NeoGames announced today financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2020

Moti Malul - NeoGamesMoti Malul, Chief Executive Officer of NeoGames, said: “We are proud to be reporting our results for the first time as a publicly traded company. The past year was pivotal for NeoGames and the execution of our strategic goals. The year started with a six-year extension of our contract with Sazka, our largest European customer. We built on that momentum with the expansion of our NeoPollard JV customer, the Virginia Lottery, into a full iLottery program that launched on July 1st. Next, we announced the first contract in Canada with AGLC in Alberta. The program launched rapidly in early October and is off to a successful start. We closed the year with the recently announced contract extension with our largest customer, the Michigan State Lottery, through July 2026. 2020 has definitely been transformational for NeoGames.”

“The year also marks positive signs for the growth of iLottery around the world. As regulators realize the potential value iLottery can provide to tightening governmental budgets, particularly during the uncertain times brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, NeoGames continues to represent a trusted provider with superior technology and premium content driving the most profitable iLottery programs. In the U.S. iLottery market, according to Eilers & Krejcik Gaming, a leading gaming industry research firm, our NeoPollard JV is the market leader with a 70% market share of iLottery sales during the fourth quarter of 2020. Entering 2021, on the back of our successful IPO, we believe NeoGames remains well-positioned to continue to capitalize on the current landscape as a leader in the rapidly expanding global iLottery market,” continued Malul.
