Pennsylvania is one of six states with real money online casino options, along with New Jersey, West Virginia, Delaware, Connecticut and Michigan. Those states also offer online poker along with Nevada.
Interactive gaming launched in Pennsylvania in July 2019, just a month after online sports betting. In the 2021-22 fiscal year alone (from July to February), the Keystone State has collected more than $540 million from interactive slots and another $220 million form banking tables, leading to more than $200 million total in tax revenue. The state is expected to report March revenue next week at the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board website.
‘’This is a significant milestone in our strategy, having enjoyed significant success with our product in a host of markets, including Sweden, UK, and Denmark,” Stevendahl said of the Pennsylvania agreement. ‘We are now aiming for something similar in the U.S., as we move towards our goal of becoming the world’s leading casino operator.”
Established in 2011, Videoslots developed concepts including Wheel of Jackpots, Battle of Slots and Encore, and currently holds licenses in Malta, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Denmark, Italy and Spain, according to information attached to company officials’ LinkedIn accounts.
