Increasing 2021 Revenue Guidance

RSI expects revenues for the full year ending December 31, 2021 to be between $420 and $460 million, up from our previous guidance of $320 million. At the midpoint of the range, revenue of $440 million represents 58% year-over-year expected revenue growth when compared to $278.5 million of revenues for 2020. This increase reflects our strong Q4 2020 results and anticipated growth in recently opened and existing markets resulting from increased marketing spend funded with cash on hand.

This range is based on certain assumptions, including that (i) all professional and college sports calendars that have been announced come to fruition, including the commencement of their 2020 to 2021 seasons, (ii) we continue to operate in states in which we are live today, and (iii) we do not launch operations in any new jurisdictions.
