In recent news, LeoVegas posted a 1% revenue drop for Q3 2022.
Total revenue for the year stood at €295.2m, which topped 2021’s total of €292.9m up to the same point and will be far greater by the end of the year.
For LeoVegas, the complete revenue haul for 2021 stood at €391m, which – so long as the Swedish business does not have a nightmare of a Q4 – it should be able to beat come the next set of financial results in early 2023.
