CasinoNews.Today Legislation

NetEnt targets the US market after the company has applied for a license with The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) to supply local operators with its world-leading online casino games.

Back in October 2017, the Pennsylvania state legislature approved a bill that allows online casino gambling. Right now NetEnt has filed the application to The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) for a Pennsylvania gaming license to be able to bring its table and slots game portfolio to Pennsylvania casinos for their online casino operations.

Pennsylvania is the second big US state to regulate online casino. With population of 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 on Pennsylvania gaming license:

“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.”
