Streamer-Based Online Casino Coming Soon to New Jersey
July 18, 2022
As a participation entertainment option, eSports has caught the imagination of video gamers worldwide. While the gamers have been afforded the opportunity to compete for millions and someday billions of dollars, eSports has also become a phenomenon as a spectator sport. Through streaming platforms like Twitch, amateur video gamers can watch the pros go at it from the comforts of home while dreaming of the day they too will reach the pinnacle.
It was just a matter of time before the U.S. online gambling community was going to step forward and embrace a similar technology. There is something to be said among recreational gamblers about getting the opportunity to tune in and watch high rollers play online slots or table games. That day has arrived and soon, WynnBET customers in New Jersey will be able to enjoy live streaming through a new platform called LiveSpins.
How Does LiveSpins Work
Imagine for a moment you come home from work, fix dinner, and settle on the couch to eat. While eating, you decide to visit the LiveSpins platform through a link that will be available on the WynnBET NJ website. As you settle in, you can tune in to watch slot players and table gamblers plying their trade, sometimes for big money.
Of course, the streaming service will be by subscription only. If a viewer's subscription is tied to a particular gambler or group of gamblers, the gambler or gamblers will get a cut with a fee going to LiveSpins.
In the future, LiveSpins will likely have a robust celebrity streaming service that will allow gamblers to not only watch celebrities gamble, but they will also get the opportunity to sit at the table and play alongside them. As for the possibilities, it's noteworthy that Shaquille O'Neal and Ben Affleck are already partnered as ambassadors to the WynnBET online gambling brand. Wouldn't it be fun and interesting to be able to play blackjack with either of those superstars?
It's worth noting that LiveSpins would not be the first such streaming service in the gambling community. Twitch has been live-streaming players playing video slots for a few months now. In fact, online slots streaming recently cracked Twitch's content top 10, hitting over 39 million hours of online streaming throughout the world in May of 2022.
Banking on the fact Live Spins has found a very valuable niche, this is what Michael Pedersen, LiveSpins’ chief commercial officer, had to offer in a recent press release:
“It’s a global phenomenon. We’re seeing the same in Asia and Europe. …There are sort of currents flowing through organically in consumer land and we have been fortunate to have the right timing with that current to ride the crest of that wave.”
Before LiveSpins can go live on the WynnBET NJ website, they will need to get approval and licensing from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement. Since there don't appear to be any barriers standing in the way, LiveSpins could go live before the end of summer.
