number 10 Stuart Bingham was forced to pay after he was found guilty of breaching betting rules. The former world champion was also banned from the sport for six months.

11% - Growth reported by Bettson compared to the same period last year, nonetheless, the group’s CEO Pontus Lindwall still maintained that the overall level of growth for the period was ‘unsatisfactory’. Lindwall highlighted a lack of development from NetPlay, a UK interactive gaming operator acquired by Betsson back in April, as cause for concern.
