The upcoming launch of the PokerStars betting brand in New Jersey will feature software from Swedish developer Net Ent, as the two groups have signed a content deal.
PokerStars parent company Amaya Gaming was recently granted an online gaming license in New Jersey, and Net Ent is able to offer games in the Garden State under a transactional waiver. The content deal will see Net Ent slots being offered through the PokerStars platform.
Commenting on the agreement Net Ent Americas Managing Director Björn Krantz said, "I am very pleased that we have been able to extend our successful partnership with Amaya's extremely popular gaming brand PokerStars to also include the regulated online casino market in New Jersey. PokerStars is one of the biggest online gaming power houses in the world, and the agreement is yet more proof of the trust and confidence that exist in NetEnt's operational and portfolio capabilities. I am confident that PokerStars' US player community will enjoy the enhanced player experience offered through our game portfolio."
Amaya Gaming's Director of Casino Sam Hobcraft added: "We're pleased to extend our successful global partnership with NetEnt to the New Jersey market. Integrating NetEnt's top tier games will be an important part of developing into one of the leaders in online casino in New Jersey."
PokerStars is set to launch its New Jersey betting product in the near future, bringing casino and poker games to New Jersey. The company is the biggest poker brand in the world, and brings a large reputation to the country's largest online betting market.
