Net Ent Gets British Columbia Gaming License

Internet gaming group Net Ent has announced that it's been granted a gaming license by the Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch in British Columbia, allowing it to provide games to the British Columbia Lottery Corporation, which has the sole licensed gaming site in the province.

The licensing will see Net Ent able to provide the BCLC's PlayNow.com, which is run by the province itself, with their full stable of games such as Gonzo's Quest, Star Burst, Jack Hammer, and more. The supplier will also include mobile titles to the gaming site, whose profits go toward public causes such as education and healthcare.

Speaking about the licensing NetEnt CEO Per Eriksson said, "I am very pleased that we have reached yet another important milestone in our expansion on regulated markets. We are the online casino supplier with the largest presence on regulated markets in terms of number of licenses and certifications that we hold, and entering the province of British Columbia in Canada is another important step for us."

Well this will probably improve Netents' revenue even more. This is a really nice thing for them and shows that they will never stop.

It could be an important break trough for NetEnt on the market across the see, as far as I know their main business is in Europe but that doesn't mean they won't targeting new markets, certainly one of the companies that developing strongly in this business.
