Esports Entertainment (NASDAQ:GMBL) stock is rising higher on Wednesday without any recent news from the online betting company.

However, investors will note that GMBL stock is seeing heavy trading volume this morning. As of this writing, more than 13 million shares of the company’s stock have changed hands. That’s already over its daily average trading volume of about 11 million shares.

Adding to that, this is the second day in a row that GMBL stock has rallied alongside heavy trading. It also rocketed 88.1% higher on Tuesday as about 300 million shares of the stock were traded.

For the record, GMBL is firmly in the penny stock territory. It trades in the 10-cent range and has a market capitalization of $12.322. These both mean it’s susceptible to volatility, especially during pre-market trading hours.
