In a recent development, Red Rake Gaming, a rapidly growing name in the US online gambling scene, has successfully obtained a license to introduce its online casino games in Pennsylvania. This announcement was made official through a press release from the company.
The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board has given the green light to Red Rake Gaming, enabling them to provide “player-centric content” within the state. This move signifies Red Rake’s debut in the US market, with several other states nearing the final stages of approval.
A Significant Leap for Red Rake Gaming
The venture into Pennsylvania’s online casinos is a monumental stride for Red Rake Gaming. The company has already made its mark in various states through its social casino services, being a part of some of the most prominent social casinos in the country.
Red Rake Gaming has been gearing up for its US market entry for some time. As a result, they have developed a range of engaging games tailored for local operators. Once they establish their presence in Pennsylvania, they plan to roll out their top-tier games, such as the globally acclaimed Super Series games and Million Mays to Win.
Nick Barr, the Managing Director (Malta) for Red Rake Gaming, expressed his enthusiasm in the press release, stating, “The approval for operations in PA has been a significant achievement for us. We’ve witnessed a soaring demand from operators across the state for our content. It’s exciting to finally offer our social games to players in Pennsylvania for real money. We have high hopes for our growth in the US.”
Apart from the US, Red Rake Gaming also operates in Europe, holding licenses from the UK Gaming Commission and the Malta Gaming Authority. They have a presence in over 20 regulated markets, with recent expansions in Bulgaria, Switzerland, and Lithuania.
Pennsylvania: A Hub for Online Casinos
Ever since Governor Tom Wolf endorsed HB 271, legalizing online gambling, Pennsylvania has become a hotspot for gaming operators and suppliers. According to the PGCB, online casino operators raked in a revenue of $157.1 million in July of this year. This figure, although slightly lower than previous months, still outperformed New Jersey’s $155.2 million.
The revenue for July also marked a 27% yearly growth compared to the previous year. With the launch of the Golden Nugget Casino in August, the state now boasts 21 apps, presenting numerous collaboration opportunities for Red Rake Gaming and other game developers.
