Pleased with organic growth.

“We are delighted with the organic growth from our underlying business which remains robust,” Eitan Boyd, chief executive of Stride Gaming, commented. This, coupled with the completion of our recent acquisitions, means we have significant scale, increased market share and are now the fourth largest online bingo operator in the UK. With these positive developments in mind the Company looks forward to the future with confidence.”
