TAMPA, Fla. – On Thursday, the West Virginia Lottery and the Pennsylvania Control Board approved KAX Media America, the U.S. Subsidiary of Gambling.com Group Plc, to operate in their respective states.
In a press release issued by Gambling.com Group, the company announced that the approvals will allow them to execute commercial agreements with online casino, poker, and sports betting operators within each state.
Similar to current operations in New Jersey, Gambling.com can now enter into commercial agreements that include revenue share agreements with state-licensed gaming operators.
“We will seek the necessary licenses and approvals in all U.S. state that decide to properly regulate online gambling with a mobile offering and a competitive landscape,” said Charles Gillespie, chief executive officer of Gambling.com Group Plc.
West Virginia and Pennsylvania both legalized online and land-based sports wagering in 2018. Pennsylvania now has three active state-wide online sportsbooks. The sole online sports betting app in West Virginia had to suspend operation earlier this year but is looking to return this fall.
Iowa unveiled several sports betting apps this month and Indiana is also looking to launch their online legal sports betting apps at some point during the 2019 NFL season.
Several other states such as Tennessee have passed legislation that authorizes online sports wagering and are awaiting a definitive launch date. Other states such as Ohio are still considering legislation and could pass a bill later this year.
“As the American market grows, it’s critical to have resources like Gambling.com and Bookie.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.,” said Gillespie.
