Irish betting firm Paddy Power has announced that it has submitted an application for an online gaming license within the state of New Jersey, a move that would give the popular betting site a license in two US states.
Paddy Power currently operates a small US team in the country, which tries to find the best way to translate the firm's success from Europe over to America.
Commenting on the move the Company's Communications Director Paddy Power said, "We want to make sure that we're in place and ready. We have applied for the license to be in there, and we'll then see what is viable. We're putting ourselves in position."
