INVESTMENT IN THE US
GiG doesn ’ t break out its media services revenues by geography but it did speak once again in its report about its efforts in the US , saying it now holds licences in 17 US states and continues to pursue its long-term strategy of investing in its premium websites wsn . com and casinotopsonline . com .
