Name change for Mangas Gaming

29 November 2010

France’s Mangas Gaming SAS, the operator behind online poker site EverestPoker.com and virtual sportsbook BetClic.com, has announced that it is changing its name to BetClic Everest Group.

The Paris-based operator led by Nicolas Beraud stated that the rebranding marks a ‘new phase in its history’ and reflects the firm’s ‘two spearhead brands’ BetClic.com for online sportsbetting and EverestPoker.com for virtual poker.

BetClic Everest revealed that the name change ‘embodies the group's values and ambition as an international online gaming operator with the interests of our twelve million customers at heart providing an expert and secure sportsbetting, poker, horseracing and casino offering’.

“At a time when the markets in Europe are being regulated, we wanted with our shareholders to go one step further,” said Beraud.

“For our customers, these are now the two brands of reference shaping the very identity of the group, a sign that the customer is at the heart of our development strategy for the years ahead.”
