Monthly betting tickets from November to December almost doubled from 7,951 to 12,661 in the company’s third month of operation in the United States. This represents a more than fivefold increase in betting slips and more than three times bets wagered from October, while Hold’s remained firmly in double digits.

Mr. Ciavarella continued, “Grand Central’s early performance has been extremely encouraging for Elys and has generated considerable attention from potential operators in neighboring states. Remarkably, Grand Central’s results are generated from a single kiosk and point-of-sale terminal (POS or Ticket Window) and speaks to the close relationship between small businesses and their customers. Building on this success, Elys is actively working with Grand Central to double the number of access points, which would increase capacity and customer comfort.

The company forecasts continued month-over-month revenue growth and expects these trends to continue into the new year. The outstanding results of the Elys platform within a single small business site represent the huge potential for scalability in the US and Canada. In March, Elys also plans to expand with its first major retail location at the Ocean Resort Casino in Atlantic City, NJ.
