The chief executive of the company, Mark Locke, noted:
“The past year was a really remarkable one as our company has established partnerships with sportsbooks and leagues, due to which we managed to generate notable results. I am beyond sure that the current year will be beneficial and fruitful, as our main focus is on growth strategies and expansion to new areas all over the world”.
