After the merger between The Stars Group and Flutter Entertainment, Blip will start producing software for the largest betting brand conglomerate.

As stated by Ângelo Valente, senior employer brand manager, in a statement, "it is an honor and a great responsibility to work for an organization of this size”, reinforcing also being confident that Blip has a team prepared and capable of responding to this new challenge "To do so, you just need to continue to strive with the same energy and deliver with the same high-quality standards as the last eleven years".

"The process will be done gradually and taking into account the fragility and characteristics of the context in which we live and to which we have to adapt," says Peter Jackson, CEO of the group.

Announced in late 2019, the merger between the two online gambling and betting groups received the green light from the British market regulator as early as April this year.
