Swedish casino game developer NetEnt announced this week that they've filed an application with the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board to obtain a license that would allow them to provide online casino games in the state.
The application was made on Wednesday and would allow the company to offer online slots and table games to their partners in the state. Pennsylvania is in the process of legalizing and regulating online betting, perhaps becoming the largest state in the union to offer the activity. Thus far, 11 of 13 casinos in the state have applied for an online gaming license, and more licenses will be opened to out of state operators later this year. Online betting is set to be offered to players later this year or early next year.
Commenting on the application NetEnt's Erik Nyman said, "We have enjoyed success in New Jersey and believe that this will continue in Pennsylvania. We will launch with a mix of our table games, video slots, jackpot games and unique features like free spins that have been greatly appreciated by our customers and their players. Our ambition is to be live in Pennsylvania as soon as the market opens."
