The news has landed that US betting and gaming giant DraftKings has extended its existing collaboration with gaming developer of Starburst fame Netent to launch the latter’s titles in the states of Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
The agreement between the two corporations follows a successful link-up in the state of New Jersey, where NetEnt slots and casino games have proven to be a huge hit.
As part of the deal, NetEnt will open up its entire games portfolio to residents in the forementioned US states so that players who live within the jurisdictions can enjoy thrilling games such as Street Fighter II, Narcos, Hotline 2, Rage of the Seas and Dark King Forbidden Riches.
In addition to the launch of NetEnt games in the Keystone State and Mountain State respectively, this latest deal extension will also include the option to expand further in to new jurisdictions as and when required.
As many US states continue to legalise online gambling, the country that once frowned upon wagering from a device may now see exponential growth over the next 12 months, with future NetEnt game releases expcted to go live in approved states as part of the collaboration.
NetEnt Vice President Commercial, Americas, Brian Kraft spoke out about the collaboration extension:
“DraftKings’ size and market presence make this launch one of the most significant to date.
We’re proud to expand our relationship with such a well-known operator and look forward to continuing the success that we’ve achieved together so far.
