Commenting on the performance, Ed Ware, CEO of 32Red, said:
"The continued growth in revenues, particularly in light of strong comparatives, is testament to the strong new player recruitment resulting from more investment in our main market, the UK. We aim to continue in this regard as well as taking our first measured steps in entering the Italian market.
While we recognise the potential for economic and regulatory uncertainty across Europe, we look forward to further progress during the second half of 2012."
