Some of the main functionality in this type of dashboard is that it provides six different perspectives, including: 1) Revenue per game, 2) Monthly revenue trend, 3) Wagers per hour per game, 4) Monthly wagers trend, 5) Average bet per game, and 6) Monthly trend in average bets. You find an example of this type of dashboard below.
