Management Commentary
 
Dermot Smurfit, Chief Executive Officer of GAN commented:
 
“Launching the largest casino in Pennsylvania online, nearly two years after legislation first passed, appears to have been well worth the wait. GAN’s shareholders can take heart that early indications appear supportive of Industry forecasts for Internet gambling in Pennsylvania and we look forward to expanding into other U.S. States for Parx Casino as well as for new clients, just as we have now expanded from New Jersey into neighbouring Pennsylvania. As the saying goes, ‘experience counts’ and GAN has the experience, capability and opportunity to remain a market leading B2B technology provider as more U.S. States regulate Internet gambling. On behalf of everyone at GAN, we would like to thank our client Parx Casino and the Pennsylvania regulator, the PGCB, for the privilege of serving Internet gambling to residents of your Commonwealth.
 
John Dixon, Chief Operating Officer of Greenwood Gaming & Entertainment, Inc commented:
 
“By leveraging GAN’s proven Platform, Parx Casino has now deployed both Internet sports betting and Internet casino gaming, integrated with our Xclub on-property rewards program, to become among the very first Internet gambling operators to launch in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.”
