LONDON, UK / ACCESSWIRE / April 13, 2021 / Gamesys Group plc (LSE:GYS) (the 'Group') announces an update on Q1 trading for the three month period ending 31 March 2021.

The Group is pleased to report a strong performance in Q1 2021, with total revenues of £197.8m representing an increase of 27% compared to Q1 2020.
