Pennsylvania Joins Other iGaming States, Gives License to Play’n GO
Fact Checked by Pat McLoone

Bettors in two states on the East Coast will be getting another option for their iGaming wants and needs.

Play’n GO, a business-to-business (B2B) leading online slots games provider, announced it has received iGaming licenses to operate in two states: Pennsylvania and Delaware.

These two new licenses are the fifth and sixth obtained by the Swedish company to operate in the United States, following Connecticut, Michigan, New Jersey, and West Virginia.

Pennsylvania online casinos, and those of the other five states, are the only ones in the United States.

“Play’n GO content is the most conducive to player retention across the industry. With player acquisition costs sky high in the U.S., we’re pleased to be able to offer operators in Pennsylvania access to our content, which will keep players coming back for more,” said Magnus Olsson, chief commercial officer for Play’n GO, in a news release.

“We are determined to be the number one casino gaming supplier in every regulated market in the world and given that we are thriving in more than 25 jurisdictions around the world where we have a license, we fully expect a similar success story in Pennsylvania in the coming years.”

The move should be a boost to PA online slots. Play’n GO is expected to release more than 50 online slot titles in 2024 alone and is active in more than 25 regulated jurisdictions worldwide, including Ontario (Canada).
