Revealing a 21 per cent drop in revenues in Q3, bwin.party said a block on access to its products in Greece was a factor and would continue to affect revenue and profit this year.

As revenues fell to €145.7m, bwin.party blamed action by the Greek authorities to block access to over 400 gaming sites including its own, adding that the move would have a modest net impact on revenue and EBITDA this year.

Norbert Teufelberger, bwin.party CEO, said: "As we expected, our underlying third-quarter performance appears to have represented the floor in what has been a transitional year for the group.”

He added that the effects of the Greek dispute would be offset by full-year 2013 cost savings of more than €70m.
