Austria’s number one sports betting provider sells its products exclusively on the domestic market. Participating in the games is possible for persons aged 18 and over.
The Austrian Sports Betting Company is part of the Austrian Lotteries and Casinos Austria Group. Known best by its brand tipp3, it is Austria’s number one sports betting provider. Playing tipp3 products is restricted to persons aged 18 years and older.
Since the first bets were placed on this domestic platform in August, 2001, tipp3 has become synonymous with sports betting in Austria, having a brand recognition rate of over 90%. It is also ranked by residents as the most trustworthy sports betting provider in the country.
The Austrian Sports Betting Company is owned primarily by Entertainment Glücks und Unterhaltungsspiel GmbH (Austrian Lotteries & Casinos Austria Group), as well as having publishing companies Mediaprint Zeitungs- und Zeitschriften GmbH & Co KG, and Bundesländerverlage Beteiligungs GmbH among its shareholders.
Each year, over 10 million bets are placed via a sales network of more than 3,300 retail outlets throughout Austria. Additional sales channels include online via tipp3.at, our tipp3 app, and through our lottery partner win2day.
Because tipp3 is sold exclusively domestically, all revenue and tax payments remain in Austria.
