GAN Welcomes the Legalization of Sports Gambling in the State of Illinois  
 
London & Dublin - June 3, 2019: GAN plc (“GAN” or the “Company”), an award-winning developer and supplier of enterprise-level B2B Internet gaming software, services and online gaming content in the United States, welcomes the signing and legalization of sports gambling in Illinois. The bill will allow patrons to place sports wagers both in-person and online. Illinois is the 13th State to legalize sports wagering in the US and the fifth to do so this year. Following the launch, 19.9% of the total US population will be able to engage in internet gambling.
 
The Illinois Senate voted 46-10 on Sunday afternoon in favor of the Sports betting bill. The legislative ‘Senate Bill 690’ now goes to Illinois’ Governor Pritzker, who’s already confirmed he’ll sign it into law.
 
Following Pennsylvania, and its population of 12.82 million, Illinois is to become the second largest State to legalize internet sports gambling in the US, with a population of 12.74 million. GAN foresees the legalization to be material to GAN’s business, as the Company anticipates its existing clients to extend their online GAN-supported operations into the State of Illinois in 2019.
