EveryMatrix reveals strong start to 2022 with growth across all business segments
B2B iGaming technology provider EveryMatrix reveals strong results for Q1 of 2022.
EveryMatrix’s Q1 update shows Gross Profit growth across all business segments (Casino, Sports, and Platform), a strong cash position and sustained business momentum. The Group has reinvested the positive cash flow in its in-house game studios and expansion into the U.S. market, both set to support the Company’s future growth.
CONTINUED GROSS PROFIT GROWTH
Gross Profit (Gross Revenue less direct costs to game suppliers) increased by 14% Y/Y in Q1 2021 to €13.9 million (12.3) with a 4-year CAGR of 35%. Gross Profit was driven by substantial growth around the world and the stabilisation of German revenues after the regulatory changes there.
EBITDA is down by 14% to €4.8 million (5.6) versus a strong comparative in the first quarter of last year. €4.8 million is on par with the 2021 average. The Company has continued to invest in its game studios (Spearhead Studios, Armadillo Studios and SlotMatrix RGS) and the U.S. market during the period.
The EBITDA/Gross Profit margin was 35% (46%), which is at the same level as the EBITDA/Gross Profit margin for the full year 2021. The margin was affected by the increase in the Group’s headcount from 553 at the end of Q1 2021 to 669 at the end of Q1 2022, and costs associated with the game studios and U.S. investments.
Net Cash grew from €5.9 million in Q1 2021 to €11.1 million in Q1 2022. The Company is reinvesting positive cash flow into future growth and remains debt-free.
Ebbe Groes, Group CEO of EveryMatrix, says: “We have started the year with a strong financial performance across all three business segments, driven by our well-balanced and innovative product offering and broad client base. We saw a record number of new client wins in the quarter with 40 deals signed across all products.
“We continue to invest organically for our next level of growth, mainly in our game studios and the North American markets. On top of the organic investments, we are also looking at M&A opportunities.”
KEY MILESTONES IN Q1
- Six new Tier 1 clients were added in Q1 across the U.S., Africa, Asia, and Europe.
- The newly launched SlotMatrix, the pure B2B casino content aggregator, is off to a good start, with 13 clients signed already in Q1.
- The casino gamification solution JackpotEngine was launched ahead of ICE 2022.
- A B2B gaming license was granted in West Virginia, and applications were filed in additional states.
- New features were added to the Company’s sportsbook OddsMatrix, including BetBuilder for American football and coverage of three more Esports titles.
- The Company initiated a determined welfare support programme for its Ukrainian staff.
“Throughout the events in Ukraine, our number one priority has been the health and safety of our colleagues, clients, and partners. We have managed our operations with minimal interruptions since Lviv is a development office and I am truly thankful for the aid from our employees and our wider ecosystem,” comments Ebbe Groes.
EveryMatrix has a solid sales pipeline with promising opportunities across the globe.
“The strength of the EveryMatrix team, the number of active leads, client wins and launches, and new product features, together with our continued investments, both organically and through M&A, make me confident about our growth and financial performance in 2022 and beyond,” concludes Ebbe Groes.
KingMakers goes live with EveryMatrix CasinoEngine
KingMakers’ betting brand BetKing, has gone live with CasinoEngine, giving Nigerian players access to the industry’s largest casino content library through a single integration.
EveryMatrix’s iGaming platform will aim to significantly grow BetKing into a world-class, multi vertical, digital entertainment experience with access to an ever-growing portfolio of thousands of best performing games.
BetKing will also integrate JackpotEngine and BonusEngine to further boost the gaming experience through flexible and configurable jackpot customisation and a variety of industry-leading player reward and bonus management features.
Nigeria’s total onshore online betting and gaming gross win for 2023 is estimated to be €560 million, according to H2 Gambling Capital, with the onshore market predicted to double in three years.
Stian Enger, Head of CasinoEngine, EveryMatrix, said: “The sky’s the limit in terms of potential for BetKing and we’re very excited to go live and accelerate the brand’s casino growth in the months and years to come.
“The brand has leading sports betting market share and I’m confident that in a short space of time the same will be said for casino thanks to the power of CasinoEngine and its best-in-class acquisition and retention capabilities.”
Lauren Holder, Head of Gaming at KingMakers, said: “From signing the deal six months ago to go live has been a very smooth process and it’s been a pleasure working with our partners at EveryMatrix.
“The Nigerian and wider iGaming African market is an area we believe has huge promise and, together with EveryMatrix’s leading productivity platform and the wide variety of flexible content options and revenue boosting functionality it offers, we believe the opportunities are endless.”
EveryMatrix JackpotEngine gains MGA approval
EveryMatrix gamification solution JackpotEngine, that provides brands with the power to add a configurable jackpot layer to any game, has received a Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) approval.
MGA approval will enable EveryMatrix to offer and integrate its innovative product to potentially hundreds of Malta-licensed brands.
JackpotEngine, integrated via EveryMatrix productivity platform CasinoEngine, is a complete Jackpot Management System that allows operators to seamlessly create, configure and control their own jackpots for any selection of games across any casino vertical and player segment significantly boosting acquisition and retention rates.
The product boosts acquisition and creates an incentive for players to remain loyal to a brand for increased retention and lifetime value. Each game round offers additional excitement with more chances to win for prolonged game sessions.
GAME ROUND AND BET SIZE UPLIFT
A comparison of game session metrics for two like-for-like EveryMatrix customers examining games before and after they were assigned to a JackpotEngine powered jackpot has shown extremely positive results, with the number of rounds per session increasing 25% and 11% and average bet amount climbing 30% and 50% respectively.
Built for regulated markets JackpotEngine offers the possibility to remain fully compliant where traditional bonusing is either limited or not an option.
Operators have complete control over the selection of games where a jackpot is offered as well as player segmentation, winning probability, seed amounts, winning cap, contribution distribution, and the split of contribution funding between operators and players, while also accessing real-time monitoring and reporting of jackpot transactions.
Stian Enger, Head of CasinoEngine, EveryMatrix, said: “The testing we’ve done in the first phase of release has shown exceptional uplift in game rounds, session times and bet size so we’re confident JackpotEngine will be a game changer.
“I’m delighted with the MGA approval and this will significantly boost the product’s roll out in the months to come.”
JackpotEngine is available to EveryMatrix operators either via CasinoEngine, or pure B2B aggregation solution SlotMatrix and its entire library of content, including 140+ integrations from 250+ game studios across multiple verticals.

We have several large-scale projects underway including a successful platform migration and new look sportsbook for bet-at-home, with Germany to come shortly, and the launch of the Hungarian lottery’s new digital sports offering later this year.
