NetEnt Expands in Pennsylvania via Parx Deal

As Pennsylvania’s regulated online casino market is nearing its grand kick off, NetEnt is ramping up their presence in this eastern state by signing a multi-year contract with Greenwood and Gaming Entertainment-operated Parx Casino.

Parx’s virtual extension, Parx Online, utilizes a gaming platform provided by GAN, via which NetEnt’s suite of slot and table games will be delivered. The developer’s full portfolio will be implemented on the operator’s online casino gradually, over a period of time.

A multitude of bonus features such as bonus spins are supported with GAN’s free spin widget and other tools of the trade that will be at the company’s disposal.

Parx Casino is Pennsylvania’s largest gaming complex that also has a horse racing venue.

Attractive Market Not to be Missed Out On:

The Swedish iGaming giant submitted their PA license application in September, wishing to join the potentially highly lucrative online gaming market that came to be in this state with the signing of expanded gaming legislation in late 2017.

Their reasoning is quite easy to comprehend: the state of 13 million residents collected a respectable $386 million in revenue during its first year of wide-range gaming.

Comments NetEnt Americas LLC Managing Director, Erik Nyman:

“Parx is a household brand in the gambling community in Pennsylvania. I am very excited that we have secured this important agreement ahead of market opening. I am certain that Parx player’s will enjoy our games and unique features and that our tools will help Parx grow their business within online casino.”

Pivotal Year Gains Momentum

For Parx, the long-anticipated sportsbook launch finally happened in early January, with first the wagers accepted in the lounge area of the casino. A proper sportsbook floor and premises should be constructed in the coming months.

The casino’s SVP iGaming & Sports, Matthew Cullen, says the entire staff is very eager to expand its offerings into the online world, and adds:

“As part of this, we’re excited to be able to offer NetEnt’s outstanding suite of game content as part of our online casino launch in Pennsylvania.”

Online Gambling’s Big Shoes to Fill

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board has publicly reported on sports betting revenue reaching the $2 million mark in December in the midst of a rising number of license demands for this particular branch of gaming.

Another PA casino, Mohegan Sun, is ready to roll out its online betting services. The property has joined forces with famous platform provider, Kindred Group, by signing a five-year agreement, with a provision that creates a possibility of two more five-year terms.

Mohegan’s VP interactive gaming, Aviram Alroy, said that this alignment will allow casino’s online iteration to offer “best in class experience to existing customers as well as new ones.”
