Stocks sored up 14 per cent on news that company profits were “materially ahead”, due in part to a strong presence in the Spain market.

The firm is now the second-biggest player in the Spanish poker market after PokerStars.

Simon French, an analyst at Panmure Gordon , upgraded his full-year ebitda forecast for 888 by 22pc to $56.1m immediately following Friday’s announcement. 

888 is also forging relationships with US-based casino firms in hope of the market becoming more regulated in 2013.
