PA or Bust: NetEnt hopes to power the first wave of Pennsylvania online casinos

Renowned game developer NetEnt has applied for a Pennsylvania gaming license.

NetEnt has made steps to enter the Pennsylvania online casino market with a new gaming license application.

The Swedish firm wants to be live at the first wave of casino websites when they launch later this year.

NetEnt announced midweek in a press release that they had applied for the license via the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board. 

If successful, they will supply online operators with their substantial catalog of online slots and table games.

That means we could see games like Starburst slots and Divine Fortunes slot at PA online casinos in the near future.

The developer has already enjoyed massive success in NJ. Their games are virtually available at every New Jersey online casino.

Erik Nyman, Managing Director NetEnt Americas LLC, said:

"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.”

Pennsylvania online gambling should go live later this year or in early 2019. Some operators have already been awarded licenses by the PGCB. This is thanks to legislation passed in October 2017 which aimed to expand gaming across the state. 

The new PA laws green lit online table games, slots, live dealer games - and even a state lottery. New land-based casino projects were also permitted. And several boons were given to existing casino. This included increasing the number of slots available to customers on premises.
