GAN Reports Q3 2019 Key Performance Indicators Highlighted by 203% Growth in Gross Operator Revenue
London & Dublin – October 1, 2019: GAN plc (“GAN” or the “Company”), an award-winning developer and supplier of enterprise-level B2B Internet gambling software, services and online gaming content in the United States, today announced the release of quarterly key performance indicators for the third quarter of 2019, highlighting continued YoY growth reflecting high demand for Internet sports betting and Internet casino gaming in New Jersey and (launched during the third quarter) the State of Pennsylvania.
Dermot Smurfit, CEO of GAN commented:
“Unprecedented year on year growth rate experienced in Q3 demonstrates our Platform technology’s ability to scale to meet the needs of our diverse clients seeking to operate Internet sports betting, at scale, in technically challenging U.S. intra-State markets following the repeal of PASPA by the U.S Supreme Court in May of last year, the 25year long-standing Federal bad on sports betting.
The third quarter benefitted from stronger-than-expected demand for U.S sports betting during the seasonally weaker Summer months as well as the first month of American Football NFL season which commenced on September 5 and continues through to Super Bowl LIII on February 2, 2020.
The exceptional growth rate year on year is exaggerated by (i) mass-market U.S. Internet sports bettors in New Jersey crossing over into the online Casino before, during and after sports events, which is proving particularly lucrative for GAN; and (ii) the faster-than-anticipated ramp-up of Pennsylvania Internet gamblers, since launch in June 2019, which today sees more Pennsylvanians gambling online than residents of New Jersey, which has been online since November 2013 (with Internet sports betting since September 2018).
