Online betting group NetEnt has been granted a Casino Service Industry Enterprise by New Jersey's Division of Gaming Enforcement, which serves as a permanent license in the jurisdiction.
The company has been operating in New Jersey for nearly three years under a transactional (or temporary) waiver while the license was being reviewed. The new license will allow them to continue working within the Garden State, making it easier to sign on new operators. The license is the first permanent U.S. one for NetEnt in the American market, and the group works with 888, Caesars, Resorts Casino, the Golden Nugget, and Stars Group within New Jersey.
Commenting on the license NetEnt Americas Managing Director Erik Nyman said, "We have been present in New Jersey since 2015 and have supported the regulator throughout the licensing process. The license marks yet another step in our US expansion as we hope to enter additional states if and when they regulate online casino."
