Wazdan, a provider of online casino content, is set to make its first foray into New Jersey, which the company describes as “the first step on a very exciting journey.”

This comes after the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement granted it a transactional waiver to launch a number of its online and mobile games in the state.

The supplier can now bring its “best-performing” titles, such as 9 Lions, Larry the Leprechaun, and Sizzling 777 Deluxe, as well as other famous titles including Power of Gods: The Pantheon, Magic Stars 3, and Magic Fruits Deluxe, live across the state.

Wazdan recently announced partnerships with igaming network providers Blox and Gamingtec, Danish sports betting and igaming operator 25syv, and two Crowd Entertainment brands, Princess Casino and CashPot, both of which are based in Europe.

First step in exciting journey

Wazdan’s chief commercial officer, Andrzej Hyla, commented on the company’s new 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.”

In April, revenue at New Jersey’s online casinos and poker rooms increased year over year, but fell short of the previous month’s high.

The Garden State’s digital gaming ecosystem brought in $107.7 million in the last 30 days, up 34.8 percent from $80 million in April 2020 but down from the $113.7 million reported in March. The total gaming revenue for the month was $352.2 million (2020: $82.5 million).
