Gaming operator PlayStar has secured an agreement with Caesars Entertainment that'll allow the company to offer online casino games in the state of Indiana, should the state legalize the activity.
The Hoosier State currently only allows for online sportsbetting, but it appears that lawmakers are eyeing legalizing casino games as well. The state recently published a report that said that the industry could generate $469 million in revenue in its first year, eventually growing to $830 million or beyond. This would give the state the ability to generate millions in tax revenues for education or general programs.
PlayStar is currently live in the state of New Jersey, where it operates a casino that's powered by Gaming Innovation Group's platform.
Regarding the deal PlayStar Chief Business Development Officer Adam Noble said, "Although it's early days, we have seen very promising results after our New Jersey launch, and we're very confident of replicating this in each market we enter.
"The addition of Indiana now, pre regulation, will not only increase our total accessible market, but also give us the chance to go live in that market from day one, standing shoulder to shoulder with our peers.
"We continue to seek out further market access opportunities that align to our 'casino-first' product strategy."
