US – Hacksaw awarded first licence in the United StatesBy William - 14 November 2022
Hacksaw Gaming has been granted a provisional licence in West Virginia to begin what its CEO Marcus Cordes describes as ‘the start of a significant expansion’ into the US.
This latest licence comes after the company first made strides into North America in May 2022 when it was granted a licence in Ontario and now Hacksaw Gaming aims to go live in the US in Q1 of 2023 via its partnership with Light & Wonder.
Cordes said: “This latest expansion comes after our licence approvals in Romania and the Isle of Man earlier in 2022, so we’re finishing the year just as strongly as we started it.
“Being granted this licence is testimony to the quality of our games portfolio and shows just how robust and engaging our content is.”
Hacksaw Gaming’s new licence comes as West Virginia’s licensed iGaming operators saw a 60 per cent increase in October compared to the same month last year, with a 12 per cent increase on September of this year.
Christine Bordeaux, Hacksaw’s SVP of Compliance North America, added: “We have an exciting strategy for the US and our team is focused on delivering yet more excellent and memorable products to delight that market.”
