Segments of revenue
FLL's consolidated total revenues increased by 72.8% to $30.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2023, and by 42.3% to $53.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2023. This growth was primarily driven by the opening of The Temporary in February 2023, which contributed $23.9 million and $54.6 million to the respective three and nine-month periods. Additionally, the termination of two sports wagering agreements in September 2023 resulted in accelerated revenues of $5.8 million for both the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023.
FLL's strong revenue growth in the latest quarter can be attributed to the successful launch of The Temporary and the termination of certain sports wagering agreements. The opening of The Temporary generated significant revenue contributions, while the termination of the sports wagering agreements resulted in accelerated revenues. Management comments indicate that the Illinois Sports Agreement, which allows an unrelated third party to operate on-site and online sports betting in Illinois, also contributed positively to FLL's revenue growth.
Despite the overall revenue growth, FLL experienced a decline in gaming revenues of $1.9 million due to lower gaming volumes at its other properties. This decline in gaming revenues poses a challenge for the company and may require further evaluation and strategic adjustments.
