Borgata Linked Online Sites Launch Live Dealer Games in New Jersey
New Jersey’s online casino market remains vibrant as a second online casino brand and its affiliated sites have begun offering live dealer casino games.
BorgataCasino.com and its affiliated sites playMGM and PartyPokercasino have quietly soft-launched live dealer games. They join GoldenNuggetcasino.com and its affiliated site Betfair.com in offering live dealer play.
In New Jersey, online gambling sites must be affiliated with Atlantic City casinos—in this case the Borgata and Golden Nugget Atlantic City, respectively.
Borgata’s online offerings are powered by GVC. However, Borgata live dealer games are powered by the same software as GoldenNugget’s games and originate from the same place, Golden Nugget’s live dealer studio, according to OnlinePokerReport.com
According to the report, Borgata entered a deal with Golden Nugget that allows it to share certain live dealer tables. It appears Borgata will also lease space within Golden Nugget’s live dealer studio to offer exclusive-to-Borgata live dealer blackjack tables.
The Borgata sites now offer live-dealer blackjack, roulette, baccarat, casino hold ‘em and casino floor roulette.
GoldenNuggetcasino.com is the leading online casino brand in the state and officials have traced its growth in casino table game revenue to its live dealer choices.
Live dealer offerings are likely to continue to grow as Evolution Gaming has announced plans to open its own live dealer studio in New Jersey.
In another story, 888’s casino site in New Jersey announced it is adding 61 new games under a recent deal with NetEnt games and also IGT—two of the largest providers of online games in the state’s market.
The launch breaks down as 43 games for 888 casino’s site and 18 new games for its mobile app. Officials for the company said in a press release that the site now has the most diverse line-up of games in the market. The games are also available on Harrah’s Atlantic City’s branded website.
The additions seem to be another reaction to Pennsylvania’s move to allow online gambling as 888 has already announced a partnership with that state’s Mount Airy Casino and is increasing its U.S. casino games offerings to complement its poker platforms.
