Good Game Limited offloads esports news site

20 May 2019

Good Game Limited, the online casino affiliate organisation behind popular comparison site Bojoko.com, has sold its esports news asset Eurheilu.com for an undisclosed sum.

The site has been purchased by Esports Media Solutions and will allow Good Game to reinvest and fully focus on driving growth in Bojoko.

Eurheilu.com was launched in early 2016 and is updated daily with news, features, interviews, streams and guides about the thriving esports industry.

It has proved particularly popular among enthusiasts in Finland and other Nordic countries as esports continues to grow rapidly across the region.

Aleksi Halsas, co-founder of Esports Media Solutions, said: “Our Eurheilu.com acquisition supports our strategy in Finland well and we are extremely excited about the opportunities it presents us.”

The sale of Eurheilu.com comes a little over a year after Good Game sold its network of Finnish online casino comparison sites to XLMedia for a total consideration of €15 million.

Good Game now operators just one site, Bojoko.com, which is being positioned as the Trip Advisor of the online casino world.

Bojoko, which was launched in 2017, allows operators and suppliers to upload their own listings with players able to leave their own ratings and reviews.

It has proved a hugely popular concept with operators, suppliers and players alike, with more than 320 casinos and suppliers listed to date.

Joonas Karhu, chief business officer at Good Game Limited, said: “We have spent the past few years building Eurheilu.com into a popular and thriving esports information site and community.

“But as we continue to invest more time and resources into establishing Bojoko as the most popular online casino comparison site in the UK and beyond, the time was right to sell the brand.

“We are thrilled that Esports Media Solutions will be running the site moving forwards as their passion and expertise will take it to the next level.”
