Hacksaw Gaming expands to New Jersey through DraftKings deal
Leading online casino games provider Hacksaw Gaming has just received temporary approval from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement to license its games to New Jersey online casinos. After receiving this license, Hacksaw Gaming announced a new partnership with DraftKings Casino in New Jersey.
New Jersey is just the second state to accept Hacksaw Gaming. The company first entered the US online casino market in West Virginia when it partnered with BetRivers Casino in the Mountain State.
According to Hacksaw Gaming, they plan to go live in New Jersey before the end of 2023.
Hacksaw Gaming is one of the fastest-growing online casino games software providers in the world. if you have not heard of them, you probably will soon, especially if you are in New Jersey.
Hacksaw Gaming’s New Jersey license and partnership with DraftKings Casino means world-class games like Wanted Dead or a Wild, Hacksaw’s most famous online slot, and Hand of Anubis will soon be available in New Jersey.
New Jersey casino players will also be able to play other online slots from Hacksaw Gaming, such as Immortal Desire, Chaos Crew, The Bowery Boys, and Stack ’em.
Most Hacksaw Gaming slots are high volatility slots, so they will give you the opportunity to win big jackpots. Additionally, these slots games have an average return-to-player percentage of over 96%, meaning they are very fair games.
In addition to slots, Hacksaw also has dozens of Instant Win and Scratchcard games. These games will also likely be added to the DraftKings Casino New Jersey library soon too.
Hacksaw Gaming’s New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement license gives them the right to partner with any one of many legal online casinos in New Jersey currently operating in the Garden State. However, the actual process of doing that is not as simple as it sounds.
Hacksaw has agreed to distribute its online casino games in New Jersey via a partnership with Light & Wonder, another igaming content company. Hacksaw Gaming also chose to use Light & Wonder’s distribution network in West Virginia, which was the first time Hacksaw casino games were legally offered in the US.
Beyond that one layer of partnerships, Hacksaw needs to partner with individual New Jersey online casinos. Right now, the only online casino in New Jersey Hacksaw is partnered with is DraftKings Casino. Given the company’s strong growth in the US over the past year, we would not be surprised if Hacksaw announces more New Jersey online casino partners soon.
Hacksaw Gaming is a well-known name in many European and Latin American gaming jurisdictions, but it is not a huge name in the US yet. The company was founded in 2017. It is based in Malta. Hacksaw established itself in North America in 2022 via the Canadian online casino market. Hacksaw is partnered with several online casinos in Ontario.
The company now has its eyes set on the US online casino market. Hacksaw games went live in West Virginia in August 2023. It should have its games available in New Jersey before the end of the year. Marcus Cordes, CEO of Hacksaw Gaming, thinks these two states are just the beginning.
“Hacksaw is unstoppable in its ventures. We are ecstatic to see the rate at which we are broadening our horizons, and the headway we are making in getting the recognition our content deserves. There is no doubt that Hacksaw will thrive in the US,” said Cordes.
