Bingo.com Announces 2013 Year End Results

ANGUILLA, BRITISH WEST INDIES -- (Marketwired) -- 01/24/14 -- Bingo.com, Ltd. (OTCQB: BNGOF), owner of the popular online gaming community http://www.bingo.com, today announced its unaudited financial results for the fourth quarter and the year ended December 31, 2013. All amounts are presented in United States dollars and in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.

Recent Bingo.com highlights include:

--  Total revenue increased to $1,938,699 for the year ended December 31,
    2013, an increase of 10% over revenue of $1,765,828 for the same period
    in the prior year.
--  Total loss for the year ending December 31, 2013 was $814,178 compared
    to a loss of $46,235 for the year ending 2012.
--  Completed transition to new desktop gaming platform in Q4 which enables
    a mobile and tablet solution to launch in the first quarter of 2014.
--  Finalized beta testing of Trophy Bingo, our social casino game and
    completed preparations for a world wide launch on Android mobiles and
    tablets in the first quarter of 2014.
--  Two separate financings in 2013 for a total of 2,000,000 common shares
    at $0.45 per share raising $900,000 in total.

"2013 was filled with highs and lows for Bingo.com," said Jason Williams, the Company's CEO. "During the year, we were completely focused on two strategic initiatives; to increase revenue in our cash gaming business, and to spearhead the development of our social casino game Trophy Bingo."

"We invested heavily in our marketing campaigns with mixed results. While we believe our position within established markets has improved, player values have weakened. Increased competition and significant inflation in media prices have combined to make the environment more challenging."

"While the cash gambling market has opportunities, we believe that the social casino sector currently has more potential for a bingo focused product. Trophy Bingo will be a totally unique bingo game in the market and features patent-pending game mechanics. Development on Trophy Bingo continues at a rapid pace and we anticipate our first platform world wide release to be very soon."

"2014 will be a pivotal year for Bingo.com with the power of the Bingo.com URL harnessed under both of our business segments. The gambling business will finally be supported with a mobile product suite and Trophy Bingo will reach a global audience on multiple platforms. We continue to believe in our strategy and look forward to the year ahead."

Total revenue increased to $1,938,699 for the year ended December 31, 2013, an increase of 10% over revenue of $1,765,828 for the same period in the prior year. Gaming revenue increased to $1,913,566 for the year ended December 31, 2013, an increase of 11% over gaming revenue of $1,721,135 for the same period in the prior year. This increase compared to the prior year is due to an increase in players to the website as a result of increased marketing, especially in the first quarter of 2013. Advertising Revenue decreased to $25,133 for the year ended December 31, 2013, a decrease of 44% over revenue of $44,693 for the same period in the prior year.

Operating costs before interest, and depreciation expenses, including sales and marketing and general and administrative expenses increased to $2,748,176 for the year ended 2013, an increase of 52% over operating expenses of $1,807,558 for the year ended 2012. The increase in operating expenses compared to the year ended 2012, is primarily due to a 78% increase in marketing expenses.

Sales and marketing expenses were $2,168,031 for the year ended 2013, an increase of 78% over expenses of $1,217,416 for the year ended 2012. Sales and marketing expenses principally include costs for television marketing, Search Engine Optimization expenses, prizes for our players and other bonuses and incentives offered to gaming players. This large increase in sales and marketing expenses in 2013 did not prove as effective as anticipated and the ineffective Television campaigns have been terminated.

The net loss after taxation for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013, amounted to $814,178, a loss of ($0.01) per share, compared to a net loss of ($46,235) or ($0.00) per share in the twelve months ending December 31, 2012.

We had cash of $491,203 and working capital of $619,699 at December 31, 2013. This compares to cash of $876,004 and working capital of $1,640,713 at December 31, 2012.
