Cherry reported strong revenue growth in all business areas during 2017, revealing  double digit year-on-year rises in the areas of game development, online marketing and gaming technology but it was online gaming revenues which led the way in 2017.

Online gaming revenues reported a triple digit rise of 118%, rising from $99,008 in 2016 to a 2017 high of $216,678.
