They recently announced to the world that their subsidiary, NetEnt Americas LLC had been granted the Interactive Gaming Manufacturer Conditional Licence directly by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.
New Regulated Market
The online casino market in Pennsylvania is still in its infancy. Indeed, the state only approved online casino gambling in October 2017 after a bill was passed through their state legislature.
Gaining this licence, therefore, is a fantastic coup for NetEnt who will have the opportunity to deliver their award-winning online slots and casino games to a market that is not yet saturated with other providers.
They will really get the chance to demonstrate exactly what they can do to customers in the state before other developers get the chance to.
With 13 million people living within its borders, Pennsylvania is the fifth biggest state in the USA. It is also the second largest state to legalise online casino gambling.
This leaves NetEnt with a huge market to tap into, and with them being one of the first to take a shot at it, they really are onto a winner. If you add in the fact that land-based casinos are also hugely popular in the state and that it is considered likely that this love for the casino will translate to the online world too, you can see why NetEnt are delighted with their licensing win.
NetEnt have already signed agreements with a number of casino operators who will be delivering services within Pennsylvania, so gamblers in the Pennsylvania area should find it easy to get access to their wide range of games.
There hasn’t yet been any news in regard to release dates but it is hoped that NetEnt games will be ready to go once the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board announces the market opening date. One thing is for sure, exciting times are ahead for gamblers in Pennsylvania.
