ZEturf, France’s only competitor to PMU when it comes to online horse racing pari mutuel, has recorded a 25% rise in stakes in 2013 and carved out 10% market share in the country’s regulated online horse racing tote sector.
The group did not reply to requests for further details as to the actual figures for stakes and gross win in 2013, but the vertical recorded €1.1bn in stakes in 2013 so ZEturf will have recorded approximately €100m in stakes during the 12-month period. The group has also launched its mobile app for iPhone, iPad and Android.
According to its managing director Emmanuel de Rohan Chabot, Zeturf’s volume rose 25% thanks to a higher than average payout ratio of 82% of punters’ bets.
Commenting on his company’s results in 2013, Rohan Chabot said in a statement, “These results confirm the quality of our services and attractiveness of Zeturf games for bettors. From the beginning, our aim has always been to offer them more to improve their gaming experience. This is why we have chosen to pay out 82% of bets on average, where our competitors usually average 76%.”
