Swedish based NetEnt is looking to expand further into the US market, having applied for a licence to provide its content in the state of Pennsylvania.

The firm’s Pennsylvania ambition comes after it already signed a customer agreement with the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, for the provision online games to New Jersey’s regulated online casino market.

At the time, Björn Krantz, Chief Commercial Officer of NetEnt, stated: “I am thrilled about the prospects of working together with Hard Rock to offer our award-winning games to their online casino players in New Jersey. Hard Rock has a strong global brand and I look forward to supporting them to grow their new online casino business.”

Commenting on NetEnt’s pursuit of progress in Pennsylvania, NetEnt Americas managing director Erik Nyman detailed: “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.”
