NetEnt signs New Jersey supplier deal with Churchill Downs

NetEnt has entered into a customer agreement with Churchill Downs to supply content to the operator in the New Jersey online casino market.

The deal expands NetEnt’s presence in New Jersey after the supplier already formed partnerships with Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, Hard Rock Atlantic City and Tropicana.

Erik Nyman, Managing Director of NetEnt Americas, said: “We are excited to start delivering our popular game titles to Churchill Downs, probably most known for its iconic flagship horse-racing event, the Kentucky Derby.

“With our thrilling game titles, I am confident that we will be an important contributor to growth in online casino for Churchill Downs.”

In May, Churchill Downs announced plans to launch online sports betting and casinos in New Jersey during the first quarter of 2019.

In the same month, the operator entered in an agreement with SBTech, which will now provide its platform for the launch.

Ian Williams,President of Churchill Downs Interactive, said: “There is no doubt NetEnt games have proven to be player favourites in every market they have been deployed.

“We are looking forward to adding hit titles Jumanji, Starburst and Gonzo’s Quest to offer the best possible experience to our players.”
