GAN Welcomes Legalization of US Internet Sports Betting
Confirms H2 launch of Internet sports betting in the US
London & Dublin | May 15, 2018: GAN plc ("GAN" or the "Company"), an award-winning developer and supplier of enterprise-level B2B Internet gaming software, services and online gaming content in the United States, today welcomes the decision of the Supreme Court of the United States ("SCOTUS") to overturn the previous Federal US prohibition on sports betting enshrined with the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act 1992 ("PASPA").
The Company confirms it is preparing to launch Internet sports betting in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania for its clients in H2.
Sports betting will be delivered as an integrated extension into GAN's enterprise software platform and GAN will participate in the material incremental sports betting revenues. These incremental revenues are expected to be material for GAN in H2.
Dermot Smurfit, CEO of GAN commented:
"GAN has been preparing for sports betting since Q4 2017 at the request of multiple US Clients who asked GAN to review, procure and support the delivery of sports betting solutions both online and for deployment in the retail channel in the event PASPA was overturned. We welcome yesterday's repeal of PASPA and confirm that sports betting will be material to GAN's revenues going forwards, commencing in the second half of 2018."
