Pala Interactive, a Californian online gaming business backed by the Pala Band of Mission Indians, has selected GeoComply as its geolocation solution provider for the US market.

GeoComply chief executive Anna Sainsbury described the deal as an exciting partnership that confirms the supplier’s growing stature in the US online gaming market, where operators are required to pinpoint the location of players to ensure compliance with state laws.

“We look forward to working with Pala Interactive across all targeted jurisdictions in the coming months and years,” Sainsbury added.

GeoComply, which is licensed in Nevada and awaiting New Jersey approval, has already secured deals to serve as the geolocation partner of online gaming technology providers including, Bally Technologies, NYX Interactive and payment processor Secure Trading.

Its new partner Pala Interactive is described as a “next generation iGaming business for the regulated US market,” with former boss Jim Ryan serving as its chief executive.

California-based Pala Interactive is yet to announce its strategy to enter the market, though Gaming Intelligence understands that it is working on the development of an online gaming platform.

Commenting on the deal with GeoComply, Ryan said he was “very pleased” to have partnered with the company, which he described as offering “the most comprehensive, reliable and user-friendly solution for compliance grade geolocation on the market.”
