IBID expansion in the gaming industry
As a renowned organization in the field of land-based casinos, IBID has taken the right decision by foraying into the trending online gambling sector. The strategic leadership at IBID is fully convinced that the younger generation is inclined to play casinos online rather than waiting in queues over casino tables. At this vantage juncture, Pragmatic Play made its emphatic entry into the IBID portfolio. The reputed provider of mobile and PC based casino games found the acquisition beneficial in every respect.

IBID is on a growth-bound path to widen its existing portfolio of gaming companies. Acquiring companies with high potential for scaling up has been the driver behind IBID strategic acquisitions. The case of Pragmatic Play is a classic example of the same. What sets apart the IBID-Pragmatic Play alliance is that it is mere buying out of shares, but it is a comprehensive growth road map with a strong foresight for contingencies. A multi-pronged approach for wealth maximization is unearthed by looking at the acquisition highlights as under:
- While the acquisition is all set to break even in the short run, the broader vision is to generate sustainable returns for all stakeholders
- The commercial success of any acquisition depends on the quality of management team, more importantly during and subsequent to the integration phase. Pragmatic Play employs quality talent which is further fortified by IBID
- Drawing on its own expertise as well as a team of vibrant management strategists, IBID can play the role of an enabler, enriching and empowering Pragmatic Play to further the interests of both the organizations in the online gaming sector.
