Gambling systems designer eBet (ASX:EBT) expects to post a full-year pre-tax profit of $2.02 million – a 27% increase on the previous year.
The company said the projected profit surge will be due to stronger second-half systems sales, particularly of its WMS range of pokies.
The NSW office of liquor, gaming and racing has granted full regulatory approval for eBet to sell its WMS Bluebird 2 poker machines and an initial three games, eBet said. The approval grants eBet access to the $130 million NSW poker machine market.
EBT shares have today risen 8.75% to $0.087.
