EveryMatrix, a leading B2B iGaming supplier is thrilled to announce that it has obtained Completed Application status issued by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE).

In order to operate successfully in the U.S., EveryMatrix will also require customer integration approval as part of the transactional waiver process so as to receive the green light to ‘Go Live”.

Receiving Completed Application status from the DGE has resulted in EveryMatrix providing all the application information required on the company and its leading officials in line with New Jersey’s law and iGaming standards.

Since 2014, when the Garden State’s gaming regulation came into effect, the industry has grown to a massive $6 Billion in 2020.

Erik Nyman, the President Americas at EveryMatrix, commented on obtaining the status by saying that he is very pleased that DGE has accepted as complete the application filings of the EveryMatrix Group of companies. He added that this is certainly an important milestone for them and puts them on the verge of making their world-class platform and services available to licensed operators in the U.S. market.

He went on to say that since New Jersey regulated online gaming in 2014, their framework has played an important role for other states in their process to regulate and implement online gaming.

Nyman also said that they are very excited to soon be live in New Jersey while they are engaging several license processes across the U.S.

To date, EveryMatrix is on the fast track of securing a complete operating license in New Jersey and is endeavoring to obtain licenses in a number of other U.S. states.
