About the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board:

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board is tasked to oversee all aspects of the state’s casino industry, including sports wagering offered currently at eight locations. The oversight also includes other new gaming initiatives, expected to be launched in the coming months, which were created through Act 42 of 2017, an amendment to the Race Horse Development and Gaming Act.

The Commonwealth’s casino industry currently consists of 10 stand-alone and racetrack casinos in operation, along with the two smaller resort casinos.  These facilities collectively employ over 16,000 people and annually generate approximately $1.4 billion in tax revenue from slot machine and table games play. The largest portion of that money is used for property tax reduction to Pennsylvania homeowners.

Additional information about both the PGCB’s gaming regulatory efforts and Pennsylvania’s gaming industry can be found at gamingcontrolboard.pa.gov. You can also follow the agency on Twitter by choosing @PAGamingControl.

pragmatic-interwetten Pragmatic Play And Interwetten Pen Landmark Live Casino DealReading Time: 1 minute

 

Pragmatic Play, one of the leading software providers for Slots, Live Casino and Bingo, has announced a landmark deal with European operator Interwetten to integrate their Live Casino offering.

Interwetten customers will have access to Pragmatic Play’s Live Casino games, all of which will be broadcast using the latest technology from a state-of-the-art, newly constructed studio.

The operator’s agreement to roll out Pragmatic Play’s Live Casino portfolio is among the first to be announced, after its studio was granted an operational licence by the Romanian regulator earlier in 2019.

Appealing to a high-level, demanding clientele, Pragmatic Play’s Live Casino games are designed to recreate the thrill of the land-based atmosphere with all the advantages of online play: fast and easy placing bets, detailed game statistics, complete bet history, guiding sounds effects and animations.

Melissa Summerfield, Chief Commercial Officer at Pragmatic Play, said: “We are thrilled to be taking our offering live with such a highly-regarded operator as Interwetten.

“This marks a great milestone for Pragmatic Play as we consolidate our position as leading multi-product supplier, and our brand new Live Casino studio will host high-quality content for Interwetten customers.”

Mario Bilic, Head of Casino at Interwetten, said: “Pragmatic Play has forged a sterling reputation in the iGaming industry and we are delighted to be one of the first operators to offer its high-quality live casino games.

“Their portfolio is highly regarded in the market and we have every confidence Pragmatic’s Live Casino games will be a big hit with our players.”

Pragmatic Play has signed a series of significant commercial agreements over the past 12 months in regulated markets, expanding its reach with operators including PokerStars, Kindred and Casumo.

The provider’s entire portfolio of Slots, Live Casino, Bingo and other games are all available via a single API.
