GAN revenue sees major 171% jump
GAN saw gross operator revenue increase to 171.3% year-on-year. The company posted US$315.6 million in 2019, thanks to the major gambling expansion and a Q4 key performance.
For the fourth quarter of 2019, GAN saw its operator revenue increase by 189.1% to US$120.8 million. Its active player days rose 94.8% to 9 million while ARPDAU increased 48.4% to $13.43. All three figures were by far the highest of any quarter in 2019.
The growth in gross operator revenues and the number of active players was mainly due to the popularity of sports betting in the US and the cross-selling of sports betting customers to casino games, said. The supplier powers the account services for FanDuel’s mobile sportsbook offering in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Indiana.
