SiGMA Play, a B2C affiliate portal, has obtained a licence for iGaming and Sports Wagering from the West Virginia Lottery Commission. This is the second acquisition for SiGMA Play this year, having recently obtained a New Jersey licence in early June.
A rapidly growing branch of the SiGMA Group brand, the SiGMA Play website was launched in 2020.
This new acquisition underscores the brand’s dedication to establishing a presence in the North American market and will allow SiGMA Play to work with iGaming operators that also hold a licence in the state.
The affiliate licence extends to the Group’s emerging tech and iGaming sectors, namely AIBC, SiGMA, and all CasinoBee brands.
Commenting on this achievement, Mex Emini, MD of SiGMA Play, said, “We are pleased to announce that we have successfully acquired an iGaming licence for the state of West Virginia. This will be an instrumental stepping stone towards establishing SiGMA Play as the go-to source for all things iGaming, allowing us to provide an unparalleled gaming experience to the players of West Virginia.
