­­BonusFinder.com has extended its West Virginia license to include igaming, marking its seventh US affiliate approval in less than a year. The rapidly growing performance marketing firm was granted a sports betting license to operate in West Virginia in May this year.

Founded in 2019 with a goal to allow people to ‘play with more’ at their favorite casino or sportsbook, BonusFinder.com claims to have made huge in-roads in the rapidly growing US market. The firm is also a finalist in the Casino Affiliate of the year at the SBC Awards 2020.

The company’s expanded igaming certification in West Virginia – the seventh approval in six US states in less than a year – adds to existing licenses in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Colorado and most recently soon-to-be regulated Tennessee, with each market showing fast growth since launch.

West Virginia regulated online and mobile sports betting in August 2019 and currently has five brands live with online and mobile betting options. According to the state regulator’s latest figures, its licensed casinos saw total wagers from sports betting and igaming grow to a combined $151.9m in September 2020. Total wagers increased to $77m for the five-week period ended October 3, comprising $17.7m from retail sports betting and $59.2m from online sports betting.

Fintan Costello, Managing Director at BonusFinder.com, said: “This year has seen us rapidly grow our footprint in the US and I’m delighted with our progress so far.

“US online sports betting has made huge strides in 2020, and igaming is quickly building up momentum with more states recognising that by combining common sense regulation and a superior offering, players can enjoy first-class entertainment while also being protected.

“We are strong advocates of helping players ‘play with more’ within a safe and responsible environment and are confident other states will follow the example of West Virginia, New Jersey and Pennsylvania where a superior online product offering is benefiting consumers and operators.”
