KAX Media America, the US subsidiary of Gambling.com Group, has received approval from both the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board and the West Virginia Lottery to provide services to licensed gaming operators in the respective states.

The approvals allow the group to execute commercial agreements with online sports betting, online casino and online poker operators in Pennsylvania and West Virginia which were among the first movers, following New Jersey, to enable legal, regulated sports betting post-PASPA. 

In both Pennsylvania and West Virginia, the group can now strike commercial deals including revenue share arrangements with licensed gaming operators. Although active in New Jersey since early 2017, the group announced earlier this year that it secured approval to create revenue sharing arrangements in New Jersey.

CEO Charles Gillespie commented: “We will seek the necessary licenses and approvals in all US states that decide to properly regulate online gambling with a mobile offering and a competitive landscape. As the American market grows, it’s critical to have resources like Gambling.com and Bookies.com in the conversation to steer consumers toward the safe and regulated gaming environment. With a massive population of die-hard sports fans, Pennsylvania will surely become one of the largest sports betting markets in the US.”
