GAN Receives New Jersey CSIE License Award

Business News

GAN plc, an award-winning developer and supplier of enterprise-level B2B Internet gaming software, services and online gaming content in the United States, today announces the grant of its first privileged gaming license in the US issued to GAN by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (“NJDGE”). This establishes the suitability of GAN, its major shareholders, directors and key employees to conduct regulated Internet gaming business in New Jersey.  In parallel, this important milestone strongly positions GAN to obtain licenses in other US States which may elect to regulate real money Internet gaming in the future.

GAN submitted an initial license application in 2013 and has supported the NJDGE in undertaking customary and necessary investigations into GAN’s current and historic business activities, major shareholders, directors and key employees.
