Dermot Smurfit, chief executive officer of GameAccount Network commented:
“The first half of 2015 has continued the period of investment for GAN, and, performance is in line with our plan.
“We have continued to focus on building a substantial recurring revenue base to offset this investment and achieve future profitability. “
GAN said gross proceeds from its simulated gaming product have exceeded $2.8 million, an increase of over 330 percent. Simulated gaming now represents over 41 percent of the company’s overall revenue.
