The decrease in operating expenses, compared to the first quarter of 2014, is due to a reduced media budget in the second quarter of 2014 compared to the larger media expenditures in the first quarter of 2014. In the first quarter of 2014, the Company ceased to capitalize the development of Trophy Bingo and commenced expensing the current development costs. Therefore, this increased the operating costs in the second quarter of 2014 compared to the second quarter of 2013.
