The supplier now offers titles in three US states.

Hacksaw Gaming has received a provisional internet gaming supplier license in the state of Michigan. This approval follows the green light to operate in two other US states, New Jersey and West Virginia.

Hacksaw entered the commercial market in New Jersey last fall and made its debut in West Virginia during the summer of 2023.

Company CEO Marcus Cordes noted that gaining a provisional license in Michigan can open “many doors for Hacksaw.”

He commented, “Another amazing achievement that wouldn’t have been possible without our outstanding team.

“We’re looking directly at the face of even further growth in the US and we’re ready to show Michigan just what Hacksaw Gaming games can do.”

Players in Michigan will have access to several Flagship Hacksaw Gaming online slot titles that include Wanted Dead or a Wild, Gladiator Legends and Hand of Anubis.

Hacksaw currently serves several jurisdictions around the world, including MGA, UKGC, Romania, Greece, Netherlands, Latvia, Ontario, Italy and Sweden.

The company has significantly broadened its US reach within the past 12 months with its latest licensing approval and continues to focus on expanded its global footprint.

Hacksaw Gaming has already extended its North American footprint. Hacksaw recently teamed up with High Flyer Casino to offer exclusive Hacksaw Gaming slots to players in the Canadian province of Ontario.

In other state news, the Michigan Gaming Control Board (MGCB) recently sent three companies cease-and-desist letters at the conclusion of investigations into possible illegal gambling practices. The regulator’s findings revealed that three companies – two in the US and one international – were providing iGaming in the state without licenses.

The letters were sent to PredictionStrike Inc., in Bay Shore, New York; Sweepstakes Limited, in Limassol, Cyprus; and VGW LuckyLand, Inc. in San Francisco, California.
