NetEnt Casino Games Now Live with Wind Creek in Pennsylvania
Late in July, Wind Creek Bethlehem opened its online casino, Wind Creek Casino, making it the 10th digital gambling venue to go live in the Keystone State.
Under a partnership between NetEnt and Wind Creek, the latter can now offer the Swedish supplier’s popular games to its Pennsylvania gaming customers. The online casino has added a selection of NetEnt’s popular table games as well as a number of its slots, including local top performer Divine Fortune.
The progressive jackpot slot has awarded multiple six-figure prizes to lucky Pennsylvania players since it first became available in the state last year.
It should also be noted that NetEnt’s partnership with Wind Creek and the recent roll-out of its content with the online casino operation has further increased the content provider’s market share in the Keystone State, where it has expanded significantly since first entering it last summer.
NetEnt obtained a conditional license from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board that enabled it to offer its products to locally licensed online casinos in the spring of 2019. The supplier’s games became available when the state’s first online casinos were launched in July last year.
Wind Creek Deal Underlines NetEnt Status as a Go-to Supplier
Commenting on their alliance with Wind Creek, Brian Kraft, NetEnt Vice President Commercial, Americas, said that they consider it a major achievement to “be supporting Wind Creek in its online journey.”
Mr. Kraft went on to say that their deal with Wind Creek “underlines our status as a go-to supplier in Pennsylvania both with established operators and emerging brands.” He added that given the strong performance of their games in the local market, “this partnership will no doubt see Wind Creek make a big impact in the online landscape.”
Wind Creek Hospitality CMO Ken Rohman said that with NetEnt’s portfolio of games they are in a “strong position to quickly gain market share.”
News about NetEnt expanding its presence in Pennsylvania emerge shortly after the Swedish online casino supplier announced that it would soon debut its content into West Virginia’s newly opened iGaming market.
NetEnt has received a temporary license from state gambling regulators and is now gearing up preparations to enter the local online casino space. BetMGM will be the first iGaming operation to go live with NetEnt’s content in West Virginia, it also became known last week.
BetMGM, the sports betting and online gaming brand of ROAR Digital, a joint venture between MGM Resorts International and GVC Holdings, already offers NetEnt games in New Jersey.
West Virginia will be the third state where content from the Swedish provider will be available, joining New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
NetEnt reported a triple-digit increase in gross gaming revenue for the second quarter of the year in New Jersey and Pennsylvania and noted that “thanks to the strong performance of our games locally, the US is now a major revenue driver for NetEnt.”
