Pariplay wins West Virginia iGaming license

Pariplay casino game software supplieriGaming systems provider Pariplay has been awarded an interim iGaming supplier license in the state of West Virginia, allowing them to provide casinos in the state with games and software. The deal represents the second such that the software company has made on the state level, following the agreement set with New Jersey last year.

In addition to its own collection of in-house titles such as their current flagship slots Dragons of the North Deluxe, Kings of the Trident Deluxe, Mystery Fox, Stallion Fortunes and Wolf Riches, the Pariplay, West Virginia gaming operators will also have access to thousands more games from the Pariplay Fusion aggregation platform.

Despite its relatively small size – West Virginia currently ranks as 39th-most populous state in the US – and handful of proper gaming outlets, the market is seen as lucrative: The state was the second to legalize betting on sports in the wake of the Supreme Court’s rulings which overturned the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) in 2018, and the West Virginia Lottery Commission had reported consistent month-on-month revenue increases before the interruption of normal life by Covid-19.  

On announcing the licensure, Pariplay managing director Adrian Bailey said “Being approved by the West Virginia Lottery Commission to offer our high-quality games to players in this market is a very exciting move for Pariplay, as we see much potential not only in this state but in the US market as a whole.”

Pariplay and its parent company, Sweden-based Aspire Global, will prospectively get the opportunity to earn a more permanent licensing agreement in 2022.

Pariplay touted itself as “the No. 1 aggregator and content provider behind innovative products including the Fusion aggregation platform and the Ignite Studio development program.” The company was founded in 2010 and today has offices in Bulgaria, Gibraltar, India, Israel and Sweden, with headquarters in Malta.
