Investment summary

Gaming Realms is starting to leverage its 'Slingo' brand in real money gaming as well as social, and via blue-chip licensing deals (Express Newspapers, 'Britain's Got Talent' website, etc). Q316 EBITDA was £0.96m (trading update 2 November), moving the group towards its 2016 breakeven target (after a H116 loss of £3m). We believe that Gaming Realms has passed a tipping point in its development and is gathering profitable momentum, with progress becoming clearer with the final results, which we expect to be in April.

Industry outlook

The UK government review into stakes and prizes (due to report in Q1/Q217) is expected to mainly focus on FOBT machines in betting shops. Possible tighter restrictions on gambling advertising could affect GMR but would be more relevant for bingo-led TV advertising before the 9pm watershed. The European casino market is expected to grow at 9.2% to $27.2bn in 2018 with mobile a key driver. The extension of POC gaming tax to 'free play' from 1 August 2017 is already in our forecasts.
