StockMarketWire.com - Online gambling group 888 said it remained confident that adjusted earnings for the full year would be in-line with its expectations, citing progress against strategic objectives in the second half of the year.

888 continued its momentum in sport, casino and across regulated European markets, driven by its ongoing focus on product enhancement with Orbit, 888's new casino platform.

Orbit was launched in May and subsequently rolled out across regulated markets.

In the UK, initial positive trends in revenue, highlighted in the group's half yearly report in September, had continued over the second half of the financial year so far, the company added.

The group continued to strengthen its position in the US, as it launched 888sport in New Jersey in September and acquired the remaining 53% stake in the All American Poker Network. 'During the period 888 has delivered continued progress against its strategic objectives,' chief executive Itai Frieberger said.

'The group has continued to focus on driving growth in regulated markets, enhancing compliance, and delivering exciting product innovation.'
