Swedish online gaming system supplier NetEnt has been granted a permanent Casino Service Industry Enterprise license from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (NJDGE). The company has been operating in the Garden State since 2015 under a transactional waiver from the NJDGE.

In a statement, the company explained: “NetEnt, through its subsidiary NetEnt Americas LLC, applied for a Casino Service Industry Enterprise license in the US state of New Jersey in 2015. In September 2015, NetEnt obtained a transactional waiver by the NJDGE, granting the right to supply online casino games in New Jersey while the full license application was being reviewed. NetEnt today announces the grant of its first online gaming license in the US issued by the NJDGE.

Erik Nyman, Managing Director NetEnt Americas LLC, commented: “We are very pleased to obtain our first permanent online gaming license in the US. We have been present in New Jersey since 2015 and have supported the regulator throughout the licensing process.

He added: “The license marks yet another step in our US expansion as we hope to enter additional states if and when they regulate online casino.”
