However, gaming revenue dipped 3% to $1.29bn, although revenue from food and beverage increased 27% to $382m for Q2 2023.

“The powerful combination of our operational expertise, improved product, unparalleled market access and Penn PlayTM database with the top sports brands in both the US and Canada with ESPN and theScore, will aim to create a best-in-class user experience and allow us to significantly expand our digital footprint and more efficiently grow our customer database.”
