White Hat Gaming has entered into an exclusive iGaming PAM deal in the US as the company charts its 2023 expansion into Online Casino and other iGaming products.
Jackpocket, backed by investors such as Mark Cuban, Kevin Hart, and Manny Machado, will gain access to White Hat’s fully managed battle-tested PAM solution including its proprietary cashier and the award-winning travelling wallet, built end-to-end by the platform provider to deliver unparalleled agility and flexibility in regulated US markets.
“As we continue to innovate and bring our Jackpocket users new gaming experiences beyond Lottery, we set out to identify a platform partner that could accelerate our 2023 Online Casino launch in New Jersey. Specifically, one that would enable our teams to deliver an exceptional product experience that our users have grown to expect from us,” said Tony Vartanian, chief growth & revenue officer at Jackpocket.
“We’re excited to partner with White Hat to deliver on this mission because of the team’s long-term vision, capabilities and approach to iGaming in the US market.”
The Jackpocket deal represents another key landmark for White Hat in the USA and is the latest in a series of high-profile moves that has seen the provider expand rapidly into new North American markets. This new partnership will commence with Jackpocket’s online casino product launch in New Jersey, where Jackpocket has secured market access through Caesars Interactive Entertainment New Jersey, LLC. Jackpocket plans to launch this new vertical later this year as the company continues the rapid geographic expansion of its lottery courier app, now live in 15 states.
The White Hat platform solution has received industry recognition. At the SBC North America Awards, White Hat Gaming beat a distinguished shortlist to take home the coveted awards for both Innovation of the Year, for its travelling wallet, and Platform of the Year.
Phil Gelvan, CEO, White Hat Gaming, added: “We are thrilled to partner with such a well-recognised and high growth company and we can’t wait to launch Jackpocket’s iGaming product and bring its amazing brand to even more players.
“The agreement is another major development in the White Hat story and once again highlights the huge potential for iGaming in regulated states.”
