The FTSE 100 listed gambling giant already owns Ladbrokes and Coral, and it's acquisition of Avid Gaming from Middlebrook Investments allows it to expand further into Canada's growing gaming market. Avid's star player is Sports Interaction, Canada's leading betting brand who posted revenues of £44million in 2021.
