Gambling software developer NetEnt has received the go ahead from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement to launch its casino games with casino partners Borgata and bwin.party.
Having applied for a licence earlier this year, NetEnt Americas LLC was awarded a transactional waiver. This will allow them to go offer its game content to players through its suppliers while its full licence application is under review.
Before going live, NetEnt will take time to ensure that they can cope with capacity and infrastructure needs in New Jersey, before going fully live in the US state.
NetEnt is still seeking transactional waivers for other operators they applied for, which include Golden Nugget and Caesars Interactive Entertainment. As the process is done individually, they may have to wait a little longer to be granted these.
Björn Krantz, managing director of NetEnt Americas LLC, said: “The approval of the transactional waiver for Borgata and bwin.party in New Jersey marks yet another milestone in our efforts to successfully go to market and build a long-term presence in North America.”
“We are working in close collaboration with our partners and the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement to secure that necessary administration is taken to successfully go live as soon as possible.”
