Online revenue came in at $5.9 million, up 28% following the launch of Real Money Gaming in New Jersey in April 2020. The company progressively went live with its innovative content amongst seven major operators during the period.

The company's bottom line suffered a loss, which related to currency impacts and other one-off non-recurring items. This included a non-cash impairment charge of $41.7 million.

Ainsworth ended the 2021 financial year with a cash balance of $42.7 million.
