Wazdan gets green-light to offer real money games in New Jersey

Wazdan is taking its online casino content to the Garden State as the game development company secured approval from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement to roll out a handful of online and mobile game titles in the state of New Jersey.

Wazdan’s Real Money Slot Now in New Jersey

The igaming content developer used Friday’s press release to acknowledge its marketplace entry into the New Jersey online casino marketplace. The company confirmed the receipt of a transactional waiver from New Jersey’s gaming regulator, which will see the launch of a select number of games in the said jurisdiction. 

Wazdan considers its New Jersey market entry as ‘the first step on a very exciting journey,’ with plans to expand its footprints in more US markets in the pipeline.

Slot players in the Garden State will soon gain access to the slot maker’s top-performing titles, including Sizzling 777 Deluxe, Larry the Leprechaun and 9 Lions. Other Wazdan all-time favorites such as Magic Fruits Deluxe, Magic Stars 3, Power of Gods: The Pantheon will also make their debut in the state.  

As Wazdan continues to bolster its presence in the United States, the game development company has scored a series of deals with several key players in the European igaming scene. The group struck partnerships with igaming platform providers, Gamintec and Blox, and Danish sports betting and igaming operator 23syv. Wazdan also lauded its recent venture with Crowd Entertainment, which will pave the way for its content to go live with Casino and Cashpot online casino brands.

New Jersey’s online casinos and poker rooms recorded significant year-on-year growth in April, though the numbers came short of the record revenue generated just one month earlier. 

The Garden State’s digital gaming ecosystem registered revenue of $107.7m during the 30 days, which represents a 34.8 percent increase from the $80m recorded in April 2020 but drops from the record $113.7m generated in March. Total gaming revenue for the month came in at $352.2m (2020: $82.5m).

Executive Insights 

Andrzej Hyla, chief commercial officer at Wazdan, said of the company’s latest approval: 

“New Jersey needs no introduction as a market and we’re thrilled to be able to offer some of our most popular games to operators in the state. With more to come from us in this territory, it’s the first step on a very exciting journey.”
