NetEnt to Roll out Games on DraftKings Casino in Pennsylvania
DraftKings is in the process of expanding its online casino in Pennsylvania with a fresh addition of NetEnt slots and games.
DraftKings to Launch NetEnt Games on Pennsylvanian Casino
Supplier of casino games and technology NetEnt has expanded on an existing deal with U.S. industry betting and gambling firm DraftKings. As per the new agreement, the companies will work together in Pennsylvania where NetEnt will roll out its portfolio of games on the DraftKings’ online casino, a statement sent to the press said.
The companies have also decided to pursue further opportunities in West Virginia by launching more games on the local market. These partnerships are a direct response to an already successful initiative in New Jersey.
In August 2019, NetEnt Americas LLC, the U.S. subsidiary of the company, launched a number of approved games on the U.S. market. The company is in a unique position to provide DraftKings with the quality gaming product it needs. Specifically, NetEnt is present in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey via partnerships with local land-based operators. NetEnt entered the Keystone State following approval by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) in July 2019.
Commenting on the latest expansion move, NetEnt VP President Commercial, Americas, Brian Kraft said that the company was thrilled to add another esteemed partner to its ranks.
NetEnt’s Global Presence Grows
NetEnt’s U.S. footprint has been increasing by forging high-profile partnerships in regulated gaming markets. As the leading supplier of casino products in the country, NetEnt has been building and reconfiguring its operations and expanding its clout in the United States.
Previously, the company signed a content distribution partnership with Scientific Games with the latter boosting NetEnt’s products by adding them onto the OpenGaming platform. Earlier this week, Gaming Realms, a developer of social gaming solutions, successfully approached NetEnt to transform Gonzo’s Quest into a slingo product.
At the beginning of October, NetEnt made another big stride in its native market of Sweden by launching its live dealer offer with Svenska Spel. Live gaming is a segment where NetEnt has been making progress, following a buyout bid by Evolution Gaming back in June, 2020.
NetEnt will bring an A-grade selection of games to DraftKings’ casino skin, including Gonzo’s Quest, Starburst, and Divine Fortune.
