Stockholm-listed casino solutions provider NetEnt has been granted a permanent Casino Service Industry Enterprise license by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement.

NetEnt has operated in the regulated New Jersey iGaming market under a transactional waiver issued in September 2015, having applied for licensure earlier that year.

“We are very pleased to obtain our first permanent online gaming license in the US. We have been present in New Jersey since 2015 and have supported the regulator throughout the licensing process,” said Erik Nyman, managing director of NetEnt Americas.

“The license marks yet another step in our US expansion as we hope to enter additional states if and when they regulate online casino.”

Shares in NetEnt AB (STO:NET-B) were trading up 1.32 per cent at SEK38.67 per share in Stockholm Monday morning.
