Wazdan awarded iGaming license in West Virginia

The casino games developer Wazdan has been awarded a Lottery iGaming Interim Supplier License in West Virginia.

This will allow the casino games developer to provide its products to operators in the state.

Wazdan receives West Virginia license

Last week, the casino game supplier Wazdan received its Lottery i-Gaming Interim Supplier Licence in West Virginia. 

This marks the second state where the company has received approval to offer its products and follows Wazdan’s debut in the state of New Jersey earlier this year.

With approval in the Mountain State, Wazdan will be able to offer a variety of its games to players in West Virginia including titles such as Sizzling 777 Deluxe, Lucky Reels, Space Spins, Power of Gods: The Pantheon, and Magic Stars 3.

Michal Imiolek, Chief Executive Officer at Wazdan, said: “The US market continues to hit incredible heights and it’s a market we’ve already enjoyed some success in. Gaining our West Virginia license is an important milestone for us, and we’re extremely eager to see what we can accomplish in the state.

“With so much more on the horizon for us in North America, it is a hugely exciting time for Wazdan, and we look forward to achieving even more in the US.”

A bit about Wazdan

Wazdan is an online casino game developer and supplier that offers several popular titles across multiple countries.

Back in May, Wazdan secured a transactional waiver to launch in the state of New Jersey, and more recently the company has been approved as a supplier in Greece and Belarus.

Wazdan has also applied for licenses in both the state of Michigan and Pennsylvania.

The company also holds licenses in Great Britain, Malta, and Romania as well as certification in other markets including Denmark, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, and Colombia.

Online gambling in West Virginia

Following the fall of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) in 2018, the Mountain State moved quickly to launch online sports betting and casino gaming.

The Mountain State launched its first legal land-based sportsbooks on 30 August 2018. This was followed by the launch of BetLucky.com, the state’s first online sportsbook, on 27 December 2018. However, the BetLucky platform was shut down prior to the 2019 March Madness tournament.

In late August of 2019, FanDuel and DraftKings both launched their online sportsbooks in West Virginia, reviving the state’s online betting market.

At the time of writing, West Virginia is home to several online sports betting brands which include DraftKings, FanDuel, BetMGM, Betly, Caesars, and PointsBet. Earlier this month, the online operator WynnBet secured market access into the state via a deal with Delaware North.

In October, the Golden Nugget brand also launched in the state of West Virginia.

West Virginia also permits online casino gambling and so far five brands have launched which include the likes of BetMGM, BetRivers, Caesars, DraftKings, and FanDuel.
