Pariplay‘s North American expansion has entered the most lucrative market for online casino revenue on the continent. On Tuesday, Pariplay announced it has secured a license to offer its games to PA online casino operators.

It isn’t yet certain which apps will be the first to offer Pariplay’s games in Pennsylvania, but there are some likely contenders. Pariplay’s acquisition of this license could help it close new deals, too.

Pariplay ready to make its PA online casino debut

A Tuesday press release confirmed Pariplay’s receipt of an Interactive Gaming Manufacturer License from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board. It’s the fourth license of the type for Pariplay in the United States, following Michigan, New Jersey, and West Virginia.

With that license, Pariplay can close deals with current and presumptive online casino operators in Pennsylvania to add Pariplay games to their menus. The release states that Pariplay’s Fusion platform offers over 13,000 titles from more than 80 distinct creators.

So far, Pariplay has not announced any deals addressing Pennsylvania specifically. It does have one existing partnership that could facilitate its entry into the state, however.

BetMGM Pennsylvania could be first with Pariplay titles

Pariplay partnered with BetMGM last November to make Pariplay games available on BetMGM Casino in Michigan and BetMGM Casino in New Jersey. BetMGM Casino is also available in Pennsylvania, as are BetMGM brands Borgata PA Casino and Stars Casino.

There’s been no official announcement of an expansion of that partnership into Pennsylvania yet. At the same time, it could happen quickly now that Pariplay has the necessary license. Pariplay also has a deal with Golden Nugget Casino but that brand is not yet operating in Pennsylvania. Furthermore, Pariplay closed on a partnership with PlayStar Casino in New Jersey, although that app has yet to go live there.

Essentially now being a “turnkey solution” in Pennsylvania could make Pariplay more attractive to other PA online casino apps like Caesars PA, DraftKings PA, and FanDuel PA. If such discussions are ongoing, they are happening in closed channels. There’s no secret about why Pennsylvania was a priority for Pariplay, though.

Pennsylvania surpassed New Jersey as the market that produces the most online casino revenue earlier this year. From March through June of this year, Pennsylvanians’ online casino play has produced over $543 million in gross revenue. With its new license and a possible expansion of its BetMGM deal, Pariplay now has a seat at that table.
