Golden Matrix Announces Greater Than $34 Million Preliminary Fiscal 2022 Annual Revenues Estimate
Las Vegas, NV - (NewMediaWire) - November 17, 2022 - Golden Matrix Group Inc. (NASDAQ:GMGI)(“Golden Matrix”, “GMGI” or the “Company”), a developer and licensor of online gaming platforms, systems and gaming content, today announced its preliminary revenues for the fiscal year ending October 31, 2022, resulting in expected record revenues of more than $34 million for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2022. This represents an estimated 201% improvement on revenues of $11.3 million in the comparable twelve-month period ending October 31, 2021.
Golden Matrix acquired its 80% controlling interest in RKingsCompetitions Ltd (“Rkings”), which operates a business-to-consumer (B2C) Tournament Platform at the beginning of the fiscal year; and as a result, there were no contributions to GMGI’s overall revenues by Rkings during the prior twelve-month period. Golden Matrix CEO Brian Goodman noted, however, that, “the Company’s traditional business-to-business (B2B) gaming segment showed a 30% improvement in revenue growth for the twelve months ended October 31, 2022, compared to 2021, and it currently services over 600 Online Casino Brands with more than 6.8 million registered users across all GM-X platforms.”
The Company also noted that during the fiscal year just ended, RKings had awarded over $14.5 million in prizes, including luxury cars, jewellery and other luxury goods. Currently, RKings has about 68,000 Instagram followers, in addition to more than 376,000 Facebook followers. The number of registered users on the tournament platform now exceeds 261,000.
Further information regarding the results of GMGI’s operations for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2022, will be included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K, which the Company plans to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission before January 15, 2023.
The revenues referenced in this press release include the 20% minority interest in RKings.
