Back in December we received the press released we had all been waiting for. In fact, this news had been in the pipeline for years; NetEnt had finally gone live in New Jersey, USA! And today we hear that yet another supplier has begun operating NetEnt slots across the pond in the USA, and it’s one we’re sure you’ve heard of.
WHO ARE POKERSTARS?
PokerStars are a casino many of you will have heard of- they’re undoubtedly one of the most well-know poker sites in the world. But what many people won’t know is that, in recent months, they’ve been developing a whole new ‘casino’ section of their site, to run alongside their current poker and sports betting offerings.
Fans of the site will be pleased to hear that we’re due to add PokerStars to our site within a matter of days. We’ve been keen to sign them up for a while but, as they didn’t offer NetEnt slots up until a few weeks ago, they were a no go for us. Now we’re very excited to have them join us, especially at such an exciting time in their history.
NETENT SLOTS IN NEW JERSEY
So, in an article we wrote in December, we explained that after a long wait, NetEnt slots were finally allowed to go live in New Jersey with casinos Mohegan Sun and Resorts Casinos in both desktop and mobile format. Up until then, American casino players were not able to play NetEnt video slots.
SO WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR US CASINO PLAYERS?
In basic terms, US casino players in New Jersey now have a whole lot more choice. Previously restricted to just the two casinos initially signed up with NetEnt and just a small selection of NetEnt slots, American casino players can now access a wider range of video slots and have the choice of signing up to yet another recognised and trusted casino brand.
WHAT’S NEXT FOR NETENT IN THE US?
NetEnt haven’t released too much information yet on their plans in the US in future, but we suspect it goes without saying that more and more slots will be offered to the US market in time. It comes as no surprise that they first sought to test a few of the most popular titles first before rolling out with the hundreds of video slots they currently offer.
We’ll keep following this story with interest and will keep you posted as we hear more news.
