The Pennsylvania gambling market is getting another upgrade. The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) approved Strive Gaming for interim authorization as a manufacturer within the state.

Strive Gaming is going to provide PA online casinos with a full-service, omni-channel platform.

Strive Gaming enters Pennsylvania market with impressive platform

Strive Gaming has state-of-the-art software that operators in the Keystone State can use. PGCB Deputy Director of Communications Richard McGarvey confirmed this week to PlayPennsylvania that the board granted interim authorization for Strive Gaming last month.

Under interim authorization, Strive Gaming can operate within the state as if it has a license. It could take up to a full year until the PGCB conducts a background check to award the official license.

Strive isn’t a stranger to the North American market. A few months ago, the company received clearance to operate in Michigan.

Company CEO Max Meltzer said in a press release:

“We are thrilled to receive the Interim Authorization for iGaming and Sports Wagering Manufacturer License in Pennsylvania. This milestone follows our Michigan state license a few months ago and continues to reflect our dedication to regulatory compliance and our ongoing efforts to deliver a best-in-class iGaming and sports betting PAM solution. We look forward to contributing to the vibrant digital landscape of Pennsylvania and providing our award-winning technology in the state.”


How Strive Gaming can impact Pennsylvania gambling

Strive Gaming has a ton of features that are going to improve the Keystone State gambling market.

In addition to iGaming, Strive also offers a sports wagering platform for operators, too. According to the company’s website, it supplies:

  • Online casino and sports betting wagering platform
  • Deep third-party integrations with well-known operators
  • Real-time data to instantaneous action
  • Fully native and quick launch casino and sports apps
  • Full-scoped managed service and regulatory compliance

Strive Gaming’s calling card is speed and automation, which drives increased revenue through improved player retention and lifetime values for operators.

The company already has a relationship with Golden Nugget, managing its sports betting platform. Golden Nugget does not have a sportsbook in Pennsylvania. However, Golden Nugget Pennsylvania is a strong iGaming option within the state.

It’s certainly possible that Strive Gaming will leverage its relationship with Golden Nugget to debut in the Keystone State. Either way, the freshly authorized company is now free to make new partnerships with other Pennsylvania operators.
