The SOFTSWISS Game Aggregator has shared its preliminary results for 2021. The data presented reflects the results from January through December 2021.
In comparison to 2020, all of the SOFTSWISS Game Aggregator financial results have more than doubled. Particularly noteworthy is the Average Monthly GGR, which totaled 200 million EUR (USD 226.7M) compared to EUR 88 million in 2020. In turn, the average bet sum exceeded the EUR 5 billion per month mark compared to 2.2 billion EUR a year earlier, demonstrating growth of 130%.
Annual GGR and the Bet Sum also increased significantly. If in January 2021 GGR capped at EUR 130 million, in December it was over the EUR 250 million mark. The same trend continues with the sum of bets which almost doubled: from EUR 3.3 billion to 6.5 billion. This can relate to the fact that in 2021 the SOFTSWISS Game Aggregator began to deliver games to several new markets: Japan, Brazil, Argentina, India, and Tunisia.
Andrey Starovoitov, COO at SOFTSWISS, commented: "These figures are the natural result of the work done over the past year by the SOFTSWISS Team on bringing in new clients and partners. Since January we have more than doubled in size: 500+ professionals have joined SOFTSWISS, which couldn't help but affect our end-of-year results. We're developing the best solutions from the iGaming industry every day to help our partners build successful businesses. I am very happy with the results achieved and expect even more success in the new year!"
Among all currencies, crypto made up about 40% in 2021, while in 2020 it was only 20%. Bitcoin showed the main increase, taking fifth place in the ranking of the most used currencies in 2021. It remains the most popular cryptocurrency among all SOFTSWISS Game Aggregator operators:
Starovoitov added: "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."
In the past year, the SOFTSWISS Game Aggregator partnered with over 60 clients and 20+ game providers. At present, the SOFTSWISS Game Aggregator offers entertainment content from 170+ game studios, over 11,800 games, and 3,000+ games optimized for cryptocurrency.

"The common trend is that during the long lockdown in 2020 and the continuing pandemic in 2021, people have been forced to spend a lot of time at home, including at the computer. Isolation and decreased social activity have influenced a rise in demand for online entertainment. We can see this in the steady increase in the number of bets throughout the year. Observing this trend, we tried to provide our clients with the most diverse content to keep the audience interested and engaged. I can say with confidence that we have succeeded," summed up Tatyana Kaminskaya, Head of Game Aggregator Department at SOFTSWISS.
