NetGaming first grabbed the attention of stakeholders when it launched in 2019 and released its first title about a year later. The Malta-based online supplier has offices in London and three other jurisdictions in Europe and Asia.
Before seeking a launchpad in the United States, it operated under licenses from the Malta Gaming Association, United Kingdom Gambling Commission and Curacao. Its products are certified in Belarus and Georgia, while it obtained a license from Greece in the past year.
Plans to enter the US market began late last year when it submitted an application to the Michigan Gaming Control Board. After the recent approval of this supplier license, NetGaming secured its first ever casino license from North America. However, according to the brand’s representatives many more applications are simultaneously being processed.
This goes to show that Michigan is only the first stop in a long line of licenses to roll out in the coming months. In a press release, NetGaming CEO Pallavi Deshmukh expressed his satisfaction at the process and stirred up anticipation towards the immediate launch of its products at Michigan online gambling sites.
“We are thrilled to receive the license. The licensing process in the US is arduous and is a big undertaking. We worked relentlessly to ensure all the i’s were dotted and the t’s were crossed,” Deshmukh said in a statement “For a start-up to receive an iGaming license in the US is no small feat. I am incredibly proud of our team, who are my strength. We can’t wait to go live with our launch partner.”
