A GROUP WITH GLOBAL SCOPE

In 2012, Blip became part of the Betfair Group, based in London. Then, in early 2016, Betfair joined with Paddy Power, to become one of the largest and fastest-growing online betting and gaming operators in the world. In 2020 the company merged with the Stars Group. Today we are part of the Flutter Entertainment Group.

With operations in more than 100 markets, annual revenues of over £6 billion, and over 17 million customers, we’re a global player. Despite this, we’ve never lost our bold approach, will for innovation, or our desire to keep reinventing the industry, whilst keeping our start-up work environment and mentality.

AMAZING OFFICES

A nap room. Video games. Roaming scooters. Free food. Organic garden.
An auditorium with a capacity for more than 300 people.
It’s no wonder our office was officially crowned the Best Workplace by Visão-Expresso Magazine in 2017, 2018, and 2019!

FAIR GAME

Here at Blip, we know that a fair-minded and inclusive workplace creates more engaged employees, and brings more diversity of perspectives and opinions, which generates a stronger, better organization for all of us.

Being spread over 20 offices and having more than 75 different nationalities, we understand the importance of valuing each employee’s unique experiences, perspectives, and points of view. To continue to promote this, we’ve created ‘Fair Game’, a team that helps to create and maintain a level playing field for all. Diversity and Inclusion are part of our DNA.

WHY ARE WE DOING IT?

For ourselves: There’s no escaping the fact that diverse teams consistently outperform homogeneous teams. Talent and capability are not found in one particular demographic. What’s more, having a good mix makes for a more fun, interesting and inspiring place to work.

For our customers: A diverse workplace is better placed to understand customer needs and wants, which makes our outputs better, no matter where you work.

For our industry: As an industry leader, it is important that we continuously strive to maintain and grow a diverse and inclusive environment whilst also ensuring that we set the standards in ethical conduct and corporate responsibility.

OUR HISTORY

How did we get to where we are today? With hard work, boldness, and an innovative spirit — plus a little bit of mischief.

The story of Flutter is a coming together of betting companies who never stopped creating new and exciting ways for customers to bet on what they love.

BRAND POWER

We are part of Flutter Entertainment, a global sports betting, gaming and entertainment provider for over 17 million customers worldwide.

Having merged with The Stars Group in 2020, Flutter Entertainment now has a host of brands that sit under it including Paddy Power, Betfair, Sky Betting and Gaming, PokerStars, Full Tilt Timeform, Oddchecker, Sporting Life, SportsBet, Bet Easy in Australia, FOX Bet, TVG and FanDuel in the US, amongst others.

Across the globe, Flutter employs over 14,000 people across 20 offices and over 600 retail sites. We pride ourselves on being a responsible operator, committed to making a positive contribution to the communities we operate within.

Betfair operates globally and gives online sports betting customers an unparalleled offer with its market-leading Exchange and Sportsbook providing consistent value, choice and innovation. We are well known for our insight-led approach to marketing and communicating with our customers around the world.

Paddy Power operates both online and retail in the UK and Ireland, where we are one of the most popular sports betting brands. Our business is underpinned by an easy-to-use betting app, one of the most vibrant retail estates in the sector, and a marketing operation that is globally renowned for a distinct brand of mischief.

TVG is a broadcaster that beams horseracing live into a combined 60 million homes across the US as well as operating an online betting network active in over 30 states. We are driving the industry forward through innovative, high-quality broadcasting and market-leading promotional offers around US horseracing.

Sportsbet operates online-only and is the market-leading brand in the fast-growing Australian online sports betting market. Our leading position is underpinned by innovative products, disruptive marketing and consistent promotional generosity around key sports events.

Timeform has launched the careers of some of the horseracing media’s biggest names. We deliver the best sports data and up-to-the-minute info on horse and greyhound racing. Which is why we’re gaining more and more clients every year, from newspapers to betting operators. Always driving forward new ideas like the launch of one of horseracing’s most popular apps, we combine journalistic creativity with cutting-edge technology.

DRAFT is an early-stage operator in the US Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) market. DFS operates a bit like Fantasy Football in the UK, but is played for money and over shorter timeframes. DRAFT is based in New York and operates its games with a ‘Snake Draft’ system, which is quick, mobile friendly and fairer to the recreational customer.

Since 2007, Airton Risk Management has offered financial security for parties with exposure related to on field sporting performance. We enable our clients to have financial certainty and enable them to offset any potential future financial exposure. Services include; player bonus cover for sports clubs and sponsors, conditional rebate cover for retailers, revenue protection related to poor performance, incentives for event promotion, and cover for skills-based contests.

FanDuel The driving force behind the rise in daily fantasy sports in the US over the past 10 years, with over 8 million customers. Since the US Supreme Court gave individual states the right to regulate sports betting in May 2018, FanDuel has launched sportsbooks in 7 US states, offering a market-leading online and retail proposition. FanDuel also offers online gaming and advance deposit wagering.

PokerStars is the home of poker and the largest poker site in the world. It has dealt more than 200 billion hands and hosted more than a billion online tournaments while sponsoring some of the biggest live poker events. PokerStars Casino is one of the world’s fastest-growing casinos. PokerStars Sports applies the same dedication to sports betting as PokerStars has for poker under the trusted red spade.

Sky Betting and Gaming was one of the first operators to recognize the potential of online and then mobile platforms and to deliver fun, entertaining, and quality betting and gaming experiences. It consists of five core brands Sky Bet, Sky Vegas, Sky Casino, Sky Poker and Sky Bingo also operates some of the UK’s most popular free-to-play sports games such as Soccer Saturday Super 6, Sky Sports Fantasy Football, and ITV 7.

RESPONSIBLE GAMBLING

Safer Gambling for Flutter is fundamental to every element of the Group’s strategy.
Across our global business, we provide an entertaining betting experience to over 14 million customers and our priority is ensuring that during their visits to our sites, apps, and shops they can stay in control and only bet what they can afford. However, we recognize that for a small minority of customers, gambling stops being fun, and they are at risk of harm.

All markets have their own regulation and societal context, and we apply our principles in that context with the ultimate objective of building a sustainable and responsible business in each market. How?

We build our business on customers having fun, and harmful play has no place
We educate our customers and staff about responsible play
We have to talk, share and work with others to keep innovating in responsible gambling
We invest in always getting better at tackling the problem

OUR COMMUNITIES

Work-life integration of our teams is very important to us. That’s why we have different communities anyone can join! You can choose between sports (pilates, yoga, football, padel, runners and more), arts (Blip painters, photography), leisure (wine or beer tasting, bonsai, book club, board, and video games), or sustainability with Blip Green.

You don’t relate to any of them? No problem. You can start your own!
