NetEnt goes live in Pennsylvania


Casino games supplier NetEnt has rolled out its products in Pennsylvania, following the launch on legal online gambling in the US state.

NetEnt has signed agreements with a number of gambling operators in the state and has been preparing to launch its games for some time.

The supplier will operate in the state under an Interactive Gaming Manufacturer Conditional License that its NetEnt Americas subsidiary secured from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board in March.

It has deals in place with Penn National Gaming, which has launched igaming under its Hollywood Casino brand, and Greenwood Gaming and Entertainment’s Parx Casino. 

“I am very pleased that the market in Pennsylvania has now opened,” NetEnt Americas managing director, Erik Nyman, said. 

“We are one of the few online casino suppliers offering our games right from the start, and I am convinced that our award-winning online casino games will be much appreciated by players in Pennsylvania.”

The launch will come as a boost to NetEnt, which last week posted a year-on-year decline in revenue and operating profit in the first half of 2019.

Revenue for the six months through to June 30, 2019 amounted to SEK837m (£71.5m/€79.6m/$89.5m), down 3.4% from SEK867.3m in the corresponding period last year. NetEnt put this down to ongoing weak development in Nordic countries, again citing Sweden as a market of particular concern.
