PlayStar Casino has unveiled a collaboration with Maxima Compliance to assist in its ongoing preparations ahead of entering the New Jersey market later this year.

This partnership will see the latter provide an in-house service to ensure that PlayStar Casino meets and exceeds its regulatory, compliance and responsible gambling needs.

“We are absolutely thrilled to support PlayStar Casino’s entry into New Jersey, which comes at an exciting time for us as we open our first office in the US, in that state,” noted Antonio Zanghi, CEO at Maxima Compliance

“The Maxima team have supported several clients in multiple US markets in different capacities and we’re very pleased to announce this partnership with PlayStar Casino and establishment of Maxima Compliance in the local market to support it.”

Under the terms of the partnership, Maxima Compliance will provide dedicated resources to PlayStar Casino via in-house engagement, assisting the igaming brand through preparation, as well as pre and post launch compliance needs. This will allow the online casino to focus on building its value proposition to its players.

Adam Noble, executive vice president at PlayStar Casino, said: “Our value proposition is centred on the player experience, therefore it is critical to establish that experience on a solid foundation of meeting and exceeding our obligations with regard to compliance, KYC, AML and responsible gambling as a baseline. 

“Our partnership with Maxima, will ensure this foundation is in place and maintained, and that we’re proving the most secure, safe and responsible gaming experience to our players

“We have a lot of plates spinning as the momentum of our US launch builds and we’re very pleased to be partnering with the Maxima team to continue this momentum.”

PlayStar Casino, which last month announced a multi-year agreement with Ocean Casino Resort, plans to launch in the second half of the year to players in the Garden State, subject to securing the necessary licences and approvals from the jurisdiction’s Division of Gaming Enforcement.
