It aims to go live in the state through its partnership with Light & Wonder in Q1 2023, with Marcus Cordes saying he felt the move was “the start of a significant expansion into the US.”

Cordes further 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.”

Meanwhile, 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.”

In May 2022, Hacksaw began its expansion into the North American market when it was granted a licence to operate in Ontario.

West Virginia’s licensed operators saw a 60% jump over 2021 in October, showing how popular gambling is becoming in the US state.

Furthermore, Hacksaw recently announced that it had entered into the Québec market, signing a partnership agreement with Loto-Québec.

The Hacksaw brand is responsible for operating and developing the region’s district-run lottery and online casino.

Hacksaw Gaming CCO Gabrielle Star said of the deal: “It’s been a pleasure for the whole team working with Loto-Québec, who ensured a seamless launch via our partners Light & Wonder OGS platform."
