GPWA Times Magazine - Issue 49 - April 2021

Will your 2021 revenue be better than 2020? Comments from GPWA members: GPWA MEMBER POLL At the start of each year it has been a tradition for us to ask our members on the GPWA Forums to gaze into their crystal ball and predict how their revenue will compare to the previous 12 months. This year, of course, was muchmore difficult to forecast as we were coming off a 2020 that got swallowed up by a global pandemic, not to mention increasing regulations and continuedmergers and acquisitions constantly affecting the industry and how we approach our business. There were still plenty of unknowns once the calendar finally turned to 2021, but we’re happy to report that the GPWA members who responded to our annual poll remained fairly optimistic, with 33% expecting revenue would grow by more than 50%. See below for the voting results and a few comments from our members.

But 2021 will be just as good for online gaming as in 2020 . . . I plan to consolidate and continue concentrating my efforts on my new website with a very specific focus and hope to stay afloat. newcustomeroffer PUBLIC MEMBER Being optimistic, I voted for a 50+% increase in 2021 . . . With (hopefully) a world recovering from the pandemic and slowly returning to normality, plus the postponed sporting events of 2020 all jamming into a packed 2021, I’m hoping for a strong bounce back. Cash Bonus PRIVATE MEMBER I predict a 6% to 10% increase in profits in 2021, regardless of the ever-growing competition and obstacles that we’re constantly facing. I also expect the global economy will improve and strengthen and hopefully, there will be less rules and regulations on our industry (not holding my breath). 33 .33 % Revenue will grow more than 50% in 2021. 25 .00 % Revenue will stay the same (within 5%). 8 .33 % Revenue will shrink 6% to 10% in 2021. 8 .33 % Revenue will shrink 11% to 25% in 2021. 16 .67 % Revenue will grow 11% to 20% in 2021. 8 .00 % Revenue will grow 6% to 10% in 2021.
