Game Account Network has launched real money internet gambling in Pennsylvania alongside Cordish Gaming Group, almost three months after lauding the firm as a “major new client”.

The collaboration has seen the debut of the new ‘PlayLive!’ branded internet gambling business in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for Cordish Gaming Group, the gaming division of The Cordish Companies.

GAN has successfully deployed the operation in just 72 days following the execution of a definitive agreement, with the entity also leveraging the ‘Live! Rewards’ customer rewards program.

This enables residents of The Keystone State to enroll in advance, online, for their Live! Rewards players card and subsequently engage with a full range of gambling content including slots, table games and non-traditional online gambling titles. 

Live! is an existing client of GAN’s simulated gaming, which launched online in 2015 as an amenity complementing the Live! Casino & Hotel at Arundel Mills in Hanover, Maryland.

This latest partnership becomes the group’s third client of real money internet gambling enterprise software in Pennsylvania.

Dermot Smurfit, CEO of GAN, stated: “We are pleased to have launched ‘PlayLive!’ on behalf of Cordish, one of the nation’s leading casino and entertainment companies and an existing GAN client, and look forward to continuing to support the growth of their business by providing a seamless and entertaining online experience for their users.”

This launch comes ahead of two new Live!-branded gaming facilities in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, expected to open in late 2020 and early 2021, respectively.

The new Live! Casino & Hotel, located in the Stadium Entertainment District in the City of Philadelphia, will be a gaming and entertainment destination featuring 2,200 slot machines and more than 150 live action table games. 

The second new Live! Casino, located in Westmoreland County, near Pittsburgh, will feature more than 100,000 square-feet of gaming, dining and entertainment space, including 750 slots and approximately 30 live action table games.
