“We continue to be encouraged by the trends we are seeing across our business with the recent easing of Covid restrictions,” said Lorne Weil, Inspired executive chairman.
“While it has only been a couple of weeks since English betting shops reopened and we are restricted to two out of four machines per shop, our gross gaming revenue per operational machine in betting shops has performed above December 2020 levels when they were operating under the same conditions. Our interactive business has continued its outstanding momentum into the second quarter where our entry into Michigan demonstrates the further progress we have made in our strategic expansion into new markets.”
