“Third quarter media revenue of $8.9 million was up 270% year-over-year and grew 5% compared to the same period in 2019. In addition, our unique, integrated sports media and betting approach powered gaming handle of $73.0 million on theScore Bet, including $30.8 million wagered in March, representing our single biggest handle month to date.
We continue to work through the licensing process ahead of launches of theScore Bet in additional U.S. states, with an expectation that we will at least double the number of markets in which we are live in the next twelve months.
