Who we are
Vermantia is a leader in omni-channel content solutions for lotteries, gaming and betting operators worldwide.
We offer a one-stop-shop for bespoke data and picture content featuring thousands of live events a year. This includes premium quality horse and greyhound racing from the United Kingdom, United States, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, which is complemented by the most comprehensive portfolio of virtual games on the market. Gathered on our unique CONNECT platform and distributed at ultra-low latency, we provide engaging betting opportunities to customers who also benefit from the cashless convenience of our modern self-service betting solutions.
Founded in 2007, with offices in Athens, Cyprus and Italy, as well as representatives in the UK, CIS, and Nigeria, we partner with dozens of international operators across 32 countries.
Acquired by Arena Racing Company (ARC) in 2018, we have now expanded our broadcast infrastructure and technological capabilities, empowering us to grow our market-leading broadcast, content and data hub.
We believe that tailor-made content on a robust gaming platform built with cutting edge technology enhances the betting user experience and improves profitability.
We understand that all operators and their customers are different and require a nuanced approach that suits their individual locality and culture. We are a one-stop-shop – but there is no one-size-fits-all.
