New York-listed Chinese lottery supplier 500.com said Thursday that it continues to work with the China Sports Lottery Administration Center to develop an online lottery sales management system, although the company’s results suffered as a result of a second successive quarter of zero revenue.

As a result of China’s provincial Sports Lottery Administration Center’s decision to temporarily suspend accepting online lottery orders earlier this year, 500.com did not generate any revenue from sports lottery sales during the second or third quarter of 2015.

Operating expenses were down 46 per cent year-on-year to RMB81.4m ($12.8m) due to a decrease in promotional and advertising expenses as a result of the temporary suspension, as a well decrease in share-based compensation expenses associated with share options granted to employees.
