Swedish casino content and technology services provider Evolution Gaming has been awarded a Pennsylvania License paving the way for its US expansion.
In its statement to the press, the company said that they have secured a conditional Interactive Gaming Manufacturer license from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board. It also confirmed that with the license, Evolution gaming is now authorized to deal in live casino content through its licensed online gambling partners in the state.
The development is significant for the company as it has become the first provider of Live Casino solutions to obtain a license in Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania legalized online gambling towards the end of 2017.
Commenting on today’s announcement, James Stern, Chief Business Development Officer – America & Land-Based at Evolution, said that they have seen “phenomenal” demand for Live Casino products in the United States.
He also said that he would be happy to expand further in the evolving US online gambling market and also expressed his desire to serve both online and land-based casinos in Pennsylvania.

Following the agreement, Planetwin365 will now host the complete portfolio of live casino games from Evolution gaming. Planetwin365 is a popular online gambling brand in Italy, with online casino games and also online sports betting. It also operates betting shops in the country.
