Approval from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board and West Virginia Lottery allows the affiliate to create commercial agreements with online sports betting, online casino and online poker operators, including revenue-share deals.

The affiliate received similar approval in New Jersey earlier this year, reporting a 52% year-on-year rise in revenue, to €5.2m ($3.5m), and a 76% increase in EBITDA, to €1.75m, for Q1.

Charles Gillespie, CEO of Gambling.com Group, said: “We will seek the necessary licenses and approvals in all US states that decide to properly regulate online gambling with a mobile offering and a competitive landscape."

Regulated sports betting was legalised in both Pennsylvania and West Virginia last year.

Pennsylvania’s gaming revenue increased 2% to $3.3bn for the fiscal year ended 20 June, while revenue of $369,133 was generated from online sports wagering.
