New Jersey DGE Grants NetEnt A Permanent Licence ( Click to Enlarge )

Thanks to the unstoppable rise of digital technology, the online gambling industry has experienced many positive changes over the years. With many software developers like NetEnt joining the market, today gamblers have access to a growing range of games. But NetEnt has another reason to smile…

The leading software developer was recently granted the Casino Service Industry Enterprise Licence. It is such an achievement because New Jersey’s licence is permanent. In addition, the US also has a complex relationship with software developers and casino operators, with the US Justice Department expressing earlier this year its desire to curb online gambling. This is what makes the move such a privilege for NetEnt.

Why Was It NetEnt’s Big Moment?

Though NetEnt started its operations in New Jersey in 2015, it used the NJDGE’s (New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement’s) transactional waiver to operate. It is through the NetEnt Americas LLC, which is the company’s subsidiary, that they applied for the licence.

As a result, they were granted the transactional waiver in September 2015 that enabled the developer to supply their games online in New Jersey. The exemption was temporary, but the licence recently approved is permanent.

NetEnt’s Reaction

Erik Nyman, NetEnt Americas LLC’s managing director, expressed his joy at the company receiving its first and permanent US online gaming licence. He told of how the software developer has been supporting the regulator since 2015 throughout the entire licensing process.

The software developer has also expressed interest in expanding into other states that regulate online casinos, with this grant marking the next step in NetEnt’s journey of expansion across the US.
