Comments 

Bally’s CEO Robeson Reeves reflected on the first year in which he was CEO by stating: “Bally’s completed a successful 2023 with healthy results across all our business segments. Revenues in the fourth quarter grew 6.1% year-over-year to $611.7 million reflecting continued growth in our Casinos & Resorts, International Interactive and North America Interactive segments. For the full year, revenues grew 8.6% versus 2022.” 

Bally’s CFO Marcus Glover added: “Bally’s operating teams have been focused on expense reduction and operating efficiency. To that end, we are evaluating all areas of the business and are executing initiatives to centralize certain functions and streamline others.

"We continue to make progress with our plans for the financing of the Chicago Permanent Casino and hope to provide additional details on those plans in the near term. In all, 2023 was an active and productive year for Bally’s and we are extremely excited by what the future holds.” 

In related news, in January, it was reported that Bally’s Chicago had failed to reach revenue estimates set out for its first few months of operation.
