CORE Gaming is a content studio that specialises in the development of HTML5 real money games to casino operators and platform holders. Based in Birmingham, CORE Gaming’s catalogue consists of a wide range of games, including slots, scratch cards, instant win and table games.

Having worked in the sector alongside Orbis for a number of years I was confident of their ability to run an effective process which would maximise value for the shareholders. Their hard working approach and ability to quickly problem solve has ensured a great outcome.

Steve Murray, Investor


Over a number of years Orbis worked with the CORE Gaming team to evaluate a number of exit opportunities. Given the already close relationship between CORE and Sky Betting & Gaming there was a natural strategic rationale for them as  the ultimate acquirer.

Sky Betting & Gaming was formed in 2001 and has since grown to become one of the UK’s leading online bookmakers, with a team of 100 employees and a strong track record of innovation. In 2015 Sky Betting and Gaming became an independent company following the sale of its majority share by its parent company Sky to CVC Capital Partners.
