Play’n GO content in New Jersey

The world’s leading gaming entertainment supplier, Play’n GO, has now launched in the Garden State. The Casino Service Industry Enterprise rewarded the studio with the right to supply its premium content portfolio to Garden State operators. Initially launching with PokerStars, New Jersey players can now enjoy world-leading Play’n GO classics, like Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead, Reactoonz 2, Rise of Olympus, and many more.


Magnus Olsson, Chief Commercial Officer for Play’n GO, shared: “We’ve talked about our plans to bring world-class entertainment to regulated markets across North America, and launching in New Jersey soon after landing our license in Michigan underlines this commitment.

“It’s exciting to jump into the action in New Jersey. A state that is long synonymous with gaming via Atlantic City. And now is delivering fantastic experiences to players safely and responsibly. “We have no plans of stopping here. Our goal is for Play’n GO to become the preferred partner of operators in regulated states across North America. New Jersey is an important step, but we’re just starting.”

Play’n GO has further established its position as the world’s leading supplier of casino entertainment in regulated markets after launching its content portfolio in New Jersey.

Play’n GO’s entered the US as it received its first Provisional Internet Gaming Supplier License in Michigan earlier this month. CEO Johan Törnqvist described it as a “landmark moment” for the company.

Americans betting on the new NFL season


On behalf of the AGA, Morning Consult conducted an online survey. It happened between August 25-27, 2022, and a national sample of 2,210 American adults took part.

Data shows 3% increase in betting year-on-year as RG tool awareness levels reach 92%. 92% of American bettors are aware of responsible gambling tools.

More than 46M Americans are planning to bet on the upcoming  NFL season, according to the latest data from the American Gaming Association (AGA).

To explain in detail, 23% of survey participants said they would bet online this season, up 18%, while six million will place a bet at an in-person sportsbook, a figure up 2% from 2021. Just 13% of NFL bettors say they will use a bookie, down two points from last year (15%) and five points from 2020 (18%).

Bookie usage is 50% higher in states without legalized sports betting. At present, more than half of American adults can place a wager in their home state.

AGA president and CEO Bill Miller shared, “The sustained interest in NFL wagering reflects the growth and continued maturation of legal sports betting across the country,” Miller said. “Consumers clearly want legal sports betting options and understand the regulated industry’s foundational commitments to responsibility,” he added.

“Responsibility is an underpinning of regulated US sports betting and a clear competitive advantage as we continue to build a sustainable marketplace,” Miller added.
