Australian gaming company PointsBet has been granted a gaming license by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board and will be able to offer their sportsbetting services in the Keystone State.

The company has already partnered up with Penn National Gaming, and will provide its sportsbetting services to those 21 and older throughout the state. The company is already live in multiple other states, including Colorado, Illinois, New Jersey, Michigan, West Virginia, Indiana, and others.

PointsBet has been entering into sponsorships and partnerships throughout the United States to build its brand. The most prominent is a 5-year deal with NBC Sports, which sees the operator providing odds on broadcasts including Sunday Night Football and PGA Golf events.

Regarding the licensing PoinstBet USA CEO Johnny Aitken said, "We are excited to be inching closer to officially offering PointsBet's market-leading products to sports fans and bettors in Pennsylvania in partnership with Penn National Gaming.

"With Pennsylvania ranking among the top five sports betting states in the nation, PointsBet is thrilled to be able to soon establish its presence in this lucrative market, and we are appreciative of the support we've received from the state of Pennsylvania and the great people at the Gaming Control Board."

"We ultimately seek to provide customers in Pennsylvania with the best-in-class sports betting and online casino experience."

The sportsbook will likely be opening in the immediate future, but no date was given by the company.
