Swedish online casino software developer NetEnt has announced its latest deal on American soil. After introducing its games to New Jersey’s online casino market through last year’s deal with Caesars, it has now signed with PokerStars, the largest poker operator of the world. According to an announcement made through the developer’s website, it has reached a deal with Amaya Gaming, the Canadian owner of the PokerStars brand, to add desktop and mobile games to its poker lobby in New Jersey.

PokerStars has first announced its intention to add random number generator (RNG) online casino games to its poker lobby in 2014, rolling them out first in the Spanish variant of their service. It was not the intention of Rational Group at first, but all changed when Amaya took over the business. Amaya’s intentions were apparently to turn PokerStars into a global and complete gambling brand, which it has become today. In time, it has added RNG and live dealer casino games to its poker lobby, launched a sports betting operation under the Stars brand, and is preparing to launch its daily fantasy sports branch, StarsDraft, as soon as the legal status of the service is clarified in the US.
The service has returned to the United States – namely to New Jersey – after a hiatus of about a decade. PokerStars was finally re-launched in the US on the 21st of March, with a license to provide online casino and online poker services to the state’s residents. “We could not be more proud to bring PokerStars to New Jersey,” David Baazov, Chairman and CEO of Amaya Gaming said with the occasion of the launch. “Working with our partner, Resorts Casino Hotel, we look forward to providing the most exciting, innovative and secure gaming experience to New Jersey.”
Swedish developer NetEnt was perhaps the best choice for an online casino partner for Amaya. Aside from it being one of the leading developers in Europe, NetEnt is highly appreciated for its high quality games and the experience it offers its players. Its collection of over 100 video slot machines, table games and card games is used by thousands of online casinos already, and it has received numerous awards for its technology and design.
“We are really thrilled to be live with a selection of our award-winning desktop and mobile games through PokerStars in New Jersey,” Björn Krantz, Managing Director of NetEnt Americas LLC said. “I am confident that our portfolio offering will support their strategy to build sustainable long-term digital casino growth in New Jersey.”
