NetEnt’s US subsidiary obtained an Interactive Gaming Manufacturer Conditional License by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB), enabling the provider to deliver its online games in the recently-regulated online gambling market of Pennsylvania.

NetEnt earlier announced it had signed customer agreements with several gambling operators in the state and is preparing to launch its games as soon as the market opens, according to a press statement by the company. A formal market opening date has not yet been announced by the PGCB, however.

“We are very pleased to be in the first round of approved vendors to conduct online gaming in Pennsylvania. This fits well with our strategy to be live with our products on the first day of market opening,” says Erik Nyman, Managing Director of NetEnt Americas LLC.

NetEnt also signed an agreement with Parx Casino in Pennsylvania, as Business Malta earlier reported. NetEnt games will be delivered via the GAN platform.

In October 2017, the Pennsylvania state legislature approved a bill that allows online casino gambling. The state has a long tradition of gambling on the land-based side.

Pennsylvania is the second US state to regulate online casino, and with almost 13 million people, it is the fifth largest state by population.

NetEnt Americas LLC is a US subsidiary of NetEnt AB, providing gaming solutions to online casino operators. NetEnt is listed on NASDAQ Stockholm (NET–B) and employs 1,000 people in Malta, Stockholm, Kiev, Krakow, Gothenburg, Gibraltar and New Jersey
