Issued by New Jersey’s Division of Gaming Enforcement, the licence permits Hacksaw to supply content in the Garden State. Approved operators in New Jersey can now partner with Hacksaw and begin offering its games to players.
Hacksaw said it intends to launch in New Jersey before the end of the calendar year. It added that it will work with partner Light & Wonder to support its content roll-out in the state.
“Hacksaw is unstoppable in its ventures,” Hacksaw CEO Marcus Cordes said. “We are ecstatic to see the rate at which we are broadening our horizons and the headway we are making in getting the recognition our content deserves.
“There is no doubt that Hacksaw will thrive in the US.”
New Jersey approval follows West Virginia licence
Provisional approval in New Jersey comes almost exactly a year since Hacksaw secured its first US licence. The provider was issued a provisional licence in the state of West Virginia in November last year.
At the time, Hacksaw said that it intended to pursue further approvals in the US as part of its wider expansion strategy.
Hacksaw first moved into North America earlier in 2022, securing a licence in the Canadian province of Ontario in May.
Further afield, Hacksaw has also recently picked up a licence in the Isle of Man. The latest approval in New Jersey means that the provider now has a presence in almost 20 markets around the world.
