Gaming Innovation Group (GiG) is now approved by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) to serve as an interactive gaming manufacturer for regulated gaming operators in the Keystone State.

This marks the 26th regulated market for GiG. The company has another nine in the pipeline. GiG offers its Player Account Management (PAM) and sportsbook system within those jurisdictions.

“The addition of a Pennsylvania authorization to our ever-expanding list of supported markets is testament of the focus that GiG has placed on regulated markets which we strongly believe underpins sustainable and prosperous growth within the online igaming industry. Pennsylvania will play a key role in our plans for expansion in North America, and we are delighted to power our partners with our award-winning technology in the region,” said GiG General Counsel Claudio Caruana said in a release.

Pennsylvania’s online casino and sports betting industry continues to grow in its fourth year of operation. In July, online casinos generated over $123 million in revenue. Sportsbooks accepted $336.5 million in bets with a surprisingly high $33.2 million in revenue. Those combined revenues put the state ahead of Michigan but behind New Jersey for the month.

GiG’s Pennsylvania news comes the same week as the official rollout of the GiG-powered PlayStar online casino in New Jersey. The online site launched under Ocean Resort’s online casino license.
