Casino game developer Greentube has obtained a license in Pennsylvania, marking the fourth US state that will offer its games. In 2021, the Vienna-based NOVOMATIC Interactive division launched in New Jersey. It followed up with launches in Michigan and Connecticut. By entering Pennsylvania, Greentube gains access to one of the nation’s largest states in gross gambling revenue. That will provide a significant opportunity for growth.
The good news is that Pennsylvania players shouldn’t have to wait too long for Greentube’s launch. The developer has partnerships in other states with some of the most popular online casinos in Pennsylvania. Some of the popular Greentube games that players can look forward to include the progressive jackpot series Thunder Cash and Diamond Cash.
The entry into the Keystone State marks another significant milestone in Greentube’s mission to expand its presence in the United States. However, the company faces competition from fellow European developers like Evolution and White Hat that are also eyeing the lucrative US online casino market.
What Games Should Pennsylvania Players Expect?
Greentube primarily offers real money slots. Its Diamond Cash and Thunder Cash series have linked progressive jackpots with prizes often exceeding $100,000. Some of the most popular titles from those series include:
- Diamond Cash Mighty Elephant
- Diamond Cash Mighty Emperor
- Thunder Cash Sizzling Hot
- Thunder Cash Fruity Fruity
Outside those progressive networks, another favorite title is Apollo God of the Sun. It features ten reels divided into two sets of 5×4 and 5×12 with 100 paylines. Some of the special features include Stacked Wilds and Free Spins. Some online casinos in Pennsylvania might also offer the game with the 10 Series Win Ways mechanics.
The Win Ways series is Greentube’s take on the popular Megaways slots. The mechanic adds thousands of ways to win by removing symbols that are part of a winning combination. New symbols fall into their place, creating more opportunities to win. In Apollo’s case, there is a max of 251,957 Win Ways. Many of Greentube’s popular slots are available with Win Ways, including Sizzling Hot, Book of Ra, and Feeling Fruity.
Another Greentube slot to try is Wings of Fortune, which is offered with a progressive jackpot at some casinos. Wings of Fortune resembles the famous 88 Fortunes slot and offers four jackpots. A unique feature of the slot is the two wild symbols, one of which doubles all wins.
Aside from slots, Greentube also develops table games and video poker. The company offers multiple variants of roulette, blackjack, and video poker.
European Companies Are Gaining Market Share
Since entering the US in 2021, Greentube has made several steps to solidify its presence and provide a better experience to US players. The company acquired the US development studio Present Creative. Greentube also gained a 40% stake in another US studio, Flamingocatz. Greentube also acquired Alteatec, a leader in gaming software. Alteatec’s Olympus One technology, which features a powerful Remote Gaming Server and Safe Server, has grown tremendously across the world.
Greentube is one of many European gaming companies looking to capitalize on the growing US online casino market and Pennsylvania in particular.
Malta-based White Hat Studios specializes in interactive pop culture slots. It has expanded quickly since its launch in the US in 2022, including a recent partnership with Caesars in Pennsylvania. Many White Hat titles are based on popular movies and series, including Ted, the Goonies, Beavis and Butthead, and the upcoming Peaky Blinders slot. Some are also part of the company’s Jackpot Royale progressive jackpot network. Outside Pennsylvania, White Hat Studios’ games are available in Connecticut, Michigan, and New Jersey.
Caesars recently announced another significant partnership in Pennsylvania. Players at Tropicana Online Casino and Caesars Sportsbook & Casino in the Keystone State can now play Evolution’s live dealer games. The collaboration between Evolution and Caesars Digital will offer live dealer versions of games like blackjack, baccarat, craps, and Texas Hold ’em.
The launch at Caesars and Tropicana in Pennsylvania came just a week after the Sweden-based Evolution launched live dealer craps in Michigan. Due to the success of its live dealer games in the US, Evolution plans to bring more unique titles from Europe, including game shows.
