Pariplay Limited, an iGaming aggregator and content provider, announced Tuesday that it has been awarded a license for Pennsylvania online casinos as part of its efforts to grow its footprint in North America.
Founded in 2010 and a subsidiary of NeoGames S.A., Pariplay is a leading provider of Internet gaming systems as well as integrated third-party games from leading industry companies.
The Interactive Gaming Manufacturer License, awarded by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, is the fourth license secured by Pariplay in the U.S. market, following Michigan, West Virginia and New Jersey. The company is also focused on gaining a license in Connecticut, possibly this year.
Pariplay secured approval to launch in the Canadian province of Ontario in April.
Pariplay Offers Wizard Games Content
The Pennsylvania license enables Pariplay to offer online gambling content from Wizard Games, as well as a wide variety of aggregated third-party games, to players across the Keystone State through its Fusion platform, the company said in a press release.
Pariplay’s Fusion product is the most flexible aggregation platform in the market and features leading titles and localized content from more than 80 vendors, offering more than 13,000 titles.
Company officials see the Pennsylvania license as an important landmark with great potential.
“We continually strive to expand in key markets, and Pennsylvania is one of the major emerging territories in the United States,” Pariplay managing director Adrian Bailey said in the release.
Bailey has more than 15 years of experience in the gaming sector, having held the positions of Vice President Marketing and Managing Director at Neogames & Caesars Interactive Entertainment.
“Receiving our fourth license in the U.S. is an important landmark for us and we’re eager to expand commercially in our newest market,” Bailey said. “It is one that has great potential both for Pariplay and also our future partners.”
“We pride ourselves on working extremely hard to study the regulations and compliance to enter markets swiftly and seamlessly, and Pennsylvania is yet another example of that,” said Lawrence Hanlin, head of compliance at Pariplay. “We’re very happy to receive this license, which will help serve our operators’ partners and their players with a huge range of locally appealing content.”
