Wazdan secures igaming license in West Virginia


Wazdan has secured a Lottery iGaming Interim Supplier License in West Virginia, clearing the way for the casino games developer to provide products to operators in the state.

The approval will enable Wazdan to offer its games to players throughout West Virginia, including titles such as Sizzling 777 Deluxe, Lucky Reels, Space Spins, Power of Gods: The Pantheon and Magic Stars 3.

The license comes after Wazdan in May secured a transactional waiver to launch in New Jersey, while in recent months the supplier has been approved to launch in Greece and Belarus.

In addition, Wazdan has applied for licenses in both Michigan and Pennsylvania.

“The US market continues to hit incredible heights and it’s a market we’ve already enjoyed some success in,” Wazdan chief executive Michal Imiolek said. “Gaining our West Virginia licence is an important milestone for us, and we’re extremely eager to see what we can accomplish in the state.

“With so much more on the horizon for us in North America, it is a hugely exciting time for Wazdan, and we look forward to achieving even more in the US.”

Wazdan also holds licenses in Great Britain, Malta and Romania, while it is certified in a host of other markets including Denmark, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland and Colombia.

West Virginia opened its legal igaming market in July 2020, with DraftKings the first operator to launch an online casino in the state.

BetMGM, Caesars, FanDuel and BetRivers also offer igaming in West Virginia, while WynnBet this month gained market access in the state for online sportsbook and casino operations via a partnership with Delaware North.
