- GAN has welcomed yesterday's final approval by the Pennsylvanian House of Representatives of HB 271 which includes provisions for the legalisation of full real money internet casino gaming in the state.

The Bill will now be presented to the governor of Pennsylvania in the next few days to be signed into law.

GAN said that with a population of 12.8 million, the state of Pennsylvania doubled the number of Americans who would be permitted to play internet casino games.

Chief executive Dermot Smurfit said: 'Yesterday we witnessed the House and the Senate in Pennsylvania passing real money internet gaming legislation.

'Pennsylvania is now America's fourth state to regulate Internet gaming and may jumpstart the regulatory cycle for internet gaming in the US.

'GAN is the only fully licensed B2B-only platform vendor in neighbouring New Jersey and one of the very few B2B-only technology vendors with the requisite technical expertise and "day one" New Jersey experience to credibly serve Pennsylvania's land-based casinos.'
