Further developments include the announcement of a new Bogotá hub.

Operated by Easygo, crypto casino Stake.com is now live in Colombia following the further establishment of a new Bogotá hub.  

Following the acquisition of Betfair Colombia by Easygo, Stake.com’s launch in Colombia will aim to further solidify the group’s operational presence in the LatAm nation. This news follows the recent development of $100m wagered on the IPL cricket season in India, following investment in the region. Additionally, Stake.com Co-Founder Ed Craven purchased a share in PointsBet back in December – according to the Australian Financial Review.  

Gaming America sat down with Craven in February, who commented on the development of Stake.com from its crypto origins, saying, “Over the last couple of years, we have started to move much more heavily into traditional avenues of payments, too. Stake used to be known as just a crypto casino, but nowadays it really is just a casino and sports betting website.”  

Easygo details plans to recruit 50 employees in Latin America by the end of the year and will hope this recent focus on the region will further enhance its global presence.  

Speaking on the company’s LatAm objectives, Stake General Manager of LatAm, Diana Otalora, said, “Our objective is to bring the thrill of our gaming platforms to players across Latin America. With the launch of our Bogotá hub, we are poised to deliver exceptional gaming experiences and foster enduring connections with our players.”  

This point was built upon by Brais Pena Sanchez, CSO at Easygo, who said, “Latin America represents a burgeoning market for the online gambling industry, and our presence in Bogotá positions us to better serve our expanding player base in the region.”
