US gaming developer and supplier, GAN plc, was granted an online gaming license by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (NJDGE) to operate in the New Jersey regulated market. The achievement places the company in a strategic position to obtain licensing in other states if and when online gambling becomes legalized.
The company’s first application was submitted in 2013, and since, they’ve complied with the NJDGE’s investigative procedures digging into all business affairs, its majority shareholders, directors and other high-level employees.
GAN CEO, Dermot Smurfit, said, “We have long maintained that a key benefit of choosing GAN is the guaranteed integrity and strong compliance profile of our current and historic business activities, clean source of investment funds and the unquestioned suitability of our major shareholders, directors and employees to be licensed in New Jersey. Here is the proof of those long-standing statements. GAN has been thoroughly and professionally investigated by the NJDGE and we welcome the grant of our first privileged gaming license in the United States. In the heavily regulated world of Internet gaming, the significance of this gaming license cannot be underestimated and is a major asset for our Company and will deliver our shareholders significant value over time.”
GAN is partnered with some of the most recognized software and game studios in the industry, which include Aristocrat, IGT, NetEnt, SG Games, Konami, Bally Wulff, Genesis Gaming and many more
