We’ve proven we can acquire, engage, and retain this demographic in gambling products under our umbrella. The value we’re beginning to unlock from this cannot be overstated.

“We exited 2023 as a substantially diversified company, both geographically and across our product suite, with the strongest customer KPIs in our history. Our esports expertise no longer solely defines us, and our rapid ascent in other segments such as traditional sports, casino and fantasy outlines the increasingly widening opportunity set we’re realizing as a result of our unrivaled demographic understanding.”

During the year, the company also expanded its interactive casino platform, Casino.exe, which is home to the company’s current and future titles. The platform features four new titles, including Penalty Shootout, Bomb Squad, Wheel of Time and Courier Sweeper.

Casino.exe was designed as a virtual interface that allows users to access titles from Rivalry’s third-party casino titles within an interactive online space.
