ATHENS, Nov 27 (Reuters) - OPAP, Europe’s fifth-biggest betting firm by revenues, saw its third-quarter net profit rise 18.5 percent, helped by its growing video lottery business.
Net profit in the July-to-September period stood at 39 million euros ($44.10 million), up from 33 million euros in the same period last year, OPAP said. The figure was in line with analysts forecasts.
Last year’s third-quarter net profit was downwardly revised to exclude a one-off gain. ($1 = 0.8844 euros) (Reporting by Angeliki Koutantou Editing by Karolina Tagaris)
