NetEnt Ready To Go Live In Pennsylvania

Mia Gardner | 14 Feb 2019

The US state of Pennsylvania has not wasted any time in sorting out its own regulatory affairs. Now that sportsbetting and online gambling are legal in the United States, many of the country’s states are following in New Jersey’s footsteps. NetEnt has confirmed that it has entered into an agreement with Pennsylvania-based Parx Casino, right on time and just ahead of the opening of the regulated online gambling market in the state.

It’s now very much a question of hurry-up and wait, but once the new market opens; the developer will be right as rain and ready as ever to offer its content and services. Parx Casino is owned and operated by Greenwood Gaming & Entertainment Inc., who also happens to own a major horseracing-betting venue as well as the largest casino complex in the state.

Full Of Zeal For US

NetEnt Americas LLC’s Managing Director, Erik Nyman, is looking forward to what the future holds, thanks to the potential that is locked up in the very paperwork. Nyman spoke frankly and openly about the brand’s interest in the US market, and said that it was this enthusiasm that had been the driving force behind the entire project.

So much so that the iGaming brand is ready and waiting on the official opening of the market. Nyman also said that he honestly believed that the agreement was a fair and reasonable two-way street because Parx Casino’s players now had real NetEnt magic to look forward to. The MD seemed confident that local Pennsylvanian players would greatly enjoy the developer’s entire library of games; no exceptions made.

A Two-Way Street

But Parx isn’t the first local online gaming site to have agreed on a content deal with NetEnt. Parx is in fact third in line to do so. What makes this particular deal extra special, and no doubt high on the priority list, is the fact that Parx is a recognised household name in the state.

Parx Casino’s SVP of iGaming and Sports, Matthew Cullen, reiterated what Nyman had said; that the agreement involves much more than just the riff-raff distribution of iGaming content. NetEnt, according to Cullen, is very much the casino’s first choice in terms of an online partner.

According to Cullen, Parx Casino is excited its new online adventure.
