Online gaming solutions provider NetEnt has signed a license agreement with global interactive entertainment and technology company Amaya, the owner of the world’s most renowned poker brand, PokerStars.
The agreement will see NetEnt supply desktop and mobile games to the PokerStars brand in New Jersey, USA. Amaya is an existing customer of NetEnt in Europe.
NetEnt has signed yet another important customer agreement for the regulated online casino market in New Jersey. The company will be applying for a transactional waiver from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement to launch operations with Amaya’s online poker brand, PokerStars, while its application for a full license is still under review. PokerStars recently announced that PokerStarsNJ.com will be open to the New Jersey public for real money action from March 21.
NetEnt has previously announced partnerships in New Jersey with Borgata/bwin.party, Golden Nugget, Resorts Casino, Tropicana/Gamesys and Caesars Interactive Entertainment.
Björn Krantz, Managing Director of NetEnt Americas LLC said: “I am very pleased that we have been able to extend our successful partnership with Amaya’s extremely popular gaming brand PokerStars to also include the regulated online casino market in New Jersey.”
He continued: “PokerStars is one of the biggest online gaming power houses in the world, and the agreement is yet more proof of the trust and confidence that exists in NetEnt’s operational and portfolio capabilities. I am confident that PokerStars’ US player community will enjoy the enhanced player experience offered through our game portfolio.”
Sam Hobcraft, Director of Casino at Amaya: “We’re pleased to extend our successful global partnership with NetEnt to the New Jersey market. Integrating NetEnt’s top tier games will be an important part of developing into one of the leaders in online casino in New Jersey.”
