The figures, published by Entain which co-owns the brand, are more or less in line with earlier estimates.
BetMGM Results Exceed Expectations
BetMGM’s revenue for the period was expected to sit at $1.3 billion. The actual number, however, sits more closely to $1.44 million, exceeding earlier expectations. The operator also posted same-state growth in net revenue from digital operations of 51%. It also nailed its EBITDA predictions, reporting an EBITDA loss of $440 million.
BetMGM expects to achieve net revenue of between $1.8 and $2 billion by the end of the current year and to eliminate EBITDA losses in the second half of 2023.
2022 was definitely a strong year for BetMGM, the release stated. Entain attributed these results to the impact of higher gross gaming margins. In addition, same state CPAs declined by 21% year-on-year thanks to the company’s data-focused marketing strategy. Another factor that affected the outperformance was the operator’s improved approach to player bonusing.
BetMGM now ranks among the top three gaming operators in the US and is a leading force in iGaming. The company’s products are live in 25 jurisdictions, allowing it to reach a whopping 45% of the adult population of the United States. The operator’s offerings are now available across the border thanks to its launch in Ontario almost a year ago.
