Accommodating big spenders has brought in higher revenue for the Bedfordshire company, boosting profits 76% a year from 1.2m in 2003 to 6.4m in 2006. Founder and managing director Jonathan Hufford, a former City trader, recently launched a website for sports wagers, and he plans to move into online financial gambling this year.
