Betty, a pioneering online casino focusing on female players, recently secured another $5 million investment in its pre-Series A funding round. This round, led by CEAS Investments, marks a big step for Betty as it gears up for its forthcoming Series A. The investment round saw contributions from notable firms like Powerhouse Capital, HappyHour, and Courtside Ventures.
Since its launch in Ontario, Canada, last February, Betty has made a notable impact in the online gaming industry. The company’s initiation in Ontario was possible after acquiring a license from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO). Over the past year, Betty has successfully raised a total of $7 million, demonstrating strong investor confidence.
The latest funding of $5 million will be instrumental for Betty in enhancing its live operations and boosting customer engagement. Betty also plans to use this capital to upgrade its platform from the current version, Midnight 1, to a more advanced iteration, Midnight 2, which promises to deliver exceptional user experiences.
Betty’s statement, released by HappyHour, emphasized the importance of this financial milestone:
“Betty, the female-focused online casino, announced today that it has raised $5 million in pre-Series A funding led by CEAS Investments as the company approaches its upcoming Series A round,”
As an online casino dedicated to female players, Betty has been committed to providing unique and engaging experiences. The platform is known for its focus on community-based play, gamification, and transparency. This approach has resulted in Betty retaining female players at a rate three times higher than its competitors.
Robin Reed, Managing Partner at HappyHour, praised Betty’s efforts in engaging and retaining female players through a quality platform. He expressed excitement about supporting Betty’s growth with both capital and product expertise.
“Betty has a clear vision and plan to differentiate themselves in the market by prioritizing female online slot players and by building an in-house platform,” said Reed.
Salim Mitha, Managing Partner at Powerhouse Capital and former EVP at Playtika, noted that Betty employs best practices in the online gambling sector. He highlighted that these practices have been pivotal to the company’s success, contributing to increased revenue and enhanced customer engagement.
