21.032019NetEnt Expand into Key US State
NetEnt are one of the biggest and most innovative developers in the world, and they could be set to expand their reach even further thanks to a conditional license from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.
The license, an Interactive Gaming Manufacturer Conditional License, doesn’t give them concrete access to the world’s biggest potential gambling market, but it will allow them to offer games in Pennsylvania for the foreseeable future and potentially beyond that.
Pennsylvania is the second largest state to regulate online casinos and NetEnt will be given the chance to appeal to over 13 million people in total. That’s more than the population of Greece, and could help NetEnt to grow significantly, while also preparing it to access additional markets if the US gambling landscape continues to change.
The agreement means that NetEnt will be able to provide their vast catalog of games to many operators in the state. It doesn’t give them the right to establish casinos of their own, but rather to offer games though other operators. It also means that players in the state of Pennsylvania will now find NetEnt games on many casinos.
This is big news for players, as NetEnt have some of the biggest and best games in the industry, ones that we have applauded many times on this site. In fact, in our online casino reviews section we often make a point of praising those casinos that work with NetEnt (in addition to brands like BetSoft and Yggdrasil Gaming) and criticize those that do not.
NetEnt has already signed agreements with operators in the state of Pennsylvania, as the license processing period began 6 months ago, giving them more than enough time to prepare.
At the time of writing they are not yet in operation and no dates have been put forward, but it seems likely that the first steps will be taken this year.
