* Strong balance sheet with 3.8 million cash and cash equivalents (H1-2014: 1.8 million);

Operational highlights showed:

Gaming Realms CEO Patrick Southon, said:

"We are pleased to report the completion and launch of our platform which is showing good initial growth. We believe the acquisitions of QuickThink Media and Blueburra Holdings, coupled with the monetisation ability of our new 'feature led' gambling platform, will enable us to grow revenues even more quickly in 2015."

The Board remains confident that the Group is well positioned to maintain its strong growth trajectory and continued player acquisition. The strategy remains to engage users on new mobile devices through a soft gaming proposition, while maintaining its focus on reducing CPA.
