There are also plans to expand to the newly regulated US state of North Carolina, and the operator has partnered with Charlotte Motor Speedway. This agreement will give BetMGM access to the gaming markets in North Carolina.

Our performance in 2023 demonstrates our commitment to delivering on our promises. We were able to achieve strong organic growth while executing key strategic initiatives that lay the foundation for 2024 and beyond. The attainment of EBITDA profitability over the last three quarters of 2023 validates the effectiveness of our business model and provides the basis from which to invest further in expanding our sports offering through the integration of Angstrom and leveraging our largely untapped Las Vegas omni-channel advantages.
