LONDON & DUBLIN– (BUSINESS WIRE) –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 indicators1 for the third quarter of 2019, highlighting YoY growth of Internet bets and Internet casino gaming in New Jersey

Management Commentary

Dermot Smurfit, CEO of GAN commented:

“Q3 experienced a year-on-year growth rate experienced in Q25 demonstrates our technology clients' ability to scale to meet the needs of our clients seeking to operate Internet sports betting, at scale, in technically challenging US intra-state markets following the repo of PASPA by the US Supreme Court in May of last year, the XNUMX-year long-standing Federal ban on sports betting.

The third quarter benefits from stronger-than-expected demand for US sports bets during the seasonally weaker months of the NFL Football season in September 5 and continues through to Super Bowl LIII on February 2, 2020.

Exceptional growth rate year on year is exaggerated by (i) mass-market US Internet sports bettors in New Jersey crossing over online Casino before, during and after sports events, which is proving particularly lucrative for GAN; and (ii) faster-than-anticipated ramp-ups of Pennsylvania Internet gamblers, since launch in June 2019, which now has more online gambling than residents of New Jersey, which has been online since November September 2013).
