In constant currency Gross winnings revenue increased by 22 per cent whilst the organic increase in Gross winnings revenue in constant currency was 18 per cent. Taking into consideration the lack of major tournaments this year, we are confident that we have continued to outpace market growth and have continued to take market share.”“In the second quarter of 2017, 38 per cent of the Group’s Gross winnings revenue came from locally regulated markets. The acquisition of 32Red will significantly accelerate our development and profitability in the world’s largest locally regulated market. Gross winnings revenue from the mobile channel grew by 52 per cent and accounted for 73 per cent of total Gross winnings revenue in the second quarter”.“In the period up to 23 July 2017, average daily Gross winnings revenue in GBP was 20 per cent higher compared to the same period in 2016 (up 9 per cent excluding 32Red). Adjusting for the impact of exchange rate changes, the growth was 15 per cent (up 4 per cent excluding 32Red),”Kindred H1 2017 Performance Overview Related Articles Share Submit GiG lauds its ‘B2B makeover’ delivering Q2 growth August 11, 2020 Unibet backs #GoRacingGreen as lead racing charity  July 28, 2020 Sharelast_img
