Hacksaw Gaming to commence ‘exciting’ US strategy in West Virginia

Hacksaw Gaming has heaped confidence on an “exciting strategy for the US” in delivering a series of highlights for the group, with the games studio set to compete for a slice of the country’s igaming pie.

The games provider has gained receipt of a maiden certification within the North American nation after West Virginia granted the group a provisional licence.

Following the issuance, CEO Marcus Cordes confidently asserted that this represented “the start of a significant expansion into the US” for the firm.

“This latest expansion comes after our licence approvals in Romania and the Isle of Man earlier in 2022, so we’re finishing the year just as strongly as we started it,” he said.

“Being granted this licence is testimony to the quality of our games portfolio and shows just how robust and engaging our content is.”

This latest point of entry for Hacksaw comes after initial strides in the North American online gaming ecosystem was made in May 2022 after being granted a licence in Ontario.

The group’s Canadian standing was also enhanced last month after the studio entered the Canadian province of Quebec via Loto-Québec.

The supplier is aiming to go live across the US during the first quarter of next year through an alliance with Light & Wonder. Hacksaw’s new licence comes as West Virginia’s licensed igaming operators saw a 60 per cent increase through October year-on-year.

Christine Bordeaux, Hacksaw’s SVP of Compliance North America, added: “We have an exciting strategy for the US and our team is focused on delivering yet more excellent and memorable products to delight that market.”
