Online mega-star Net Entertainment is now offering their games to players situated within the borders of New Jersey in their first ever launch within the United States. The company signed licensing agreements with the Borgata and bwin.party brands in June and received a transactional waiver from the state earlier this month allowing them to take a selection of their games live. The transactional waiver allowed the company to launch its games while the license application is under review.
The NetEnt suite is now fully integrated into Borgata’s online casino and will soon launch on the bwin.party brand.
Björn Krantz, Managing Director of NetEnt Americas LLC said in a statement, “I am delighted to be live with Borgata online casino in New Jersey, and it marks a fantastic milestone achievement for NetEnt. I am confident that our games will offer Borgata’s player community the very best gaming experience. Through our extensive experience and knowledge within the field of online casino gaming, we will work closely with Borgata and the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement with the aim to responsibly drive the online casino market forward.”
Per Eriksson, CEO at NetEnt added, “We’ve focused on establishing our footprint in North America and our goal was set to be live during the second half of this year. I’m very pleased that we have delivered on our promise, and excited to follow and act on market opportunities going forward.”
Only players currently within the borders of New Jersey, residents and visitors alike, may play the games. Advanced geo-location technology and other safeguards are in place to ensure all online casinos licensed in the state comply with the law.
