1565 – cGaming Sector
We continue to navigate through this pandemic and the new trading environment that has been created in delivering our experience and services to our consumers. This has not been without its challenges but through the hard work and commitment of the Commercial Operators and our partners, we have managed to generate an estimated $C10m of revenue to our 2,200 Charities who are aligned within the cGaming Sector.
Even though we are operating in these challenging and uncertain times, we have been able to drive for efficiency, building a business scale to maximize ‘revenues’ for all the partners. This has also allowed a period for reflection and, with collective insights and analysis, we are looking to recalibrate our current product portfolio to ensure we drive performance once we fully return without restrictions. This does not, or will not, change the product portfolio but how it is deployed and presented will clearly change. This is no different than another sector within the economy.
We wish to be clear, Bingo will remain a product within the portfolio but the presentation, scope and application will evolve to be reflective of the consumers need as we move forward, not what was delivered back in February 2020.
There has, and we wish to acknowledge, been progress but this is tempered by uncertainty surrounding ‘consumer confidence’ within the Leisure/Entertainment and Retail Sector. The path forward is simply unclear and we believe there is a long road until we see full recovery to a point where we see this as a three (3) year path. We continue to work through the issues and be supportive to our members while we co-ordinate with partners on any potential opportunities or new delivery methods.
