Wind Creek Hospitality, the gaming and hospitality arm of the Poarch Band of Creek Indians (PCI Gaming), has partnered with Swedish online casino software provider NetEnt in a deal that will see it gain access to the firm’s games portfolio for launch in Pennsylvania’s burgeoning iGaming market.
After in August adding real money gaming (RMG) options to its existing free-to-play social casino platform, the land-based operator is now able to offer NetEnt’s market-favorite casino games to online players. Included are its range of table games along with its progressive jackpot slot Divine Fortune, which since being released in January 2017 the ancient Greece-themed title has become a top performer in local markets.
Chief Marketing Officer for Wind Creek Hospitality, Ken Rohman, commented on the deal, saying…
“It’s an exciting time to be adding iGaming to our offering in Pennsylvania’s online arena, and with NetEnt’s portfolio of market favourite casino games we are in a strong position to quickly gain market share. We look forward to working with their knowledgeable team to build on our offering and deliver a first-rate online experience to our players.”
The new collaboration further increases NetEnt’s market share in the northeastern U.S. state, where it has significantly increased its footprint since debuting there in 2019. Pennsylvania has proven to be a highly successful market for the Stockholm-headquartered company, providing “consistent quarterly growth.”
NetEnt Vice President Commercial, Americas, Brian Kraft, also commented on the freshly-inked deal in a company press release stating…
“It’s a major achievement to be supporting Wind Creek in its online journey.
“The deal underlines our status as a go-to supplier in Pennsylvania both with established operators and emerging brands. Given the strong performance of our content with local players, this partnership will no doubt see Wind Creek make a big impact in the online landscape.”
West Virginia & BetMGM:
In addition to launching its latest title Rage of the Seas, NetEnt also recently announced its new colaboration with GVC Group and MGM Resorts-backed iGaming group BetMGM that will see it launch its award-winning games in West Virginia, where on July 15, 2020, the doors were opened to online casinos.
The Sweidsh company was awarded a temporary license from regulating authorities in the eastern U.S. state where BetMGM will soon launch the developer’s content. It will be the first time the developer’s internationally renowned content will be accessible in one of the key U.S. markets.
