Betsson Group and AEK BC have announced that they have decided to establish an even stronger collaborative partnership in celebration of their rich legacies. Betsson, marking its 60th anniversary in the gaming industry, and AEK, celebrating a century of history, have just announced a historic partnership upgrade.
After two years as the Grand Sponsor of AEK BC, Betsson has proudly unveiled its new role as Naming Sponsor of the team, which notably means that the team’s name will now be AEK BETSSON BC, symbolising a shared journey of excellence.
The announcement took place at The Mall Athens on Thursday, 12th October, where Betsson and AEK BETSSON BC revealed this development.
Following the announcement, the attendees, including team members, Betsson representatives, and local media, watched the Greek film “1968.” This film pays tribute to AEK’s historic victory in 1968 when they clinched the European Cup in Athens, defeating Slavia Prague.
Speaking at the event, Makis Angelopoulos, President of AEK BETSSON BC, expressed, “This partnership marks an exciting chapter in our history, combining our strengths to achieve great success together. We are deeply appreciative of the help and unwavering support we’ve consistently received from Betsson. It is through such active partnerships that we can excel in our game and continue to make history.”
Thanos Marinos, Managing Director of Betsson Greece, said, “We are proud to continue our sponsorship of AEK BC for the third consecutive year and now be an integral part of AEK BETSSON BC’s name. I am particularly glad that Betsson is investing in sporting initiatives within Greece, as this enables us to give back to the communities where we operate and make a positive impact. Through sports, everyone benefits. It fosters community unity, encourages a healthy and active lifestyle, and offers our youth valuable opportunities for growth and development.”
Ronni Hartvig, Chief Commercial Officer at Betsson Group, emphasised, “At Betsson, we are committed to providing an excellent gaming experience. From the time we entered the Greek market, this commitment towards excellence has also been introduced into the events and sporting initiatives that we support, whereby we add excitement and value, enriching the fan experience. We can’t wait to see all the incredible opportunities this new partnership will bring.”
During the event, the new AEK BETSSON BC logo featuring the Betsson logo as a key part of the naming sponsorship was also unveiled.
Eric André and Opera GX bury boring browsers in chaotic rampage
Are you still using that generic, boring, weak-featured browser that came pre-installed on your laptop or device? Then run for cover, because Opera GX – the browser for gamers – and Eric André, comedian, actor and host of The Eric Andre Show, are on a rampage to bury boring browsers once and for all.
In an exclusive new video, an ax-wielding Eric Andre mashes and smashes his way through the most uninspiring, outdated browsers on the internet. Does Eric’s chaotic cull put your current browser in a body bag? Find out in the Bury Boring video, here.
“Pre-installed browsers are the worst. They’re clunky, un-customizable resource hogs that come already loaded on everyone’s desktops and devices – basically, the antithesis of Opera GX. This campaign, by way of Eric André, inspires you to question whether the browser you’re using is actually good or just some BS your system tray inherited. Our money is on the latter,” said Auryn Hiscock, Creative Lead, Opera GX.
Benny Bentham, Creative Director, Waste Creative, added: “The “Bury Boring” concept set out to take an axe to boring browsers. And a chainsaw. And a hammer. And we did it by putting Eric’s anarchic personality front and centre to land our message. The film is horror -anarchy- lols-weirdness all rolled into one. Just like Eric. And the result is anything but boring.”
Compared to Eric’s body bag of boring browsers, Opera GX manifests a variety of next-level features that would put any other generic browser to shame. These include enhanced customization options as well as features like GX Corner, which provides quick access to gaming news, deals, and releases. From improvements such as faster web loading and the ability to control system resources like CPU, RAM, and network usage, to the integration of apps like Discord, Twitch, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Telegram, and Instagram, users are afforded a truly seamless multitasking experience free of annoying lags and other hindrances of older, stale browsers. In short, Opera GX takes your current browser and stomps it into the dirt.
Far from boring, Opera GX allows users to completely customize their entire browsing experience by transforming the way Opera GX looks, sounds, and behaves with various unique and visually appealing MODS with their own sound and video effects. Plus, users ready to join Eric as he bashes and mashes his way through everything boring can check out the custom “GX Man” MOD – a unique browser customization based on Eric Andre’s “GX Man” character. Available free on the GX store, the MOD reflects Eric’s unique style and zero tolerance for boring. With his ax and sledge hammer, GX Man Eric is hell bent on burying all that is boring.
