Igaming provider Hacksaw Gaming is set to launch its games in the US for the first time next year, after receiving a provisional licence for the state of West Virginia.
In what Hacksaw’s CEO, Marcus Cordes, stated is “the start of a significant expansion in the US”, the firm has set sights on going live in the Mountain State in Q1 of 2023 through its partnership with Light & Wonder.
Cordes continued: “This latest expansion comes after our licence approvals in Romania and the Isle of Man earlier in 2022, so we’re finishing the year just as strongly as we started it.
“Being granted this licence is testimony to the quality of our games portfolio and shows just how robust and engaging our content is.”
Adding to its 18 regulated market positions, Hacksaw will supply its igaming offering made up of slots, instant win games and scratch cards to West Virginia-based players.
This licence comes as the state’s licenced igaming operators saw a year-over-year increase of 60 per cent in October, with a 12 per cent increase in September of this year.
Christine Bordeaux, Hacksaw’s SVP of Compliance North America, added: “We have an exciting strategy for the US and our team is focused on delivering yet more excellent and memorable products to delight that market.”
