Hoboken, New Jersey–(Newsfile Corp. – February 25, 2022) – Esports Entertainment Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: GMBL) (NASDAQ: GMBLW) (or the “Company”) highlighted today the strong start to calendar year 2022 for its iGaming division. The Company’s iGaming division, which holds five Tier-1 gaming licenses across Europe and the United States, has delivered seven consecutive weeks of Net Gaming Revenue in excess of $1 million to begin the quarter and 10 straight weeks in total dating back to December. In January, the iGaming division achieved their highest revenue month with more than $6 million. This month, the Company’s casino brands have reported record levels of first-time depositing users since the acquisition of Lucky Dino a year ago. Additionally, cross-selling initiatives across brands have been a strong tailwind to-date in 2022.
“Despite the challenges reflected in our second quarter fiscal 2022 results announced earlier this week, our iGaming business continues to see strong momentum to start the calendar year,” said Grant Johnson, CEO of Esports Entertainment Group. “Consistently eclipsing net gaming revenue of $1 million per week is a testament to the success of our work to migrate off of Bet Construct and onto our proprietary Idefix platform.”
In addition to the growing momentum for its iGaming business, the Company’s VIE.gg platform is completing soft play in New Jersey, which allow bettors to wager on their favorite esports teams in real-time. The Company is eager for the inaugural launch of its LANDUEL peer-to-peer wagering platform, which is set for March 19-20 at the Hard Rock Casino & Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
