The Group had a stable quarter with sharply increasing revenues
‘Led by the restart of global sports, the speed of recovery exceeded management’s expectations. The global fantasy sports market for real money gambling outside the US is although still in its infancy.
Scout Gaming’s operator index amounted to 2,421, a growth by 169% – an increasing part is related to new fantasy betting products. The total revenue base grew by 85%, compared with the previous year to SEK 15.0 million. The number of active players in our network at the end of the quarter increased by 117% compared with the previous year.
We continue to see strong prospects for the European market for sports in general and for fantasy sports in particular, we make the assessment that we have opportunities to grow the business significantly in the future.”
