NetEnt applies for Pennsylvania gaming license
NetEnt has applied for a license with The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) to supply local operators with its world-leading online casino games.
In October 2017, the Pennsylvania state legislature approved a bill that allows online casino gambling. Now NetEnt has filed the application to The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) for a license to be able to deliver its award-winning table and slots game portfolio to Pennsylvania casinos for their online casino operations.
Pennsylvania is the second large US state to regulate online casino and with almost 13 million people, it is the fifth largest state by population. The state has a long tradition of gambling on the land-based side, with players generating relatively high gross game revenue per capita.
Erik Nyman, Managing Director NetEnt Americas LLC, comments: “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.”
