The U.S subsidiary of Gambling.com Group Plc (“Gambling.com Group” or the “Group”), KAX Media America Inc, has completed the necessary application process and have received the green light which will allow them to provide services to licensed gaming operators in Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
The approvals allow the Group to execute commercial agreements with online sports betting, online casino and online poker operators in Pennsylvania and West Virginia. The states are among the first movers following New Jersey, to enable legal and regulated sports betting since the invalidation of the Professional Amateur and Professional Sports Protection Act (PASPA) in May of 2018.
In both Pennsylvania and West Virginia, the Group can now strike commercial agreements which include revenue share agreements with licensed gaming operators.
Although active in New Jersey since early 2017, the Group have announced earlier this year that it had indeed secured approval to create revenue sharing arrangements in New Jersey.
Charles Gillespie, Chief Executive of Gambling.com Group Plc, said: “We will seek the necessary licenses and approvals in all U.S. states that decide to properly regulate online gambling with a mobile offering and a competitive landscape.
“As the American market grows, it’s critical to have resources like Gambling.com and Bookies.com in the conversation to steer consumers toward the safe and regulated gaming environment. With a massive population of die-hard sports fans, Pennsylvania will surely become one of the largest sports betting markets in the U.S.”
As the expansion continues for Gambling.com, it seems like they are on the right path after the re-election of Mark Blandford, who was re-appointed as chairman of the board at the affiliate marketing giant’s annual general meeting (AGM) back in June.
