MULTIPLE REASONS TO 'BET ON US' (ELRAY'S BUSINESS SLOGAN)

MILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF WAGERING

Elray is already generating considerable gaming activity in a Licensed Live Dealer Casino Facility located in Manila as a result of its Joint Venture with its Junket Operators.

The JV has resulted in gaming revenues (Wagering) of greater than $68,000,000 over a 45 Day period and average of over 1.5 Million USD per day and a day high of $9,296,568 USD.

  • Continuing to build our operational gaming businesses and JV partnerships and acquiring additional gaming businesses that generate revenues.

These three essential strategies comprise our corporate strategy, define our standard for assessing performance, and shape all of our thinking.
