Gambling.com still has plans to expand to other states where there is proper regulation of online gambling. Their goal is to offer disruptive products and services that will include mobile betting services.

“As the American market grows, it’s critical to have resources like Gambling.com and Bookie.com in the conversation to steer consumers toward the safe and regulated gaming environment. With a massive population of die-hard sports fans, Pennsylvania will surely become one of the largest sports betting markets in the U.S.,” said Charles Gillespie, the CEO of Gambling.com Group Plc.
