2021 was a very successful year for the crypto gambling industry as many iGaming companies had experienced considerable growth partly thanks to the rise in popularity of gambling with cryptos. One such enterprise is SoftSwiss, with its Game Aggregator’s financial results more than doubling in 2021.
SoftSwiss has shared some of its year-end results and I was astonished to see what they had found. Not only has the company started operating in several new international markets, but also managed to double all of its financial results compared to the previous year.
Perhaps the most impressive accomplishment of all is the massive increase in SoftSwiss’ Average GGR (Gross Gaming Revenue). The monthly average totaled 200 million EUR compared to the 88 million in 2020.
On top of that, the average bet sum smashed the 5 billion EUR monthly mark. The previous year only saw 2.2 billion Euros monthly so this massive jump indicates an incredible growth of 130%.
Andrey Starovoitov, COO at SoftSwiss commented:
SoftSwiss has long been known as a leading B2B crypto solution provider, and this past year has proven that once again. Cryptocurrencies are an obvious trend in the gambling industry, so in our development we put special emphasis on their use. The 2021 figures are the expected result of the company’s strategy to expand its portfolio with crypto products,”
I’ll be sharing a little more of SoftSwiss’ interesting discoveries, but first, let’s have a look at why this company has become so successful.
SoftSwiss is a world-renowned iGaming software and white-label gambling solutions provider with over 300 iGaming brands in its client network. The casinos include some of our top-rated with BitStarz, mBit Casino, 7bit, and King Billy all powered by SoftSwiss.
This industry titan started out in 2009 and later became the very first online gambling company to introduce crypto-optimized casino solutions.
Today, SoftSwiss is recognized as an industry leader in iGaming software development, and its international team consists of over 900 employees worldwide.
Many online casinos powered by SoftSwiss, including some of the company’s partners, also receive various accolades and industry-related awards each year. Even SoftSwiss itself secured 3 award wins at the 5STAR Top 20 Awards in August of 2021.
The SoftSwiss Game Aggregator offers more than 11,000 top-quality casino games from over 170 industry-leading game providers such as BGaming, Pragmatic Play, iSoftbet, Evolution, Platipus, and many more.
What else did SoftSwiss accomplish in 2021?
SoftSwiss’ success throughout 2021 could also relate to the fact that the company started delivering games to various new international markets, with Japan, Brazil, Argentina, India and Tunisia added to the list.
The company had also taken currency use into account when compiling their year-end figures and interestingly enough, crypto made up 40% of the overall currencies used in 2021. The developer’s figures for 2020 showed only 20%, which means that the use of crypto for gambling is skyrocketing.
The most-used crypto of all was, you guessed it – bitcoin! The digital currency actually placed 5th on SoftSwiss’ list of most popular currencies used, and that includes all the fiat currencies, folks.
The top 3 cryptos were:
SoftSwiss also partnered up with over 60 new casino clients in 2021 and has also signed content agreements with 20 new game providers. Some of SoftSwiss’ deals in 2021 include big names, with Playson joining SoftSwiss in June, Blueprint Gaming signing a content agreement in July, and SmartSoft Gaming joining the SS Game Aggregator in October.
