Design Works Gaming has vowed to keep its foot on the pedal, as the online casino content developer looks to enhance its US footing further still after disclosing entry into Connecticut.

Following an array of US-focused commercial tie-ups that have been entered into in recent times, DWG has gained receipt of a licence to provide content to regulated online casinos in the state of Connecticut, making it their fourth US license in just as many months.

The online gaming service provider licence, issued by Connecticut’s Department of Consumer Protection, comes on the heels of similar licenses in New Jersey, Michigan and Pennsylvania.

This comes after the group announced that it was entering regulated markets in North America via an agreement with SG Digital last year.

After this initial agreement, the group has gone live in the state of New Jersey with a number of operators, including Golden Nugget Online Gaming and Resorts Casino.

Troy Zurawksi, DWG CEO, commented: “Securing our license in Connecticut in record time and being one of the first independent game developers to do so is just another feat for us. 

“Team DWG has had our foot on the gas pedal since the end of last year with the success of our New Jersey launch and we are not letting up anytime soon. Keep your eye out for even more great DWG content in the US igaming market this year.”

In October 2021, Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont officially authorised the full launch of online sports betting and igaming within the region.
