Gambling.com Group Third Quarter Revenue Rises 94% to $19.6 Million

Published

on

 

Gambling.com Group Limited (Nasdaq: GAMB) (“Gambling.com Group” or the “Company”), a multi-award-winning performance marketing company and a leading provider of digital marketing services for the global online gambling industry, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2022.

Charles Gillespie, Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder of Gambling.com Group, commented, “Our quarterly results, including record revenue, reflect continued strength in established markets, our successful execution in the rapidly growing North American market and the benefits of our efficient operating model which drives attractive operating margins and consistent positive Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow. Third quarter 2022 revenue rose 94%, inclusive of currency headwinds, to $19.6 million; Adjusted EBITDA increased 32% to $6.4 million; and we generated Free Cash Flow of $4.9 million. In addition, new depositing customers rose 152% year-over-year in the third quarter and nearly 20% on a quarterly sequential basis.

“Our investments to expand the breadth and quality of our portfolio of performance marketing websites ahead of new North American market launches has positioned Gambling.com Group for strong performance from its first day of operations in each of these new markets. The efficacy of this strategy is evident in our strong third quarter revenue growth in North America, which increased nearly 300% year-over-year to $9.1 million. This growth reflects, in part, contributions from three new markets that have come online since Q3 2021, including a strong first month of operations in Kansas which opened on September 1. We believe our similar investments in premium domains to address markets that we expect to come online over the next several quarters, including Ohio, Maryland and Massachusetts, position the Company for similarly strong starts as these new markets formally launch. In addition to leveraging our extraordinary North American growth opportunity, we continue to grow in more established markets, as reflected by our all-time record quarterly revenue in the U.K. and Ireland. Gambling.com Group’s strong performance in both new and mature markets provides clear evidence that our performance marketing platform helps online gambling operators address their critically important goal of investing in efficient and profitable customer acquisition that delivers easily attributable and quantifiable returns.

“Our consistently strong Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow, even as we continue to invest to drive further growth, is a key differentiator for Gambling.com Group. We will continue to benefit from our proprietary technology, which offers us competitive advantages, a significant pathway for near and long-term growth in North America, a track record of delivering consistent growth in our established markets and an operating model that drives profitability. As such, we are confident in our ability to grow over the balance of this year and extend our successes in 2023 and beyond.”

Casino Management Systems Market Overview

Technological Advancements Propel Growth: Technological advancements play a crucial role in driving the ever-changing Casino Management Systems Market. Advancements like AI-powered analytics, integration with IoT, and mobile compatibility contribute to improved operational efficiency and increased customer engagement. These advancements fuel the need for businesses to improve their operations and provide exceptional customer experiences, leading to the growth of the market.

Rising Demand for Enhanced Security Solutions: Security is a major concern in the Casino Management Systems Market, leading to a high demand for cutting-edge security solutions. Given the rising number of fraudulent activities and data breaches, casinos are actively looking for strong security measures to protect their assets and ensure the safety of customer information. Addressing these concerns, solutions that provide biometric authentication, encryption, and real-time monitoring can foster trust among stakeholders and contribute to market growth.

Increasing Regulatory Compliance Requirements: The Casino Management Systems Market is seeing a notable increase in demand due to the growing importance of regulatory compliance. Comprehensive compliance solutions are required to meet the stringent regulations in the gaming industry. By utilising systems that provide regulatory reporting, audit trails, and age verification capabilities, casinos can ensure compliance with legal requirements and prevent potential penalties. The increasing emphasis on compliance highlights the significance of advanced management systems, driving the growth of the market.

High Initial Investment Costs: One of the main challenges in the Casino Management Systems Market is the significant upfront costs involved in implementing comprehensive management solutions. Acquiring, integrating, and customising these systems can result in significant upfront expenses for casinos. The financial obstacle hinders the expansion of the market, especially for small and medium-sized businesses. Nevertheless, companies that offer adaptable pricing structures and scalable solutions can help alleviate this limitation, thereby expanding the market’s accessibility to a wider array of businesses.

Integration Challenges and Legacy Systems: The Casino Management Systems Market faces significant challenges due to the complexities of integration and the presence of legacy systems. It is common for casinos to have a wide range of IT infrastructures, some of which may be outdated and incompatible with modern management solutions. Implementing new systems and ensuring smooth compatibility with current infrastructure demands significant time, resources, and specialised knowledge. The integration challenges mentioned can impede market growth as they result in longer implementation timelines and higher deployment costs.

Concerns Regarding Data Privacy and Security: In the ever-growing landscape of data breaches and privacy scandals, the Casino Management Systems Market faces significant challenges when it comes to data privacy and security. Casinos are responsible for managing extensive amounts of sensitive customer data, which includes personal and financial information. This makes them highly attractive to cyber threats. With increasing regulatory scrutiny, casinos are under growing pressure to maintain data protection standards and ensure the privacy of their customers. Tackling these concerns necessitates strong security measures and adherence to data privacy regulations, which introduces additional complexity and expenses to system implementations, thereby limiting market expansion.

