PlayUp announce 2021 Melbourne Cup Day results

PlayUp are pleased to announce a successful Melbourne Cup Day, with both turnover and active clients growing significantly compared to 2020.

Year on year increases include:

  • +61.7% increase in turnover on the entire day
  • +22.3% increase in active clients
  • +110.3% increase in turnover on the Melbourne Cup race

PlayUp Australia CEO Paul Jeronimo said the positive results were due to an increased marketing focus with promotions, extra markets, CRM and a strong social media/ digital presence connecting with new and existing clients.

“Our team have been working hard to continually grow the PlayUp brand and create a product that delivers a great service for our clients. Our Melbourne Cup Day results are a testament to this strategy, and I look forward continuing to build on this momentum.”
