PointsBet launches igaming platform in New Jersey

Online gaming operator PointsBet has launched its igaming platform in the state of New Jersey, the second jurisdiction for the online casino product following its inaugural igaming operations launch in Michigan in May.

Unveiling its online casino, PointsBet adds to its wagering product suite in the Garden State market, which also includes a fixed-odds sportsbook as well as its “PointsBetting” platform.

Group CEO and Managing Director Sam Swanell commented: “We are thrilled to be able to expand our igaming presence in the United States and bring our proprietary online casino product to the robust New Jersey market.

“The continued growth of our igaming presence further advances our ability to acquire and retain premium clients, complementing our existing sports wagering products.”

Manjit Gombra Singh, President of Product and Technology, added: “I am proud of our igaming team for a successful expansion into New Jersey following what has been a tremendous introduction of our proprietary online casino product in Michigan.

“We are excited for what the future holds and welcome the opportunity to continuously improve and expand the online casino presence at PointsBet.”

The company first launched its sports betting product in the United States in New Jersey in January 2019. Today, it also operates its sports betting platform in Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, and Michigan.

It aims to unveil its sports wagering and online casino product in Arizona, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and West Virginia, via additional market access agreements subject to enabling legislation and/or regulatory approvals.