Geographic Dominance:
The forecast period is expected to see the Asia Pacific region experiencing the most significant growth. Several countries in the Asia Pacific region, such as Macau, Singapore, the Philippines, and South Korea, have experienced significant expansion in their casino industry. Emerging markets are actively expanding their gaming sectors in order to attract more tourists and boost revenue. This expansion requires sophisticated management systems to optimise operations, enhance visitor experiences, and ensure compliance with regulations.

In addition, the Asia-Pacific region has experienced a notable rise in middle-class populations and disposable incomes. As a result, there has been a growing trend of increased leisure spending, with a particular focus on gaming and entertainment. With the increasing number of casino visitors, there is a growing need for cutting-edge casino management systems. This has led to the creation of innovative technologies that enhance customer service, marketing strategies, and overall operational efficiency.

Casino Management Systems Market Key Players Shaping the Future

Major players, including International Game Technology, Scientific Games Corporation, Everi Holdings Inc., NCR Corporation, Micros Systems, Konami Gaming, Light & Wonder, Astra Gaming Group, Novomatic AG Group, Gauselmann Group, Gamesys Group plc, BetConstruct, Melco Resorts & Entertainment, Galaxy Entertainment Group, SJM Holdings Limited, Suncity Group, Paradise Entertainment Limited. and more, play a pivotal role in shaping the future of the Casino Management Systems Market.

MONEYMAKER TOUR LAUNCHES COACHING PARTNERSHIP WITH FARAZ JAKA

Published

on

 

Collaboration will offer Tour participants and fans resources to improve poker skills 

The Moneymaker Tour, which was founded in 2023 by former 2003 World Series of Poker Champion Chris Moneymaker, has partnered with notable poker player Faraz Jaka’s coaching programme, JAKAcoaching to offer Moneymaker Tour players and fans with exclusive coaching offers, materials and access to tools, insights and resources to build and elevate their poker skills.

Faraz Jaka, who won his first WSOP bracelet in the $1,500 NLHE Shootout at the 2023 series and who has more than $12 million in tournament winnings to his name, will provide analyses of hands from the livestreams of Moneymaker Tour stops exclusively for JAKAcoaching members and on his Instagram channel. This analysis will start from the next Moneymaker Tour stop, which kicks off today at the Daytona Beach Racing & Card club and runs until April 29th.

“We are excited to join forces with the Moneymaker Tour to provide participants with practical resources and impact their game in a meaningful way,” said Faraz Jaka, founder of JAKAcoaching, who is also a member of the PokerOrg Player Advisory Board. “Through our partnership, we aim to empower players with the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in today’s competitive poker landscape.”

To kick start their learning journey with JAKAcoaching, the site is offering Moneymaker Tour participants access to an exclusive, free training video featuring Florida poker legend Scott Baumstein which can be found at JAKA.poker/moneymaker.

JAKAcoaching also has a special 16% membership discount offer for Moneymaker Tour players and fans to subscribe and join the thousands of players, from beginners to experienced professionals, who benefit from the full range of coaching materials, expertise and resources offered by JAKAcoaching to take their game to the next level.

“Faraz teaches all skill sets within the game and with the majority of players lying in the mid major market, our partnership is a perfect match”, said Tony Burns, Executive Manager, Moneymaker Tour. “With Faraz’ well proven results and his high respect within the poker community from his peers, we felt our brands complimented each other nicely.”

The Moneymaker Tour, which saw its inaugural stop in May 2023, has been steadily increasing in popularity. Its third series at Hard Rock Casino in Cincinnati in September was the first to draw a $1 Million guaranteed Main Event, with a strong 788 entry field eventually won by Joseph Bakun for more than $208,000.

The Moneymaker Tour was created by 2003 WSOP Champion and ACR Team Pro, Chris Moneymaker and Moneymaker Tour Executive Manager, Tony Burns. The Tour was conceived as a way for Moneymaker to give poker players opportunities to have their own ordinary to extraordinary moments as he did. One such player was Michael Rossi, who echoed Chris’s own story when he won the first Moneymaker Poker Tour $2,500 Buy-in Main Event at Palm Beach Kennel Club. Rossi, who won his seat via an online satellite for just $95, this time courtesy of ACR Poker, took down the tournament for more than $134,000 on May 23, the 20th anniversary of Moneymaker’s 2003 WSOP Main Event victory.

The Moneymaker Tour returns to Daytona Beach Racing & Card Club from April 17-29, and moves on to the Palm Beach Kennel Club from May 2-14.
