NetEnt applies for gaming licence in Pennsylvania

NetEnt has announced it has applied for a licence from The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB).

Online casino gambling was legalised in Pennsylvania after a bill was passed in October 2017, making it the second-largest state in terms of population to regulate online casinos.

If Swedish supplier NetEnt’s licence application is approved, the company will be able to supply online casino operations with games from its table and slots portfolio in one of America’s most-promising gaming markets.

Erik Nyman, Managing Director NetEnt Americas LLC, the US subsidiary of NetEnt, said“We are excited to continue our strategic expansion in the US. We have enjoyed success in New Jersey and believe that this will continue in Pennsylvania.

“We will launch with a mix of our table games, video slots, jackpot games and unique features like free spins that have been greatly appreciated by our customers and their players. Our ambition is to be live in Pennsylvania as soon as the market opens.”

NetEnt has not only been expanding in the US. The company yesterday expanded into a new vertical through the beta-launch of its own affiliate business.
