The global hosting services provider Internet Vikings has announced the reinforcement of their previous partnership with Swedish online casino operator PlayStar Casino, which will see Internet Vikings host their brand-new Pennsylvania casino platform.
After announcing a similar partnership earlier in the year when PlayStar Casino was preparing a launch in New Jersey, Internet Vikings have now doubled down on their commitment and are ready to partner up with the casino when they launch in Pennsylvania in early 2022.
PlayStar Casino has been one of the most ambitious European casino companies when it comes to US expansion. They have announced a plan to enter all legal markets in the country and started off strong with their plans for New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
“We are very enthusiastic about our growth into the American gaming landscape,” said Adam Noble, chief business development officer at PlayStar. “Even more so, we are glad to proceed together with a trusted partner.
“Sportsbook and iGaming hosting in the US presents a number of challenges and Internet Vikings have proven themselves to be reliable, innovative and incredibly supportive, so we look forward to working with them in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.”
Internet Vikings has been the leading provider of hosting services for iGaming sites in Europe for a number of years and their expansion overseas is the next step in company’s growth. Today, the company services sites on six different continents. In the US, they are present in 16 jurisdictions, as well as Ontario, Canada.
“It is a great pleasure for us to have Playstar Casino as our client,” said Internet Vikings founder Rickard Vikström. “Getting them set up in Pennsylvania is evidence that our collaboration will go from strength to strength.
“Entering two of the largest US iGaming markets is a great achievement and we will support them in every way possible as they continue on this exciting journey.”
How Internet Vikings entered the US market
Internet Vikings have been operating as one of the leading providers of hosting services for iGaming platforms in the world, and their US expansion started in 2021 when they announced their early launch in West Virginia.
Last September, Internet Vikings launched their bespoke iGaming hosting service in Colorado, paving the way for future sports betting and casino sites who will be looking for hosting in the state.
Just one month after Colorado, Internet Vikings entered their partnership with PlayStar Casino, providing hosting for their casino platform in New Jersey and thus entering yet another regulated iGaming market in the US.
At that time, the company expressed its intention to launch in 11 regulated US markets in the foreseeable future, and the expansion of the PlayStar Casino deal into Pennsylvania is certainly the next step in this direction.
In fact, the pace at which Internet Vikings has been expanding into the US is likely faster than what was expected, with the company quickly conquering new territories and becoming a serious contender for the spot of the number one US iGaming hosting provider.
