B2B internet gaming software suppliers GAN has announced a multi-year extension to its contract with Paddy Power Betfair, related to the continued provision of platform services in New Jersey’s fast-growing internet gaming market.
First joining forces five years ago for the joint launch of www.BetfairCasino.com, which utilises the GAN internet gaming system and associated services, the collaboration between the two firms has helped establish a “significant and profitable internet casino in New Jersey”.
Kip Levin, CEO of Betfair US, commented: “BetfairCasino.com offers a unique iGaming product experience for customers in New Jersey. The extension of this agreement is a reflection of GAN’s flexible technology system, ‘can-do’ attitude and their overall commitment”.
GAN details that through its internet gaming software system GameStack, it licenses principally land based US casino operators to offer both regulated real-money and/or virtual simulated gaming.
Dermot Smurfit, CEO of GAN, added: “We’re privileged to renew and extend our agreement with Paddy Power Betfair in the United States, one of the largest Internet sports betting and gaming operators in the world today.
“Our respective teams have performed well over an extended period in order to establish BetfairCasino.com as the leading independent Internet casino in New Jersey. We look forward to continued shared success.”
Nevada, Delaware and New Jersey are the only three US states currently able to operate regulated online gaming, with Pennsylvania set to join the party imminently.
With the introduction of The Keystone State, which has a population of a fraction below 13 million, the number of Americans legally able to wager real money on internet casino games is set to more than double, with the number currently sitting at approximately 12.6m.
