Mount Airy and Stadium Casino then followed suit and also submitted application to the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.

Parx Casino generated $570m from slot machines and table games in the year ended 30 June, representing an 18% share of Pennsylvania’s $3.2bn gaming market in 2017/18.

Greenwood Gaming & Entertainment, owner of Parx Casino, will launch the site in the state of Pennsylvania.

Parx launched a social casino product in 2015, which will remain fully operational at ParxOnline.com.

The Pennsylvania online gaming market is projected to generate $200m in gross gaming revenue for its first 12 months in operation, with the market expected to launch later this year.

John Dixon, CTO of Greenwood Entertainment & Racing, owner of Parx Casino, said: “GAN has demonstrated its Regulated Gaming Capability in New Jersey and the merits of integrating with a casino management system. Parx Casino will have the opportunity to launch Regulated Gaming in Pennsylvania later this year, subject to the regulatory approval of the PGCB.”

Dermot Smurfit, GAN CEO, said: "Parx Casino and GAN have collaborated well for three years, developing a close working relationship by operating simulated gaming online. Launching regulated real-money internet gaming in Pennsylvania is a logical extension of our existing long-term relationship and we welcome the opportunity to deliver excellence in technology and product, as we have for our clients in New Jersey."
