NetEnt is ready to enter the Pennsylvania gaming market after signing its first customer in the state, Penn National Gaming.

NetEnt Breaks Pennsylvania Ice

Ahead of the launch of regulated iGaming in the state, Swedish leading provider of digital casino solutions NetEnt has scooped its first customer agreement in Pennsylvania. They are currently in the midst of securing a license in the state to be prepared to go live as soon as the market opens.

The provider signed Penn Online Entertainment, a subsidiary of Penn National Gaming’s Penn International Ventures. Under the terms of the deal NetEnt will deliver a mix of table games, video slots and jackpot games to the operator’s customers in Pennsylvania.

“This deal marks NetEnt’s first customer signing for Pennsylvania and is an important step in our growth strategy in North America,” said Erik Nyman, managing director NetEnt Americas. “I look forward to our collaboration with Penn National and believe that our entertaining online games will be much appreciated by players in Pennsylvania.”

Busy Period for Penn National Gaming

It’s been a busy fall for Penn National Gaming. Earlier this month, they signed a customer agreement with Churchill Downs to supply content to the operator in the New Jersey online casino market and completed the acquisition of Pinnacle Entertainment for $2.8 billion.

Online gaming going live in Pennsylvania is the next thing on their list and NetEnt is the perfect partner since it’s been a true pioneer in driving the market since its inception in 1996. Penn National Gaming operates 40 facilities in 18 jurisdictions, 1,200 table games and approximately 49,400 gaming machines.

Chris Sheffield, managing director of Penn Interactive Ventures and senior vice president of Penn National Gaming, commented the agreement with great joy.

 “We are pleased to offer NetEnt’s portfolio of online games to our HollywoodCasino.com customers and look forward to partnering with NetEnt to launch online gaming in Pennsylvania.”

NetEnt’s presence in New Jersey will be positively affected with this deal since the supplier already has partnerships with various casinos including  Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, Hard Rock Atlantic City and Tropicana.
