What Else Is Moving EBET Stock
Investors will also keep in mind that EBET’s main business is gambling. The company offers betting at casinos, as well as sports wagering. That’s worth noting as we just came out of Super Bowl weekend. It’s likely Super Bowl LVII taking place on Sunday increased interest in the sports betting company, which would help explain the increase in trading volume this morning.
EBET stock is up 24.5% as of Monday morning.
