Gambling software development firm Playtech has announced it will be providing its casino product to the New Jersey market having been granted regulatory approval by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (“DGE”).

As a result, the firm will go live soon in the Garden State under its transactional waiver with bet365 and Hard Rock Atlantic City, with the organization also expecting to launch with additional operators there in the near future. 

In addition to this, Playtech has also started the licensing process in other US jurisdictions.

Playtech CEO, Mor Weizer, commented: “This is a major milestone for Playtech. We are delighted to have met the stringent regulatory requirements of the DGE and to be launching in New Jersey with our long-standing strategic partner bet365. 

“The US is a highly strategic market for Playtech and we see significant demand for the full breadth of our product offering. 

“We are initially launching our online casino product in New Jersey and over time will increase our products on offer to include Sports, platform, and Live Casino and we will continue to expand into further states as they regulate. This is the first step for Playtech in the US and we are very excited about the long-term opportunity.”
