Betfair Games, Betfair Poker, Betfair Casino and Betfair's multiples and accumulator products, are hosted from Malta, which is an area that has seen significant growth and investment. The company is also developing automated price feeds to third parties, establishing white-label exchanges and through its own Betfair Mobile product.
