By Gambling Insider
Esports Technologies has published its first quarter fiscal year 2022 financial results, reporting $7.1m in revenue.
For Q1, its gross profit amounted to $2.5m, while its cash position increased to $11.8m, up $2.8m from the previous fiscal year end.
The Nasdaq-listed, Las Vegas-based esports wagering business gained 1.25 million deposited customers after acquiring online sportsbook and casino brands Karamba, Hopa, Griffon Casino, BetTarget, Dansk777 and GenerationVIP.
Formerly owned by Aspire Global, these brands were brought under Esports Technologies’ umbrella when it acquired Aspire’s B2C business. As a result, Esports gained access to several regulated markets, including the UK, Germany, Denmark and Ireland.
