He noted that, “Compared to 2020, it was a better year for Bloomberry as it was propped up by the domestic patronage which grew our mass gaming revenues by 43 percent and EBITDA by 265 percent.”

“While we look forward to better days ahead, we remain equipped to operate under challenging circumstances if they materialize,” he added.
