"Moreover, the West Virginia market has enjoyed tremendous growth since moving to regulate iGaming activity and we're overjoyed to bring our games to the state's players, kicking off an exciting new chapter. Owing to West Virginia's favorable gaming climate and robust legislation, Hacksaw Gaming is perfectly positioned for continued growth on the international stage. We'll be aiming to expand our US presence across additional states by teaming up with a number of tier-one operators in the coming months."
